5 Skills Invaluable in a Long-Term Disaster

5 Skills that Will Become Invaluable in a Long-Term Disaster

5 Skills Invaluable in a Long-Term DisasterAccording to the American Prepper Network, the five main skills needed for a long-term disaster are abilities related to power, water, shelter, food, and basic survival skills. My take on this is very similar, except that I’ve replaced power generation experience with medical experience. After all, mankind has gone without eletricity for a far longer time than we’ve relied upon it. On the other hand, doctors, nurses and others with expertise in keeping people healthy will be in great demand in a survival situation. Read more “5 Skills Invaluable in a Long-Term Disaster”

David A. Vine “All Hazards Communications Preparedness” Audio player below

Grid Down Black Sky EventImagine waking up in the middle of the night. You are suddenly jarred awake by a strange warning siren you rarely hear. You’re equipped with a NOAA Weather Radio in your bedroom but it hasn’t gone off. Is it the bad storm you heard about earlier.

Darn, there’s no power and you forgot to change the backup battery you installed when you set up the radio a few years ago. Now you’re starting to get worried. What’s happening??? Just like you, your neighbors have gone outside to see what’s going on. They are talking with each other in hushed voices and you’re starting to get edgy. Read more “Grid Down Black Sky Event!”

Safety Tips for Driving Through and Avoiding Flash Floods

Safety Tips for Driving Through and Avoiding Flash Floods
By: H. Davis

Floods

A natural disaster can happen without warning, striking at anytime, anywhere. They can cause thousands of dollars in damage, especially when it comes to fast-moving water — also known as floods. That’s because most cars can be swept away in just 20 inches of water. In deep water, however, cars can sink, and lives can be lost as a result. While most motorists understand the risk of driving through water, some might feel like invincible drivers. Although places like Louisiana are well-known for extreme flooding, the truth is, flooding happens in every state. Massachusetts, Minnesota, Texas, and Washington DC, for example, all experienced floods Read more “Safety Tips for Driving Through and Avoiding Flash Floods”

Understanding and Mastering the Bugout!

Understanding and Mastering the Bugout Process
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio player below!

Understanding and Mastering the BugoutFor a long time I have been looking for the best way to really dig into the bugout process. There is probably no other part of prepping that has more air time than the bugout. It’s a very popular topic and for good reason. The problem I find, most often, with the bugout is that it is rarely allotted the time it deserves. You see, the bugout cannot be explained in a mere 2000 words. Part of it could be handled but you could never do a 45 minute podcast on the bugout and touch everything. Read more “Understanding and Mastering the Bugout!”
