James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio player below!
We learned a lot over the last two weeks. When we watched Harvey then Irma bear down on our nation it was probably a rude awakening even for some of us who are prepared for disaster. When you see the truly destructive power of nature it often makes you double and triple check your own plans for survival. Continue reading Evacuation: What you haven’t thought about!→
Harvey and Lessons Learned
Micheal Kline “Reality Check” Audio player below!
In this show we are preaching to the choir and beating a dead horse. However, only through repetition do we build muscle memory. We will be reviewing some of the lessons learned from the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. One of the biggest issues people had was the lack of time. People were caught completely off guard and did not have the time to gather clothes, medicine, or valuables. A lot of people were in a state panic Continue reading Harvey and Lessons Learned→
Two shows with a lot of good information starting off with “The Prepared Canadian” and followed by Gary and Brenna of “The Road Less Traveled”.
In this first broadcast Denob asks the questions; Do you have what it takes to survive an evacuation at a moment’s notice?

Planning for Evacuation!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian” Your home is your castle and I’m sure, like me, you don’t plan to leave it all behind unless you absolutely have to. Sometimes though, bugging out is the only option, and the decision to do so may be made for you either by evacuation orders or the nature of a disaster.
Simply put, no one can say that they will never bug out, and there are some important preparations you need to have in place before that need arises. Sure, everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way.
The answers to these questions depend on many factors and there is no one size fits all solution. Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.
Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.

Do you have what it takes to survive an evacuation at a moment’s notice? What would you be left with if your home were destroyed by fire or a tornado? There can be any number of disasters that can force you to leave your home without the time to think. What if you needed to get home from work after disaster strikes? Will you be ready to care for your kids or pets?
This week on The Prepared Canadian, we will take a look at bags…bug our bags, get home bags, everyday carry bags, as well as special consideration for pets and kids. Not just what to put in them, but why you need them in the first place. In addition, we will have two tips for five dollar preparedness, news from the blog and the forum, a fantastic prepper website of the week, and of course, my weekly editorial.
