If an emergency or disaster strikes are you prepared?  This is a question you need to ask yourself honestly when it comes to survival and preparedness.  If you have the skills, the gear, the knowledge and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances your chances for survival increase dramatically.

Hurricanes, Tornados, Power Outages, Floods, Civil Unrest, Societal Breakdown, etc., are all things which could happen to anyone, anywhere.  Therefore it is imperative to be prepared with adequate emergency shelter, food, water, first aid items, self defense strategies and the right attitude and mindset which allows you to persevere, overcome and survive.

Bad times can often bring out the worst in people so having the ability to properly defend yourself and weather out any potential disaster scenarios takes on vital importance.  Review your survival plans frequently and make changes as needed.  Study and implement the best methods to prepare for disasters and above all do what is necessary to stay safe.

There you have it; that’s all it takes, refuse to be a victim.  Whether in your personal or professional life all you need to do is have the mindset that you will not be a victim.  Once that mindset is developed, everything else becomes easy.  People with a victims mentality attract predators and manipulators, people with a survival and confident mentality keep predators and manipulators at bay.

Once you have decided to not be a victim, then doors of opportunity open.  Your confidence increases, your interests broaden and you will develop a clarity of purpose.  Keep moving forward, train vigilantly in self defense techniques and in the proper use of firearms and practice, practice, then practice some more. 

Remember each person is individually responsible for their own safety and security.  Don’t delegate that responsibility to someone else.  Make sure you have the skill and the will to defend yourself properly if and when the situation arises. Criminals look for easy targets of opportunity so make yourself a hard target.  Refuse to be a victim!

When it comes to preparing for whatever disasters you anticipate might head your way; everyone needs to have a good survival plan.  The following is my plan.

  • Assess the threat and respond accordingly.
  • Maintain and review inventory of prepped supplies and keep sufficient quantities on hand.
  • Keep small amounts of bills and coins set aside, as funds through ATM’s, etc., may not be available if the power is out.
  • Food and water are top priorities so make sure there is plenty available.  A 3 months supply per person including for your pets is a good goal to strive for.
  • Guns and sufficient ammo are essential for self defense as well as having proper training in their defensive applications.
  • Proper clothing and available medicines should be ready and waiting.
  • Your reliable vehicles should all have full gas tanks and there should be a sufficient quantity of spare 5 gallon gas cans filled and ready for use.
  • Make sure there is sufficient wood and duraflame logs for the fireplace or woodstove.
  • Make sure there is sufficient charcoal available for the grill.
  • Keep communications gear fully charged and ready to go.
  • Have a sufficient supply of plywood and screws in case anything needs to be boarded up.
  • Stay positive and be prepared to adapt as needed.
  • Do not overlook personal security.
  • Have a working generator available with appropriate power cords and fuel.
  • Remember accurate information is critical.

During times of disaster people will become desperate and will resort to acts of violence and desperation.  An outlaw mentality will develop as some people begin to feel that society is to blame and that they are entitled to things which they are not entitled to.

If commerce becomes disrupted you must rely on your own logistics.  Your goal is to survive a disaster in a better position than those who have not taken the time or effort to prepare themselves.  Make sure you know your limitations.  You must know what you are capable of and under what conditions you are capable of performing these tasks in.

Mark the dates for Gridex II which are November 13, 14, 2013.  This is when the cyberattack, physical attack simulation drills are supposed to occur representing an electrical grid shutdown of the United States, Mexico and Canada. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, government agencies, and 150 private businesses will be participating in the drills.  It is considered crisis management practice in case the grid ever goes down for real and will focus on the governments reaction to dealing with no power, supply chain collapses, stoppage of food and fuel distribution, communications blackouts, etc.  Mark your calenders just in case the power in your area goes down as part of the drill.

In any defensive scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of self defense.  Based on circumstances the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.

Many times  disasters occur without warning.  It could be anything from hurricanes, to extended power outages, to violent crime, to societal breakdown, etc.  It is always best to prepare in advance for potential situations which could occur, rather than be caught unprepared if and when they do occur.

Here are some things I consider important enough to prepare right now. 

  • Stock up on non perishable food and water now.  At least 3 months worth per person.  This also includes a 3 months supply of food and water for each of your pets.  A cool, dry basement is a great place to set up shelving units to hold these supplies.
  • Batteries; yes you will absolutely need them for everything from flashlights to radios.  Stock up on as many as you can.  I keep mine in ziploc bags which are then placed in lots of empty coffee cans by battery size.  Keep your rechargeable and disposable batteries in seperate areas.
  • Maintain your perimeter security by keeping doors, windows and garages locked, walk your property daily to make sure it is secure and use wireless motion detector alert systems.  Big dogs work well also.  Mine is an Alaskan Malamute.
  • Keep your communications gear fully charged including cell phones and 2 way radios.
  • Obtain proper training and get your pistol permit.  Also obtain proper training in the use of shotguns and rifles as well.  Have your firearms ready with sufficient ammunition available and train on a regular basis with each of your firearms.  There is no such thing as having too much properly stored ammunition.
  • Have a sharp knife, as well as reliable hand tools available.  Also have a sufficient quantity of spare plywood and nails and screws.
  • An 8,000 to 10,000 watt generator is a must, along with a power cord to attach it to your previously installed whole house power outlet and a sufficient supply of safely stored, stabilized gasoline to run the generator. About 20, red 5 gallon each gasoline cans should do it.  20×5 = 100 gallons.
  • Keep well supplied first aid kits available and know how to properly use them.
  • Have a written survival plan and familiarize yourself with it.
  • Did I mention firearms 🙂  Own them, train with them, and become proficient in their use; as applies to a variety of possible defensive scenarios.

There are many important things to know about freedom and government.  Below are some of what I consider to be the most important ones.

  • Your elected representatives could care less about your opinions and interests unless of course you are a major financial donor.
  • Governments will use fear as a weapon and by doing so, create real or imagined threats that they will claim only the government can solve.
  • Never waive or give up your rights under any circumstances.
  • Strangers are just that, strangers, so do not engage in talking to them about anything private or sensative.
  • Never make an assumption that an expert is really an expert.
  • If you have fundamental differences with certain people it is a waste of time to argue issues, politics or philosophies with them.
  • Avoid the victim mentality.  Take responsibility for your decisions.
  • Consider nothing as true until you verify it.
  • Freedom means never having to beg the government for your fundamental rights.
  • It is okay not to respect a political office if you don’t respect the person in that office.
  • Draw your line in the sand so that you know what you will and what you won’t tolerate.
