Posts Tagged ‘Grid Down’

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.

When it comes to dealing with survival scenarios cities are one of the most dangerous places to be.  Here’s why.

  • Cities rely heavily on food being transported in.  If the transportation of food stops then the food supply stops and panic ensues.
  • Riots and other societal disorders generally occur in cities.  Being caught in a riot is not only dangerous but can be life ending.
  • Power grid failure means everything in the cities stops working.  No drinking water, no lights, no heat.
  • Just try getting out of the city during a disaster.  Traffic jams will be everywhere.
  • Gun control restrictions for law abiding citizens are generally stricter in the cities which means legally defending yourself and your property becomes harder.
  • Looting on a massive scale is a phenomena that occurs in cities when disaster strikes.  Think dialing 911 will help, think again.  Looters will outnumber the police significantly and let’s face it, cops have families of their own to look after in a survival crisis.

Unless living in the city is an absolute necessity for you, consider moving to the suburbs or to a rural section of the country to increase your survival chances.
