The best path to knowledge is to look to the experienced professionals for information, which will help assure youre not wasting your time and money, and possibly risking your life in the process. Sourcing Information is like sourcing water; good water sustains life, bad water may kill you Capt. William Simpson USMM Its hard enough to prepare for unexpected events that have a statistically relevant chance of occurring in our lifetimes without worrying or trying to prepare for possibilities that are statistically speaking, ridiculously remote. Of course, if youre one of those people who, because they purchased a lottery ticket today, believe they are going to win Powerball tomorrow, then good luck! This article focuses on developing disaster survival strategies that are statistically relevant to average Americans, and range from the most common localized emergencies and disasters to the more complex less frequent yet credible large-scale disaster scenarios. How-To Develop Your Own Suite Of Preparedness Strategies By using logic and statistical analysis, you can develop disaster preparedness strategies by taking all the hype and emotion out of the process and instead, use proven methodologies that are offered by genuine experts to prepare in a manner that is both measured and proportionate to the risk being addressed. In survival circles discussing the very basics, you will hear about the Rule of 3: If a person is deprived of air for 3 minutes, that person would likely die. If a person is deprived of water for 3 days, that person would likely expire.

Exclusive Book Review: ‘Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community: Building a Civil Defense Plan for a Long-Term Catastrophe’ by Michael Mabee

Although the blaze was the largest ever of its type in our community of 7,000, they were on spot, working as a team through out the day. Teams were rotated in and out to avoid exhaustion and decisions regarding what to do and how to do it were made quickly and decisively. For anyone with a prepping mentality, having the ability to switch our brains into autopilot immediately after an emergency is critical. There is no time to check the rule book and certainly there is no manual at your fingertips telling you what steps to take and when to take them. All of this must come from instinct that has been learned through disciplined practice. Identify an escape route in case you need it later Bugging in is always preferable to bugging out but if a fireball, a tsunami, or a marauding gang of thugs is headed your way, know when it is time to leave and how to get to where you are going. Dont simply make a plan and stick it away in a binder somewhere. Practice grabbing your bug-out-bag and getting out of your home quickly. It also is a good idea to have two or more escape routes you just never know.

So, I looked it up for a better understanding. Onedefinition in part reads: civil protection an effort to protect citizens (generally non-combatants) fromattack. Hmmm, I see. The authorexplains that a prepared family in a prepared community has a much greater chance of survival. This is the concept he is referring to as a “civil defense’ community (my “ah-hah” moment.) Think for a moment of the logistics of trying to protect yourself and family from all the desperate unprepared refugees in your town or city after a catastrophic event. Now imagine if these refugees were actually preparedness-mined towns people (but then they wouldnt be called refugees just sayin.) By having as many ailigned people as possible in a town, there would be no need for people to have individual protection measures set in place inside the community and instead all could focus on protecting the community as a whole from outside forces. The author uses his personal disaster experiences and his life skills as an EMT, paramedic, LEO (law enforcement officer) and veteran to personalize the book when discussing such topics as, the importance of creating a prepared community; drafting a civil defense/community survival plan; and, how to build a strong security force to name a few. He also addresses groups you would find within a civil defense community; such asmedical, food, water, security, communications, sanitation and yes even law and order, and finance. I found myself chortling at times humor is a greatway tohelp peopleremember things andthe author subtly used his sense of humor to drive home a points. But, he also has those gulp moments such as when he poses the question, What could possibly be worse than a nuclear war where we all die instantly? Answer: One where we dont. See what I mean?
