14 Steps for Being Prepared for Coming Disasters
The following letter was submitted by R. Casey, an informed follower Tami Jackson of SavingOurFuture. What do you think of these 14 Steps? Any that you would add or modify?
I heard your remarks to D.P. on 04-03-15 and I agree that many people are getting concerned about the Iran Nuclear Agreement and the lack of leadership by the White House.
Iran is the major threat according to a plethora of intelligence sources including ex-CIA Director Woolsey. Iranian military doctrine calls for an electromagnetic strike on North America whenever they can get around to it. Since electricity runs everything on our continent it is obvious that a strike against the electrical grid will kill millions. A congressional report on he topic suggests the casualty rate will be 90%.
I’m currently in an emergency planning role in B.C. and I’m not looking for a job, selling a book, or schmooozin for an interview. However being a history buff and a news junky I have the following suggestions to anyone who is concerned. These are very general tips. Each topic will require a modicum of research.
1. If you have the funds, buy a farm. Even 2-10 acres will help. Buy some beef cattle and chickens at first and when time and research permits, you can diversify to dairy cattle, honey bees, hogs or sheep. Beef cattle and chickens are very low maintenance. BTW do not purchase your livestock at an auction house. Many of the animals are the sick/lame animals that everyone wants to dump.
2. You need at least 1 gallon of water per person per day. If you have the funds, drill a well. If not collect water in plastic barrels or 2 litre soda bottles. Water never expires in spite of the “best before date” on your water bottle. A rain catch system will not meet all of your needs, but it is cheap and effective. Remember that a well may require a substantial power system.
3. Buy extra canned goods every time you go to the market. In a short period of time you will accumulate enough food for a few months. Learn how to can. Check out the shelf life for all your goodies. Pasta lasts a long time. Dairy products have to be refrigerated.
4. You absolutely need a portable toilet with a sealable lid. Septic fields may be okay but sewer systems require pumps. Naturally toilet paper and diaper wipes are compulsory.
