Map Of Ebola Quarantine Stations: (shortened)
SHTF Plan ^ | 8/1/14 | Mac Slavo

Posted on 08/01/2014 5:35:08 PM PDT by Kartographer

Despite concerns around the globe that the Ebola virus may continue to spread and mutate into something even more deadly, the director of the CDC attempted to assuage fears about the possibility of an outbreak on U.S. soil.

“It is not a potential of Ebola spreading widely in the U.S.,” director Thomas Friedman told reporters on a conference call Thursday. “That is not in the cards.”

But while the CDC downplays the potential threat, emergency planners behind the scenes have been getting ready since as early as April of this year. In a report presented to Congress while the virus was spreading in West Africa, the Department of Defense said that it has dispatched biological detection kits to National Guard units in all 50 states with the capability of diagnosing the virus in infected patients in as little as 30 minutes.

Hard to know what is going on. On one hand they swear it come here on the other hand it appears that they are prepping for it like crazy. No or they are late with quarantines and yet they are hunting for people that were exposed.

I’m not a Dr or scientist, but let’s see what would have more risk, letting the virus in to the country or not letting it in?

Tough question.

Preppers PING!

Let’s make this our weekly prepper thread.

I’ll go first.

Dak canned ham on sale at CVS two for $5.00

I picked up some nice Coleman brand light sticks at Smiths (Kroger) 25 cents each on clearance.

Last I got this From Marcella on medical gloves:

I will get heavy duty Nitrile Gloves. I have gloves but they are not thick enough to make me comfortable with deadly viruses. Here is some info. on thick ones. I won’t get them here since would have to buy so many.
Marcella

UniSeal® High Risk 13 mil Nitrile Gloves are the latest addition to our Protection Plus Series. Designed with added 13 mil thickness, providing greater barrier protection, and are remarkably comfortable to wear for extended periods.

HIGH RISK ENVIRONMENTS:
EMS/EMT, First Responders, Security

LABORATORY TECHNICIANS
Blood and Biohazardous Material

Hard to know what is going on is right.

Another example of why it's critical to have a government the people can trust; why character matters in elected officials and in the alphabet agencies.

Not to mention a responsible media.

Was this the head of the CDC that left vials of Anthrax in the closet, plague virus in ziplock bags for shipment, etc.? Can already hear the “unexpectedly, the Ebola virus was released into major metropolitan areas todaty”. The head of the CDC says not to worry because we have everything under control. Citizens are requested to report to the assigned FEMA quarantine camp.

Another blithering idiot from Obamaland speaks out. As if this lying POS has any idea whether the Ebola virus will spread in the US. There is one thing I am certain of, and that is that the Ebola virus cannot jump over an ocean. Anyone with half a brain would refuse entry onto any plane or ship heading to the US. No one with Ebola virus should be allowed to enter the US.

Was in Walmart earlier thinking I’d buy some disinfectant wipes that come in the cylindrical plastic containers. They were pricey at 3 containers for just under $10, with I think was 225 total wipes. So I decided instead to go buy isopropyl alcohol and just use paper towels. After all, I’ve had those plastic container wipes dry out here in the high desert. So I went to the shelves where the isopropyl should be and the shelves were bare. Could have bought some grain alcohol but it’s expensive. Figured I’d just use the bleach I have if needed. Perhaps somebody knows which is more effective at killing a virus; bleach or alcohol? More importantly, if Eblola gets loose in this country, I don’t think I want to be in a situation where I need to be sanitizing surfaces. I’m thinking more along the lines of decontamination while taking off gloves and such.

Here is a thought for anyone who saves old telephone books as a substitute for T.P. when the SHTF.

The pages of SHOTGUN NEWS are printed on paper that is at least as thin, if not thinner than that used for telephone books.

The paper seems tough enough and the pages are larger - about 10” X 12”.

Also, an old copy of Shotgun News is a lot more interesting to look through than last years Yellow Pages while sitting on the throne.

I don’t like that they picked all major cities.

They obviously believe they can contain it. But if they are wrong smaller cities would have been a better pick.

The only one that half way makes sense is the one located at the tip of florida. But even that one is Miami.

With the absolute lack of proper response by anyone anywhere on this that is supposed to be responsible my guess is that Ebola is already here.
International travel and lack of any type of quarantine has let the virus travel the globe potentially.
The next few days, two weeks at the most, and we will know just how bad this thing may be and can get.

"Spreading WIDELY... That's not in the cards."

How the hell can the Director CDC be so careless with his choice of words in a public statement? It will spread, just not widely? Ebola virus has playing cards, or the CDC is playing cards with population eradication? Am I reading too much into this phraseology?

Yeah, well, I’m preparing for the worst anyway.

I want to have plenty of medical supplies on hand as I do not want to have my medicines and medical supplies coming from some third world country that is in the throes of an Ebola outbreak.

I figure if I get them now, I have much less of a risk of getting contaminated supplies.

I am also stocking up on household stuff and meat, as I usually do come the fall anyway.

CNY is no picnic in the winter and it looks like the outlook is for another bad one. I always prep for winter anyways so as to avoid hauling in lots of bulky stuff through the snow, ice, and slop.

We live a fair distance from the nearest grocery store so I like to be able to go for a few weeks without needing to run out for every little thing. It would be nice to know that I could avoid human contact for a few weeks, although my husband has to go to work and my 20 something daughter just rolls her eyes a lot about the thought of taking precautions to avoid something like this. She’ll learn.

I’m wondering how Ebola does in a cold climate, whether it kills the virus on environmental surfaces more quickly with the cold and dry.

As I stated earlier in this thread its hard to make heads or tails out of the ‘experts’ words. In one case they declare you have to soak yourself in the infected person’s body fluids, yet they are looking for a great number of people connected to the plane flight that one infected person was on to Nigeria? They say it won’t come to America and yet they are prepping facilities and handing out gear to the military. No quarantines when there should have been and now that they have started them they have to search for people who may have been exposed??

I got so much grief over posting this but here goes again:

I’ve been thinking about this for sometime since they found MERS in the air of a camel barn in Saudi while the Ebola outbreak was growing.

I don’t know if Ebola, MERS or something entirely different will lead to a SHTF event, but with the present ‘Open’ border policy bringing in any number of communicable diseases and the real chance that some carriers could be sent here on purpose as ‘bio bombs’ it brings up a real possibility of extended quarantines being imposed. In fact it may get to a point in which a wise person will impose a quarantine on their family even if health officials don’t.

There are more than a few FReepers who like to point out how silly they see preparing for a ‘Mad Max’ situation is, but what if it isn’t ‘Mad Max’? What if it is something as simple as being able to shelter in place for 30-60 days while an outbreak runs its course? Could you make it through such a quarantine self imposed or mandator with what you have in your home? If you haven’t thought about it maybe its time.

It is your choice you can prep or you can stand around on a bridge waiting for FEMA to bring you a bottle of water, a MRE, a warm blanket and a kiss for your boo-boo and maybe you can even get your picture as you stand there on the national news.

The world is dry tinder just awaiting the right spark.

So listen to what the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. NIV Proverbs 22:3

Selco covers this in this article many times people just can not except that a breakdown is occurring even as they watch it happening before their eyes. Why don’t they realize it? It’s caused by a condition called ‘Normalcy Bias’ a mental state people enter when facing a disaster.

It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. This often results in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure of governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.

A good article on ‘Normalcy Bias’ is on our own ChocChipCookies Blog The Survival Mom:

http://thesurvivalmom.com/2010/12/29/normalcy-bias/

You either prepare and stand on your own beholden to no one or you become dependent on others to provide your basic needs and become their ‘serf’. Me I don’t want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly don’t want to have to kiss some ‘gubberment’ third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I don’t want some ‘jack booted’ thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I don’t want to be shut up in with a bunch of ‘zombies’ and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.

Just getting started or an old hand you might find my Preparedness Manual helpful. You can download the manual at:

http://tomeaker.com/kart/Preparedness1j.pdf NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, cash (I myself have been putting up change for the past few years both for the metal content and the fact that using change places to make what purchases you can will move you down the the list of possible marks during shtf), tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Again I like to recomend FReeper’s ChocoChipCookie Blog The Survival Mom (Please Blog Police let this one slide!) Where you can get lots of useful information like:

http://thesurvivalmom.com/2011/11/20/8-morale-boosters-for-any-worst-case-scenario/

It's the same thing. If one person sneezes, everyone in the radius of 5-10 yards will "soak himself in his body fluids." Perhaps not much, but viruses are very, very small - and Ebola is very, very contagious. Contamination of US-trained doctors who work in Africa cannot be waved away; those people know what they are dealing with - and still they got the bug.

Anyone with half a brain would refuse entry onto any plane or ship heading to the US. No one with Ebola virus should be allowed to enter the US.

Per WHO: "The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms, is 2 to 21 days." There is no way that the USA closes all borders, and there is no way to hold travelers in quarantine for at least 3 weeks. There is no desire to close land borders with Central America (by the way of Mexico) - and those Central American countries will not be obeying a sanitary regime anyway.

This is a classical situation. A prisoner can escape if at least one guard falls asleep. But the warden can keep his job only if none of his guards ever fall asleep. As the time goes by, the chance of any one guard failing his duty grows. Same here - to stop the virus you have to seal *all* entry points. Not "some", and not "most" - all 100% of them. This government does not specialize in perfect execution of its duties, so it's guaranteed that it will fail this one as well. After all, the USA does not elect Presidents because they are smart; the USA elects Presidents who are socially appealing - a sexy man, a black man, or a woman - and, often, a bureaucrat from a clan of bureaucrats. "Prior experience in management is not required."

I think the CDC fears the virus has mutated into an airborne transmissible disease and they desperately want to study it. Or, and I hate to say it, the CDC knows the disease has mutated and they want these two people so they can collect the virus and weaponize it. I trust no one in, or directly associated with the U.S. government anymore.

The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs.

The thing is, this world is in a situation that has never occurred before, what with the technology we have and depend on, the ease with which we can travel, and disease can travel as well. disease can not be spread with a speed never before imagined.

Our situation opens the possibility for scenarios which have never happened before because they COULDN'T happen without these things in place.

For anyone to deny that it could happen because it didn't in the past (because it COULDN'T have happened in the past) is foolhardy.

I'd rather be prepared and not need the stuff, than not be prepared and need it, and kick myself for not having the foresight to take a little prudent action which may or may not have been needed.

I only lose a little if I don't need it.

If I need it, I stand to lose a LOT more.

I do not want regret and remorse to be my companions for the rest of my life.

A doctor mentioned this product to me a while back. It is marketed to barbers/hairdressers but is also used in hospital settings, so I was told. Search online for “Barbicide”, it’s sold on Ebay, Amazon, etc. The right-up, below, is from ebay:

16oz Barbicide King Research Disinfectant Germicide Fungicide and Virucide

The Barbicide Disinfecting Solution, 16 fl oz is a hospital-grade, EPA approved broad-spectrum disinfectant. Keep all of your shears, brushes, implements, tweezers, and combs sanitized.

Perhaps your experience is a one-time thing, but here lately I’ve noticed that my Walmart runs completely out of items on a shelf before they will restock. I’m talking about common, everyday buys like cases of soda, bread, etc, during non-emergency events. (Here in the South, it’s expected that bread and milk empty out due to winter weather forecasts, LOL.) I’m talking about anything you might want from groceries to household supplies to toys and sporting gear. I’ve learned to keep a running list of resupplies to begin shopping when there’s still some in the house.

Formerly, I only did this with dogfood, in case of recalls. That is, buying way ahead of need, stocking up against unavailability. Now it’s for everything. I was flabbergasted the day I found their shelves - huge selection, usually - empty of Walmart brand whole wheat sliced bread. I end up buying 2 new loaves soon as I open the last one.
