Posted on 01/02/2011 11:32:16 PM PST by Kartographer
With the holiday season upon us and 2011 fast approaching, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is encouraging all Americans to make emergency preparedness one of their New Year's resolutions for the coming year.
Throughout the rest of December, FEMA will promote Resolve to be Ready in 2011, a nationwide effort to urge individuals, families, businesses and communities to focus on being ready and aware of all the hazards that exist in their communities.
Thomas Horn, CEO of www.SurvivorMall.com supports FEMA's national readiness effort.
Horn, a semi-retired minister considers himself a reasonable man with a well-balanced outlook on the future.

For those who wish you can down load a copy of my Preparedness Manual at:
I bet he does!
An EMP followed by anarchy?
mobs of entitlement people, cut off from the teat?
more so the start of the
“Tell on your freinds and neighbors” campagn
Every up and coming dictatorship always used their food distribution division to start the campagn by the community to tell on others, for whatever reason, hording food, supplies, firearms, bad thoughts, saying things against the government......
From the Brown Shirts then the Black Shirts, to the military dictatorship, all in the name of social assistance and being aware!!!!
Why is FEMA preparing for Emergency situations... what do they know that we will find out soon enough...
Socialist Government Power Grab.... already here...
New “wizz bang” drama that allows the current CIC to take control of the country for our own sakes, thus cementing his power till he passes on..... even the Vagas bookies will not give you negative odds on that one
BATFE has all the firearms, ammo and magazine production/sales info.
Maybe they think some of us are a little too prepared.
1) always buy firearms and ammo and spares in cash in person
2) remember not to take any of the above out fishing with you if they were purchased under ffl or by credit card as the odds of them being lost in a terrible boating accident are oh so high.
3) always remember when the SHTF comes, you best have toilet paper and asprin in that kit, or the wife/girlfriend/family is going to make you pay for it till doomsday.
There’s a reason there are so many zombie shows and movies out lately! ;)
Anyone mixing FEMA and their personal preps is doomed.
Hello, I am from the government and am here to help you.
“Seems FEMA is really starting to push this agenda....”
Has anyone else noticed the sudden onset of television commercials for ‘readiness’ and the gov. website?
That is EXACTLY what I thought.
Yes, and it inspired me to rethink my basic "bailout bag". Here it is, in the "before" configuration:
After considering all the government had to say, I realized what I had to add to the kit:
Maxpedition Bags are by far the best. Yes they are expensive, but well worth it.
I personally have the Centurion as my SHTF bag and it holds EVERYTHING.
I have the Operator at the office and Versipac Jumbo for knocking around.
I love their products and its well worth the added costs.
Thanks for the ping!
I agree about Maxpedition, but this UTG, at about 3/4 the price, is identical in quality, and almost identical in appearance with the Maxpedition. The main difference seems to be the size and shape of the accessory pockets. Some have velcro on them, others have MOLLE loops.
I own both Maxpedition and "brand x" bags, and even the stitching is identical. There are more variations and colors with Maxpedition, and their designs always appear on the market first. Then about six months later, Cheaper than Dirt, Sportsmans Guide and other sites start showing their near-identical bags, also made in Taiwan.
One item of field gear that I recommend highly, and sells for about $14 is a Chinese "clone" of the special magazine carrier for the Beta C-mag. It's about 25% larger, and 200% better made, with real foam padding in the sides. The US magazine, and its Korean-made clone, use exactly the same flimsy nylon construction of Vietnam-era field gear, complete with Alice clips. The chicom pouch comes in several camo patterns, and has both shoulder straps and PALS strips.
It's big and bulky, but it lets you carry things that are also big and bulky. Here's the standard case, along with the Chinese model that can handle odd stuff like eight mags for the FN P90, or eight H&K UMP magazines.
I heard a commercial on the radio for this for the first time today. FIrst thoughts I had are what do they know and when?
“Seems FEMA is really starting to push this agenda, I wonder what they know?”
I have trouble believing anything from the government. I really don’t think they have our best interests at heart. They will protect themselves and their ‘real’ constituents first.
