Skip to comments.City Of Philadelphia Advises Residents On What To Do If Ordered To ‘Shelter In Place’
Posted on 04/27/2013 10:28:35 PM PDT by Kartographer
During last weeks events in Boston, residents were told to shelter in place, which raises the question, would you know what to do if a similar order was issued in Philadelphia?
In the Emergency Management section of the City of Philadelphias website, there are now some guidelines for residents to follow.
First and foremost, the city says residents should be prepared to shelter in place for at least three days, which means stocking supplies like medications, food, batteries, drinking water, flashlights and more inside of an emergency kit.

I like the comments at the link.
City of Brotherly Love can do what they like. As for me and my house? We'll play things by ear.
Your homes are now jail cells.
We don’t want you to be responsible for your own neighborhoods.
Try to help us and we’ll shoot you.
Try to leave and we’ll shoot you.
Try to prevent us from a warrantless search of your home and we’ll shoot you.
Try to assert your rights, we’ll shoot you.
I hate this socialist police state. Demonic jack-booted thug assholes. Thinking they’re Joe Awesome and everyone loves them. Get treated like a frikking criminal cell block search in your own damn home and see if you still think cops are awesome.
I’ve said it before, the way to change these things, like Obamacare and sheltering, is mass non-compliance.
that is folking bee ess I will refuse any shelter in place orders those sons of beaches want to promulgate. folk that!
Boston’s “sheltering in place” sure looked a hell of a lot like martial law.
Your homes are now jail cells.
We dont want you to be responsible for your own neighborhoods.
Try to help us and well shoot you.
Try to leave and well shoot you.
Try to prevent us from a warrantless search of your home and well shoot you.
Try to assert your rights, well shoot you.

Submit or die. You must be a good Citizen.
The only question is how many I would take with me....
Citizens of Philadelphia who live in gang-infested and crime infested neigbhorhoods are already in “Shelter in Place.” Many cannot go out of doors at night without great risk of life and limb.
It’s funny but I lived in North Philly on Broad near Diamond during the 60’s at college and I felt more safe than the people there today. Broad and Diamond was the drug center of the ghetto back then, yet white kids could go to the Apollo theater without any hassle.
The Democrats have set back crime control, civil rights, and decency at least a century with their paternalistic, plantation addiction, welfare mentality, and the decent black people suffer the most from it.
If there is a revolution in Philly, it is going to come from the Democrat-oppressed blacks who want to get off of welfare addiction, having a plantation, “Yes Massa” subservience to the Democrat Party, and want their dignity as people back.
All I can say is, in the immortal words of H. Rap Brown, “Burn, Baby, Burn”.
Some call it revolution; others call it urban renewal, and the smart ones call it taking their city and lives back.
Good luck, brothers. You now know who the real enemy is. It’s up to you to take the next step, whatever it may be.
Surprized Philly CBS didn’t cite Watertown as an example of “citizen compliance”. Like that network did while it was going on. Bunch of creeps...
I’ve got your back. We’ll take out as many as possible.
I like stories like this. It reminds me that when the Islamic Jihad poop hits the fan, it’s not going to fling any feces out here in the country where my family is located. No. The poop will hit the fan and fly right in the faces of the concentrated Democrat parasite nests (”cities”), and that’s right where it deserves to hit.
you got that right, they are already sheltering in place, just not from swat teams ready to break their doors down. unless an unnamed criminal informant gave their address, then the swat will come and shoot the dog and tear the house up and terrorize everyone.
One has to wonder what would have happened....had this event in Boston occurred in Texas or Alabama.
My humble guess is that the entire state population would have been armed and prepared to take on the two characters, without much aide from the federal or state police.
There are exceptions to even that rule (See Dallas/Fort Worth MSA).
Great Post and absolutely true.
Shelter in Place is even worse than martial law.
What kind of authority can they use to order such a thing?
My answer to shelter in place is : Bite me.
Philadelphia...the home of cowards and “chicken littles.”
Political zombies who blindly follow the barks of their masters.
Won’t sheltering in place disrupt the Call to Prayer?
The Muslim Brotherhood could be offended!
Every time I read a government advisement that says "stock up on medications" I make one of those "yeah, right" snorty sounds.
You can't just "stock up" on medications. More and more pharmacists will not give give any more than the prescription dictates and they won't even let you overlap a new prescription until the old one is (by definition) complete.
Doctors really don't have much to say about it.
The best you can do if your prescription is going to run out while you're traveling is to find a pharmacy close to where you'll be staying and have your prescription filled there.
That’s what I call the abuse of the power of suggestion.
Nope. Not a snowball's chance in Hades will they give up Santa Clause.
Read the article, it sounds like they are worried about chemical weapons.
Those democratic parasite nests set the bar for everything the govt does, ignore them at your peril.
If each took only one step then the problem could be solved in short order.......
Shades of Nazi Germany!
It's part of what Sam Francis called anarcho-tyranny. In his depiction the citizens get endlessly harassed while criminals roam free. For example there would be prosecution on trumped up charges of "right wing extremists" who write about things like welfare reform under the 1st Amendment while promoting welfare payments for actual Muslim terrorists. One of the basic motivations for anarcho-tyranny is that it is much easier and safer for the cops to go after the nonviolent citizens than to confront dangerous terrorists or criminals. He only died a few years ago, but would probably still be surprised at the level of support for the current A-T, e.g. nullifying the fourth in Watertown is ok for a terrorist (who turned out to be unarmed) but walking safely down the street any other time is impossible thanks to the state-promoted criminal culture.
Yup. That was my first thought about Boston when they told people the day it happened to “stay inside.” It wasn’t just stay home, it was “stay inside.” One of my posts initially pointed the changed language.
On 9/11 many were told to go get your kids from school and go home. We were never told to “stay inside.”
We’ve had bombings before and have never been told to “stay inside.” Think about that...we’ve had bombers on the loose before these two jihadi nuts and have never been told to “stay inside” or “shelter in place.”
Something is more than up as far as I am concerned. They know something and are trying to not panic the public. They are nudging you to prepare, but many won’t and when it really happens...many will die from their lack of prepping.
And then when the third bomb happens the order will be to “shelter in place,” until they come for us. And many will be transported to “safety.” You will never return home again and you will be like a refugee in your own land.
A four-minute instructional video released by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) entitled Active Shooter Situation: Options for Consideration is filled with numerous suggestions for people confronting an active shooter, including evacuating the area, hiding from the shooter, warning others about the danger, locking and blocking doors, and silencing cellphones. Only in the gravest extreme, however, is resistance recommended:
If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available.
Actually no it was not worse than martial law because the government cannot legally have dictated anyone to stay at home in the absence of greater circumstances. What happened in Boston was clearly called a voluntary advisory and not an order, and there were no reports of police harassment from residents who were traveling from one place to another in the Boston area. Another consideration in this particular case is that downtown Boston is relatively geographically small and densely populated and dependent upon public transit so it was probably prudent to shut train service down early as a precautionary measure. A more sprawling metropolis like Houston or Jacksonville would be completely different kind of demographic terrain for police and the public alike.
” Options for Consideration is filled with numerous suggestions for people confronting an active shooter,
I think we should consider all armed bureaucrats “active shooters”.
Definitely the best Rowdy Roddy Piper movie.
You are fooling yourself if you think blacks are going to fix Philly. They are the ones who ruined it.
Do you realize that there are ladies present on this forum? I am one, and I request, please, that you proofread your posts so that there is no offensive language in them.
I realize that there are many topics here that get many of us riled up, but, please, sir, consider tempering your word choice. You can still make an excellent argument without employing vulgarities. Thank you.
Then how are these people supposed to use their free EBT cards and buy their crack?
On the other hand, at least they will be able to communicate with their friends on their free 0bamafoams, so all is not lost!
Many freepers are not by any means conservative. Do you remember the nauseating day in the life of GWB threads? The man was at best a rino, but you'd think he was the second coming of George Washington to read the estrogen fueled comments on those threads. Then there are the cop worshipers. We've seen enough of those in the last few days. Then there are the gun control background check advocates, The list is endless. And this is what you find on a supposedly CONSERVATIVE forum.
Nobody needs to worry their pointed little heads I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that al Quaeda is attempting to get their hands on Syrian bio/chem weapons and Philly is giving instructions on shelter in place for a bio/chem weapons attack.
Yes it’s just a coincidence.
Now everybody turn, face DC and sing “All Hail Obama” and feel good.
Can’t take the heat? Stay out of the kitchen.
What happened in Boston was clearly called a voluntary advisory and not an order, and there were no reports of police harassment from residents who were traveling from one place to another in the Boston area.
True ! I work in downtown Boston everyday. No one was making you stay off the streets, No one was stopping vehicle traffic. I was walking around and stopped to talk to many Police officers about what was going on, while wearing a black backpack. The city was empty because most people used it as an excuse not to go to work that day.
I’m totally for “sheltering in place” - until gunpoint, that is. :(
