Terror Tips

Apologize for the cut & paste- here's what I could gather quickly-- first, good advice from our own Utah Girl:

Here is a thread I put together last year right after 9/11. It contains information on a 72 hour kit, the kit has everything in it that one person would need for 72 hours. One can grab it and run. There is also information there about home food storage, using and storing food all the time.

Emergency Preparedness (year's supply of food, 72 hour kit)

Appreciate the info, and my kindest regards to you and your son.

We all need to be more aware of our surroundings, and think about the things we would need if society were disrupted... I'll admit being less prepared than I used to be, mostly because we lack the money needed to lay in supplies- but we keep basic weaponry, medicine, auxillary lights and radios- stuff like that- handy.

My fallback plan ( since we live in a wooden house in a small city, which is virtually indefensible ) is to retreat to my wife's workplace, about 25 miles out in the country.

Yeah, I'm just amazed that the goobermint is promoting the breaking of their own stupid hoarding laws . I brought this up on a different thread also. Sorry for the stalking. They have so many laws they starting to trip over their own socialism and sedition.

I strongly suggest self reliance for each individual and their families. National emergency or not. Legal or not......

Stay Safe !

The biggest issue is just having some plain old horse sense about this. We are all too eager to fasten on to the "sugar tit" of the government for this all most other issues. Publik Schools come to mind.

Regarding sealed rooms, this was sent to me:


CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2)caution

Never exceed a CO2 percentage in a room by 3%. To determine how long you can stay in an enclosed room use this rule of thumb formula: length x width x height of room in feet x .03 (number of people in room) = Safe Stay Time (SST) in hours.

I have to run, but briefly, the closer you are to a city whose name is well-enough known to garner a lot of publicity if attacked, the higher your odds of being in danger. JMO, doesn't sound like you need to prepare a room. Supplies for a power outage are always wise to have on hand, however.
