Large Solar Flares Among Threats To Power Grid

Two major threats have the ability to partially or completely destroy the power grid: electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Nuclear blasts can cause EMPs, and large solar flares can cause CMEs.

Be Thrifty and Simplify: Your Hedge Against Hard Economic Times

Are you in financial trouble? Are you unemployed? Are you in danger of losing your home? Are your debts draining your income and savings? Are you worried about the future? What will your children and grandchildren do if we have an economic collapse? Perhaps you are one of the millions of people that want the government to fix this problem. The truth is that the fix begins with us. We can take control of our own situations and change how we deal with the problems the government has gotten us into.

Develop Situational Awareness

With time being limited and the economy being the way that it is, it’s important to identify preparedness and survival skills that you can learn and practice quickly and inexpensively. One of the most important skills that you can learn happens to be free to practice: situational awareness.

Make Your Own Solar Cooker

A friend of mine introduced me to the concept of making a solar oven out of three square mirrors inside a box or crate. I believe it is imperative that we have skills that help us be better prepared in case of emergency. Learning how to make and use a solar cooker is one of those skills.

Efficient Food For Survival

Just like with a car, if you run your body on the fuel that it’s designed to burn, it will have more power, run more efficiently and have less waste. Even more importantly from a preparedness perspective, if you eat foods that your body can burn and use efficiently, you don’t need to eat as much.

Cook With The Sun Using The SUN OVEN®

We have no idea whether we will be hit by a natural disaster, a manmade disaster or even an economic collapse. With the SUN OVEN® you can be assured that you will have a way to cook no matter what happens. The SUN OVEN® can be used anywhere there is sunlight.

Preparedness While Traveling

We’re going to a football game on the weekend of the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. One side of my brain says there’s no extra danger. The other side of my brain says terrorists love anniversaries. In any case, we’re going to go see some football. Am I going to have some stuff in the car in case something happens? Of course I will; I always do.

Building Walls

Following an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it scenario or even a severe economic collapse, one of the most practical security measures that homeowners, neighborhoods and small towns can take is to find ways to increase security with minimal manpower. One of the simplest ways to do this is by using physical barriers.

Convince Reluctant Loved Ones To Prepare

Once you realize how important and urgent it is to prepare your family for disasters, getting loved ones on board can be one of the most frustrating and heartrending parts of the process. This can cause almost as much stress as the disasters you’re trying to prepare for.

Build A Root Cellar To Store Vegetables

I have found that for us to be self-sufficient we must be able to store vegetables and fruit in a cold storage or root cellar. The root cellar provides a safe, stable year-round storage facility for many different types of vegetables that we grow ourselves or would normally find at a farmers market in the fall.
