One of the oldest survival / emergency preparedness / prepping sites on the web.
In recent years there have been examples of many of these threats to ourselves and our way of life:
- anthrax and bombs in the mail
- the Great Blackout of 2003
- the 2005 Hurricane Season, Katrina and the destruction of New Orleans
- civil unrest and riots during the 2016 election cycle
- forest fires in western states
- continued civil unrest at political events (protests and counter protests)
- record breaking temperatures (hot and cold)
- record breaking rain, snow and draught
- drug resistant "super bugs"
- pesticide resistant weeds
We have seen that these events are very real. We are warned daily of the potential for more terrorist attacks, of increasingly unpredictable and extreme weather, the possibility of a Global Pandemic and other emergencies with devastating effects.
We have become more aware that the world we live in is not a paradise where we may remain ignorant of the people around us and their intentions, the dangers inherent in our society and economy, or the havoc that nature can wreak upon us. We have seen that the government can not predict, plan, prepare or deal with emergencies; that we can not depend on government to make the correct or timely decisions and actions.
We are alone and can only depend on ourselves. That means that we must make plans, gather supplies and learn new skills so that we can cope with whatever emergency we may have to confront.
These are the buzzwords of our time. No longer are "Survivalists" or "Preppers" seen as being on the fringe of society, with the government advising us to make plans and store supplies, "Survivalists" / "Preppers" and "survivalism" / "prepping" have become main stream.
