Split Second Decisions

Self-Defense-Prepper-Central
There are so many articles on the Internet from people, especially “prepper” websites, in regards to “what would you do in a SHTF situation” scenario. To be honest with you it gets old. In reality, only a fraction of the authors have ever been in a life or death situation where they could not only talk from experience, but give solid advice on what to do if you are ever faced with something like it. While the rest of them are people who are giving their opinions (and you know what they say about opinions), on what they would...

Setting up a quick half-shelter? Tying gear to a tree? Rappelling down a cliff? Do you know what basic knots to use if you needed them? I know most folks will say no, but it is never too late to learn. While this could be a life-saving skill, it is one that should be practiced on a regular basis. You can use knots for things such as tying up bulk trash or putting up a hammock to enjoy a peaceful afternoon. The uses are endless.

Food Wars Could Rage By 2050

Food-Shortages-Prepper-Central
Within a few more decades, dire food shortages may lead to global-scale conflict, warned a top plant scientist in the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). There may not be enough land, water and energy to sustain the potential 9 billion people who are projected to share the Earth by 2050. “Food issues could become as politically destabilizing by 2050 as energy issues are today,” said Fred Davies, senior science adviser for tUSAID’s bureau of food security, in a press release. Biotechnology, improved breeding and advances...

Is Your Home Really Secure? *Video*

Burglar-Prepper-Central
If you are like me, you go through a lockdown routine every evening by making sure all doors and windows are locked. All exterior lighting is on and there is nothing out of place outside. This almost seems ritualistic. If you don’t do something like this, I believe the video below might help you change your mind. When I mention security, I am not only talking about during a time of emergency, I am referencing everyday life. Some folks live in nice neighborhoods and feel, “nothing like that will ever happen here”, this is a false...

Would You Help?

The Bullying Experiment Prepper Central
We found this video of college students conducting an experiment in regards to bullying called “The Bullying Experiment”. While this is a problem that plagues our school systems today, this behavior is also exhibited by adults as well. Could we see this behavior after or during a disaster or catastrophe? Absolutely! This behavior is unacceptable. People preying on others is no different than animals in the wild. While the team here does not tolerate bullying and will stand up to it, I hope you will join us and educate others on how to...

U.S. Nuclear Power Plants: What Distance Is Safe?

Nuclear Power Plants Prepper Central
Given the the nuclear reactor meltdown disaster in Fukushima Japan, and the local area Fallout contamination that is now entering the food chain and water systems there, I have constructed a location map of the current (and decommissioned) nuclear power reactors in the United States. Without discussing For or Against nuclear power, it may be smarter and a better use of time to learn some lessons from what happened in Japan that led to the the Fukushima meltdown, and to consider the potential risk for those living in the U.S. near one of these reactors...
