If your family had to rely on your survival and combat skills during an emergency, when the wolves are at your door, both the four-legged, and the two-legged kind – would you know what to do?
You only have to look at recent headlines to understand the need to consider this your WAKE UP CALL, your alarm clock to open your eyes to the reality that we are living on a fragile planet that is showing signs of reaching a tipping point that cannot and should not be ignored.
Now, that doesn’t mean you have to be Special Ops, or have access to unlimited resources, to make a difference during a crisis. A little confidence, creativity, and the right knowledge can increase your odds in any disaster or emergency situation! I can tell you, no amount of training can possibly prepare you for every scenario you will encounter in theater.
It is not designed to. What it does do is put you in a mindset that gives you power over panic. A generation ago, being prepared was more than just the motto of the Boy Scouts; it was a way of life. Your grandparents knew it just made sense to prepare for the unexpected. Today, your friends and family may look at you like you’re nuts when you talk about the need for emergency supplies and a disaster plan. In the following article I want to discuss about the steps you can take to keep your family safe or to provide some extra protection to your loved ones if things go south.
