Solar flares are an umbrella term used in the prepper community to cover CME’s (coronal mass ejections), and solar storms. Solar flares in themselves aren’t actually that bad, even the strongest one’s ever recorded haven’t caused much damage. A CME is the thing to be worried about though, it’s basically (without getting technical) a cloud of super charged plasma that got shot out of a solar flare and was thrown out into space. A solar flare can be observed right away but a coronal mass ejection can take up to 2 days to reach earth (so we’ll have warning of it before it hits).
The first rule in any of these commonly occurring situations described is to remain calm, reassure the victim and try to keep them quiet and under control. Then examine the victim as quickly as possible, looking for the cause of the distress. Follow the rules of first aid and begin by examining the victim’s breathing and air passage but remember, the reason you need to be quick is that death might come from a bleeding artery sooner than from a blocked air passage, and you need to be open to all possibilities.

It often happens that preppers overlook antibiotics as a part of their preps, but these wonder meds can actually turn out to be life savers. Effective and easy to use, survival antibiotics will certainly come in handy post collapse and when you’re having to deal with an infection. To be completely honest with you, I had been blissfully unaware of the many types of antibiotics that existed until not too long ago when I developed an infectious colitis in my colon. I didn’t know about the condition until I was in excruciating pain and I went to see my doctor. This infection was triggered by a bacterial infection, and one of the causes may have been through the consumption of uncooked meat.
The threat of terrorist explosive devices are now a normal part of everyday life in America unfortunately, but by planning ahead and creating an emergency urban survival plan for just such a possibility, you could save valuable seconds in reaction time that could mean the difference between life and death.

After watching Alex Jones’ interview of Joel Skousen, I decided to pick up a copy of Joel’s book, Strategic Relocation because when things get worse globally, I want my family to live in a safe location. Initially I thought it would be wise to find a place to live OUTSIDE of America, because of the many very bad problems in America (NDAA, TSA, the unconstitutionality of the Patriot Act, fighting perpetual foreign wars, the ruination of our country via deficit spending). But in the first 55 pages of his book, Joel shows various problems in living in other countries. He then shows that living in America (but living a safe distance from American cities that are likely to get bombed) is actually SAFER than living in other countries, especially in a world war scenario which looks more likely each year.
Stockpile, Hoard, Stash, Cache. No matter what you choose to call it, storing an ample food supply is an essential part of any survival plan. No surprise there right? When disaster strikes, grocery stores are stripped down to nothing but rows and rows of empty shelves in a matter of hours. So yeah. No surprises there. But what will surprise you is just how dangerous it is to depend on even the best stockpile… hoard… stash… or cache…
Because no matter what you call it, if that is the end all answer to your food supply, you are putting your family at risk for starvation. Let me fill you in on exactly why this is, and exactly what you can do about it:
When SHTF, people will get desperate! Those caught unprepared will resort to violence, brutality, and theft. We believe in charity but a line needs to be drawn when your own families survival comes at stake. To protect your family/friends from the violent hoards you’ll need to have a plan and the skills to defend your home from intruders. The gear listed below are pricey, but we feel you should never cheap out on gear when it comes to urban survival because the quality of your gear could mean the difference between life and death. Keep in mind that this kit is a work in progress and we would greatly appreciate any input you could give us. If you want to contribute to this site and the prepping community at large, offer your feedback below. Thanks!
If you live in an area of the country that is known to have Wildfires (such as many parts of California), an emergency survival kit and plan will be necessary. The United States is one of those rare countries that has an abundance of trees, foliage and green landscapes where the possibility for Wildfires is always present. Even if you live in the Sunshine State of Florida, Wildfires have been known to break out at a moment’s notice. Having an emergency survival kit and plan handy is definitely a good idea.
