German government urges citizens to start stockpiling supplies in preparation for grid down scenario or even nuclear war

In preparation for an impending crisis worse than the one already sweeping the world, German Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser is advising citizens to start stockpiling emergency food and other survival supplies.

“Think, for example, of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure,” Faeser told Handelsblatt, a German business daily news outlet.

“If the power goes out for a longer period of time or daily life is restricted in some other way, then it definitely makes sense to have an emergency supply at home.”

Civil protection is also a “high priority,” Faeser added, explaining that “the turning point is clearly showing us that we have a considerable need for improvement when it comes to civil protection.”
