A natural or man-made disaster could strike at any time, preparing ahead of time will help you and your loved ones survive. The local, state, and federal governments will be overwhelmed initially, and for a significant amount of time afterward. People will likely have to rely on their own devices for an extended period.
Our electrical grid is very vulnerable. Electricity may be disrupted, everything will come to a grinding halt. It could be out for an extended period, weeks if not months. Orders won’t be placed, deliveries won’t be made. Gas station pumps won’t work, and ATMs won’t dispense cash. The ease and convenience we now have in our daily life will abruptly end. People need to think of what life was like in the 1800s and plan accordingly.
