Rally Your Family In An Emergency: Survive An “Instant Disaster”

Rally Your Family In An Emergency: Survive An "Instant Disaster"
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

One of our biggest concerns as preppers is, what if an event happens and I’m not near my family?

Because that’s most likely what’s going to happen.

You're going to be at work (once this pandemic is over).

Your spouse is going to be out, either at work, running errands, or whatever (once people do that again).

The kids are going to be at school (once schools open up again).

If an emergency happens, how do we rally our families when the grid is down, when the cell phones aren't working, and your loved ones are separated from you and from your survival location?

I talked to survival expert Jonathan Hollerman about this issue, and here is a summary of the advice he gave me.

How To Rally Your Family Together In An “Instant Disaster”!

You'd be surprised to learn just how many people are prepared.

They have food stores, they have water, they have purifiers.

But they never focus on different scenarios, especially if they're separated from those supplies.

Communication is the key!

You've got to plan it out ahead of time.

Here are three tips for rallying your family in an emergency:

1. Have A Written Plan Of Action For Multiple Scenarios

The first thing you have to do is make a plan and WRITE IT DOWN.

Writing down the plan makes it possible to refine it and to teach it to all the members of your family.

Don't just pay lip-service to it.

For every likely issue you might encounter, have a written plan.

Consider what could come up and plan out your family's response to it.

Do NOT have a family conference about it, however.

The heads of the household should draw up the plan and and share it with the dependents.

This isn't a vote.

It's a plan that you impart to your dependents.

2. Know Your Kids' Plans

Because you can't predict when an emergency will occur, you have to be flexible.

If your family isn't together when an emergency takes place, you have to know where to find your loved ones and plan ahead for what they'll do.

This will allow you to react accordingly.

For example, what will your kids' school(s) do in an emergency?

How will you get your kids home, and where can you expect to find them?

Understand how those logistics will work and plan it out.

That way, you can work to get all your family members together in the same place based on the starting points they'll each have.

3. Have a Fallback Plan

You know that old saying, “no plan survives first contact with the enemy?”

Well, every plan can go wrong.

Most of them will, in fact.

You've got to plan ahead for when things go wrong, because in an emergency, anything that CAN go wrong probably will, and at the worst possible time (as Mr. Murphy likes to say).

Make sure you have a fallback plan if all else fails, or if the emergency scenario doesn't fit any of your other drawn-up plans.

As part of this, you must have a specific rally point.

That rally point allows you to know that, no matter what else, there is one specific place to find your family members in an emergency.

But your family can't get to the rally point if they don't know what it is, and they aren't certain they're supposed to go.

As in all things, plan out your family's survival BEFORE an emergency strikes!

3 Critical Steps To Take NOW To Survive A Grid-Down Blackout Collapse!

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

You take it for granted every day, and you depend on it for EVERYTHING.

It is ELECTRICITY, and with our fragile electrical grid essentially held together with duct tape and hope, it’s only a matter of time before we experience another widespread blackout like the Northeast United States did just a few years back.

What’s worse, terrorists have figured out that our grid is a point of vulnerability — and we’ve already seen what may be the first tentative steps to target our electrical grid for destruction.

When a grid-down blackout strikes there will be many factors you’re going to need to plan for in order to avoid being one of those 281 million Americans who won’t survive…

…but there are three you had better get on RIGHT NOW (and yes, I know we're all in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic… but this is very serious food for thought).

Here is a summary of advice given to me by survival expert Jonathan Hollerman when we talked recently…

The Three Most Critical Steps YOU Should ALREADY Have Taken To Prepare For A Grid-Down Blackout Collapse!

Jonathan Hollerman

A long-term loss of the electric grid will be infinitely harder to survive than a massive financial collapse, for instance.

Outside of the financial collapse, it’s also the MOST LIKELY thing to happen in our future.

In the best-case scenario we’re looking at a minimum of SIX MONTHS without power, more likely a year or two, and at that point our country will probably have lost 80 to 90 percent of its population.

There’s no plan of action that the military or DHS can put into effect to feed 300 million Americans without the electric grid, and people need to understand that.

That means you’ve got LOTS of prepping and stockpiling to do… but it also means there are…

3 Critical Grid-Down Blackout Survival Planning Tips You Should Already Be Doing…

Okay, let's take them by the numbers.

There are more things you should be doing to survive for a grid-down blackout collapse, but these are three of those most critical ones.

First of all…

1. Don’t Tell ANYONE That You’re A Prepper.

It's natural to want to talk about prepping.

After all, we naturally want to discuss what interests us… and we may feel we owe it to our friends and neighbors to explain to them the need to prepare.

The problem is that if people know you are prepared, they know you have supplies…

…And that means your doorstep is the first one they're going to show up on if things go crazy and they need to survive.

Don't expect your friends to stay your friends during social chaos.

They'll ask… and beg… and finally, they may resort to violence to take what they want.

Make your prepping a closely guarded secret.

That way, none of your neighbors will come looking to kick in your door when they are starving and desperate.

2. Store Enough Food And Water For 1 YEAR.

If you can't eat and drink, no amount of gear in the world will help you survive a crisis.

Only having adequate stores of food and water will see you through the worst of it.

Our government recommends preparing for a few days to perhaps a week.

In a long-term survival situation, that's going to leave you thirsty, starving, and desperate.

You have GOT to be preparing for more than just a few days.

A grid-down crisis could go on for MONTHS.

Keep that timeline in mind and make storing food a constant, revolving process.

3. Make Sure You Have Protection, And I Don’t Mean Just Physical Shelter.

You’ve got to have weapons and supplies for fighting off the human predators that your neighbors will become when they are starving and looking to stay alive.

You may think it can't happen to the people you know.

You may think the folks who know you're a prepper would NEVER turn on you.

The harsh truth is that they can and they WILL.

When people are desperate to live, they'll do almost anything to ANYONE.

That includes you.

Your survival stores must therefore include the weapons, ammo, and other gear you can use to fight off hostiles who want to take what you have.

Don't put off your prepping.

Don't tell yourself it can't happen to you.

See to these three things NOW, before the next crisis hits.

You need all the time you can get to be ready.

Grid Down Blackout Survival Tips

Grid Down Blackout Survival Tips

It's a threat so powerful that government experts – including NASA, the CIA, and the Pentagon – have warned that it could wipe out as many as 281 million Americans in the first year alone.

Yet, not surprisingly, very few people are doing ANYTHING to get ready and are relatively clueless of the danger we face in our future.

I'm talking about a wide-scale grid-down blackout that could plunge our country back into the Dark Ages in an instant.

It could come from a natural disaster… EMP… solar flare… or even a terrorist attack on our outdated electrical grid system.

Whatever is the cause, you can be sure of one thing…

… the “unprepared” mass of our citizens will turn on one another… and YOU!

In this “no b.s.” look at life with the lights out, survival expert and best-selling author, Jonathan Hollerman, reveals your best strategies for dealing with your #1 threat in a grid-down scenario: people!
