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!
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.
