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

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.

FEMA Camps: 5 Scary Facts You Must Know To Survive A Disaster

FEMA Camp Facts

Never underestimate the government’s ability to screw things up, right?

I mean, we already know FEMA botched Hurricane Katrina.

But what you may not know is why

What made them so incompetent in that situation – and do you have any reason to think they’ll be any better at handling a disaster that strikes near you?

Here are 5 things you absolutely NEED to know about what FEMA does in disasters – and, more importantly, what it doesn’t do…

5 Scary Facts You MUST Know About FEMA Camps!

FEMA Camp Facts

1. FEMA’s Funds Aren’t Just For “Disasters” Anymore

FEMA used to be strictly for natural disaster relief and management – but like so much else, that all changed on September 11th.

FEMA now focuses primarily on terrorism, alongside Homeland Security.

Why? No one knows.

No one can explain why funds that should have been available for people in real danger during Hurricane Katrina were diverted to “fighting” terrorism.

FEMA has less money than ever before, because the government is covering how much it’s spending on Homeland Security by taking money from an agency that has nothing to do with terrorism.

Which means that agency doesn’t have the money to do its actual job.

2. FEMA Cuts Corners and Causes More Harm Than It Relieves

During Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, FEMA put up trailers for people who had been displaced from their homes.

Sounds like a good thing, right?

That’s what you want your natural disaster relief organization to do.

Except the trailers had exceptionally high formaldehyde levels.

The Sierra Club warned FEMA about the problem, but they were ignored and FEMA continued to place displaced citizens in the trailers – which inflicted those people, who had already lost everything, with breathing trouble, constant headaches, and nosebleeds.

3. FEMA Won’t Help You Get Out of Harm’s Way

You probably heard on the news that a lot of people didn’t want to leave New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, even after they were told to evacuate.

That might have seemed downright stupid to you – why wouldn’t you get out if your life was in danger?

The answer?

A lot of them COULDN’T get out.

FEMA didn’t provide transportation or funds for those who didn’t have their own vehicles to evacuate in.

The vast majority of people stayed not because of stubbornness or stupidity, but because FEMA gave them no way out.

4. FEMA Doesn’t Have the People It Needs Ready to Go

Ever been on a volunteer fire department or rescue team?

You get trained and you show up regularly to stay trained, so that whenever your services are needed, you know exactly what to do and how to help.

It’s how the National Guard works.

It’s how a lot of very effective forces that aren’t needed all the time work.

But it’s not how FEMA works.

FEMA doesn’t have people on standby.

They have to orchestrate a massive number of services, from search and rescue to waste disposal to food distribution to transport – and more – and the people they’re working with HAVE NOT BEEN TRAINED BEFOREHAND.

They’re mostly cobbled together from local agencies, each of which knows how to do one small piece of the required disaster relief plan – and none of which know how to do it in concert with a large number of other organizations.

Any way you look at it, it’s a logistics nightmare waiting to happen.

5. Even FEMA’s Survival Kit Advice Is DEADLY

If you go to FEMA’s website, they’ll tell you what you should have in your survival kit in case of disaster.

It’s ridiculously inadequate.

It will not help you survive a real disaster and in fact, it may even get you killed by giving you a sense of false confidence.

For example, they don’t even mention having a means of evacuating your family or your supplies.

The items they do tell you to have are sufficient for a disaster that lasts a day or two at most – not a full-scale catastrophe like Katrina.

Look, I can’t solve all the problems with FEMA.

But I CAN solve the problem of making sure you have your family’s survival kit ready to go when they need you most.

Every survivalist needs to know what to pack – and surprise… not a one of them is on FEMA’s worthless list of things to get.

Especially in today’s trying times, you need this information now more than ever.
