The Fairbanks North Star Borough food warehouse contains food for 35,000 people for 30 days, the total population of the borough (including Fairbanks, the second largest city in Alaska) is 100,000 people. This stockpile feeds 35% of the population in a emergency at 3 meals a day. Is it a long term plan, no, but it is a start toward being prepared for regional disasters. There was talk of expanding it but the reality is that most here still have a homesteading mentality and keep large stores of food around because of our already spotty supply lines. The original point is that if someplace as remote and economically diverse as Alaska can create food stockpiles, why can't other states.

When we dropped those two bombs on Japan, the only survivors were those that had been trained to do like we were trained to do, under the desk and cover your head types. Stay away from windows and don't look at the bright light are two other measures to take. We or I haven't seen any other type of study that would be current on what to do. I guess after the cold war, didn't really seem like a war. But anyhow: this type of studies just dropped off the radar.

We and the world have greater and more devastating Nuclear bombs now, that will do much more damage. But I'm really not worried about that as much as some Idiot popping off a EMP. That would do more damage and cause more disruption of a way of life here. I do think that we can't keep going as we are with out something happening. What I don't know, is; what they are up to? there are too many things going on in the background behind our backs that we don't know about or can control. So we can only prepare for what may happen. And what is most likely to happen in our own location or area. We can't make ready for every event, but only the most likely. :nervous:

After reading about the different states that are readying for a possible Nuclear attack, My question is, why aren't more doing it? If a threat exist, why not get the citizens involved and prepared? Not just for the Politicians. They are spending our tax dollars to protect themselves and their families only. No educational programs, no instructional venues for our schools, no guidance for the millions of workers that are away from home during the day working. Nothing about what to do, where to go or how to survive.

What kind of message is this sending? Do you really think our government can protect us from an attack? :eek: Sound Off.



because its not the responsibility of the gov to prepare you or anyone else for anything. they like the people calm and controlling so sit back down on your couch and watch your tv... nothing to see here...

however, depending on the town you live, do prepare. Yuma, az for example, once a year the marines do a mass casualty exercise with the local emergency services... you can see youtube videos on what they do. theyre usually named jade helm in Arizona or some such nonsense...

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Each county, or parish or whatever your community calls them, should have a disaster specialist office. We have our county's emergency preparation plans down loaded for future use. Impressive words with really zero meaning.

The police , and your county commissioners,,and city council are your leaders.. Frankly I'm amused, these people don't have a clue. In many applications the document defers to State and Federal direction.

Several years back, I started a physical search for any underground shelters in our urban growth area. A couple of the elementary schools, the old bank building,,and the college have underground space, which could be used for emergency. All,those locations are in the city, no idea if they have supplies in place, I doubt it.

My area is a volcanic area, just south of us, by twenty miles is the Lava Beds national monument, literally thousands of caves. I use to work down their, and have suspected that some group, has long ago,set up,shop in the more secluded caves.

I've seen some odd things, over the years that just don't add up. Could be wrong, but knowing the area, it's not a far fetched notion. I've personally walked miles in some of these caves, their 18 ft tall, with Sandy bottoms.

Back to shelters. Those noted above are in my opinion nothing short of a trap. Perhaps another option is, I'm aware of, and have walked thru crude caves under Main Street, these cave connect business, for whatever reason.

That they exist, how many are aware of these caves, I don't know.

While I am a Trump supporter, I recognize all his election bought, We The People, is more time.

We've actually doubled our MTN house purchases monthly, a third high end water filter, the basics.

Our best defense, is our isolation. The down side is we have an f-15 base, however logic dictates that ththe we aircraft will bingo, to any hot spot. I don't see them sitting here static.

We are fortunate we head south, we have all we need, in terms of places to go.

Swamp us d to live down their, the place has thousands of cattle deer elk antelope, lots of water, and a very low population. Swamp, if you see this, I'm talking about county road 1 Modoc county, east and north, into the paisley area.

Please reconsider the idea of heading to a shelter, once you enter, " they" own you.

Happy Thanksgiving .

Well said Dirk; and I agree, we need to be mindful of what our so called leaders, not leaders but representatives, that are suppose to represent me not lead me. I can do that myself. They are suppose to be working for mine and you well being and not just their own.

But again; well said.

Candid , here here!. I'm on a few web sites, that are pretty far right wing, consider my self, my position to be moderate. Some of the outright hate coming out of others on those sites, literally scares me.

While I support freedom of thought speech, those folks paint an ugly picture. I still belive their is far more good going on in our country, then not. ,

Forgot to mention, if/when it goes down, it's going to require "all hands" to put it back together. What we can not allow is DC inc, to be involved in our recovery. They are the problem, they can not be allowed to Pen the solution.
