Personal Prepper is about preparing your family for disaster. Disaster preparedness is essential to disaster survival. Without preparation, survival is much less likely. This personal prepper video introduces me and my book personal prepper which contains economical and practical information on disaster preparedness, survival, disaster recovery, disaster preparedness kits, disaster preparedness food and where to get it, the firearms and ammunition you will need to protect your family, when and how to make the decision to bug-in or bug-out. It includes the common factors of all disasters such as extended electricity and communication failures, extreme shortages of food and water, and the loss of clothing and shelter. In disasters the police will probably not be available to protect you. You will need to know what kind of weapons you need to protect yourself and the amount of ammunition you will need for those weapons. I’ve spent six years as a military officer, five years as a department of defense civilian, and ten years as an information technology advisor to a regional organized crime task force.In the military I was responsible for local and regional war plans as well as disaster preparedness and recovery planning. I was also responsible to leading survival, recovery and reconstitution operations for my organization. That disaster preparation experience is what I have put into this book for you. Imagine losing electricity to your region for ten days or more. This means no refrigeration or lights. Maybe limited radio and no TV. No cell phone service after your phone runs out of batteries and the cell tower generators run out of gasoline. The gas stations won’t be operating because they can’t pump gas out of the ground without electricity. You may not have running water because there won’t be electricity to continue to pump water into the water towers which will eventually run dry. Grocery stores will be closed because they don’t have electricity or because highways may be damaged or blocked. Perishable food will start going bad and people will be getting concerned. If the outage is over a large region then you may be on your own for a while. What kind of condition will you and your family be in after ten or twenty days? What kind of condition will your region be in? Regardless of the type of disaster there are common preparations you can make to feed, clothe, shelter, and physically and emotionally protect your family while others around you are suffering or dying. There are many different types of disasters but the after effects are roughly the same and they often last longer than the disaster. There is the potential loss of homes and clothing, shortages of food, exposure to the elements, the possibility of disease, or a variety of injuries among a myriad of other things. If the event covers a large region and the devastation is extensive, then first responders may be greatly delayed reaching the scene. Some parts of the world are prone to earthquakes and there are many large cities on major earthquake faults that have been long quiet. Seismologists like to talk about probabilities of a certain size earthquake over various periods of time into the future. A tsunami or a large hurricane will someday absolutely destroy a large coastal city. Again, the local or regional infrastructure will collapse and there will be limited to no emergency services. War can break out with the unimaginable damage that modern weapons can create. Just look at some of the pictures of utter devastation of some German and Japanese cities in World War Two. This will happen again. This book is about how not to be a victim, or much less of a victim. How do you make sure that the things you have gathered that allow you to survive remain available to you. You may have kept yourself and your family safe. However, you must also make sure your survival items remain available to you after a disaster strikes. Gas stations need electricity to pump gas out of the ground. Those stations without electricity will have to close. Long lines will form at stations that remain open. Some people will try to buck the lines and fist fights will ensue. Some guns will be drawn threateningly. Electricity in a major disaster will fail for an extended period. Food will that and be ruined. People will starve. You will starve unless you have the type of disaster supplies recommended in my book.
