WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR YOUR FAMILY AND ANIMALS?
by the NetPlaces Network Staff
It happens in an instant but in terrorist-times, a blackout can last beyond your survival timeline if you fail to prepare for more than a temporary power outage.
Today more than ever in our
history, America’s aging 3-part power grid is at risk. That puts you and your
family in “critical condition” unless you are prepared to survive with no
Our electrical grids (Eastern, Western, and Texas (ERCOT)) are
viable targets for our enemies and smaller feeder lines are aging. When there is a power failure, whether due to
violent weather, age or sabotage, you need to be prepared.
families who depend on electricity to run heart monitors, breathing equipment,
etc. loss of electrical power for even a few hours could mean disaster Power loss also generates uncertainty
in every household which often leads to panic, a powerful weapon in both
psychological and boots-on-the-ground warfare.
We worry about a nuclear strike but enemies don’t
destroy that which they covet. Terrorism is a very real weapon in the
arsenal of war and our cultural enemies are masters of psychological warfare.
As U.S. and European countries are distracted by COVID-19, riots and protest
marches are turning increasingly violent! The disturbing fact is that some
“Americans” are not and never will be American. They may have been born here but
they think differently. We think in terms of years whereas older cultures plan
Col. Harper and Dr. James, military and political experts, agree that those who
would conquer us do not want an uninhabitable country. That pretty much takes
nuclear war off the table because it would prevent access to our vast natural
resources (gold, silver, iron, and coal) and the land mass our enemies covet.
Our greatest wealth is the invention of internet technology. That is also our
Achilles Heel and "evil-doers" know loss of power would bring America to its
knees. No power, no public internet. Entire regions plunged into darkness,
chaos, and uncountable casualties. All without firing a single shot.
There are hundreds of “survivalist” websites out there but you are here and you
are animal owners. Make sure you have water, weapons, and food (including grain
and or dry dog food) in safe, dry, hidden or at least, obscure storage.
Prioritize your survival items in that order…
In any crisis, water and weapons are the most precious items if you are to
protect your family and resources. Whether it is a natural disaster or manmade,
the first thing people will seek is money but if the crisis
continues, even your neighbors will come for your water and food and they may be
Therefore, do NOT tell anyone what you’re doing. Don’t brag about being a
“prepper” and make sure no family member ever mentions that you “store stuff” or
“keep a lot of food.”
If you have livestock you’ll have feed on hand but realistically, you need to
think of your animals as edibles. In a disaster situation which could last
longer than your food stash, protect them as such… Don’t say you couldn’t eat
your dog. If your children are starving…
Do you have a water supply that does not require power? Think ahead. Are you on
city or well water? Animals need a lot of water; big dogs require up to a half
gallon per day, livestock at least twice that much. You can survive 2 to 3 weeks
without food. You are unlikely to survive 10 days without water.
Here’s a list of simple, basic but CRITICAL supplies you use in normal life so
make sure you keep “backups” on hand and equipment in working order -
Generator and cell phone are second only to food and water. Without a
generator, you can’t use a breathing machine or run the refrigerator or charge
the batteries you bought… flashlights and other tools are helpful but cell
phones are the most important tool in contacting emergency help.
As with food and water, batteries can go bad if not stored properly. Alkaline
and primary lithium batteries can be stored for up to 10 years in moderate
temperatures. Just make sure to check and recharge or replace any battery that
seems weak, including that extra car battery you keep rotated and charged up…
Do not count on emergency services. If there is a widespread power outage for
more than 36 hours your survival risk begins to double. With no communication,
unless you have a CB radio and the power to run it, you are at risk, not so much
from the weather as from people…
According to subscriber Hal Gantt, "To survive in a nation of sheep ruled by wolves
and owned by pigs, you must become a lion!"
