The resultant high-energy wave could damage the nation's electrical grid, telecommunications systems, food and water production plants, government satellites, as well as nearly every computer, cell phone, and television for hundreds of miles in every direction. An accident could result in dangerous levels of nuclear radiation exposure that could affect the health and safety of the public living near the nuclear power plant. And depending on the level of the accident, it can even affect people on the other side other earth. The severity of signs and symptoms of radiation sickness depends on how much radiation you've absorbed. How much you absorb depends on the strength of the radiated energy and the distance between you and the source of radiation. Signs and symptoms of radiation sickness usually appear when the entire body receives an absorbed dose of at least 1 Gy. The population closest to the nuclear power plant that is within the 10-mile emergency planning zone is at greatest risk of exposure to radiation and radioactive materials. Beyond 10 miles, the major risk of radioiodine exposure is from ingestion of contaminated foodstuffs, particularly milk products. If there is a threat of nuclear radiation exposure public health officials may advise you to shelter-in-place by remaining in your home, school, or place of work or they may require you to evacuate the area. Be prepared by having a disaster preparedness plan in place so you won't be caught without emergency food and water. You may also be told not to eat some foods and not to drink some beverages until a safe supply can be brought in from outside the affected area. Following the instructions given to you by these authorities can lower the amount of radioactive iodine that enters your body and lower the risk of serious injury to your thyroid gland.
Depending on the level of nuclear radiation exposure you and your family may be asked to take potassium iodide. Click here for FDA regulations for using Potassium Iodide as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies.
Children between 3 and 18 years of age should take 65 mg (one 65 mg tablet OR 1 mL of solution). Children who are adult size (greater than or equal to 150 pounds) should take the full adult dose, regardless of their age. While nuclear radiation exposure can produce radiation sickness that is serious and often fatal, it's rare.
Before high-tech tsunami information was available, people who lived along the gulf coast and in Caribbean nations had no way of knowing that one had occurred until it arrived on their shores.
The most recent example of a tsunami in the Gulf of Mexico happened in 1946, when a magnitude 8.1 earthquake ripped through the Dominican Republic and ultimately killed more than 1,800 people.
For people living on the gulf coast, the possibility of a tsunami is understandably frightening. During the BP oil spill, for example, there was a rumor that a massive methane gas bubble could burst and cause a killer tsunami. By understanding the basics of how tsunamis develop, you'll quickly see that the likelihood of a major Gulf of Mexico disaster is very low.
They are typically caused by earthquakes, and earthquakes happen when tectonic plates shift. A comprehensive assessment of tsunami potential in the Gulf of Mexico was produced by the U.S Geologic Service in 2009 (see link below). If a tsunami happened in this part of the world, a Gulf of Mexico tsunami warning would be issued. Turn on your radio to learn if there is a warning if an earthquake occurs and you are in a coastal area.
The amazing technology employed in creating Stealth body armor is evident in the final product weight. There are many configurations of Stealth armor to choose from, allowing the intended wearer to customize his or her vest based on the balance of available budget versus desired level of protection. Upon viewing multiple online video demonstrations of the Ballistic Threat Level II vest absorbing 9mm handgun rounds, it became quite obvious it works as intended. The Stealth vest is designed to be worn concealed, and as such, is designed to cover and protect only vital organs high in the torso, leaving the lower portion exposed. Stealth body armor is available in either a Black or White outer carrier, and comes in 7 sizes, allowing for a correct fit for virtually any frame size. Stealth body armor is shipped in a black, heavy-weight, nylon zippered carry bag which includes convenient handles.

If a source of water is used that may contain significant bacteriological or viral contamination, the manufacturer recommends that two drops of plain chlorinated bleach or iodine be added before filtering. The Sport Berkey provides from 160 up to 640 refills, depending on the level of contaminants in the water source. I find that Rob is very wordy when he instructs, and there’s not a single adjective that frightens him, so be prepared to listen as well as watch. I enjoyed watching and learning from the DVD, and give the Shooting In Realistic Environments DVD 5 out of a possible 5 stars.

If you shoot firearms for recreation, sport, or by profession, you NEED to use hearing protection. From the Manufacturer: “The Combat Arms are the ultimate shooters earplugs providing two way protection. The Putting Down Roots in Earthquake Country handbook is a new detailed resource that provides information about the threat posed by earthquakes in Utah, particularly along the Wasatch Front, and explains how you can prepare for, survive, and recover from these inevitable events. So, for February and March the Stake has asked us to put together a list of resources and skills from the people in our neighborhood so they know what people would be willing to share with the community and neighborhood in the event of an emergency. Click on the image below to view the resource list and be thinking of the skills and things you’d be willing to share with the neighborhood. Download & just Print the files, then fill them out by hand, glue pictures and make copies.
Here’s the file for the contents of the 72 hour Kits which were purchased through the church.
Choose an out-of-state friend or relative whom family members can call after the quake to report your condition.
Set up a Personal Support network – Designate someone to check on you in an emergency and to help with evacuation or sheltering-in-place. Personal Care Assistance – If you receive assistance from a home healthcare agency or in-home support provider, find out how the provider will respond in an emergency.

For Persons using a wheelchair: Plan for how you will evacuate in an emergency and discuss it with your care providers.
For Persons who are Blind or Visually Impaired: Keep an extra collapsible cane by your bed.
For Persons who are Hearing Impaired: Keep extra batteries for your hearing aids with emergency supplies. To help get everyone on the same page, as well as illustrate the point of how merciless our world can be, let’s start by defining the word “disaster.” One succinct yet informative definition is given below.
The key words here are calamitous event, suddenly, great loss of life, damage, and hardship. This website contains useful information, including a discussion of our basic needs that must be met in any disaster, a listing of the cornerstones to creating an effective preparedness plan, a checklist for an emergency auto kit, and a listing of relevant websites. I’ve been homeless and lived in a tent for several months (Personal SHTF event and a learning experience). I’ve been interviewed and consulted as a content expert for American Survival Guide Magazine. I’ve also been referenced in hundreds of online blogs, forums and websites and in several books by other authors.
There are at least one hundred and one blogs out there about prepping, survival and emergency preparedness. Those who only think about survival yet never get off the couch to do anything to prepare or learn needed skills. Those who think the term ”survivalist” is in any way connected to being a racist, extremist or other radical. Those who advocate violence of any kind against anyone unless it is to save your life or that of another. If any of the above describes you, then please move on because this website is not for you. Although this may seem attractive on some level, it is not possible for the average Joe (or the average Jane). It is my firm belief and conviction, backed with life experience that you can be practical, live efficiently and well within your means and still take positive, incremental steps towards preparedness success – all with minimal finances. Please help support this site by going through the above link every time that you shop at Amazon. Over the years he has studied all facets of survivalism, and has learned works and, more importantly, what does not work. Arthur Bradley, a NASA engineer and the author of Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms, an EMP is a broadband electromagnetic wave of energy resulting from a nuclear detonation in the atmosphere. The government's EMP Commission estimates that a nuclear-generated EMP over the eastern seaboard would cause a trillion dollars in damage. The widespread consensus is that our government has already taken steps to harden many critical military systems, details of which are understandably classified.

Doses greater than 6 Gy to the whole body are generally not treatable and usually lead to death within two days to two weeks, depending on the dose and duration of the exposure. If taken properly it will help reduce the dose of radiation to the thyroid gland from radioactive iodines, and reduce the risk of thyroid cancer.
However, a tsunami can technically happen in any large body of water that experiences a major earthquake or another cataclysmic event.
If a large enough one develops, a United States tsunami could affect the Gulf Coast of the country. Unfortunately, there are alarmists out there who take advantage of people's fears to make them even more afraid. A fault line, which is the border between two tectonic plates, runs between Central American and the Lesser Antilles.
Stealth is the sleek design in their line of body armor products specifically intended to be worn concealed, under a shirt or jacket. It is a much lighter when compared to any of the vintage military-style flak jackets, yet boasts truly amazing specifications with regard to stopping live rounds from penetrating the panels.
After what I’ve seen, there’s no mistaking its ability to protect the wearer from traumatic gunshot wounds.
This is a trade-off to a vertically taller design which would shift upward and bulge awkwardly when the wearer tries sitting or squatting. Even though it is manufactured in such a wide range of sizes and is highly adjustable via the wide Velcro bands, the fit is not ideal for women with a high bust-to-waist ratio.
Each threat is carefully studied with analyses of its likelihood and potential impacts on our nation’s critical infrastructures.
Stopping just short of being a great story, Survivors is technology heavy in presentation, so much so that the average reader may have difficulty comprehending the scope of firearms management.
The difference being the Generic Sport is shipped with no text printed on the bottle, though custom text printing is available.
A number of questions I’ve personally wrestled with regarding the use of my handgun in real life scenarios were answered in a very direct way when I watched the DVD. He walks the students featured in this video through helpful indoor shooting drills, as well as 360 degree defensive handgun training. I highly recommend it to anyone who owns a handgun and is not professionally trained in defensive handgun tactics. It also features a single, adjustable temperature control knob for simplicity, and a solid disc heating element for easy clean up. Frequent exposure to the high-decibel sounds produced by small arms fire will inevitably damage your hearing. The olive end is designed to provide constant passive noise reduction best used in an indoor shooting range.
The yellow end offers noise-activated (momentary) protection up to NRR 22dB for outdoor range use, while the olive end provides conventional (constant) NRR 22dB for indoor use.
Between target practice, and mowing the 3.8 acres of countryside we call our yard (which takes me a whopping 4 hours), I spend a lot of time wearing these especially in the summer months, and I can say they are reasonably comfortable and they do work very well. This conference will be held Friday, March 27, 2009, and will combine aspects from both of these conferences.
Your block captains will be going around and compiling the list while they also deliver the Neighborhood Emergency Plans. You must use the information which is freely provided in assessing the needs of your family.
We have tried to make it easy for everyone and self explanatory, but we understand it’s a lot of information to take in. You’ll need a copy of this with your kits to make sure you know what you have and what you still need to get. Consider storing your hearing aids in a container attached to your nightstand or bedpost, so you can locate them quickly after a disaster. None of which sound appealing, but particularly distressing when put together in a single sentence!

More importantly, you don’t need a six-figure income to help your family become better prepared.

It costs you nothing extra when you order and we get a small commission that helps to support this site. His calling is to show ordinary people how to become better prepared for an uncertain future.
Certainly in a conventional or nuclear war, the United States would soundly defeat such an enemy.
An attack of that magnitude would cripple the United States financially and introduce widespread hardship for tens of millions of people. The electrical grid and telecommunication systems, however, remain extremely susceptible to an EMP.

It is routinely added to table salt to make it "iodized." Potassium iodide, if taken within the appropriate time and at the appropriate dosage, blocks the thyroid gland's uptake of radioactive iodine and thus reduces the risk of thyroid cancers and other diseases that might otherwise be caused by thyroid uptake of radioactive iodine that could be dispersed in a severe reactor accident.
Practical preparations are outlined, including steps to meet the fourteen basic needs in the absence of modern utilities, and the use of Faraday cages and uninterruptible power supplies to protect personal electronics.
The main players of the story happen to be aware enough of the world around them to be at least in some type of preparedness mode.
Lars Laine, disabled veteran, resides in Four Corners with his wife and future sister-in-law.   Ian Doyle, Air Force Pilot and his wife Blanca lose their daughter in a distant relative’s neighborhood riot. There is no indication of segue to a continuation of the story at a later date, nor is there a sense of finality. Unfortunately, this three hundred and seventy page novel complete with glossary of terms and ham radio shorthand often reads like a technical manual seasoned with a thin veneer of fiction for flavor.
The disinfectant added will then be filtered from the water, thus removing its odor, color and taste. Everything presented is set-up to resemble what one would likely experience in defending against attackers inside the home, or in common urban settings. The Goal Zero utilizes the latest in flexible solar panel technology, monocrystalline solar panel technology, which provides the most power per square inch.
It does not matter how tough you think you are, if you press your luck too many times, you will pay a penalty in terms of hearing damage.

Exercise caution when moving around after an earthquake; items may fall and block paths that are normally unobstructed. Neither does it attempt to scare you, since I firmly believe that preparing should be motivated out of love rather than fear.
When described in this way, it becomes clear why we are interested in mitigating the hardship caused by such a crisis. The world spins like a top, the skies are clear, and your refrigerator is full of milk and cheese.

Please keep in mind, that because we do provide you with free PDF downloads of all of the files we create, we do not send out original files.
To conform to FCC rules assume that all links are affiliate links or paid advertising, most aren't but for legal purposes just assume that they are. The shielding effectiveness of homemade Faraday cages is measured and compared, including metal garbage cans, foil-wrapped boxes, fire safes, static bags, ammo cans, and microwave ovens. Bradley conducts seminars around the world, teaching families how to establish effective disaster preparedness plans. The most disturbing part of the storyline comes with Andrew Laine, brother of Lars Laine, who has to make his way home to the United States from his deployment in Afghanistan. What the characters lack is any real sense of grief, fear, loneliness or loss of equilibrium due to world gone topsy turvy. One is able to gain a greater concept of what becomes valuable in a world ruled a bartering type of operating system.
The Nomad even has a built in USB charging port, to quickly charge up all of your USB devices (Iphones,Ipods, Smartphones.) It even has a bult in pocket for your devices and chargers.
Now, the hearing protection choice of law enforcement, the military, and shooters all over the world can be your choice too.
The information presented here is directly from my book, the Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, 3rd Edition. Hospitals and emergency services would struggle to meet demand as they operated on backup generators.
This makes it difficult to transport oneself into the story, and see the ruination of America through the character’s eyes.
This concept is hammered home in the reference to “…ammo is practically worth its weight in silver.”While you can gain a great many how-tos from the story, set any preconceived ideas aside about gaining an emotional or personal view of a post apocalyptic world. It features super strong and flexible nylon hooks on all corners to ensure you can firmly secure it, where ever you need to.
Millions of automobiles would also be damaged, leaving roadways clogged with abandoned vehicles. This foldable solar panel even folds up and fits into the included foldable fabric carrying case to insure it doesn’t take up valuable space in your backpack. On your outdoor journeys, feel safe in the knowledge that you have portable power, where ever the trail leads you. We all live as part of a very complex ecosystem that, at its core, is unpredictable and willing to kill us without remorse or pause.
