Most people in the world are reactive in emergency situations – especially when it comes to SHTF disaster scenarios (Shit Hit The Fan) that result in TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It). In this situation, something big happened to your region of the country and you have no choice but to leave town.
The Special Forces and other organizations I’ve had the pleasure of working with are very good at executing effectively because the plan, then they drill it over and over and understand the military planning process. The other problem is that without an adequate COA analysis, you may not recognize WHEN you need to take action, and you definitely won’t know what other people on your team or in your family will be doing. First thing would be to pick up something that would be susceptible to an EMP but not tied into the power grid. Now, since you set things up previously, you pull out something electronic that you’ve stored in a Faraday cage. So at this point, you should have an idea as to whether the things in your home work or not. Next thing you need to know is how widespread the EMP is so you’ll have to communicate with someone not in your immediate area somehow. Also consider that an EMP would develop massive power along any power lines or phone lines, which would most likely cause fires in the affected area. What, or who, you check into next will depend on your own circumstances, but at this point, you should have an idea what happened. Most likely, you won’t have everyone at home when it hits, so the next thing to do is try to establish comms.
Hopefully, you’ve set up an emergency communications plan with your family and team, well in advance, and trained with it. In a real situation, you may not be able to establish comms with every member within the time you can safely stay at home.
In most cases, your primary rally point will be someone’s home but not in all cases, and for all you know, that home may not be there once you get there.
You should all have already planned your bug out routes to get to where you need to go, which makes it much easier. You may also find that for whatever reason, you have to move to a new location that wasn’t planned.
Essentially, you need to get to some rally point and wait for everyone to show up so you can figure out what to do next. Quickly set up defenses (such as set up a few people on the perimeter) and then work on improving those defenses later.
First thing to do once you have a hasty defense set up is to do your three inventories (read that article for more details).
This is also when you should start monitoring frequencies across the spectrum and gain some intel on the situation. If everyone knows the general area where you’ll be, such as a town or a particular forest area, you can agree on very obvious locations to leave messages, such as the top of a very large hill or a unique building, etc. Should you start the process of preparing to make a long journey to a possibly unaffected area?
About graywolfI am a former federal agent and military veteran who has deployed to combat theaters in Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan and have almost three decades of military and military contracting experience. My goal is to help preppers and others understand how to intelligently protect their family and their way of life against real threats, without all the end-of-the-world doomsday crap. If I wrapped my wind up weather radio inside a bag, insulated with aluminum foil, would this also act as a Faraday cage to protect it? I’m just getting into prepping , I would like to thank you for the info you give it has been very useful and easy to follow !
4) commo : two Yaesu hand held ham radios , one yeasu base station , 2 types of antennas ( father in law is expert ham guy ) . Astronomers are predicting that a massive solar storm, much bigger in potential than the one that caused spectacular light shows on Earth earlier this month, is to strike our planet in 2012 with a force of 100 million hydrogen bombs.
NASA said that a recent report by the National Academy of Sciences found that if a similar storm occurred today, it could cause "1 to 2 trillion dollars in damages to society's high-tech infrastructure and require four to 10 years for complete recovery".
Please enter some additional information and click register to become a member of Sharenator! Suppressors are great for shooters who have sensitive or damaged ears that would normally be too vulnerable to loud gunshots.
The 1934 National Firearms Act, the 1968 Gun Control Act, and the 1986 Volkmer McClure amendment to the Firearm Owners Protection Act are what you’ll have to deal with when wanting to purchase a suppressor. The first thing people hear about when they’re looking at buying an NFA item, such as a suppressor, is the ATF Form 4. After paying the $200, let the suppressor company know the legal name of your corporation (they will send you an automated link where you can easily provide that information).
Finally, you need to take both copies of the Form 4 to your local chief law-enforcement officer (CLEO) and have him sign section 17 on both.

If you don’t feel like tracking down a CLEO or getting fingerprints, be sure to check out how to register using a trust!
The following video is from the Military Arms Channel, reviewing the Huntertown Arms Titanium Suppressor. Preppers talk a lot about the end of the world as we know it, but what does that actually mean? Your first priorities are to get safe, fix your broken self, fix others, and get out of Dodge.
They wargame what could happen, develop possible COAs (Courses Of Action), run through mock exercises in as-real a circumstance as possible each time, and then do AARs (After Action Reviews) to redefine mission parameters, gear, and necessary additional training. The more you make a plan, practice the plan, and adjust the plan, the more easily you’ll be able to deal with emergency situations. Essentially, everyone needs to not only know what to do, they need to know under what circumstances they should be doing it. A metal flashlight that contains just a bulb, batteries, and wire would probably survive with no problem.
If the cage was constructed properly, it should protect your electronics against a decently-hard hit. If you want to save some cash, get the Baofeng UV-5R but expect to spend some time learning it because it’s pretty confusing.
The neighborhood may be rioting, the forest could be on fire, a roving band of baboons may have been given human-like intelligence by a mad scientist and started a commune there – all sorts of things. Try to leave some sort of message to later parties who arrive so that they notice it and understand the message. You might also add something underneath one of the stones such as a note or even more discreet, a symbol (anything blue meant you headed toward water in that direction, for example).
Hopefully you’ve already shaped the battlespace of your bug out location to make it easier but if not, you need to do it now. If you’re in a decently-sized town, you can expect certain areas will riot very quickly.
You’ll have to balance your need to communicate with your need for OPSEC and evasion.
As before, prior commo planning will allow you to leave more accurate messages to your team while not giving away the message (or hopefully that there even is a message).
Remember that a half-assed plan that everyone follows is much better than a good plan that people follow half-assed.
The biggest thing to keep in mind with that plan is that you can’t have anything conductive come in contact with the foil or the current could follow that path as well. Would be good if we could have some editing capabilities, but I LOVE the convert to PDF option too.
For across town, a baofeng handheld ham radio programmed to hit the repeater towers is a decent choice but you have to get a license and have to work a while on figuring out how to use it.
You just won’t have the opportunity to collect all the information and intelligence needed to make an informed plan, but you need a plan nonetheless. 4 Walky talkys radios for local security , one old 1940’s tube radio ( short wave) works great.
Only thing I’d ask is what would you do if your neighborhood were quarantined or burned down? BTW IM FROM THE PHILIPPINES AND IM JUST STARTING TO PREPP AND THANKS FOR THE ADVICES APPRECIATE IT. But if I have to, I have a cart made ith 4 26 inch bike tires as I cant carry a heavy backpack like I could while in service(plus the spinal damage) so a cart for moving our BOB bags. In a no-government scenario, shunning and then banishing work pretty well due to the social pressures and then eventuality of having to fend for themselves.
They’re a bit too drafty as a winter coat but I guess you could tie something around it to bring it in to improve it. Several US media outlets have reported that NASA was warning the massive flare this month was just a precursor to a massive solar storm building that had the potential to wipe out the entire planet's power grid. If this does happen again, and presuming its the worst one in a century it will proberbly shut off the internet for good. It's eruption is well past due and if it is to erupt anytime soon, it will completely eradicate that of Mount Vesuvius (the volcano that erupted in 79 AD decimating the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.) Maybe this eruption will occur in the year 2012? The seems to cause a fair amount of stress as people worry over how they are going to fill out that dreaded form. You can have these taken at your local drug store, or you can take them yourself and print them on a color printer.
Note that the CLEO should have jurisdiction where you live – and will typically be either your Sheriff or the Police Chief.
Movies and TV shows almost never provide a realistic view of life after a worldwide disaster (for example, all the mowed lawns in The Walking Dead).

What you need to do after reading this article is to backwards plan so you can get to this point. During an EMP that blasts across most of the country, the first thing you’ll notice will depend on what time of day it is. So how would you know that this is a widespread event and not just that a tree fell on a powerline?
A plastic one that has a little micro-controller circuit in it would be much more likely to fry. There’s a lot of real crap out there on the web about how to build these things though so do some thorough research. Hopefully you stored a ham radio in some kind of shielding (and not had it still attached to the radio). Otherwise, you’ll spend a great deal of time just randomly trying to find each other. It’s also not waterproof and requires a separate battery charger thing to charge the battery, which is inconvenient.
Make it something that is out of the ordinary, can’t be accidentally done, is unlikely to be changed or moved, and easy to notice without having to walk right up to it. This makes it easier to try to reacquire that same Tx (transmit) signal at a different location or know when they may transmit again.
Your primary mission continues to be assembling the team, even if you have to divert resources to other missions such as collecting food or water. Please feel free to contribute your own ideas or experiences and help anyone who has questions. Put a couple layers of cardboard on the bottom and sides to insulate your electronics from the metal can.
Always gotta think about those who want what you have and don’t want to share (tin cans on fishing wire is one inexpensive but effective alarm system). As a lone wolf, I will have to follow a different plan, but I loved reading what you have to teach. Despite its rebuttal, NASA's been watching out for this storm since 2006 and reports from the US this week claim the storms could hit on that most Hollywood of disaster dates - 2012. Most experts agree, although those who put the date of Solar Max in 2012 are getting the most press. Of course thats what they said about Y2K which didn't do jack s***, but SOMTHING will happen I bet, it just wont kill everyone. Let’s just go ahead and pretend that an EMP just hit, something like in this book (which is a really good book to get you thinking). Wrap the electronics you want to protect in aluminum foil being sure to use multiple folds and squeeze tightly to seal all seams.
2 Also, if Bugging In, I suggest having a backup hidden stash in case those who don’t share get in and take your stuff.
Similar storms back in 1859 and 1921 caused worldwide chaos, wiping out telegraph wires on a massive scale. No one really knows what effect the 2012-2013 Solar Max will have on today's digital-reliant society.
They claim satellites will be aged by 50 years, rendering GPS even more useless than ever, and the blast will have the equivalent energy of 100 million hydrogen bombs.
Solar storms hit Earth all the time, and they do minimal damage and the last big ones were in 1859 and 1921. What they fail to miss is that sometimes the necessary assets to adequately deal with a situation aren’t readily available on a whim. Put the electronics in the metal trash can on top of the cardboard, put on the lid and then seal the space between the can and the lid with a couple strips of conductive tape making sure to leave no gaps. Dr Richard Fisher, director of NASA's Heliophysics division, told Reneke the super storm would hit like "a bolt of lightning", causing catastrophic consequences for the world's health, emergency services and national security unless precautions are taken. 3 And lastly, I’d be sure that those in your party are all educated with the weapons listed not just for self defense, but for hunting as well.
So for example if the solar storm actually hit America it would render most electrical equipment dead, thats the entire western hemisphere.
The flares change the magnetic field on the Earth and it's rapid, just like a lightning bolt. But realistically speaking this event proberbly won't kill as many people as you might think.
What will happen likely is that the EMP Burst will knock out most of the worlds electircal systems.
