From the Cop side: One of the “other assigned duties I had as a Police Sergeant over the years was I was in charge of disaster planning/training and preparation. I guess since I had a bit of experience in real disasters, it was a good job for me to have. I had responded to multiple State Active Duty Missions with the Calif Army National Guard...floods, fires, earthquake and riot...
With the recent big earthquake they had on the east cost of the US, it’s kind of a reminder to make sure you are prepared. In the past, most people in the US had specific things that they would prepare for…and the east coast did not have earthquakes on that list of things to be ready for. As a rule of preparation, you should be prepared to survive on your own for at least 3 days. This means you have some type of shelter, food, water etc to survive.
When I was a kid, we lived in the middle of tornado country. As a kid, I thought it was really cool when we saw tornados….I didn’t know what kind of damage they could do. I also lived on the east cost a few years and remember getting ready for hurricanes. And having lived in California all my adult life, I knew to be ready for the “Four Seasons”- Floods, Fires, Earthquakes and Riots.
However, there is one disaster….that everybody around the world should be prepared for…and that is when the Zombies attack. The first things you need is sturdy shelter and a large caliber weapon with lots of ammo.
An old example of when Zombies attack:
If you are prepared for Zombies, you are prepared for anything.
