I havent seen the commericals here.

Did you visit their website?

I just checked out the website. Doesnt seem to odd to me.

Its about being prepared for weather emergencies, or other type of "disasters" etc. Has contact info if you want to volunteer in the event of an emergency (flooding, blizzards, fires, etc)

Its kind of the same stuff talked about on the "Survivor" forum

Like they have a checklist:



When preparing for a possible emergency situation, it's best to think first about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth.

Recommended Items to Include in a Basic Emergency Supply Kit:

Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
Flashlight and extra batteries
First aid kit
Whistle to signal for help
Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
Local maps
Additional Items to Consider Adding to an Emergency Supply Kit:
Prescription medications and glasses
Infant formula and diapers
Pet food and extra water for your pet
Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container
Cash or traveler's checks and change
Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information from www.ready.gov

Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person. Consider additional bedding if you live in a cold-weather climate.
Complete change of clothing including a long sleeved shirt, long pants and sturdy shoes. Consider additional clothing if you live in a cold-weather climate.
Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper – When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach, bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.
Fire Extinguisher
Matches in a waterproof container
Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items
Mess kits, paper cups, plates and plastic utensils, paper towels
Paper and pencil
Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children





Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations.

Family Emergency Plan

It may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members.
Be sure every member of your family knows the phone number and has coins or a prepaid phone card to call the emergency contact.
You may have trouble getting through, or the telephone system may be down altogether, but be patient.

Emergency Plans
You may also want to inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one. Talk to your neighbors about how you can work together in the event of an emergency. You will be better prepared to safely reunite your family and loved ones during an emergency if you think ahead and communicate with others in advance. Read more: School and Workplace.

Good observation dmbeatz, Thank You for bringing this to our attention.


However, an actual link might help.
www.ready.gov...

Its nice to see something like this, but the timing is very interesting and suspect. Think about it, why wait years & years after Katrina to create and promote some good information like this. Just a tad too late don't you think.


Yes I am 100% convinced that this is to help people prepare for the big events leading up to 2012. Well, there is not an ounce of truth coming out of any officials mouth about this and they are still promoting their corrupt agendas, at least they are able to help people prepare. Very frustrating but I guess its better than nothing.

This is looking more and more like the Elites have a general attitude that they are just going to sit back and eliminate the week and take the strong that survive.

Click on (Ready America) and then click on (Be Informed) and this is the list that shows on the left hand side of the page.

Seems to also be urging people to join their local Citizen Corps and looks like a Pandemic is in the for front.

Do they know something we don't or is it a be prepared slogan thing?

This is nothing unusual. I live in Louisiana and we get notices with all this information mailed to us for hurricaine preparedness. The notices also include maps with evacuation routes. I will say that I have never seen a television commercial with the information, though.

I actually find the information of use, and don't see it as something prophetic of doom and gloom.

I fear it is just their way of being able to escape responsibility when something really catastrophic happens.. "Hey, we tried to warn you! See ya later!"

Canada has one too:
getprepared.ca...
They also advertise this on TV but rarely
probably an attempt to make you buy stuff that you don't need


they have a map with the list of "risks" for each province.
