Dutch government warning of coming dissaster on the radio!

Today at work I was listening to the Dutch radio, when the advertisement's came I was stunned when I heard this! Or words to this affect.
In Holland we have everything we need but have you stopped to think, one day we may not!
Did you stop to think what it would be like if suddenly we had no,running water,
No electricity, no gas, no heating, no....... and on and on he went, describing every possible scenario possible, every possible scenario which we conspiracy theorist discuss all the time!
But this was the Dutch Government warning it's people.
I couldn't catch the end of the advertisement so I did a Google!

Are the Dutch government warning us of Armageddon?

I recently read in a national Dutch newspaper that government leaders, are warning government members of a coming world wide disaster and are warning members to stock up, with food and water and are even issuing Dutch politicians with a survival kit as a Christmas packet in place of the usual traditional gifts of wine and other luxury gifts!

Holy Cow!

Maybe they are warning you that the BackStreet Boys are together again.

It is called Diaster Preperation. Lose Power in the coming winter and it will get COLD.

I cannot speak for the Dutch, since I live here in the United States. The question begs to be asked: If the US Government knew about a disaster of unequalled scale where about to strike and there was nothing that could be done to prevent it.......would they tell us.....?

I would have to They would not want the panic, rioting, general upheaval as they took cover undergound to save themselves.

Take for example, whenever an astroid comes close to general they tell us about it two or three days after it misses......never before.

I am getting the feeling they really don't care about me......I am saddened..........

Most governments have civil defence/emergency plans. UK is no different.

Current British Government advice is provided by the Home Office "Preparing for Emergencies" website & also a series of booklets which were issued to every household a few years ago.

HMG - Preparing for Emergencies

If you are at home and an emergency happens, try to gather together: * A list of useful phone numbers, such as your doctor's and close relatives' * Home and car keys * Toiletries, sanitary supplies and any regularly prescribed medication * A battery radio, with spare batteries * A torch with spare batteries, candles and matches * A First Aid kit * Your mobile phone * Cash and credit cards * Spare clothes and blankets Also, it is always useful to have: * Bottled water, ready-to-eat food (e.g. tinned food) and a bottle/tin opener, in case you have to remain in your home for several days

It can look a bit alarming to read that advice in isolation but it's been the mainstay of civil defence since World War 2. With blizzards predicted for my neck of the woods by the end of the week I guess much of it is commonsense.

Isn't Holland also one of the primary forces behind seed-banking? I know the US has a bank vault at the pole, but have heard Holland's is more comprehensive and was first gov. to start the process.

Also, was there not some info recently about a Holland gov. official talking about Holland's disaster facilities and what a large percentage of their population the gov. could shleter long-term? And then a scandal surrounding that official's statement/warning?

... I think there is some math here that merits a harder look. Dutch math.

Their is weight to this warning

We had a thread on ATS a week or 2 ago about FOX discussing the Dutch 2012 warnings. The discussion was blanked out because of the EMERGENCY Test they out of the blue, did and conveniently on the discussion was over the emergency test finished.

Video here

original ATS thread here

Definitely something going on.

The seedbank is in Norway. Don't know about the primary driving forces, but it aren't the Dutch. The warning official was Swedish I believe (could've been Danish), but not Dutch.

To the OP: nearly every country periodically runs some sort of prevention and education campaign. I remember ads telling us to be watchful in public places for suspicious packages and people around 2002. Nothing happened then. Some years later we had a campaign to raise our awareness of the air raid sirens and what to do if they go off. Again nothing happened, and there's no reason to believe this campaign is any different imho.

The thread linked to below provides some sources. Ads have running on tv and radio for nearly a month now.

I think if you Google, nood pakket, or something along them lines, you will find loads of websites offering survival stuff, you your self would know what was linked to the government!

you never know what's gonna happen. I think the Dutch govt. is just being prudent. It sounds like a good initative on their part.

Yes it's a real advertisement. They also have a tv commercial variant with the same information.

I wouldn't worry about it...

Why? Why now? It is a bit unnerving to say the least!
A Dutch buisness man asked me yesterday if I wanted to buy a life raft, this is all, very coincidental, you have to understand, most of us live under sea level!

Not only does the dutch government broadcast these adds quite frequently, but not long ago we had a couple of flood-drills, where I live, that made me re-think the reason behind it all.

Fact, most of our country is well below sealevel, so it is only logical we prepare ourselves for floods and such. But as long as I can remember we allready have a good working (sirene) warning system, wich is tested every first monday of the month precisly at 12:00hrs. When this system goes off on any other day, we dutchmen know we have to close all our windows and switch on our radio and/or TV so that we may be informed. We dutch are verry much aware of the water, our biggest potential threat. But why all the extra fuzz?

It is hard to say whether the government is building awareness, or is actually trying to warn us about impending danger But to me it looks like they know and expect something, we citizens don't. Never mind my own personal gut-feeling that something dramatic is not far from happening.

Maybe it is all done to create some fear, so that we go along with all sorts of measures imposed on us, as docile sheep.

Either way, imo there's more to it then meets the eye.

I don't agree with this post. You cannot prepare for a reunion such as that.

You say this is the dutch gov't warning the people.

I don't know how radio works there - is it public funding and therefore the commerical was from the gov't or was this a commercial like we have in the USA - a Capitalist commercial - selling a product?

Well actualy, it's 8.30pm here and I have just seen the ad on television and it's meant to shock, although I can't see what a bag of candles, torch, radio and some other stuff are gonna really help?
