Vancouver survival kit store banking on The Big One


www.vancouversun.com

Most sales for the company, which has been around for 13 years, are made to three levels of government and to private companies stocking up on supplies for their employees.

So, this isn't exactly breaking news, but I found it interesting.

I don't have a local "survival store" where I live, so I am a bit jealous of Vancouver.

I did find it interesting that most of the company's sales are from "three levels of government".

The Candian government is apparently gearing up for something.....

What are your thoughts???

Funny this comes up. I have long thought about opening a "survival store" in my area, and was thinking about it again just this morning! I solicited a store like this prior to Y2K and thought it was great to be able to go to a storefront and see the things I might need not just online.

Will have to look into this further again!

Living in North Vancouver, I don't sense some sort of urgency in the air, maybe a business just trying to cash in by providing a specific service.

I don't see why people need to go to a survival store. We can just go to any generic store to buy tents, fishing rods, knives, and power panels but maybe the less experienced will need to go to a survival store for the advice.

We have coded two-three story houses that I'm fairly convinced will, in the majority of cases survive significant earthquakes.

Where will people run off to IF and that's a big if, if the big one hits and we are in a Hurricane-Katrina type situation where we are abandoned with criminal or malevolent elements running around with unregistered assault rifles and shotguns.

I expect the troubles to not be concentrated around the lower mainland as most people have the means to evacuate elsewhere, but according to wikipedia there are 2,524,113 people to deal with if a massive earthquake destroys plumbing, electrical and much physical structures.

We have the rockies, which is right next door to the north, Vancouver island to the west, Seattle to the south, drier, more arid areas to the east.

A few years ago I started socking up on "stuff"
the company I was buying my supplies from had me backordered for many Items for a while.
I asked the kind lady what the delay was from, and her reply was that some government agencies were buying many of the same products.

Kind of a relevant story...

I was sitting around in the administrative section of the Vancouver Canadian Forces recruiting center last year and I killed my time by looking at the stuff around me. Right in front of me was a big red box that stated it was a large survival kit that could hold a dozen or so people for a few weeks.

Considering Vancouver and if SHTF their, that little recruitment center will need it when bunkering down from thousands of rioters.
