Custom Disaster Plan
Here's my disaster plan with footnotes (Footnotes in here) so you can begin to construct your very own disaster plan. I live in Bergen County, New
Jersey- so my disaster plans reflect my area, that where you do your customization.
6. ELECTRICITY CRISIS -Immediately go to store and stock up on non perishables, water, extra gasoline, and anything you may need. Prepare for the
worst. For instance if a solar flare was large enough it could put the whole east coast in the dark, for months. All our parts are made in other
countries and would take weeks to months to fix. Their priority would be their country first which would put us back into the stone age. Create your
plan and be careful when picking what you will do, staying indoors and letting the professionals handle whatever is going on outside is the best bet.
Major disaster's will leave the highway systems packed, and most likely you won't be able to get out unless you know what your doing. Next week
I'll be blogging about preferred methods of transportation in times like these.
-Remain home, if not home get home. (Most people would choose to evacuate to safe areas before hand)
-Create & stay in safe room (Choose room with few windows)
-Monitor news & weather with handheld radio
-Wait for 'storm' to pass
-Access damage, staying home if possible, seeking shelter via FEMA/O.E.M./CDC if staying where you are is no longer an optionl.
