Are you prepared for a long term grid down event?
Is there really anything in our world today that does not involve electricity? Actually, yes there is, but they are very few. Lighting; transportation; food production, preservation, and preparation; the acquisition, treatment and delivery of clean water; transporting and treating sewage and other waste streams; almost everything medical, our computer, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data
Acquisition), and internet systems; entertainment, media, and communication systems; manufacturing, industrial processes and production…and the list goes on and on.
All of these rely heavily on electrical energy. Even our natural gas systems require electricity to refine and compress this gas for delivery. I’m not sure I really need to ask this question, but I will! Do ya think a long-term grid-down situation will be a problem?
In this issue of the Journal of Civil Defense you will learn emergency medical techniques, how to make alternative sources of light, how to make your own bread, how to cultivate a survival garden, how to design your own home power grid, and more!
