  1. 1. ==== ====You Can Put All Your Hopes For Survival In The Government & FEMA… Or You Can TakeSurvival Into Your Own Hands… Please believe me when I say, as a fellow American I want tohelp you and your family survive any way I can. Keeping that in mind, you need to know: Whatfollows is of the utmost importance to your familys well being...http://tinyurl.com/88huvz4==== ====As anyone can tell you these days an emergency can happen at any time and any place.Remember hurricane Katrina? What about all of those other floods that have happened all overthe country in this last year? Yes, emergencies and disasters can happen at any time and in anyplace. It is a good idea to have an emergency preparedness action plan in place at home and allmembers of the home should know what to do and where to go in case such an emergencyoccurs. So you put a kit together and you make sure that you have enough food and water andmedical supplies as well as clothes and shelter as well as any other form of preparedness you canthink of.One of the most important things to consider in an emergency or disaster is what happens afterthe emergency has passed? What just happened? Where did that come from? When will thecavalry arrive? What is going on in other places? These are all questions that go through yourhead after the disaster or emergency has passed. Well how does one go about finding out theanswers to all of those questions? Well, not by asking the guy next door because chances are thatperson knows about as much as your do!In the aftermath of any type of disaster or emergency you are going to need information as to whathappened and what is going to happen. You might not have basic services after an emergency sothe television might not be working. Heck!, your television might not even be in the houseanymore. One of the most important aspects of any emergency preparedness plan is to have aradio at the ready.It is advisable to obtain an American Red Cross approved emergency radio that picks up AM/FMand the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) weather band. You do not need tostore batteries for this type of radio as they come with a hand crank generator for power. This typeof radio also comes equipped with an LED light source and many models have cell phonecharging adapters in them as well. In most cases cranking on the generator of this type of radio fortwo minutes will provide your with an hour of power. If basic services are still functioning in yourarea you can also use a standard AC outlet to power the radio and if you just happen to have AAbatteries laying around you can use them in this type of radio as well. This is a very flexible pieceof gear to have in any emergency preparedness kit or action plan for the home.With this type of radio you can and will always know what is happening in your area or any otherarea for that matter. Being informed just after a disaster keeps you ahead of the curve and inmany cases it keeps you alive. Remember information is king. If you dont already have anemergency disaster preparedness plan in your home it is about high time you thought about
  2. 2. having one and dont forget that your need to stay informed when emergencies arise.I know that this is not the most satisfying of subject matter to consider, yet everyone must considerit as a vital part of being prepared and in control of your safety.==== ====You Can Put All Your Hopes For Survival In The Government & FEMA… Or You Can TakeSurvival Into Your Own Hands… Please believe me when I say, as a fellow American I want tohelp you and your family survive any way I can.
