Surviving an EMP

In his book, "One Second After" author William Forstchen paints an incredibly real picture of what life in a post-EMP America could look like. Staged in a small town, surrounded by mountains, the people of the town had to come to grips with the many problems faced by their technology suddenly coming to a stop and having to live in a world without electricity.

Millions would die and those who survived would be forced to find other ways of doing things. But for millennia mankind existed without electricity and all the modern conveniences it has brought us. So really, we don't need to look forward to...

Your First Actions When Disaster Strikes

Planning is a big part of anyone's prepping. After all, what good does it have to build a huge stockpile of supplies, if you're not sure how you're going to use them. You might have just the thing you need, but if used at the wrong time, it might give you just the wrong result. A large part of the reason we plan is that when an emergency happens, there usually isn't enough time to think about what you need to do. If you don't have a written plan in place, you just might find yourself running around in circles,...
