More and more sources announce everyday that the whole mess in Syria is instigated by western countries, the US in lead, that ISIS and Al Qaeda are US sponsored, that Russia is being put under more and more pressure to (re)act and that our current banking- and financial system is on the verge of collapse, etc.etc. All these happenings are correlated.
I will not bother you with links. You can google yourself, if you dare.
But when the US president starts warning the citizens to be prepared for a disaster, then I get the feeling there is something in the air and that not only the US population should be prepared. If the US implodes, it will have a cascading effect on the rest of the world and thus everyone in it.
Barack Obama Warns Americans ‘To Be Prepared For A Disaster’
One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.
And what we’ve been seeing is some public complacency slipping in; a large portion of people not having preparedness kits, not having evacuation plans.
If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, as Craig said, we’ve got an app for everything now. We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster. You can update the National Weather Service alerts. You can get safety tips for more than 20 kinds of hazards. It provides you directions to nearby shelters.
