         NEW TO PERSONAL PREPAREDNESS ?
                 Choose your Disaster ...

Depending on your area, different types disasters will be more likely.  Keep in mind, if it rains where you live, FLOODING can occur.  Weather events effect the entire world, so no what to expect and prepare for loss of goods / services.  Beyond weather, are conditions such as earthquake and tsunami, either of which can cause widespread destruction and loss of life as we know it.  Meteorological events while devastating and the stuff of disaster movies, are extremely rare.  Constants in human history include war, social unrest, riot and breakdown of rule of law.

                    So what should I prepare for  ?
An ALL HAZARDS APPROACH is the best way to prepare for difficult times.  
* Stay aware of what is happening in your area ... monitoring weather and news can help you know what is dangerous and give you ideas of what you should do.
All Hazards Weather Radio, with crank, battery and solar power are lifesavers.   Some can also charge your cell phone.
* Bug Out - have the ability to leave quickly if conditions in your area become hazardous.  More information can be found at www.ready.gov
* Bug In - also known as Shelter In Place, would be conditions where it might be safer to stay where you are, rather than take chances leaving the area.  Be ready to stay in your location for a minimum or 3 days, with a goal of 2 weeks or longer.  
www.ready.gov also has information regarding shelter in place.
*Safety in Numbers - is an important concept that you should consider when planning for emergency.  Having a group who shares plans with backup plans can be life saving. * Communication - is the most mentioned problem identified by those in emergency preparedness experts in either exercises or actual disasters.  So if you are working with a group, remember that communication will likely break down.  Cell phones may be the first to malfunction in crisis, use text messages with a time stamp for vital information only. Allow much more time for an answer.  Don't rely on last minute planning which requires communication, rather, have a plan, and also plans B, C etc in case plan A fails.
* Survival Basics - rule of 3s ...
3 minutes without air - dust, smoke, fumes, chemicals
3 hours without shelter - hypothermia or hyperthermia
3 days without water - loss of water accelerates in warm or windy weather
3 weeks without food -  most well nourished humans can survive but badly 
3 months without socialization - can lead to insanity and poor decisions
3 years without medical treatment - most humans need healthcare to survive

Is TicketCity Legit, Risk-free and Reliable?

I found an incredible deal for Hamilton tickets away from state and was ready to make the trek over the weekend within the amount of the lifetime so I developed the acquisition unbeknownst to me of all the harmful opinions out in this article. I right away obtained a affirmation e mail of your obtain to wait for an e mail with details to the digital transfer of your tickets. Intellect you the clearly show is four days away so when 19 several hours of no more word from your vendor, I fearful and found all these horrifying review articles so I known as my financial institution to look at about disputing the demand which bundled the insurance policy just in case I desired a refund. By the way after i reached out to the insurance policies business enterprise working with the link they despatched me, it said they could not locate a plan amount with my title and number. So don't trouble while using the coverage in my opinion- just a technique to give them an additional $25. The lender prompt I aim to arrive at out prior to when I perused the disputed so I emailed them implementing exactly the same e-mail I obtained when using the confirmation amount. I was well mannered, temporary and requested for an update. I been given an extremely high quality and welcoming e mail reply inside of twenty minutes suggesting I wait and detailing the method a bit more suitable about ready with the seller to call me through email. Then not half-hour later I gained an e-mail while using the ticket transfer from TicketCity ticketcity reliable and once I signed into TicketCity I had been able to transfer the tickets easily and as soon as possible. Possibly it absolutely was luck but all labored out splendidly for me inspite of many in the other horrifying recommendations. Just wait and see, courteous and provides them an opportunity considering the fact that as soon as they have got payment your very best bet may be to use kindness as your weapon of preference and find out simply how much even more you can expect to get like I did the awfully to begin with time. Hope this will help some folks but I'd persist with shopping for straight from Ticketmaster later on but when you produced a buy and don't listen to back rather quickly just deliver them a good take note to check with and you simply might just be surprised on the end result!
