"Preparedness" VS "Survivalism"Riding Fences At Serenity Ranch With Horses

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

This site is for the Self-reliant who want to share information with others of like mind, and then get out and PRACTICE. We believe that it doesn't matter what type of disaster causes a survival situation, your mind (and Preps) should be well-rounded enough to allow you to live, and work, through it. We're committed to making sure that EVERY decent person has the knowledge to help them and their families live through any crisis!

It's not enough to simply "Survive", you must also "live"!

With the influx of Disaster Response Professionals to this site, and the many requests for sharing Disaster related information with other professionals around the world, we're adding more information regularly! Whether you're a Hazmat specialist, State Disaster coordinator, Doctor, Paramedic, Police Officer, a community leader, or a lone family out there preparing against personal disaster, WE have the proven information here you need to stay on top, and more importantly, to stay safe, Survive, and Live!

We provide information on the areas of Disaster Preparedness, Self-reliance, Disaster Response, Rescue, all aspects of disaster avoidance and Survival Skills.

Our information comes from the experience of professionals all over the globe, learn from the experiences of others.

Fallout Simulator - An excellent shareware program that allows you to enter a nuke yield in kilotons and a windspeed. The program will then compute the distance from ground zero that the fallout will spread at given intervals and the strength of the radiation dose. With yields above 50kt, a map of the world appears and you can pick a target to simulate an attack. Use this to plan your Disaster Response Operations or Evacuation routes. Size - 60kB, in zip format, works with DOS or Windows.
