If you still have doubts about whether you should obtain emergency preparedness supplies, this will change your mind.
The White House has warned that state and local governments should not expect “a significant federal response at the scene of a terrorist nuclear attack for up to 72 hours after the blast”, reports Steve Sternberg of USA Today.
The article goes on to say that, “the chaos that would inevitably follow such a blast would make it difficult for the federal government to react quickly. Emergency response is principally a local function.”
If you are still sitting at home thinking the government will take care of you in a disaster, you now know that you’ll be on your own for at least 72 hours. But let’s be realistic. At the 72 hour mark, the federal government is not going to be able to magically address everyone’s needs. So, what do you do?
I think you need to have 10 to 14 days of food stored for every person in your family. Now, I don’t know if that sounds like too much to you or not. But just look at what happened during after Hurricane Katrina. At 72 hours (3 days into it), everyone wasn’t taken care of. So, you really need to have 10 to 14 days of food for each member of your family.
Haven’t you wondered why the U.S. government has been talking so much lately about a potential terrorist nuclear attack? Draw your own conclusions from that. Please take action now and secure what you need to care for your family in a disaster.
