We all fear the WROL situation where the police disappear and things get very violent. Mob rule and tyrannical street war become the new norm and there is no guarantee when it will all end.
You need a plan to deal with this. It’s going to take a few very important inputs.
You are going to want to know what you are dealing with. In one hand you could be caught off guard if you dont know what’s going on out there. On the other hand, you could make rash decisions if you are paranoid and dont know the facts.
You are going to want things like emergency radios, police scanners and maybe even a HAM radio. Even if you lose power, you need to know what is going on out there!
When you are dealing with a WROL situation, you need resources to survive it. If the civil unrest and chaos is not happening in your backyard you will want to bug in and avoid it. That means you need all the resources to deal with that from food to first aid.
You are also going to need an emergency fund to pay the bills. You might be without work during a situation like this. Your job might be burned to the ground or you might decide you aren’t traveling in the conditions.
The bill collectors will likely still be operable. Have some cash on hand for a number of reasons.
Community is vital for a number of reasons. It can be a source of intelligence, it can be a source of resources and it can also be a source of POWER. Yes, there is power in numbers.
Setting up community security is going to be much better than just sitting on your porch with a gun. Security in numbers will deter larger groups from taking advantage of you and yours.
