We all have that vision of fire and smoke. The end. Legions of desperate people invading our once quiet communities. These visions have only been affirmed with the actions of our tireless protestors.
These thugs with hoods and masks who seem to come only to hurt and break. What can be done to protect a whole community? It takes the whole community. The most important and overlooked part of our preparedness is the inclusion of the community.
There are lessons that can be used to bolster security on a community level. Through things like developing relationships with the local police. You will need buy-in from the people around you.
Let’s talk about concepts that you need to understand to build the foundations of good community security.
Fight Away from Home
While many people despise the American war machine, one thing it does better than any other is it keeps the fight away from home.
You dont want your security perimeter on your street. You want it far from your home and even outside your community. Do not fight a war that is on your lawn. Fight one that is outside of your community. Consider this when you are setting up security.
You Need Numbers
You need lots of people to work security. This is a big thing to remember. Everyone needs time at home and time to rest and sleep. If you have three security positions you need about 9 people who can monitor those.
We have the eye of God on our side right now. You can use satellite imagery to design your security perimeters and important locations. Right now you have the ability to sit down, clear-headed, and write ou a plan that can be easily digested by neighbors in hard times.
Most of the security happens before any type of breach.
