Some of you may be aware that I am a student in Homeland Security. I have been asked recently by many people interested in what I am learning--and what they need to know to protect themselves and their families in case of a disaster--natural or man made, were to occur in their immediate communities. There is much we all can do in awareness--and if you all are not readily aware and prepared--there is much to fear. Especially the unknown. As we all know now--the world is becoming ever connected via social media sites, news programs, etc. There is a lot of information out there and I want to share with all of you important information that you all can do to be aware on how to prepare, and take care of yourself and family in the most trivial of times.
I once heard someone say that the reason nuclear power plants are a bad idea as a replacement for coal-fired plants is that they could be targets for terrorism. I liked that idea at the time; since then, however, I have become a 911 conspiracy theorist
There are vulnerabilities everywhere, that is why it is pertinent that we all are prepared for anything that could happen. There is so much information out there, true and false--I just felt that if I did not make everyone aware of something that they could do in there own homes and communities in preparation efforts--rather than wait for emergency responses. Stay informed of correct information--and not just the conspiracy theories which are always good fodder for media networks from time to time
I think the fear of death is overrated and money driven. Everyone has a much higher chance to die simply driving down the road everyday than they do of dying in a terrorist attack. I think it is a load of hype. Everyone has to die sometime, why spend the short time you have worrying about when that time is?
Not only that--but there are other instances that may compromise or alter our daily lives--tornadoes, hurricanes--floods, snowstorms, wildfires, etc. Preparedness does not always mean preparation for terrorist events.
I agree with that. I think precautions should be taken in examples of weather and daily common sense precautions. I just think it's half things needed to know and half to keep the public in fear of something.
I agree that there are enough natural disasters of every type with which we have to contend that make it important to know about emergency measures in places where we reside. As to terrorist attacks...if and when they happen, we will be better prepared (hopefully).
Hubbers need to know if their account is a full-value account worth the full 40% income value to HP. Or if their account is a referred account that is only worth the partial 30% value to HP. Knowing one's value to HP is...
