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.
These sites are a great way to become informed--and stay informed.
I just wanted to make you all aware of this public information that is available for everyone--you and your families--please feel free to pass this information along.
i always wonder how protected our nation's computer systems are, for example, at power plants, dams and places like that. if those were ever breached, we would be in big trouble.
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
it's a scary thought how easily we could be crippled by a cyber attack.
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?
You, your baby, and your dog are right.
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 we are not here to stay just passin thru, but it is scary to think about terrorist attacks. Glad I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere.
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).
hi always nice to see you,not often in the forums i don't think, i will take a look at this information
