If the power grid was down for any length of time water and sewer would begin to be a problem as well as food and heat. Do you have any plan should a long term catastrophe cripple basic utilities

excellent, I don't think many of us are that prepared. May I ask, what if a crisis extended beyond the supplies you've stored do you have any contingency plan?
We need to learn lessons for India! The power grid everywhere is very delicate and America, especially the cities, are not prepared. Thanks for your answer.
Thanks Ib, I'm wondering if we could shouldn't think community. I mean, like within a neighborhood for instance, get together and develop a plan....what do you think?
Community would be pretty helpful. However, there are some neighbors that I would not want to get stuck with for a couple of hours.
Ha, ha, me tooo, but something tells me we might need them too. If you have time I would really appreciate it if you would take a look at a hub I wrote on this subject and tell me what you think. Thanks, Dan
You sir sound like you are in fine shape. My only worry might be a storm sever enough to wash toxins into the water supply. Is that a concern where you are? Also, I think you are likely to find you have a lot of company
I'm not a survivalist, but I have thought about this before. The biggest concern for everyone in the US should be the location of every nuclear power plant. Once those are no longer maintained, they will all explode after a few weeks.
Ironically, I used to work at a nuclear power plant in CA. You are correct but they need surprisingly little maintenance. They mostly just need to be constantly monitored. If necessary they could be safely shut down and secured pretty easily.
