evacuation plans

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm planning my evacuation route to my bugout location. I downloaded Google Earth for this and am creating a trail, trying my hardest to stay off any roads or at least major roads. Crossing under major highways along stream beds or railroad tracks. They say don't plan for a bugout location...

    Hope this helps with planning and prep for those planning on evacing the bigger cities. During a manmade disaster, or major civil unrest the national guard along with the assistance of other state and local agencies plan on having check points on every major egress routes out of the mid size...
  3. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I am a new member in here, but I’ve been reading for a while before I stared posting, and I read a lot more threads than I post to. I’ve noticed a lot of posts where the experienced preppers seem to expect that when the SHTF, that they expect there’s going to be a mass exodus of the...

    Every day there are posts of Bug In ... or Bug Out ... or whatever. How many people making the decision are really knowledgeable of US travel systems, including Air, Rail, Interstate, and State Hi-Way systems across the entire US? Then, there is the problem of bridges that cross waterways. Are...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So after a while reading through this forum and a few other similar forums I've come to the uneasy realization that if the SHTF there are going to be quite a few people who's primary plan is to bug out. I don't blame the bug out plan since people in the cities will have a more difficult time. My...

    I'm sure this thread has been done, and if that is the case please redirect me to the right place. BUT...I wanted to get a general idea of what people's bug in/bug out plans are and overall what the general consensus on planning and securing your home for an emergency situation is. I recently...

  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am submitting for review and suggestions a general overview of my bug out plan in effort to reach my BOL. I have shared this plan with all members of our group and thus far everyone feels that the plan is solid. I however, have some doubts and wish to receive some input. General...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So i was watching re-runs of Jericho last night and something "hit" me. The episode showed 2 guys driving into a deserted town (looking for meds for their dad)...and they stopped in front of a house that had orange spray paint on it. The one guy commented that FEMA had evacuated the whole town...
  10. Urban Survival
    I currently live out in the woods about 3 hours north of the city where my extended family lives. I am prepared to receive them, and take them in in case of a disaster in the city, but in the case of a sudden event I'm worried that roads will be blocked, they won't know what to do and I won't be...

    As hurricane Rita was approaching southeast Texas, the local officials called for a mandatory evacuation. Leaving southeast Texas, you have 3 highways heading north. One major highway, HWY 96 goes through a small community called Kirbyville. HWY 96 going into Kirbyville has been under...
