Product Review: Emergency Zone Urban Survival Bug-Out Bag
May 27, 2016, 5:08 am

I won this bag in a writing contest on The Survivalist Blog. I have to admit that I really had never seriously considered buying a bug-out bag such as this for two main reasons. First, I really like my home setup. I have very few scenarios in which I would consider bugging out. Second, I always had the idea that I could put together such a thing much cheaper myself by purchasing the items separately and putting together a custom piece. And of course, I had long ago put together a bug out bag that I felt was suitable for my situation. Winning this bag has made me a convert, and I'll explain...

a small terrier can make a good watchdog to warn you of intruders

Now when you go to choose  guard animals, the first and most important thing that you have to decide is what do you want the animals to do.  If you live in an apartment or house in an urban area your needs will be entirely different that someone who lives in the country and raises animals.

If you live in an apartment you may want a small dog that will give you early warning of a threat.  A good example would be one of the smaller terriers. They can be trained and are fairly alert. …

How to Survive a Drone Attack
May 26, 2016, 6:15 am

drone attackDrones, or unmanned, remote-controlled flight vehicles, are proving to have many uses. In the past, they have been used mostly for military operations and intelligence gathering. However, we?re seeing more and more uses in everyday life. They can be used for everything from surveillance, scientific research, and rescue operations to food delivery, photography, and monitoring the weather.

The FAA predicts there will be over 30,000 drones in U.S. airspace by 2030. The bad news is drones can still be used for deadly force. Could terrorist groups use drones to launch attacks against Americans? What happens if criminals get their hands on drones?

In the future, drone attacks could become more commonplace. The average American doesn?t really have to worry about being attacked by drones, but drone technology could eventually find its way into the wrong hands.

So what kinds of things can you do to protect you and your loved ones from a drone attack?

The first key is to make it more difficult for drones to find you. It?s harder for drones to identify a person when they are under thick cover from trees and brush. Consider camouflaging your home, property and vehicles by covering them with foliage and mud.

Drones are incredibly effective because some of them use infrared detection. That means that they see heat, like from human bodies, a warm home, or a fire. However, certain materials will block a drone?s capacity to detect body heat. These materials include aluminum, gold, plexiglass, and several types of pigment coating. These substances can be used as coverings for people as well as animals and dwellings.

It?s also always a good idea to have an underground shelter in which to hide if you know a drone attack is imminent. These underground shelters need to be made of materials that will keep the occupants safe from the bombs or missiles and the resulting fire from the explosions. Drone attacks have been known to cause severe burns.

Of course, these underground shelters will need to be outfitted beforehand with everything you need to survive until the threat has passed. Stock an underground shelter with emergency supplies like those found in a 72-hour kit like extra food and water, a first aid kit, radio, and so on.

Unfortunately, drone attacks are hard to detect. They often catch people unaware. Moreover, most people are not familiar with the sights and sounds of drones. Maybe, as drones become more common, we will be able to recognize them and develop advanced warning systems.
