Prepared Not Unprepared - The Ready Center

Below is a link to a very short narrative sharing two fictitious conversations that take place immediately after an EMP attack on the United States. One conversation is between a husband and wife who are prepared for disasters. The other is between a husband and wife who are NOT prepared for disaster.

Although it is a very short read (3-5  minutes), it does an excellent job of communicating the possible realities of those who prepare, and those who do not.  Enjoy.

And as always, if we can help you and your family prepare in anyway, we would be honored to do so.

After dealing with the onslaught of “Memorial Day” photos all over Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and the rest of the internet, it seems necessary that someone remind America what Memorial Day is really about.  And what it’s not about.

NBC Revolution Power is Everything - The Ready CenterOn May 9, 2014, bad news came to those of us who have come to appreciate the American Post-Apacalyptic television genre.  NBC announced that it would not  renew Revolution for a 3rd season.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of viewing Revolution, it really is an outstanding show.  It came from the director of IronMan and was produced by J.J. Abrams (the guy who brought us LOST).

Revolution takes place 15 years after the start of a worldwide, permanent electrical-power blackout.  All electricity on Earth was suddenly disabled at a moment’s notice.  Trains and cars stopped where they were, ships went dead in the water, and aircraft fell from the sky and crashed.  No cell phones, no working gasoline pumps, no running water, no grocery stores full of products, and for many people, no hope.  People were forced to adapt to a world without electricity over the next fifteen years.  The story (more…)

The Ready Center Tactical

I found another old email from a friend and thought I’d share it.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If you don’t own a gun, you should get one and learn how to use it.

A: Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B: Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

C: Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

D: Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

E: Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a slug being chambered when you cock a shotgun)

F: The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

H: If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

J: In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

K: If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about? (I call it being prepared)

L: You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language. (more…)
