Any info is better than no info, and there could be a certain amount of "know your enemy" built into this, too. Not that you'd necessarily be the enemy of FEMA, but if you identify areas where you think their strategies are weak or if you have concerns about how they might respond to certain situations in your area, knowing what their SOP is could only help you out. Being able to anticipate - and therefore avoid - any pitfalls is a great prepping strategy.

OC, you are correct. I do feel that we will be the enemy of fema, per se, since we have our own preps and do not require their handouts. Plus they will want our preps for their "redistribution" and I'm sure how we feel about that.

The more I think about it, the more I think having un-hidden "hidden" caches that are relatively easy to confiscate make sense. Food, firearms, etc.: let someone think they've found what they are looking for, so they don't keep looking for more. Secret your important preps away in false walls and then put a shelf full of canned goods in front of it. If nobody ever comes to take them, if you're never looted, then you can use them - yay! But if someone does, you can look cleaned out and actually not be left without resources.

That is a great idea, OC, and one we might all want to keep in mind. Might not be a bad idea to keep your firearms (should anyone here just so happen to possess such) in two groups, paper and no paper. If the authorities come to take what you have, I know the "cold dead hand" approach may be exactly what you will get. Instead, contritely deliver what you have "on the books" and apologize for taking up the National Guard's valuable time. There, is that obtuse enough?

Bill, it's always best to keep the papered vs unpapered items in separate locations. You pointed out an observation probably much oberlooked.

 

The other part of your post reminded me of a friend's comment to his son-in-law back in the 90's (we worked together in construction). His son-in-law was a LEO in lake county Indiana and they were discussing what would happen if the order was given to confiscate privately owned firarms. The son-in-law said he would come to get his my friend's firarms. My friend's only reply was, "Who will they send to get my neighbor's?" It took a few minutes for it to sink in and a few years before they actually spoke again but the son-in-law got the message loud and clear....lol.

I thought the subtle reference to what would happen was very well stated. I know when we got the survey about firing on civilians if given the order, the ones who answered they would got very good at cleaning latrines, taking out garbage, etc.

Personally, if I know they are coming to get my preps, I will burn it before allowing them to have it. I choose who my charity goes to, NOT the fed gov't or even local gov't who I respect alot more. Just like I refuse to give ANYTHING to the red cross. If I get a postage paid envelope from them, I mail it back with a letter explaining WHY I think they are frauds. I look for actual charities to donate to and those are getting hard to find.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
