Moms Presentation at Church

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I think it's been nearly a year since I've posted. Anyway, I am doing a presentation for my moms group at church about Emergency Preparedness. It's not until May. But, I am beginning my work now to prepare. I was going to highlight 3 day, 7 day, several weeks and several months as far as timeline goes and only mention extended, long-term survival briefly (I think I need to start at a pretty basic level with this group). I was also going to highlight what to do for their vehicles, BOBs, staying at home scenario, and their day bags' (AKA diaper bags) contents.

 

What would you all say would be your top 10 or 5 points to be sure to hit on? Keep in mind they all, like me, have little kids, and they probably don't have ANYTHING started (unlike me).

 

I am also going to make them a 90 day guide to getting prepared. I will break activities down by weeks and have them do certain tasks each week.

I would try to pique their interest with dietary needs for infant and small children

 

# 10 dehydrated food like cream of wheat, Milk,  Oatmeal, mixed fruits rice , and the creamy fruit drinks children that have come from choice

 

Will find it hard to handle just water and eating bugs, fish and beans and road kill  for breakfast.

 

Then look into BOB"is for children each person needs to carry their own water some food and whatever tools they are age capable of using

Light and lights should be logistically the same as yours having too many different batteries is a mistake.

 

Books on wild edibles and scouting / camp and knots there are playing cards with this very information also.

 

Simplified but common building skills, stone and stick stacking weaving of material or bark yurts TEE PEEs mud mortar adobe etc.

 

Live trapping like the figure 4 trap box traps pit and funnel for all animals like bait fish edible fish small game because these are the basics.

I would leave out butchering killing snaring too gruesome for polite society.

 

Fire making from magnifying lenses bow & drill chemical and flint & iron parsing tinder making fire cloth etc.

 

Finding water treating water.

 

There are many skills like making shoes from found scrapped or natural material like grasses, wood or a collection of all.

 

They should have an understanding of medical problems like choking, hypothermia, etc., as well as shock and some basic first aid

 

Children are clever and are like a sponge the issue you will run into IMHO will be the parents and they can be very old fashioned

 

first sign of blood or gore and they go weak in the knees so you might consider an advanced volunteer class.

 

Some other projects would be built soap box derby cars, wooden gears to make or run a grist mill or power a water screw,,

 

There used to be so many clubs like weeblos Y Indian guides and others that taught wood craft leather work lacing weaving

 

Fire making and camp safety, cooking etc.

 

As far as I know cloth diapers were all that was used until about 50 + years ago and due to there being reusable it would be the only alternative

 

and having a supply of dawn dishwashing liquid as poop has oils etc that need a soap that will brake sown it's components I guess a paper towel

 

In the rear could help in keeping them clean, although they would still have to be laundered each use and you would have to carry enough

 

from water source to water source or as a time factor.

 

another concept is to help them build a faq notebook and primitive tools use.

 

I hope this was helpful

I did a series of posts here on this site on keeping you BOV ready that might have some info of use to you.   I also have a site on synthetic lubes that you might find interesting.   http://www.lubedealer.com/Partsmans-Site    Hope you have a good response to your talks.  Too many think they will never have a need and are dismayed when reality happens.  It is better to be prepared and never have a need than to have a need and no way to fix it.

how did this go...did you convert anyone to being a prepper?

Well, this was done in May 2014. And, no I think the busyness of life and getting kids from here to there has kept most moms away from this. Busy lives and money are the two biggest factors to young families not prepping.

 

I had two people give follow-up feedback:

 

1. The first mom said she took my suggestion of putting a luggage tag on the kids' car seats with their names, DOBs and emergency contact phone numbers in case of a car accident.

 

2. The other mom said she thought about stocking up on some canned items at Costco.

 

These are fellow Believers, but we Americans cannot see past the immediate, short-term needs (like getting to all the extra-curricular activities).

Spot on MommyLiberty Americans are so vexed with blessings they see no possibility of a future without plenty.

 

this sets up a cycle of detachment from reality as people in Carolina are having to deal with the aftermath of a 1,000 year flood.

If people were prepared the initial time to help friends and neighbors would be minimal to immediate.

as well as having medical kits to handle minor injuries and water purification methods to insure safe potable water source.

 

My worry is a national event similar to a non traditional depression or some other event that would make it difficult to impossible to move freely would create a domino effect as in people forced to go out for food in an epidemic.

It does not have to be a end of the world scenario a killing flu or similar disease or virus that kills an exceptional number of victims you and your family would be exposed to if your not prepared.

in this flood people in a dry home if not ready would be forced out to get food and water entering tainted water and coming in contact with people that may have contracted a disease from bad water diseases are harbored in ground and in these events they come back.

 

We can plead and explain but every generation seems to have to experience a catastrophic event to mobilize them off the couch.

Even if I have to bug out at least I can take immediate supplies and not be a burden or be forced into throngs of people behaving badly.

 

Your taking a brave stand to ask others to take personal responsibility for their protection readiness and survival figure some may label you a reactionary or chicken little but be strong carry  on---

Thanks, Snake.

 

I even made up this way to be prepped in 12 Weeks from a personal, vehicle, in home (short-term scenario), and Bug Out scenario. It includes supply lists, reading materials from Lofty Wiseman's book, daily tasks to perform to get it all accomplished. It's called my 3.4.5. (3 Months, to prep 4 scenarios (on person, in vehicle, in home, and bugging out), in 5 categories [water, food, shelter (heat/warmth), first-aid, misc. supplies/materials]). It does not address firearms - it was a church group in which a mom's good friend had just lost a son in a hunting accident and I felt it was too "fresh" to mention. Plus, not all the moms in the group are "pro gun." My point is that, it was SO comprehensive that even if a person took a bit longer than 12 weeks to do it s/he would be far better off than before. It explains my "why" also. I made a PowerPoint presentation and everything. And, I gave all this to them FOR FREE. It amazed me that no one took it seriously. And, these national disasters are not enough of a lesson???

Mommy,

Despair not, that no one took you "seriously". It's called the "Normalcy Bias", if we SEE a glaring issue, we then HAVE to ACKNOWLEDGE it.

Most folks choose NOT to acknowledge problems facing their very survival, so that IS "normal".

Giving something you sacrificed for "for free" is a great service to people who do profess to be Believers or disciples of Christ.

However, even in His time on Earth, more than half the people who PERSONALLY interacted with Him, never beleived He, was their Savior.

Nope, their "normalcy bias" kept them waiting until the Babylonians/Assyrians/Persians swept in an ravaged Judea all over again.

Oh well, live and learn.

Now, I think you should look at what YOU learned from that exercise and what YOUR family gained from your involvement and your presentation.

A far greater value and priceless resource SKILL to protect, aid and comfort YOUR family in time of need.

What else is MORE important than that?

End of Irish Uncle TP's "lecture", nobody likes a lecture.

Keep doing what you are doing for your family and for those in your personal Sphere of Influence, and if the "church ladies"

don't or won't "get it", no problems. Remember, the parable of the Bridegroom and the 10 Virgins in the Bible, HALF of them FAILED

to "get it" or recognize the PROBLEM. What makes us think it's going to be any LESS than half will even come close to "getting it"?

I only use that parable as I find it to be pretty much dead on the spot in actual life. Half the folks are HUA in general

either by commission or ommission. Either way, the Ostgrich Syndrome IS a very real affliction far too many have, even among

Believers. Hope this helps, No Fear, never look back, burn the bridges if necessary, it's OK!
