How to Prepare for War at Home

The occurrence of war can be traced back centuries ago. Seemingly, conflicts have been in and out and endlessly existing which then causes a war to behold. There are a lot of reasons as to which a war could exist or happen. However, is this something that we would want to happen? If otherwise, how prepared are we if ever a war does happen again?

It has been circling the globe and alarming the population that the possibility of World War III is likely to happen. Indeed, it is not something that we would want to hear or come across on. We open the TV and watch heartbreaking news every day. However, knowing that the possibility of World War III is bound to happen is something that we wished to never hear or see in the news.

When will this War Happen?

No one could actually predict or estimate the exact date of the occurrence of such a war. However, the possibility of it happening is significantly high. It is so high that it is creating fears globally.

If you can notice what is happening in the world, almost neighboring countries share their own personal conflict. That alone just says so little of what still lurks around the corner. A few of the most powerful countries that has nuclear powers are also in the heat and with arising conflicts. These countries are capable of destroying so much land and ending lives of majority of the population with just a single missile launch.

Nonetheless, there are all sorts of news regarding the World War III. Also, the media can be a little bit biased some times and tweak the stories around. In short, sometimes it can be hard to trust the news and know whether what to believe. But, if you just keep on letting yourself be informed, there is no way that you will not come out prepared. The more you know, the more you become ready both mentally and physically.

Who are or will be Involved in this War?

The possibility of World War III happening is something that the global population is involved at. Mostly all of us are included in this equation of conflicts. The heat of the problem is revolving around the most powerful countries in the world.

Specifically, North Korea and the USA are on some serious conflicts and are in the verge of exchanging nuclear threats. North Korea was reported to have threatened the US, particularly Donald Trump, to give up and wave the flag. In addition, Kim Jong-Un wants Trump to submit to his demand about implementing a policy beneficial to North Korea it seems. Furthermore, Kim Jong-Un followed up with threatening Trump with some “unexpected gifts” to come to US. These “unexpected gifts” are presumed to be nuclear missile tests to shake the fear out of the US President.

Despite China and Russia, former allies of North Korea, advising Kim Jong-Un to calm down. Still, Kim Jong-Un is determined on his quests for nukes. So much involves the conflict between North Korea and the US. It could also be a long discussion if we try to understand the root of its conflict. Furthermore, aside from North Korea and the USA’s ongoing conflict, other countries are also having their own misunderstandings. Well, in this case, I guess misunderstanding is already an understatement.

The bottom line is, if you have been actively listening or reading the news, you will come to realize that wars have already been happening. Most importantly, you will understand that there is a higher chance of a larger, global war to take in place. Hence, there is an importance to keep yourselves updated with the news to know what is going on and just be solely aware and… ready.

Imagine this!

Let us paint a picture and create a clear scenario as to what we think might happen. Let us take a trip down to memory lane and try to remember what came about during the Pearl Harbor. It was the Japanese taking us by surprise during the year 1941.

What if this time will be like the Second Pearl Harbor? Just imagine waking up to what you expect to be a fine morning. Then, only to find out that there are already military aircraft roaming around the sky. One missile swooshing after the other creating those deafening explosions. What could be worse is if those death-causing explosions rain over to where you are or the local are near you.

Now, if the world war continues to occur even though far away from you, how would you prepare yourself from the aftermath of it? Let us say the war has ended and all that is left is an economic downfall, shortages in the resources of basic’s man’s necessities (e.g food, water, electricity) and broken building and infrastructures. What would you now do?

What Takes Place During and After the War?

The things that happen during and after war are not all about the exchanging of explosives or bullets. The war before is not the same as the war now. Unlike before, that a battalion of soldiers of the opposite parties comes face to face a particular place. Then, they just run with anger and determination, meet in the middle and kill their enemies. Whoever waves their flag first or surrenders to the other party, basically loses. On the contrary,  It is far more beyond than that.

In our generation now, careful strategic planning and an element of surprise takes place. Now, killing your enemies can be done even thousands of miles apart. Due to the newly discovered technology such as a missile. It has now become more advanced, that the technicalities in starting a war is far more complex. They need to have a well-thought out plan in order to have a step forward ahead of the game. More so, that there is now the government, the society and the state rules that makes everything non-spontaneous.

A government thinks about its people and its whole being. This includes the economy, the political state and the society in general.

MARTIAL LAW

The number one predicted to most likely happen during a war is Martial Law. What is Martial Law you may ask?

Martial Law, in simple terms, is the intervention of a government to have power over everything. Basically, it requires the people to abide by the newly implemented and strict rules made by the government. For example, you are to be locked down in your houses and not go out unless told otherwise. Furthermore, you are not allowed to stay outside of your house past the set curfew time. Usually, the curfew time is earlier than the normal curfews before.

In addition, a control in transportation services are also made by the government. In general, everything will be controlled by the government. This is duly for the reason to conserve remaining sources, prevent additional damages caused by the war and basically monitor ongoing activities. Strict monitoring will mostly happen. It is the government’s way in ensuring that everything will not go over board or the situation will not worsen as it has due to the war.

How Should you Prepare on the Upcoming War?

We could try ignore the fact and just shrug it off our shoulders. But, it is somewhat vital for every one to at least come prepared. Well, it is better to be prepared than to be caught off guard during the moment.

It is hard to imagine and accept the fact that a war might happen soon. Definitely, it is a terrifying thought to imagine. More so, to have yourself and the whole family prepare for such an event. Irregardless of the horrific scenarios you might be thinking now, it can be guaranteed that having the sense of preparation can save you in such unwanted situation.

The growing threat of war that is being faced by America, U.K and Israel is indeed growing. There is clearly an urgent need to equip yourselves with the knowledge and skills as to the what’s and how’s during a war. Even though if you live in non-threatened areas, still, knowing these skills and being prepared will absolutely pay off.

At this point in time, we all want to be a superhero to increase our chances of defeating the enemy. Whoever it might be of course. Despite the fact that the effects of a war might affect us in a more economical, political and global scale. The most important thing we need to look out for is our home, ourselves. So, what should a mere person like you do to ensure your safety and being during a war?

Keep the News on All Time!

The very first thing that is important is to be informed at all cost. Knowing the whereabouts and the severity of the war is important. Because, this will be your major guidelines as to what to do in order to keep safe and even alive.

If there is the resource of electricity, then it is best to take advantage of it responsibly. This is through utilizing electricity in terms of turning on the TV and Radio. Furthermore, tuning on to the news that gives the most up-to-date updates.

Charge all Electric-dependent Gadgets or Equipment

As long as you have the availability of electricity, it is better to take advantage of it immediately. Keep your phones charged to always have the accessibility to call and communicate whenever needed. Also, charge emergency lights and other electrical-dependent equipment that can be helpful during times like these.

Along with this comes responsibility. It does not mean that you have the resource of electricity, you will abuse it. Use electricity responsibly. Most importantly, use your gadgets and electrical equipment wisely and responsibly. Use them only if the situation calls or if it is urgent and important.

Make sure to have Sufficient Food and Water Resources

One of the most important things to have in your household is food and water. This is important because this will keep you, basically alive, as you quarantine yourselves inside your houses. If a Martial Law may occur, at least, you are already prepared in terms of food and water resources.

During this time, it will be recommended to consider making freezer meals. This will give you an ample amount of food consumable for a month.

On the other hand, you need to have water available in your household too. In order to do so, you can stock water in volumes and provide yourself with a water filtration system. Through this, you need not to worry about contaminated water that you gotten from rainfall or the nearest river near you.

Prepare all Other Resources and Supplies Available

Other than the basic necessities, it also to prepare an emergency kit. This emergency kit will contain other important supplies that you need during these time. Such supplies include a flashlight, sets of batteries and a first aid kit.

Other important necessities to have on hand is an N95 dust mask, gas mask and Potassium Iodate tablet. These three are also important to avoid any health damages caused by nuclear gases and other dusts carried off by the war. The masks can help prevent inhalation of chemicals or dusts caused by the explosions and nuclear poisoning. The Potassium Iodate tablet is a kind of medicine that can help you block off radioactive iodine caused by radiation. Such radiation can come from nuclear attacks.

Have Sufficient Supply of Fuel

It is important to have the availability of as much important resources as you can. Especially, if you have a car, having gallons of fuel can definitely be handy. Most importantly in nuclear bomb attacks, wherein if there is a chance to travel to a safe zone, you can easily do so.

Furthermore, fuels can also be used, not only for cars, but for generators as well. There is high probability that the source of electricity may be taken down. So, it would be a big advantage to have fuel available to fill up your generators, if applicable. This is to ensure that you have the source of electricity, which is vital in these cases.

 

Keep your House Locked Safely

In times like this, the chances of having intruders are high. It is already a matter of survival during a war. Furthermore, this is to avoid anonymous people from entering your home. The sole purpose of this is to provide additional safety despite the war happening. As they say, you can never feel as safe unless you are at home.

God forbid that a World War III will happen. No one wants that. However, if it does just always remember to stay focused, keep informed and be alert at all times.
