June 13, 2014 - "Make Char Cloth” by Graywolf. These instructions will tell you how to make char cloth which will aid you in fire starting the primitive way. Click here

June 13, 2016 - "Make DIY Fire-Starting Wafers with a Candle and Cotton Pads" By Alan Henry. We've shown you how to make char cloth so you'll always be able to start a fire in an emergency, but char cloth is dangerous to keep and transport. These cotton fire-starting wafers are much easier to make, safer to stash in an emergency kit or go bag and all you need to make them is a candle and some cosmetic cotton pads from your local drug store or pharmacy. Click here

June 12, 2016 - "Blackout Curtains Purpose and Application of Blackout Curtains" By Centurion. What are Blackout Curtains? Blackout curtains are specially designed and constructed to block out 99.9% of the sun's light and up to 100% of UV rays. However, they typically work to block both incoming and outgoing light. If you install blackout curtains, you can have more confidence that the light inside your house will not be seen outside if you wish your house to look private, dark or even unoccupied. Click here

June 12, 2016 - "Cheap Security Options" By Ragnar. One of the top concerns people have about their homes, homesteads, and BOLS is security. There are the obvious systems that people consider including; CCTV, alarms, dogs, fences, firearms, and motion sensors. Being in the security field I am big proponent of all of these options; however, these options are not always sensible to put in or affordable. Often times, like all of our preparations, security has to be built over years. Here are some very affordable options that you can start with today that will not break your bank. Click here

June 11, 2016 -"Summer Temperatures Are Here" Record high temperatures, some rising up into triple digits, are arriving in much of the country this week, prompting warnings and reminders on how to stay safe. Click here

June 3, 2016 - "13 Ways to use a Tampon in an Emergency Survival Situation" By Bob Rodgers. When you have to face a crisis, everything around you can become a useful tool. Even a tampon can be used in various improvised ways if the need requires it. There are many methods you could benefit from, if you follow these advices. With an open mind and the right knowledge a tampon could save your life. Click here

May 30, 2016 - "How to choose the best tactical boot for your bug out?" by Todd Sepulveda. Take a good look at your feet right now… Now imagine darting through metropolitan labyrinth followed by a slow, long hike to your bug out shelter. We’re talking urban concrete, rugged rocky terrains, rural flatlands, maybe a swamp… Click here

May 28, 2016 - "What you need to know about kids and hot cars this summer" By Taylor Yakowenko. The temperatures are heating up as summer rolls in and something important to keep in mind is to never leave your child in a car unsupervised. We spoke with Jan Null, a Certified Consulting and Research Meteorologist at San Jose State University about what you need to know about kids and hot vehicles this season. Click here

May 28, 2015 - "Preparing for Memorial Day Travel" Once again we have the Memorial Day Weekend quickly approaching. I can already taste the hot dogs, BBQ chicken, potato and macaroni salads as well as all the associated trimmings.Click here

May 21, 2016 - "My thanks to those who serve."

May 21, 2016 - "Have You Practiced Stranger Danger Skills with Your Children?" I’ve been a foster parent for going on three years. One of the hardest things about being a foster parent is the uncertainty of what your foster child will face when the courts approve their reunification with their family. Will they end up back on the streets? Will they be constantly exposed to strangers? Will their family keep them safe? Click here

May 21, 2016 - "Complete your written hurricane plan” Here we are folks at the last day of the Hurricane Preparedness Week program. It is now time to prepare for a hurricane before the season begins, when you have the time and are not under pressure. If you wait until a hurricane is on your doorstep, the odds are that you will be under duress and will make the wrong decisions. Take the time now to write down your hurricane plan. Know where you will ride out the storm and get your supplies now. You don’t want to be standing in long lines when a hurricane warning is issued. Those supplies that you need will probably be sold out by the time you reach the front of the line. Being prepared, before a hurricane threatens, makes you resilient to the hurricane impacts of wind and water. It will mean the difference between your being a hurricane victim and a hurricane survivor. I have enclosed several links to help you get your program in first gear.

May 20, 2016 - “Identify your trusted sources of information for a hurricane event” For Friday’s preparedness hint we would like to present some information on how to identify trusted sources of weather information. NOAA's National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center are your official sources for hurricane forecasts and the issuance of hurricane watches and warnings. Your local NOAA National Weather Service forecast office provides information regarding the expected impacts from the storm for your area. Emergency managers will make the decisions regarding evacuations as necessary. Organizations such as FLASH make disaster safety recommendations. And the media outlets will broadcast this information to you. All work together to be your trusted sources, especially for those less able to take care of themselves. I have listed several links to assist you in reaching reliable sources of information.

May 20, 2016 - "Making Dijon Mustard" By Keith Snow. Here is a simple recipe for making Dijon Mustard. This is very inexpensive and makes more then you might think. Try to find organic mustard seeds, most come from Western Canada….even the seeds used in France! Click here

May 20, 2016 - "An $89 backup generator" By Jeff Yago While I strive in all of my articles to only recommend products of high quality and reliability, I realize many of us are on a fixed-income or have limited budgets for emergency preparation. When it comes to backup generators, I own several larger ones. Click here

May 19, 2016 - How to Make Gunpowder the Old Fashioned Way” By Joshua Krause. It’s one thing to prep for the next hurricane or tornado or economic calamity. There are a lot of really basic skills and supplies that will get you through those situations and pretty much anyone can acquire them. But the scenarios that are truly difficult to prepare for are the ones that involve the total collapse of our society for any given period of time. That’s because surviving those scenarios requires you as an individual, to pick up the slack of everyone else in society. Click here

May 19, 2016 - "What You Need to Know About Zippos and Lighter Fuel" In a show of hands, how many of you have at least two dozen lighters set aside for survival use? My guess is at least 50% of you have a a couple of dozen and most likely 10% have 100 or more. Click here

May 19, 2016 - “Strengthen your home” For today’s hurricane preparedness topic we will cover your home and how to strengthen t. If you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in good repair and up to local hurricane building code specifications. Many of these retrofits do not cost much or take as long to do as you may think. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels to board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is the most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to withstand the winds. Below are some links to help you get started on this task:

May 18, 2016 - "How to Survive without Water” Stuck in the wilderness with nary a drop of water in your canteen? Don’t worry. You can survive this situation and live to tell an incredibly interesting tale. Click here.

May 18, 2016 - "Assemble Disaster Supplies” It is now Wednesday of our hurricane preparedness week and you are going to need supplies not just to get through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family a minimum of one week. Electricity and water could be out for at least that long. You’ll need extra cash, a battery-powered radio and flashlights. Many of us have cell phones, and they all run on batteries. You’re going to need a portable, crank or solar powered USB charger. Below are  a couple of links to information which may be of use to you as you gather your supplies up.

May 17, 2016 - "James Bond Tips for Where to Sit In Restaurants" By Jason Hanson. Today, I’m going to give you some “James Bond” tips of where to sit in a restaurant. I realize that all of these won’t apply to you, but you never know when or how this knowledge will come in handy. Click here

May 17, 2016 – “Secure an insurance check-up” As we continue completing our hurricane preparedness week reviews we suggest that you call your insurance company or agent and ask for an insurance check-up to make sure you have enough homeowners insurance to repair or even replace your home. Don’t forget coverage for your car or boat. Remember, standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding. Whether you’re a homeowner or renter, you’ll need a separate policy for it, and it’s available through your company, agent or the National Flood Insurance Program at Act now as flood insurance requires a 30-day waiting period. Included below are two links that may be of use to you.

May 16, 2016 - "How to Make a Shotgun Grenade" By Runik. In this article we’ll be learning how to make shotgun grenades using unconventional methodology. If you have no experience in munitions and explosives we suggest you become thoroughly familiar with the subject before taking a crack at this guide. Shotgun grenades’ usefulness to preppers and survival groups is contingent upon the situation, and should only be used to gain the tactical advantage. Click here

May 16, 2016 - "National Hurricane Center: Live Broadcast" This special webinar is intended for young students and will take place on May 17 at 11am EDT. A free webinar on hurricanes will be offered to grades 4, 5, and 6 on May 17 at 11 a.m. EDT (10 a.m. CDT).

Classroom questions will be collected in advance of the webinar and questions will also be answered during the webinar. The webinar will be presented by the Hurricanes: Science and Society team at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography in partnership with the NOAA National Hurricane Center and the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center. The purpose of the Hurricane Webinars is to raise awareness about hurricanes in advance of the 2016 North Atlantic hurricane season. Register Here

May 16, 2016 - "Develop an evacuation plan" For today's Hurricane prepping topic we will talk about developing an evacuation plan. The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you’re in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you’d go and how you’d get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn’t live in a zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about.  Here are a few links to help you out.

May 15, 2016 - "Determine your risk" As part of the Hurricane week information we will start with determining your risk. Find out today what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live, and then start preparing now for how to handle them. Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem. Their impacts can be felt hundreds of miles inland. It’s easy to forget what a hurricane is capable of doing. The U.S. has not been directly impacted by a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) in more than a decade. However, hurricanes such as Ike, Sandy and Isaac reminded us that significant impacts can occur without it being a major hurricane. Many people are suffering from hurricane amnesia in the forms of complacency, denial and inexperience. This remarkable hurricane streak is going to end, and we have to be ready for it to happen this season. Here are several links to get you started.

May 15, 2016 - "Hurricane Preparedness Week" May 15, 2016 to May 21, 2016. It only takes one storm to change your life and community. Tropical cyclones are among nature's most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to tropical cyclones, you need to be prepared. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms. The National Hurricane Center and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center issue watches, warnings, forecasts, and analyses of hazardous tropical weather. Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 15-21, 2016) is your time to prepare for a potential land-falling tropical storm or hurricane. Learn how with the daily tips provided and the related links. Share these with your friends and family to ensure that they're prepared.

May 1, 2015 - "How to Survive Without Toilet Paper" By Snowma. Your survival plan should include a huge stock of toilet paper. Nonetheless, if you were faced with a long term situation in which the stock was used up, it would be good to know about toilet paper substitutes. Click here
