Emergency Plan for Wars

Jul 2, 2008
When the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11 in New York, everyone first thought it was an accident. As the second plane hit, everyone knew it was something worse. There has not been a major conflict in over fifty years but it does not mean that people are safe. There are elements in the world that want to do harm and people have to be prepared for it.

There has not been any major terrorist strike since 9/11 in New York and the London bombings.
The intelligence communities of various nations have since managed to foil major attempts to create maximum damage through bombings and other terrorist attacks.

During the height of the cold war, governments of the United States,Britain and Russia made various programs to prepare its citizens for a nuclear holocaust. This included making bomb shelters hundreds of feet from the ground as well as teaching children to stay under the table in the event of an attack.

But can anything be done to prepare for the next world war? Preventing the next biggest conflict is difficult but not impossible. Thermonuclear is just one way an attack will be carried out but the use of chemical and biological weapons is a bigger threat.

Many people may perish but following some tips for war emergency preparation may ensure the person's survival.

1.Stock some food - People go to the supermarket each week to replenish the food that was consumed. It would not hurt to buy a few extra canned goods every so often because it will not spoil until it is opened.

2.Stock some water - Aside from food, having an amply supply of drinkable water will prevent dehydration. Plastic jugs can be purchased from the supermarket but if it is unsafe to go out, the people will have to get this from the faucet. It will be a good idea to add a purification tablet and boil this first to make sure it is safe to drink.

3.Have a first aid kit ready - Having a first aid kit is always useful to treat wounds. The individual should check that it is complete at all times because no one can tell when this will be needed.

4.Evacuation plan - If people have to evacuate, it will be a good idea to bring food, water, a few extra clothes, flashlight, compass, matches, candy and an identification card. Everything should be packed in a backpack so everyone can move quickly to the nearest evacuation center.

5.Disaster plan - The last tip for war emergency preparation is to be familiar with the disaster plans that have been made the federal government and city. Some states already have contingency plans in place. This has been announced in the Internet and on television and if this should happen, people should stay calm and slowly evacuate.

The tips mentioned are not only useful in the event of war but also when faced with a hurricane, an earthquake or any other natural calamity. This is because people who want to live through the crisis will do anything to see another day.
