Topic of the month will be a time of knowing your threats around you, what to do and how to respond. This is a today threat, not just during SHTF. What are your nuclear and chemical refinery threats (think wind...) How do you protect against? Are you prepared? How far do you need to get away from a refinery fire? How far is safe from a nuclear facility? How long to shelter in place? Basement, closed room? Are you prepared? Do you know where the nearest nuclear plant is to you? How close do you live/work near a nuclear plant, waste plant or hazardous material facility? What about pipelines? These are dangers that can harm us even in normal times. What materials are stored within 50 miles of your home? Like I mentioned above, think wind or with pipelines, what about your water supply. The picture posted was of a fire that took place in March at a facility in Texas. The fire went from one tank, two tanks then it was 8 tanks burning. The fire caused emissions of benzene and chemical spills into regional waterways, including Buffalo and Tucker bayous, and the Houston Ship Channel. Residents were told to shelter in place twice plus black ash was falling. Do you wear a mask even after officials say things are okay? What about your pets? If SHTF, stuff like this is going to happen. Imagine having a petrochemical plant burning in summer, sheltering in place due to toxic air…. Have you thought about what to do?
