For about a year, I have focused from time to time on Disaster Preparedness.  I've been ridiculed as a "Doom" junkie and the like, but here's some brutal facts: Had these people been wearing $8 Filter masks and $5 Goggles, they wouldn't be dead.

Volcanic ash grinded into their eyes every time they blinked, blinding them.  It entered their lungs, turning into mud with the moisture in the lungs, and suffocated them to death.  You can tell that because they survived the heat; there are no burns.  That means they literally CHOKED TO DEATH.

These are people JUST LIKE YOU . . . . and they're DEAD for want of a lousy filter mask they could have owned for a few dollars . . .

 

None of us knows when a disaster is about to strike. Maybe we get some warning, maybe not.

Earthquakes - NO WARNING. 

Volcanic eruptions -- maybe some warning, but maybe not. 

Tornadoes, Wildfires, Flooding . . . some warning. 

Terrorist attacks with chemical or biological weapons -- NO WARNING.

 

As a major disaster takes place, be it natural or man made - MINUTES count.  There's no time to go to a store to get what you need.  You have to have some preparations at your fingertips or you could end up like these people in Guatemala.

Once the disaster happens, you still have to have to have resources with you to survive: WATER, Food.

The situation may be such that you can't jump in the car and go to the store because the car is destroyed . . . .

or the roads are gone (Hawaii) . . .

or the stores are all gone. . . .

Or trucks can't even roll to make deliveries of food or fuel . . .

When the roads are impassable, and the electricity isn't coming back for awhile - like weeks in New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy or like MONTHS in Puerto Rico after its hurricane . . . there's nobody coming to help for quite awhile.  You have to be able to get-by and survive ON YOUR OWN.

Now, most of us don't live anywhere near a volcano, so you might think having a filter mask and goggles is not necessary.  Maybe.

But what if a truck on a local highway overturns while carrying dangerous chemicals?  What if a large fire breaks out filling your area with dense smoke?  What if Terrorists release chemicals or bio-weapons?  All THOSE things can take place pretty much anywhere!  Better have a filter mask and goggles for THOSE things!

FILTER MASKS

 

 ABOUT THE MASKS ABOVE: It is important that you have one WITH YOU or within immediate reach at all times.  For instance, having masks at home while you're at work is useless if an attack takes place while you're at work.  You need to have one in your desk or locker at work.  You should also have one in your car in case an attack takes place while you're traveling.  I have one for EACH of my family members both at home and in my family car, so if we're all together on an outing, and something takes place, we all have masks in the car.  Your finances will dictate how many masks you get, but these are things to really think about as you prep.

 

GOGGLES

While volcanic ash is a potential of limited applicability to most,  Chemical and Biological Weapons are not.

If Biological or Chemical Weapons are released, you want to protect your eyes.  With chemicals, eye protection is understood, but with BIOLOGICAL, most people do not realize they can walk through infectious particles, some of those particles get on our eyes and when we BLINK, the infection gets pushed into our tear ducts and we're infected!!!!!  So having waterproof goggles is essential for protection.

 

FOOD

Here are some sources of Emergency Food:

 

 

   

     

   

  

   

    

 

     

 WATER

 

 

GRAVITY WATER FILTERS 

Once your supply of stored water runs out, you're going to need more water, but NONE may be available via Municipal Water Supplies or stores. At that point, you will have to get water from nearby Lakes, Streams or Rivers, and that absolutely requires FILTERING before being consumed.  Here are some Gravity-fed water filters you can resort to when your emergency supplies run out:

 

Masks, Goggles, Food and Water are the absolute BARE ESSENTIALS to have at your fingertips.  Even having some such supplies with you at work in your desk, in a brief case, or the trunk of your car parked at the job.  If you don't, you - and possibly YOUR kids -- can end up like these kids who thought they were "safe" in their house in Guatemala two days ago:

All for lack of a filter mask and goggles.  What a damn shame . . . .

 

OTHER PREPS TO THINK ABOUT

 

EMERGENCY ELECTRICITY

Generators - To keep the refrigerator cold a couple hours a day, charge your devices and have a couple lights in the house.

 

Solar Power- Will keep some small devices charged, and one light on in the house

 

 Inverters- VERY LIMITED CAPABILITY

These turn your car battery in 120 volts AC.  Wattage is important, a typical refrigerator takes 1100 watts! Bear that in mind as you shop. . .

 

GASOLINE STORAGE

The are empty cans to store spare fuel for your Generator, car, truck, etc.

 

EMERGENCY HEAT

These need fuel to operate; usually Kerosene

 

Kerosene Storage for Heat

These empty containers to store Kerosene fuel are colored blue to distinguish Kerosene from Gasoline.

 

 COMMUNICATIONS

CB Radio for cars or home

 

 Mobile Antennas (One needed per car)

BASE STATION ANTENNAS - For home or Apt.

 

 

GMRS Walkie-Talkies - VERY LIMITED RANGE (Despite Ad Claims; usually less than 1 mile)

  

GUNS and AMMO (MULTIPLE SUPPLIERS)

 

 

FIRST-AID / EMT-TRAUMA KITS

    DEAR HAL,

    I AM HERE IN HILO HAWAII.


    I HAVE LIVED HERE SINCE 2001,

    AND I AM FROM KAILUA OAHU.

    I HAVE SEEN THE ATTITUDES OF ACTIVIST'S AND POLITICIANS

    CHANGE RADICALLY DUE TO THE VOLCANIC ERUPTION IN PUNA.

    I KNEW BY THE MEAN SPIRITED ACTIONS OF LOCAL PEOPLE,

    JUST BEFORE THIS TRAGEDY,

    THAT SOMETHING RADICAL WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

    IT WAS TIME.

    WHEN THE RICH PEOPLE CAME HERE AND GATED OFF THE KAPOHO TIDE POOLS FROM THE PUBLIC, THIS SET OF TRAGEDIES WAS IN ORDER.

    THE CHICK THAT SWINDLED GREEN LAKE FROM THE GAY GUY THOUGHT THAT SHE HAD IT ALL HERE IN HAWAII.

    NOW ITS TIME FOR HER TO GO BACK TO CHICAGO TO HER RICH MOTHER.

    PEOPLE LISTEN.

    THIS IS THE VOICE OF GOD SPEAKING TO THE WICKED.
    WHEN YOU SEE LIGHTNING COMING FROM AN ERUPTING VOLCANO, THAT IS METATRON. (MOST DO NOT UNDERSTAND)

    REPENT IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR THE REDEMPTION OF SIN.

    I LOVE YOU HAL.

    I WISH I HAD SOME EXTRA MONEY TO DONATE.

    THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

    GOD BLESS YOU HAL.

    MERRIE

    Mask wouldn't have saved them. It was the heat that killed them. But you know never let a tragedy go to waste when you need to link your amazon wears.

      That's a truly shitty thing to say. I do NOT earn money from Amazon sales. I am NOT the seller. I do NOT earn any money if folks buy the goods shown.

      I _may_ earn something from ad clicks, but I'm not certain about that with Amazon. I put these things here as a SERVICE to the public.

      I WILL, however, earn money from the Guns and Ammo as well as the Emergency Food ads IF someone BUYS. I am an affiliate of those companies and earn a small commission on ___sales___, but nothing on Ad clicks for those items.

      As to what killed those people, it was NOT the heat that killed the ones seen in the streets above; no burn indications. No melted skin, no burnt hair, no blistering. In the lowest photo, of the 6 kids in their bedroom, some of THEM have what __may__ be burn marks on their feet and such; but that could also be Lividity (pooling of blood). So the heat very well may have killed those children.

      But hey, let's not tell anyone a simple thing they may use to save their own lives because, God forbid, money might be made.

        You make money of the links and products being sold. This a common tactic for these alternative news sites. Normally i wouldn't care , I just never seen it so low to use dead bodies to make 1 percent.

        http://www.geography-site.co.uk/pages/physical/earth/volcanoes/pyroclastic%20flows.html

        Heat doesn't have to be so high to boil skin to destroy your lungs. Over all you can't see anything from these photos are they're covered in ash. These people died in seconds of being hit with hot poisonous gases and were covered with ash afterwards.

          So let him earn something for the time, money, resources that he puts in here- which you benefit off of. Why and How can some of these alt media sites continue if its just out of pocket? They cant. I know, I tried. Hal is paying to put it out s0 why cant readers contribute? Are readers entitled to just take from others for free? Unless I'm wrong, he's not some greedy, corrupt liar like Alex Jones who lives on a multimillion $ estate or televangelists shilling for another Lear jet

          Nature is a bitch and a hell of a salesman. Everyone from the top down, from the average joe to the fedareal government push preparedness before, during, and after any disaster which is why we have things like sales and national preparedness month and so on. Anyone or thing that preps (even in nature) does it from the perspective of lessons learned from the past and concerns for the future. Everyone who has preps to sell is gunna push this stuff and profit from it. It’s not only a genuine give a damn for others but also the great American capitalist society hard at work and thank god for it.

          If he makes a couple pennies or dollars off this is of no big concern. To not push prepping at a time like this and in a story like this would not just be foolish, but also almost irresponsible as well. There are all kinds of preparedness sales in a lot of places ahead of certain seasons and most of those preps probably never used. I don’t see people complaining about that. Seems like selective outrage to me

      Maybe the mask would have help if some were out of the direct path of the heat, maybe not. Either way it wouldn’t hurt their odds. Not to mention it’s a good thing to have not just for volcanoes. Any prepped worth their weight, practical or otherwise is gunna have them and use them during a volcanic eruption or any other disaster that might warrant them. My only issue is those trauma kits. If your not trained or don’t intend to be then you probably don’t want to use up space, energy, or money on one. Just stick with a good first aid kit, especially if you need to be on the move

    Well sadly to say,most people go through life with the false sense of security that bad things happen to other people,not them.This is a very sad situation where they were wrong.So sad for the children.

    Idk why, but seeing the kids dead has really upset me.

    The volcanic ash doesn't turn to mud, it's glass particulates that SHRED your alveoli and you drown to death in your own blood and lymph.

    I was trained to have my N95 mask changed every 20 mins to remain effective. My SCBA only had a 45 min tank, which in an ongoing MCI isn't really alot at all.

    The reason why the 9/11 EMS/Fire workers were left to die later, was because it became "too expensive" and "too hard" to maintain the supply of the respirators to maintain their safety, so they decided to allow them to get lethal exposures. How special. Remember that EPA lady? "It's safe to breathe."

    Why the hell did the Hawaiian national guard allow this to happen!? How is it possible to have not done a house to house search before helicopters couldn't fly?

    Unnerving thing is: I see this happening all over the US in the future...and kinda soon. Idk from what, but it's a wasteland...and it ain't from my playing and modding Fallout 4.

    I'm gonna try and walk this off, I'm livid and nauseated.

    Prepping is a good tool/hobby to have. It took hurricane Mathew in NC while we were on leave to finally get her to buy in on it. We were stuck without power and usable roads for almost a week. Hall, you got some good stuff up but I’d be cautious about pushing trams kits. If people don’t have training then they shouldn’t be messing with them. A good first aid kit will do for most situations. Most people that try to use a trauma kit without training would most likely do more harm than good. Otherwise, good stuff

    Joel 2:30 I will show wonders in Heaven AND ON THE EARTH: blood fire and pillars of smoke. Oh look, it says the same thing in Revelation 8:7-8. The pillars of smoke are volcanoes all erupting at once. The burning mountain in Revelation 8:8 is a volcano that will fall into the Mediterranean Sea turning it into blood. Which one? Vesuvius? Etna???
