Episode-1127- Risk Assessments and Readiness Audits
Summary: TweetTime to take a real hard look at where you are, where you are going and whether or not progress is being made in your quest to be more self reliant and more self sufficient. Today we begin with a review of my concepts of the inverse relationship between impact scale and disaster probability. We then go into a look at assessing your most likely personal risk factors and your individual risk tolerance. From there we examine quite a few potential disasters and how they might effect you, how you would respond to them, where your are really shored up and where you are weak. We discuss what can be done to plug the holes in your preparedness and how to prioritize what areas you address first. Join Me Today As We Discuss… What is disaster probability What is disaster impact scale Why do impact and probability have inverse relationships What does that even matter Why focusing on the mega disasters gets you hurt by the “little” ones Considering your 6 primary needs for survival Food Water Shelter Energy Security Health and Sanitation Questions to Ask How would we and how long could we feed ourselves How would this effect our shelter (house) What would we do for clean and safe water What health risks would this cause if any How long would “recovery” likely take What specific regional issues exist How would existing health issues effect this disaster Would help be available, how long would it take to come What security risks might pop up beyond the normal How would we care for pets What would the impact be on our children (mental and phyical) How do we think we would respond mentally What phyical injuries might be incurred during the onset How would we get out if we were forced to leave How would we get along if forced to stay Several Disasters You Might Face with Thoughts About Them Loss of employment Local storms A house fire Death of a family member or serious illness of the same Economic recession (more severe then 2008) Economic collapse and shift Flu or other pandemic Nuclear power accidents Any true global disaster with long term total system failure Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Mint TSP Gear WalkingToFreedom Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
