If you're a survivalist, a concerned parent, or just want to "be prepared" like it says in the Boy Scout motto, then get yourself over to prepare_or_die and start working on your food storage, car emergency kit, disaster preparedness, radio communications, fieldcraft and camping gear, neighborhood CERT, and more. Survival isn't something you want to wait in line for . . . even the government suggests you at least maintain a 72-hour emergency kit. You know some of the lessons of Katrina already -- don't be a refugee! Take responsibility for your own survival because the government sure won't do it!
