First Five Things To Do If/When The Lights Go Out byfor Modern Survival Blog
What First Five Things will ‘YOU’ do If/When?
Hypothetical “Lights Out” Scenario
K; let’s set up a hypothetical scenario.
You are at home or at the BOL (bug out location) and suddenly, oddly, it seems quiet. Very quiet. Too quiet. No noise around at all, except for Nature Sounds.
The ceiling fans are winding down. The TV / Radio is quiet. Even the refrigerator is noiseless.
What lights you may have had on are now dark.
What are the very first Five Things you would do? (I will list mine at the end of Article).
Assuming there was no bright flash of light and the walls did not blow apart and melt the floor.
Also assuming you had zero pre-warning such as news reporting of pandemic-warning, economic-crash, and so-on.
The reasoning for this Poll or Article is learning what others believe the first course of action would need to be.
Most of the populist seem to only listen to the “News” and the Internet to make decisions and how to react in a particular situation. OR maybe they would not even know ‘how’ to act or react ????
So, without knowing exactly what has happened, how would you determine what to do? And, in a simple order how would you “Plan” your direction?
What 5 Things To Do Next
Basically what ‘Five Things’ would you do now or next?
1st | Assessment
1. Make a quick assessment; check the Phone (does it work). Check the water faucet (is it still flowing normally). Look outside (do I see a fire or a Mushroom Cloud). Turn on a battery powered radio (does it work, is there ciaos or normal stuff). Try to start the car/truck (does it start/run)? Maybe even hit the HAM radio to see if there is anyone out there that actually knows for sure what has happened.
2nd | Going / Getting Home
2. Make sure the Family, aka Blue for me, is safe and at home. If so, make explicit instructions for what they should do next. If not at home, follow the plan for getting them home NOW!
