WASHINGTON — The world is growing more dangerous by the day.
There’s the North Korea nuclear threat, talk of a new war in the Middle East, terrorist threats against the U.S.
We’ve all seen the devastating effects of hurricanes. The earth is rumbling from earthquakes and tornadoes.
And, of course, there’s the ever-looming threat of a catastrophic EMP attack that fries the grid – resulting in massive starvation in the United States.
The truth is, you never know when disaster will strike. And when it does, you need to be prepared to go it alone: First responders may be overwhelmed, and it could be days, weeks or even months before help arrives. In a situation like that, you can’t count on your local grocery store to be open or to have anything on the shelves – if you can even make it to your grocery store, that is.
