The Danger Is Real: When The Real SHTF happens a series of social and economic meltdown quickly follows like a chain reactionMark June 30, 2018 2 Comments
When a massive civil disorder happens, a series of social and economic meltdown quickly follows like a chain reaction. This causes even more riots, chaos, and hunger, pushing every sane human to think and act at their worst.
As of this time, almost twenty percent of the United States population use vouchers to purchase food despite the strong economy. Also, a huge percent of young, underpaid, and unemployed millennials got great reasons to feel angry about the “system”, which they keep on blaming. Such anger fuels violence and deep hatred. The discontented mob suggests that the United States is just a few radical words away from civil unrest.
Embassies, police stations, state offices, and even shopping malls, are likely to fall in the hands of revolutionists at the beginning of a civil war. In the coming weeks, individuals or groups of people will start raiding stores and other private properties to get food, water, medicine, and other things they can use to survive through the whole crisis.
Home makes one of the safest place to stay in the events of a civil disorder. But one day, intruders may come knocking at your door hoping they could steal some goods, take over your home or cause life-threatening troubles. In a civil war where laws does not seem to carry any weight and help from authorities does not seem reliable, the safety of the whole family is in your hands. Prepare for the looming crisis as early as now.
Avoid Places Where Civil Unrest May Start
Location plays a major role in keeping your family safe when a huge civil unrest breaks out. Rural places will receive the least devastating effect while the urban households stand in the line of fire. In the wake of a civil unrest, looters and intruders will likely target wealthy neighborhoods, gentrified subdivisions, and financial districts near large cities first. Possible early victims include those living in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, Denver’s Highlands, and Brooklyn.
Know the possible epicenters of a riot. Examples of disturbance-hungry places during a massive civil unrest include universities, college campuses, public libraries, historical buildings, and government establishments. Remember that these rioters will target symbols of power and wealth. They will ruin expensive cars, high-end restaurants, luxury hotels, and lavish condominiums.
As much as possible, preppers must maintain a low profile. Do not give other people the impression that you belong to the upper class. Avoid wearing expensive clothes, avoid living in high-end villages, avoid eating in fancy restaurants, and avoid driving luxury cars. When you hear reports from a media coverage that a civil unrest breaks out, get out of the city and move somewhere else with your family. Consider moving in your parents’ or relatives’ house in rural areas and start barricading the place.

Modify The Fences
Most civil disorders happen in small areas, and if you stay out of it, you will be safe. But if the civil unrest grows bigger that it expanded up to your area, you may need to fortify the defenses of your home.
If your gate appears solid enough, invaders may climb your fences to get through. Those who own house with fences can start doing some work at the perimeter of their property.
Why Add Fences?
Many strategic reasons exist as to why you should surround your property with a fence. They include:
Fences serve as a mental barrier. Some burglars will assume that it looks more difficult to invade your house if protected by a fence.
It lessens the chance of escape. Thinking that they can’t escape easily as they don’t know everything inside the property, looters will likely target a different house.
Fences can deal damage and death to invaders. If they don’t take utmost care while penetrating your lawn, they will fall victim to the worst disadvantage fences can offer.
Fences, even those that appear short and made of wood already serves as a hurdle. This line of defense may add boost to your security. But if you feel like you need to upgrade your fencing, if you still got the time, we recommend some great fences for your home defense.
A Fence Hard To Climb Over
Metal security fences do a great job in preventing invaders. Wire mesh security fences also serve its purpose. Pick a top with spikes or pointed metal to impale invaders while rushing their way up.
A Fence Hard To Bypass
Make sure to install the fence deep in the ground with concrete. The gate should also match the strength of your fences. Moreover, pick a kind of material that won’t get cut easily by bolt cutters.
Invest On Solid Doors, Windows And Walls
Bad wolves can easily blow down a house built with straws and wood. Also, such walls can’t protect your family from stray bullets. The windows need fortification as well. Before a civil unrest happens, upgrade to concrete walls, a sturdier doors, and highly secured windows.
As most concrete and brick walls seem hard to penetrate, you can focus on door and window security. You can choose on many different ways to burglar-proof your doors and windows.
Solid Door Security
All doors in your house should be kick-proof. A group of organized invaders can bring it down, but your door should at least buy some time to let the kids go to a safe room and for you to get your guns.
Use solid wood or a solid wood core. Fiberglass makes a great choice as well. If you choose a metal door invest on one with interior reinforcement and lock block. This prevent thieves from bending it open with a crowbar or a car jack.
You can also trust your life with reinforced steel doors. However, you need to spend a lot of time and money to prevent it from rusting.
Fortify Your Windows
Windows invite a lot of bad elements including home invaders. As such, you should not forget blocking this vulnerable part of your home in case of a civil war. However, patching your windows with wood or using your furniture to cover the entry won’t do any help. When the economy stumbles down, desperate people will do their best to compromise a weak defense and steal what they want.
First, you may consider a windowless home. When the worst case scenario hits the country, some old folks would barricade their home’s point of entry by replacing their windows with bricks and cement. This serves as a quick home defense operation.
While reinforced glass will give you enough time to prepare for an intruder, steel bars will add further security. You may also need to do the same on your second floor windows. Just make sure to leave an escape route in case of fire.
Keep Firearms And Other Weapons Ready
Laws for firearms vary from state to state. Research about state laws and see if you can use guns to defend yourself in case of an invasion. Apart from guns, there are plenty of other tactical weapons you can make use for self-defense.

A Fence Without A Hiding Place
Take note that if you strip off invaders with a place to hide, you get to do the same thing to yourself and your family. However, this will help detect the bad guys easily giving you enough time to pick the guns and tell your kids to hide somewhere safe.
A Few Add-Ons
Preppers should adding barbed wires at the top of the fences and in the landing spot. You can conceal them with concrete or bushes. Planting thorny plants behind the fences also boosts the defence. Both may injure the attackers before they can get close to your home. Also, try installing lighting and night vision CCTV cameras at your front yard.
Shotguns may cause a surefire kill. However, it takes time to reload and it may injure your shoulders due to the recoil. Meanwhile, you can easily fire handguns, and most of them carry a decent amount of bullets in a magazine.
Choose lightweight handguns you can easily hide in a safe place. Consider buying a handgun silencer to not attract other outsiders.
Equip each family member with a handy knife so that they can defend themselves if the situation begs for it. Apart from self-defense, such knives serve different purposes such as a tool for preparing food, cutting some objects, and more.
When it all goes down to a close combat, this survivalist knife can pretty much save your life. You can hide it in your pocket or in a secret holster and use the element of surprise to gain advantage over your attacker.
Set Up Traps
A prepper must play dirty if he needs to. After all, the safety of your family depends on the home defense tactics you implement. If you don’t feel confident about decoys and firing a gun, use your wife or kids’ craftiness and ask them to help you out with setting traps.
As mentioned above, these spiked wars work effectively if strategically placed in different areas of your property such as behind walls. You can also lay this trap near the trees where invaders can’t see them.
Bed Of Nails And Tire Spikes
When laying traps, make sure that invaders won’t notice them. You can place these bed of nails if the most unsuspecting places of your lawn and house.
Keep Fire Extinguishers
Getting their house burned down makes one of the biggest worries of homeowners when a civil disorder breaks out. If you decide to defend your home, always keep fire extinguishers in different parts of the household. Make sure they work and that you instructed everyone on how to use it.
If you don’t want to get to the point of grabbing the fire extinguishers, clean up the house and hide flammable materials away. Also, transfer materials that can easily catch fire to somewhere isolated.
Safe Room – The Ultimate Home Defense
If you can’t afford a bunker, a safe room will do just fine. Somewhere in your home, choose an ideal area to set it up.
Disguise plays a huge factor to a successful safe room as it serves as one of your family’s last resort. You can hide the safe room in your library behind the bookshelves, in the basement with the passage concealed by a carpet, or in the master’s bedroom at the back of the closet. Vast mirrors, portraits, wallpapers and wall decors can perfectly obscure your safe room.
Safe Room Must-Haves:
- A blast-proof, kick-proof, and sound proof door with double deadbolts.
- A phone and charger you can use to contact others for help.
- Emergency food, canned goods, and other food packages that will last for over a month.
- A secret passage to escape in case of detection or fire.
- A tactical flashlight, a firearm, and other self-defense weapons in case the intruders found the hidden safe room.
- Proper ventilation and lighting
- First aid kit and medicine
- Clothes, towels, and blankets
- Computer where you can monitor the rest of the house through hidden CCTV cameras.A safe room does not need to be fancy. But for your family’s comfort during a civil unrest, you can start building it little by little.
