Make sure if you submit content for a feedback show that you put something like “comment for jack”, “question for jack” or “article for jack” in the subject line to assure proper identification for my screening process.

Please understand I receive several hundred emails a day and can’t get them all on the air.

I also do put out a lot of information on Facebook from emails that I can’t fit on the program though so keep em coming.

This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

You are in a public building and someone starts shooting at people randomly.  This is a public building that does not allow concealed carry and you have followed the law.  How do you assess the threat, attempt to survive and help others (if you can) in this situation.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Your home has been destroyed by fire. Luckily no one was killed or even severely injured. Most anything of value in your home is ruined and/or gone. You are left with the clothes on your back, what you keep in your vehicles and any items that are in a DETACHED structure only. Describe now how you begin to put the pieces back together, how you deal with insurance, etc. If you keep documents, money, etc in a firebox or firesafe you can assume those survived.

Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon. Also please enter our listener appreciation contest and help spread the word about our show. Also remember you can call in your questions and comments to 866-65-THINK (866-658-4465) and you might hear yourself on the air.

Also remember we have an expert council you can address your calls to. If you do this you should email me right after your call at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with expert council call in the subject line. In the body of your email tell me that you just called in a question for the council and what number you called in from. I will then give the call priority when I screen calls.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

This one is strait from my interview with Masaad Ayoob if you remember it. Whether you do or do not put yourself into this scenario. A man attempts to break into you home and manages to do so. You hear the commotion and pick up your gun. You find the man in your home, you order him the ground but he comes at you, you shoot him, he is down dying in a pool of blood. For what ever reason you are alone in your home, no other witnesses. You now must dial 911, how do you handle everything from this point forward.

This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Riots have erupted in your area, similar to the Ferguson riots.   The cause is not really relevant so we will leave it out.  The key is that these riots are not likely to spread to your house BUT you and your spouse (if you have one) work near the area where they are occurring.  Additionally you have some concern over the location of your children’s school.   What are your procedures and protocols for travel, when to stay home and how to deal with potential spread of the danger.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Look at Buffalo New York and the surrounding areas right now. First they were hit with about 8 feet of snow. Now as the melt comes flooding is probable. During this event no help could be sent in. Frankly the melt might be a disaster unto itself but it is also a blessing. With 8 feet of snow there really isn’t many places to push it out of the way to. In such an event you will likely be stuck inside your home for at least a week, if power goes out cold weather is a big problem. Regardless of where you live how would you personally prepare for such an event?

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

A storm hits your neighborhood hard, you are without power for at least a week. There is a lot of damage to the neighborhood but you got off pretty easy, your house is still sound, any real damage is superficial. Others didn’t get off so easy, a close neighbor is among them. Their house has literally be destroyed and isn’t safe to live in. They are basically homeless and have no where to go.

You want to help them by offering them a bed and a room which you have, at the same time you don’t want them as house guests for the long haul. How long do you let them stay and how do you start off the arrangement so that there is a clear time limit for them to figure out what to do next? How do you do this while being sensitive to how traumatic the current situation is for them?

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

A series of events has caused a food shortage. Food is available but many things are hard to come by and what is available is priced 2-3 times as high as current prices. A series of events has resulted in this. A bad crop year around the globe from multiple weather events and new pests/crop diseases. Compounding it has been an over reactive scare due to a potential Ebola pandemic, which has also damaged the economy. Prices are expected to remain high for at least a year. America is getting off easy in many third world nations food riots are now erupting. What do you during this period? How do you stretch your food budget? How much do you rely on your stored food? Of course the cost of animal feeds has at least doubled as well, so factor that into your plans.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

An ice storm hits your area. There is no electricity and won’t be for weeks. Movement is all but impossible, even with chains most roads are blocked by multiple downed trees. Forecast is for bitterly cold weather for the next week or so, highs below freezing. Power companies say power will be out for up to three weeks for some customers, in this case that includes you. It will be at least a week before you can get out and about.
