I guess we should teach our children that no matter where they are they should call their local power company. I am assuming they have access to a cell phone. The prerequisite would be phone protocol. Now we can have that number in their cells. If the cell phones don't work, you can deduct might be EMP or grid gone. better...1) When the power fails, call power company. If no cell phone connection go to step 2. [/quote] Phone the power company. Get real. Garbage bags for fallout...? Get real. Stupid silly waste of time. Garbage bags are good for rain. Thats it. Better get a little bit more realistic about everything. If your family thinks your crazy maybe thats because of your sorry crack pot ideas. Bikes. Bags. Communication. Maps. Plans. Kid are a little bit more resourceful than your giving them credit for. Staying in place at school only works for a while. Then What...? Solar flare the buses aren't running. If your plans call for in any way things to be partially operational your all done. Start with the worst case senario and then work down. Start with nothing. Then ask yourself how are your kids getting Somwhere without you...? If your plan completely relys on your getting to them and you can't then what...? OK...you give me your plan. I am sure it is much better than mine. I am just trying to bring things to light. I do know that plastic is a great protection for dust and radiation particles for a temporary time period. It is definitely better than nothing. Get real. Get real or suffer the consequences. [/quote] [/quote]
Let's assume our children are away from our home. Do they know what to do if all power fails?
1) When power fails, always locate a grownup.
2) When power is out for more than 30 minutes find a parent.
3) If power is out for more than 2 hours get home.
4) Follow family plan if you have to walk home (know directions)
5) If parents not home when you get there, follow family plan until parents arrive.
