What Will You Do In The First 60 Minutes Of A Sudden SHTF? The Hardest Part Is Not Fleeing But Thinking, Planning, And Acting
Many people are convinced that civilization as we know it will collapse or, at best, experience a prolonged interruption. Very few of those people are actually planning for it and even less are preparing for it in advance. For those of us actually preparing we have forums, books, videos, and meetings to help us get ready for SHTF.

A few are even likely hoping for it for various reasons. What if this collapse occurs in a matter of minutes as well it might in various SHTF scenarios; nuclear war, terrorism, EMP, pandemic, conventional war, civil unrest becoming civil war? I am sure you can add a few to this list. Using the Golden Hour concept from trauma medicine I am proposing a few unusual ways of handling the first hour of SHTF.

In this Golden Hour things you do and do not do will have a profound effect on your chances of a decent survival outcome. The Golden Hour is getting a major trauma victim to a trauma center within an hour. Survival rates plummet by minute 61. What will you do in the first 60 minutes of a sudden SHTF? I expect disagreement and hope the comments will give me some good ideas.

SHTF Happens and you are at Home
Reacting rather than data gathering is the key to all of these situations. As humans used to experiencing normal conditions the sudden ending of the normal is a shock and many react to it by standing still and trying to find out what is going on. The lights go out, you check your phone, you look out the window, and you try to find your battery radio and the flashlights. You are in bed and the loud bang shakes the house violently and the power goes out. You use your phone, you turn on the TV, and you go outside to find out what is going on. You might even go through these actions several times!

You need to find out as much information as you can about the event. What if it's just a regional power outage? You mean to tell me that you are going to pack all your SHTF stuff just for that? Information is key. If you wake up in the middle of the night and there is no power but all your devices work and have cell tower connection- good sign. But if everything is dead and even your car won't start- very bad. Possible EMP. So the steps you take will depend on what you find out initially. For a regional blackout I would pack all my stuff and be ready to deploy but wait until I receive more information. EMP - I'm outta there like in an hour or two and headed to a predetermined location on foot or pedal power.
