Austin,Texas DHS plan worth studying
Austin, Texas developed a plan that addresses the deep freeze and lose of much infrastructure.
Austin’s DHS and a consultant (Why the need for a consulting firm ?!) made some recommendations well worth studying.
Note “no crew members … knew how to operate a gear switch”. Before a prepper buys anything, do think of the required support system: basic field expedient repairs (even if used at home and not in field), spare parts (consider the spares as “merely” a cost of the main gadget, eg generator, being purchased) and tools/lubercants/related.
Under section titled “Shelters”, note “staffing shortfalls and availability of volunteers”. I’m posting this link not to single out and focus on Austin, Texas … it’s about the same here for private citizens …
Note recommendation: “identity a list of medical shelters and general shelters with durable infrastructure”.
All wheel drive emergency vehicles are far from being economical for year-round use. This specific subject is really a “it takes a village”.
Where do the Austin, Texas taxes go to ? Please be reminded by me this this link if from “governing.org” !
Does not * Hagerty Consulting* firm serve as a huge flare indicating the problem ?!
Would never have guessed roads could become useless without support.
