I'm taking this seriously and for that reason we need to lighten the mood a bit.

I have an unusual hobby that will come in handy. I build and modify first aid kits.

I have gone over this thread again. As I have said, "I don't believe WW III will throw the entire civilization back to the Stone Age. A worst-case scenario I foresee is certain places would be uninhabitable."

As I have said in other threads, the most I can realistically prepare for is three months. If the distribution system cannot be reestablished within that time, we may nave to leave the country. I'm on some much-needed medications. Therefore I can't live off the land. As crazy as it may sound now, when that storm blows through, the safest place to be is in the eye of the storm . . . Israel.

I respect you for trying to prepare and for also looking after your mother. I do think that the people at your Synagogue might be of some real assistance in a true emergency. The most important thing that we never talk about on this forum - the value of having a support network of people around you.

I would have to think that Florida has some type of emergency plan to set up makeshift hospitals - in the event of a major emergency. That information could be very important. You might want to ask your local authorities what they know about this.

Doctors can be frustrating - they often prescribe only small amounts of meds. If you have a critical need for a certain medication, you really need a supply for 6 months ... or maybe a year. I can't tell you how to go about getting this ... but I think it would be a tremendously helpful if you did.

Take a look at other threads on this web site. there is excellent advice about food for your pantry) that lasts for months. Take a look at British "fruit cake" - that stuff lasts for months and months. It was mailed to British troops in Europe during the world wars. I also recommend you stockpile some concentrated lemon juice ... not frozen. The stuff on the shelves of the supermarket. When the human body goes for a long time with limited food - you start craving fresh fruit. A little lemon juice is a lifesaver.

I will avoid all political comments. But after seeing the crisis that is starting to engulf Saudi Arabia and Iran tonight (al-Nimr execution), it is not hard to imagine a lot more bloodshed in the Middle East in 2016. A major crisis there, and a global economic downturn - these are very plausible possibilities.

Good luck!!!

Florida had arguably the best Emergency Management Director when Craig Fugate was here...much of the post Katrina reorganization of FEMA is based on the lessons learned from Andrew and the 2004/2005 hurricane season

I knew going into a discussion on WW III that information is constantly being updated. This is not completely new information since what I heard earlier seems to confirm what I'm hearing now: Florida is one of the places to be attacked.

The good news is I have the doll I've always wanted. She's now apart of my collection. I can now leave this world with no regrets.

Edit: Mom explained why the earlier information does not confirm what I'm hearing now. She made a valid point and I agree.

As most ETS readers are (or should be) aware, Fugate has moved on to become head of FEMA. By most accounts he has made some major, very positive changes in that agency.

For an interesting profile of Fugate, published shortly after he was appointed see In Case of Emergency. For a more recent interview with Fugate, where he outlines his ideas of getting individuals, the private sector, and communities involved in disaster response see We Are All First Responders.

Thank you for those references. I must say that his philosophy is on the right track.

It's good we have someone like him as the head of FEMA; in the event of WW III we may not be able to count on the government because it is so overwhelmed.

Society has changed a lot since WW II. The government may be so overwhelmed because it is trying to keep order that it may not be able to help those in need.
