Civil unrest is more common than ever, so if you are under the assumption that civil unrest is something that doesn’t happen very often, then you’re simply not paying attention to what is going on in the world.
Civil unrest is very common place today – even if you live in a small town.
What Is Civil Unrest?
It is what happens when people get mad and decide that they are going to riot, protest or hold public demonstrations.
From Civil Unrest To Chaos
Chaoes always follows civil unrest regardless of how peaceful a protest was when it first started.
Anarchy raises its head and the norms of society break down.
The original intent of the protest is buried beneath the herd mentality that takes over when large groups of people become angry.
Authority is overthrown and the swell of those tearing down society norms is often too much for local authorities to deal with.
You can’t control – or sometimes even predict – how people are going to behave espeically when they are in large groups.
Be Prepared To Bug Out
When there is civil unrest, be prepared to bug out – or make it home safely – in a hurry.
Before civil unrest occurs in your area, set your family down and discuss survival planning.
Make up several escape plans that include a way to get from work or school to your home, a way to get away from local places you frequent and a way to get away from your home should the need arise.
When Civil Unrest Gets Out Of Hand
In the middle of all the chaos, people get injured or killed, so the goal is to put some distance between you, your family and the situation as fast as possible.
Make sure you plan a route that can’t – or won’t – be blocked by swarms of people.
When people swarm, injuries happen.
Don’t let yourself become vulnerable.
Avoid Burning Buildings
In civil unrest, people often burn buildings.
Don’t get stuck in a building that can be targeted.
If you are in a relatively safe place and can’t leave, make sure you secure the place where you’re at.
Those who are causing unrest are looking for targets – and it won’t matter to them if those are people, pets, vehicles or buildings.
They want to loot and attack.
What Looters Typically Steal
When there is chaos, stores are looted and supplies are taken.
The top three supplies that are stolen during civil unrest are alcohol, drugs and cigarettes.
These items always get taken first.
Following that, baby supplies are stolen, then food.
How To Keep Your Place Safe
The first step is to thwart impending attacks by making your place a deterrent.
Don’t have any easy access points.
Make sure you have a supply of food and other necessities on hand before the fallout from the civil unrest hits your area.
Be sure you have a survival bag for each member of your family, that they know where it is and are ready to grab it and go.
Be Prepared To Defend Yourself
You want to make sure that you have a way to defend yourself.
When there is civil unrest, the police often can’t get to certain areas to help victims, so make sure you take steps to prevent becoming one.
