In the event of a SHTF, nuclear attack, zombies on the wire, what are your plans?

Do you report ASAP to wherever you're supposed to report (assuming it's still there?)  Grab your EBR and head for the hills with the plan to come back when you know your family is safe?  Not come back?

It's been on my mind after reading several bug-out threads.

Also, do you stockpile med supplies at home?  (Or am I the only weird one on ARFCOM?)

Go to work. It's my duty, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.  It's not in my nature to run away.

Did any of those guys on 9/11 run for the hills?

Depends on the situation. On 9-11 I went to the building and tried to get a ride into NYC.


But in the case of an all out SHTF nukes going off everywhere probably dead in minutes situation, my family is going to come first.


So, in between those really depends

It would depend on the SHTF situation.

Agreed on what kind of SHTF depends on what I'm going to do.

SHTF (minor) Call parents and sister (screw brother in law), make sure they are alright and that they are prepared.  Grab firearms and go to work.

SHTF (major) grab parents and bunker up.

Depends. The capt and I both work in the field, but since he's the full-time guy, chances are I'd be home with the kidlets anyway. We wouldn't BOTH leave the kids. We have rough plans, but that's something we really need to hammer out in more detail. He's told me more than once that if it was bad, he'd expect me to take the kids, the supplies, and bug out. He would have to do what he needs to do, and then he'd meet up with us asap.





In a true TEOTWAWKI scenario, we'd both grab the fam and bug out.

Fuck the Medicaid Fuckers and take care of your own. It is one thing if it is a serious event like Mass Casualty Incident, but if it is a true SHTF scenario my family will have my attention.

It depends on the 'SHTF' often that kind of stuff is just another day at work for us, but the rest of the world thinks its SHTF.

My wife is my #1 priority in this world. I'm not heading to work unless I know she is safe.

Again depends on the situation.

If I am at risk, im getting out of dodge.

I dont have a family as Im still a kid.

911 type, Im getting into work and doing what I was made to do, and prob much much more.



And yes, I do stock med supplies as well.

Serious mass causality means I'm going to be there as that is my job duty with the state, but don't think for a second I won't be taking care of #1

This....
during the hurricanes of 2004.... Our families came and stayed at the station with us. Kept our mind focused on our jobs and task at hand instead of worrying about the welfare or our family

localized / regional SHTF scenario = going to work and doing my duty.



expanded regional / national / pan-continental EOTWAWKI scenario = PMAG cover being popped, EBR and family doing the bug-out dance to our beta site.

Dpends on if my family is able to handle it without me, and if it is worth my while (morally, legally, ethically, etc.) to go to work.

If the SHTF, I'll be far more likely to use my own discretion when it comes to the cabulance service we offer.

That pretty much sums it up for me too.

We have the largest inland refinery in the US just outside of town. In feb 2008 it blew up. My family and friends live within a few miles of it. My grand parents live within a 1/4 mile.
I went straight to work.

Though it would definitely depend on the situation.
