I always have prepping on my mind, it's just a way of life for me now. I think about the preps that I have and how to best use them and I think about what I don't have too. I try to evaluate my preps regularly to see what I am lacking. Today I found myself lacking in the airborne agent preps. Whether it be Bird Flu, Chemical Attack or just a Chemical Spill I need to be prepared for it. I'm not sitting here with my tinfoil hat on waiting for something to seep in through the windows or anything but you must still be aware that it is a REAL threat.
Since I had to go to town anyway (got a rebate check from the insurance co that I had to spend) I stopped by Lowes to see if they had a few items that would at least be considered by some to be a prep for that threat. Well, I came away with a 3X50 roll of plastic to cover my windows if need be. My thinking is that it may help keep unwanted pathogens out to some degree. I also got a package of 12 3M brand dust masks, the ones with the rubber band to hold them on your face. I know it's not much but if I need to go outside for something I can at least cover my mouth and nose to limit what I do breath in. I keep plenty of plastic garbage bags on hand anyway so no need to get more at this point in time. I'm thinking I can place a garbage bag over my chimney to keep out unwanted air and that may help some too. Covering all of my vents from the heat pump would also be necessary as well as the intake for the furnace.
I know it's not the ultimate in preps but it is SOMETHING. And I'm pretty sure that if nanny.gov tries to kill us all off with an airborne agent (not that they would ever think of that..haha!!) I would have something in place that would increase my chances of survival. Bird Flu is a very real threat too, so is a Chemical Spill or any other number of things. I don't have the cash for a gas mask set for each family member as of yet, working on that now.
Now, you know what I have. What's in your wallet?? I mean preps? Are any of you concerned with this threat too or am I just thinking too much again here? I know the threat is real and now my preps are real too. I know I need a lot more but at least it's a start. I would love to hear any suggestions and or advice on what else I can do. Drop me a note in the comment section, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
This is Bullseye...OUT !!!
