In 1988, the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) created the Emergency Events Database EM-DAT, with support from the Belgian government and the World Health Organization. This database serves to rationalize decision making when it comes to preparing for a disaster, while providing an objective base when it comes to setting priorities and assessing vulnerabilities. During the week of January 4-10, 2016, the database recorded a cold wave in Poland, an earthquake in Bangladesh and India, a storm in California, a gas leak in California and wildfires in Yarloop, Australia. Humans must be prepared at all times for these and numerous other types of disaster, as humans can never know when they will hit, and — My Survival Forum can be of assistance with this preparation.
"My Survival Forum recently launched and covers a range of topics including disaster and emergency preparedness, primitive hunting and self sufficiency. Individuals concerned about what the future may hold need to visit this site to connect with others who share these concerns and exchange ideas on how to prepare for and handle any emergency. This forum is now the fastest growing survivalist community forum today," Daniel Branch, founder of the forum, announces.
Disasters come in many different forms, which can make it hard to prepare. For example, EM-DAT recorded floods, landslides, wildfires and an earthquake in different parts of the world for the week ending July 5, 2015. In addition, they also recorded a military plane crash, a collision between a truck and a bus, a shipwreck and a bus accident in various parts of the world. Preparing for all of these possibilities can leave a person stressed and ready to give up.
"When talking with others on the forum, individuals can learn more about the types of disasters they are most likely to face, based on where they live, and prepare for those emergency situations first. Then and only then can they move to preparing for emergencies that are less of a threat to them personally. For example, a person living in Los Angeles may need to prepare for blackouts during the summer months, but completely ignore preparations for a blizzard. In contrast, a person living in Maine should focus on surviving a winter storm that leaves them stranded for days or weeks, worrying less about blackouts due to power overloads," Branch continues.
The forum also discusses events that may leave a person in need of survival skills for the long term. Although many discount the threat of an electromagnetic pulse or EMP, Congress has been discussing the possibility of a disaster of this type, as the nation's power grid desperately needs to be updated. An EMP could leave large parts of the nation without power or basic resources for an extended period of time, and many wish to learn more about surviving in this type of situation. Others visit to learn more about becoming more self sufficient, talking about solar homes and other ways to live off the grid.
"Regardless of what a person wishes to find concerning self sufficiency, primitive hunting, disaster and emergency preparedness and more, the forum will be of help. It's a great way to connect with others who wish to learn the same things and share a similar mindset. Be sure to check it out today, as you can learn a great deal in a short period of time simply by visiting the site," Branch promises.
