    What Does It Mean to “Shelter in Place”?

    Be prepared for staying put

As you work on you emergency preparedness it is important to understand the new vocabulary. Terms that you hear quite a bit are “Shelter in Place” and “Grab and Go." It is important to make sure you have emergency supplies that allow you to do both.

Depending on the disaster and depending on the circumstances surrounding the disaster you may need to “Shelter in Place” or you may need to evacuate or “Grab and Go."

The term "sheltering in place" became very popular following 9/11. There was a lot of talk at that time regarding the possibility of a chemical or biological terrorist attack that would make it necessary for you to stay put, usually in your home. It's similar to when families hunker down in preparation for a hurricane or approaching storm.

The basic premise of sheltering in place is that if it is unsafe to leave your residence you will need to stay put and find everything you need to survive where you are. Hopefully, you will shelter in place at your home, but it might be that you have to shelter in place at your place of work, at school or at some other location.

Following a disaster, if it is safe to stay in your home, that is ideal. Whether you know it or not, you will have many emergency supplies at your disposal that will help you survive. The most important part of staying in your home is that it provides excellent shelter to keep you out of the elements. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can build up your shelter-in-place supplies that will allow you to survive after a disaster.

You will want to have supplies for at least the first 72 hours. It's recommended that you have a shelter in place kit for at least two weeks or longer if you can afford it. Here are some items to have in your “Shelter in Place” supplies:

Water

Store water in barrels or 5 gallon containers. Make sure you use a Water Preserver to extend the storage life of the water.
Water filter. Having either a micro water filter or a more robust system will allow you to clean suspect water that you will get at your residence.

Food

• Use the food that will spoil first, then use the supplies in your pantry.
• Have long term food storage, such as freeze-dried food along with enough water to reconstitute.
• Store a wide variety of food in case you need to shelter in place for a long period of time.

Fuel & Generators

• You may have to shelter in place without any electricity or heat. Make sure you have a portable stove that will allow you to cook your food.
• Storing some wood at your house to make a fire if needed is a good idea. Make sure you have water proof matches, a lighter and a flint & steel.
• If you are able, purchasing a generator for your house is an extremely valuable item. Make sure you have some fuel set aside to run the generator.

Warmth

• Store warm blankets with your shelter in place supplies. You may not have heat and it will be critical to stay warm.

Light & Communication

• You should have a quality battery-powered and hand crank multi-band radio to get information from local and national sources.
• For light, make sure you have a combination of flashlights, light sticks, lanterns and candles and all necessary batteries.
• Two battery powered 2-way radios are very helpful to stay in contact with loved ones or neighbors.

First-aid & Hygiene

• A shelter in place first-aid kit should be much more comprehensive than your grab-n-go first-aid kit. Make sure you stock common medications that you and your loved ones will need.
• Have a personal hygiene kit in your shelter in place supplies. You may want to consider a portable potty as well, in case the plumbing is disrupted.
• Stock N95 masks to protect against airborne pathogens.

Daily Items

• Make sure you take care of the most vulnerable ones in your group first. Small children and older people are often overlooked in emergency supplies.
• If necessary, stock baby food and diapers for babies.
• Have a supply of simple but warm clothing for everyone in the family. Make sure the clothing is easy to layer.
• Have some games or other distractions to help keep people occupied and improve moral.
• Have some paper goods, like paper plates, cups, napkins, spoons, forks, etc. that can be used for eating.

Tools

• You may want to have items like a crowbar, small axe, folding shovel, rope, duct tape, plastic sheeting and gas shut off wrench.

    Stabilizer for gasoline

    If you store gasoline as fuel for your vehicle, use approved containers as a safety necessity. And make sure you use a fuel stabilizer like STA-BIL. Only store non-ethanol gas because the ethanol partially separates out into water,  in time. 
    Also, rotate the gasoline every six months. Just fill your car with the stored gasoline and fill the cans again.

    Stabilizer

    Good advice on the fuel. I have found STA-BIL to be an inferior product though. I have been using PRI-G for gasoline and PRI-D for diesel for over ten years. These were developed for the marine industry and work very well. I have stored diesel that I treated once a year for over eight years with no water separation and no algae growth in a 300 gallon tank.  I cannot get ethanol free gas here. Yet I have had no water separation in my 300 gallon tank and all of my small power equipment easily over-winters without gum build up clogging up the float valves and jets. I don't drain the bowls in the Fall and everything starts fine in the Spring. It is the best investment for small cost you can do to make sure your fuel is usable when you really really need it.

    Alkylate petrol

    Alkylate petrol (example http://www.aspen.se/Ireland/About_alkylate_petrol) is very popular in Sweden for smaller machines. It's more expensive then normal petrol, but has a number of advantages, one of them a supposed shelf life of 3-5 years (http://en.aspen.se/Home/Common_questions_and_answers_)

    Fuel

    I store very little gas and only the one with the highest octane content. It does not contain Ethanol.
    Most of my small engines (generator, trash pump, backhoe) have been modified to accept propane. The modification consists of replacing the carburetor by a bi-fuel one (Very inexpensive from China as all Honda-clones engines uses carburetors with same attachments).
    Here is a sample link.
    Also, propane has infinite shelf life and is less expensive than gas.

    Cast iron dutch oven

    We experienced an 8 day power outage years ago in Arkansas.  My cast iron dutch oven cooked everythng we needed on our wood stove.  Also great on campfires.  Learn about residual heat cooking as well.  An essential tool.

    I have an old 1998 Ford Truck which I have always run on 87 octane.

    I would guess that you get better mileage with the higher octane fuels.

    But ... they run hotter.

    I am slightly concerned that in the attempt to get better mileage, I will put in the high octane gas, and it will BLOW UP or something.

    Now, probably, that would only happen if I did something boneheaded like let the oil get low.

    Anybody know ?

    I believe you're wasting your $ on high octane fuel LBL.  Back in the day when I was a ASE-certified auto technician, the only need for high octane fuel was for older high compression engines that might be prone to detonation (pinging) if using low octane fuel.  Newer computer-controlled engines can adjust for low octane fuels without damage.  Higher octane fuels will rarely give you more power.  I've never heard it causing high engine operating temps, either.  Have no experience with "racing fuel", but believe the same is true.  Best thing for your leaf blower and other small engines- especially those not used regularly- is to find non-ethanol fuel and make sure you use a fuel preservative.  Good luck, change your oil.....Aloha, Steve.

    Some of my newer power products (now old by most others perception) are sensitive to the crap, scale and varnishes that can be in gas (just try filtering the gas out of the pump), and have multiple fine filters that can plug. The really old motors I have (40 years+) just seem to digest gas of almost any age without changing the ambient din. So if gas longevity is an issue, refurbishing some old (I mean old) machinery may be a better bet than newer stuff (usually easier to work on). Or find power product lines made for the third world, but often hard too find here.

    Octane is measurement of a fuels resistance to detonation. Higher octane fuels require more to burn AKA the higher the number, the harder it is to combust that fuel. This is for high compression or forced induction motors so the fuel doesn't detonate early, causing a misfire or pinging.

    Copied and pasted that.

    But have also read, and heard from saw mechanics that running higher octane in hand power equipment as in leaf blowers, chainsaws, etc, causes extra heat which you don't want in an air cooled engine. Might want to take a look at your piston before, and after running the race fuel.

    There are worse bioweapons

    Now that they’ve effectively collapsed the system, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out the timing for another attack. But this time with something that actually is dangerous and deadly.
    Psaki just tested positive. Even though she’s vaxxed. On Halloween. And will now quarantine for 10 days. 10 days of darkness.

    Now our hospitals, police, fire, rescue have been completely compromised. Also, no one can rely on government data. So even if it sneaks out that people are dying from something new, it will be ignored until too late. If there was ever a time to quarantine, it’s now.

    No Need of High Octane..in Low Compression Engines.

    Your truck is designed for the 87 Octane gas you have been feeding it...unless your truck is a high performance modification.  Increasing the octane of your gas for your low compression engine truck will not increase your gas mileage, but probably decrease it...as the higher the octane is...the LESS flammable the gas is...and in a low compression engine, like your truck, it will fail to ignite properly...WASTING FUEL.

    Your trucks manual...or dealer...will both tell you the specific octane rating for your particular truck.    You will only waste money and gas...using a higher octane than is required for your engine.

    There is no need for a worse bioweapon...than the mRNA "vaccines" already are.

    SARS COV 2 is a bio-weapon.   But, both the Pfizer and Moderna "vaccines" are also bio-weapons.  All of them were specifically developed together by the same people years ago.

    The Pathogen is only the required excuse for the mRNA serums to be injected into as many people on Earth as possible.  There is no need for a deadlier bio-weapon than what has already been disseminated.

    When coupled with cash rewards, paid to hospitals, for administering specific drugs, such as Remdesivir...which destroys both the liver and kidneys of hospitalized patients, especially those on IV bags...and which causes fluid on the patient's lungs...which is mistaken for pneumonia..., plus NOT treating patients with any effective therapeutics...such as HCQ, Ivermectin, Azithromycin, etc., people are dying from these bio-weapons...just fine.

    The long-term effects of these bio-weapons are still poorly realized by the novice, who think sudden and massive deaths are what is sought by this plague's managers, who do not wish this at all.   Slow attrition is what they seek.  They want people to die in a more controllable manner...than all at once.

    Already, we are seeing a dramatic increase in prion related diseases and neurological disorders, and a decrease in resources for an effective immune system in people.

    If mass death becomes the goal...they will simply turn off the electricity for a few months.

    Great insight Ision! Why?

    Your comment  "Slow attrition is what they seek.  They want people to die in a more controllable manner...than all at once."

    My hubby and I discuss this all the time.  He always says: "if there was mal intent, why don't they just take us out quick and fast.  Why the time lapse, why the saline injections etc...."

    My thinking is they do this to confuse us.  But why?  This is a great question... if fossil fuels are the real impetus and lack of resources, then just take us out?  No??

    It's very confusing but unless this is just a game of Gladiator, this sure as shit is very confusing... it's like a neverending Twilight Zone.

    When I look around, I have to admit... the majority of people I know that have been jabbed do not appear to have major symptoms.  They honestly look pretty normal.  I can see that data that Chris produces but could it be that these people ALL have saline shots?  Again, more confusion......

    Hi LBL,

    taking the high octane fuel in an old engine without any adjustment might give you some minuscule less consumption only. Also the engine will not run hotter.

    The savings and the hotter engine will only come when you adjust the ignition (more pre-ignition for higher octane) something newer engines can do automatically through knock sensing.

    And real savings you will only get if you can change the compression ratio - well, which requires engine modification.

    In regards to the fuel

    High Octane should be run in engines that specifically call for it and there are many modern vehicles that do. There is some confusion these days about it. It's not the octane rating that is the issue. It's the ethanol in the fuel. High octane or premium fuel doesnt have any ethanol in it whereas 87 does. That is why small engines require premium. Also storing fuel that has no ethanol will last longer. Running 90oct in anything that doesn't require it won't benefit the mileage or power.

    Techpriest, my information is somewhat different than yours

    My fun car is a 2021 BMW X3M Competition for which 93 octane is the recommended fuel (although it can run on 91).  Shell V Power Nitro gasoline is the fuel recommended in the owner's manual.  Shell V Power Nitro + is Shell's 93 octane gasoline and it contains 10% ethanol.  Their V Power Nitro 91 octane fuel does not contain any ethanol (and is the fuel I use for long term gasoline storage for our other vehicles and for our small motors such as the generator).

    From what I know about motors, higher octane fuel will give you slightly greater gas mileage but that is more than offset by the increased cost of premium over regular. Also, as Andy in the Sun points out, the knock sensing mechanism in many modern engines will automatically adjust timing (within a certain range) to compensate for the octane rating of the fuel.  And 93 octane fuel will definitely produce more power than 91.  You can see it on the horsepower and torque gauges in the car, you can see it on a dyno, and you can measure it in quarter mile times.

    It may be the ethanol

    My husband is the car guy so much of it sounds like “fuel, power, hp, blah, blah blah to me.”  With that said I know I am tasked with getting some E85 to mix with the 93 octane because the mod his car has uses the ethanol go get more horsepower.  So I can well imagine the BMW is tuned to use the 10% ethanol in the Shell gas to increase the horsepower.

    And yes we use 93 in the lawnmower because it is just easier.  It is enough of a hassle to deal with 93, E85 and diesel.  I don’t need 87 just for the lawnmower.

    I think we have the same info more or less. I was more commenting on the relevance of octane in small engines as opposed to ethanol. I dont get 93 where I am so I wasn't aware it contained ethanol.  Thanks for the clarification. High end vehicles are optimized to run higher octane and thus grades will make a difference. Most vehicles benefit so remotely by 90+ as to be a waste, not that they can't run it, just that's there's very little real world benefit.

    It comes from the fact that both the SARS COV 2 virus..and both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA "vaccines" have, or produce, S1/S2 spike-proteins, which ALL have PRION DOMAINS as part of their structure.   It is the PRION DOMAIN, which allows these bio-weapons to firmly attach themselves to the human ACE2 receptors.

    The SARS COV 2 virus is the ONLY coronavirus to include this Prion Domain...and it was the genetic engineering of this domain, during this chimera virus's development in China...which allows this virus to be so infectious.   The prions were added to enhance this bio-weapon's ability to infect humans.

    When you invade the body with trillions of prions...and allow, via the mRNA, for this prion production to be "hard-wired" into your DNA, via RT...as the mRNA is designed to hang around long enough for this to happen...you are going to get an increase in Prion diseases...such as Mad Cow...and many other neurological diseases.

    You must remember ALL the monkeys infected with SARS COV 2 displayed prion related brain disease...all of them.

    What is taking place is the deliberate culling of the human population.

    What the novice "thinks" this culling entails...is poorly thought out...and assumes goals, which do not exist.

    This is not a "hurry up" idea of the pandemic managers...but, a project many years in the making.   A novices guesses...are simply that.

    Why a slow cull?

    A swift cull will result in catastrophe.  All sorts of reasons.  Manufacturing will fall apart entirely.  Nuclear reactors cannot just be switched off and left idle.  The shut down process is quite delicate and takes plenty time (and plenty of highly expert people) to do.  The healthcare system is definitely being deliberately subject to sabotage right now, but they don't want it to completely disappear (after all, the oligarchs need their cosmetic procedures and hip replacements and so forth).

    Somebody posted that the UK is running about 15% above the 5-year average for all cause deaths.  If that continues for a decade, and accelerates over the next year or so (conjecture is the worst of the vax's adverse effects will begin to bite around the 2-year mark) to maybe 25-50% excess deaths, then we'll begin to see population fall pretty quickly.  Just not in a catastrophic 50% in a year kind of way.

    Slow-burn cull is more manageable.  Which is what they're attempting to do -- manage literally every aspect of life from birth to how we live to how we die.

    They'll f$&k it up, of course, being as they are arrogant and too-insulated and human.  I intend to stay out of the way of the machine as it shakes itself to pieces.

    If you want to cheer yourself up, imagine the oligarchs and their Nefarious Plan as the Wicked Witch, just after getting doused with a pail of water...

    "What a world, what a world!" indeed.

    we won't get fooled again

    Covid was a wake-up call for tens of millions of us. When it started in Dec 2019, I actually trusted MSM, TPTB, the medical establishment, big pharma. Since then we have figured out whom we can trust, vs who's trying to poison us and our children (using our tax dollars!).

    They had one chance at a surprise attack, which they squandered, with a very mild virus. Then the establishment forfeited ALL of their credibility.

    TPTB have shown their hand: their grand scheme to enslave us, with CBDC, vaccine passports, social credit score, we will own nothing. We know our freedom and survival hinge on how firmly we rebuff their power grabs. (e.g. Southwest Airlines, American, HCWs and 1st responders refusing the jab.)

    Get used to saying 'NO' to those who are deliberately trying to kill us. DO NOT give the Devil the benefit of the doubt! If we keep messing up their plans, these corporate mafia bosses will turn on each other.

    Now we are expecting them to cause chaos. We are getting ready for it (Vitamin D, broad-spectrum antivirals, organic foods, herbal remedies)

    If they release another variant, or a different pathogen, we already have a playbook. You could even say we have THEIR playbook: paper trail of other DoD / NIAID gain-of-function projects (H5N1, H7N9, Dr Yoshihiro Kawaoka) and the fact that Robert Kadlec, as ASPR, procured millions of doses of a new Smallpox vaccine, (JYNNEOS®, Bavarian Nordic) and the targeted antiviral, Tecovirimat, (TPOXX®, SIGA Technologies) for the US Strategic National Stockpile. (The same paper trail shows Dick Cheney started taking Cipro BEFORE the 1st Anthrax attack in 2001).

    We already know who will figure out the best treatments (FLCCC). We also know who will try to prevent the public from getting lifesaving meds (hint: rhymes with Mao-chee).

    Maybe we have the playbook, maybe not.  Our friend Bill Gates has quite clearly stated Plandemic 2 is coming, and I have a feeling something quite nasty is concocted for it.  It wouldn't make sense to cull only the sheep.

    prions

    So my sense with prions, given my research in the area, is that a single prion doesn't doom you to extinction.  It requires a steady dosing of prions to cause enough trouble to result in bad outcomes.

    My evidence: in the 80s, AIDS patients suffered from dementia prior to ARV coming on the scene (death rate was 8%/year).  Once ARV was in place, the AIDS-dementia issue (mostly) faded away.  HIV has a prion like domain - gp120 - which - I'm guessing now - caused the trouble.  Paper below compares scrapie & HIV gp120:

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9745929/

    Mechanisms of prionSc- and HIV-1 gp120 induced neuronal cell death

    So for the AIDS patients, once "the dose" of prions was reduced (due to ARV = much less virus = much smaller "prion dose"), so was the dementia incidence.  HIV patients still get "early onset" dementia, but the incidence rate is a tiny fraction of what it was back in the 80s.

    And, even better, it turns out you can treat the impact of prion injury.  With niacin.   See my post, below:

    https://www.peakprosperity.com/forum-topic/prions-neurodegeneration-and-niacin/

    Prions cause neuronal cell death due to NAD+ depletion.  Sufficient niacin (the NAD+ precursor) not only stops this from happening, but it can even rescue prion-depleted neuronal cells from death.

    So while I agree that constant supply of prion-like-domains via the injections will quite possibly lead to NAD+ depletion, and neuronal cell death due to the whole prion-like-domain-dose-dependent issue, it can be addressed (at least to a degree) by NAD+ sufficiency.

    Via niacin.

    I may have a case on point.  I'll post more when things get fully resolved.

    Hmm.  I should go order another couple of kilograms of niacin.
