FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 9, 2014) – “Earlier this afternoon, while participating in a national test of Kentucky’s Emergency Alert Notification System, an inadvertent message was sent to mobile devices in the Laurel County area with the text: ‘Civil Emergency in this area until 11:50 a.m. MST. Prepare for action.’ The error was discovered immediately due to the quick response of the public contacting local emergency management officials and the media. A follow-up message to disregard the previous message was immediately dispatched by Kentucky Emergency Management (KYEM) through the same system, and social media advised the public to please disregard the previous notification.” (see video of the messaging).
Everybody must be prepared for emergencies and disasters. Whether the disaster is natural or wilful acts of irrational man, the consequences can be life threatening for those not prepared. A sudden loss of power, communications, food and water for prolonged periods can happen without warning. In extremely cold countries, a winter catastrophe will add to the woes.
In another recent development, FreeBeacon reported the following bizarre acquisition and distribution of survival kits to the banking sector”:
The Department of Treasury is seeking to order survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation.
The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The survival kit includes everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets.
The government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, according to the solicitation released on Dec. 4.
The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines.
The kits must also include a “reusable solar blanket” 52 by 84 inches long, a 2,400-calorie food bar, “50 water purification tablets,” a “dust mask,” “one-size fits all poncho with hood,” a rechargeable lantern with built-in radio, and an “Air-Aid emergency mask” for protection against airborne viruses.
Survival kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United States including Bank of America, American Express Bank, BMO Financial Corp., Capitol One Financial Corporation, Citigroup, Inc.
Is something going to happen in the banking industry that warrants such actions that is apparently targeted at the major banks? Why is the government providing survival kits for those in in the banking institutions? Why not everybody? Nobody really knows. But the drums of financial collapse and ensuing chaos are growing louder each day. The time may be near for the mother of all financial collapse. People may become so mad at banksters that caused the misery that they be targeted for violence. Be prepared, more so if you are in the banking industry.
18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
