The Family Survival System

Family Survival System ListThe Family Survival System was created by Frank Mitchell, a proud member of the US Armed Forces and a certified disaster and survival expert with years of experience. The realization that the next economic disaster is imminent inspired him to create the Family Survival System.

Notice it’s not called a course or a guide. It’s called a system because each section has step-by-step instructions with a checklist of action items. Once you’ve checked off everything in the system, you can be sure that your family is prepared to not only survive, but thrive during the coming crisis.

I don’t like thinking about how bad our economy is, how much debt we owe to foreigners, and how corrupt our representatives are. But sometimes we need to think about it in order to stay motivated. It’s becoming more clear everyday that our economy is getting weaker, a food crisis is imminent, and there’s nothing the government can do about it. Even if the economy doesn’t collapse overnight (although I fear it will), our infrastructure is so weak that the government will be unable to save people during the next major disaster.

Since the financial crisis of 2008 there’s been a huge surge in the number of survival-related books and websites. Unfortunately, most of them are just a hodge podge of information you could get online for free, and when you’re done reading them you still aren’t sure what to do first. The official government preparedness site,, isn’t much help either.

Frank Mitchell’s Family Survival System stands apart because it provides clear, specific instructions for both beginning and advanced survivalists. As you work your way through the system, you check off the things you’ve accomplished and move on to the next item. Frank set it up this way so that by the time you reach the end there’ll be no doubt that you and your family are ready for what’s coming.

The Family Survival System includes the following sections:

  • Threats We Face in America Today. 
  • Getting Started With Prepping.
  • The Makeup of Your Family and How it Affects Your Preps.
  • Wild Cards and Other Variables.
  • The Prepper Triangle – Skills, Knowledge, Gear.
  • The Top 3 Skills for the Prepper.
  • The Top 10 Knowledge Checklist.
  • Food – Gathering It, Storing It, Cooking It.
  • Bugging Out vs Bugging In.
  • The Hybrid Situation.
  • Home Defense for the Prepper Family.

These sections cover all the major aspects of prepping including food, water, heat, power, hygiene, medicine, weapons, survival gear, and staying safe. In addition, this system will teach you how to be a leader for the people around you. When things get tough, people will be looking to you for guidance. And if you follow the Family Survival System, you’ll know exactly what to do.

9 Signs Of Collapse

What if you knew the collapse was imminent before the general public? If you did, you’d have a chance to run to the store and grab some last-minute preps before they’re snatched up by looters. Fortunately there are many signs of collapse. I recommend monitoring sites like Zero Hedge for up-to-date economic news and following local news channels on Facebook or Twitter. If you notice several of the following signs at once, you might have a chance to stock up on supplies while the rest of the public is still at home watching TV.

Signs of Collapse

Here, then, are the 9 signs of collapse:

  1. Bank Failures – This, of course, was one of the first signs of collapse before the Great Depression began. If you see bank runs, withdrawal limits or bank holidays, it could be a sign that the game is over.
  2. Empty Shelves – If a normally well-stocked grocery store is having trouble keeping things like milk and bread in stock, it’s a very bad sign.
  3. Increased Police Presence – If you notice more police (especially militarized police) in normally peaceful areas, it could mean they know something you don’t.
  4. Lines at Gas Stations – People will wait patiently for a while, but if they realize the local gas stations won’t be refilled, things could get ugly fast.
  5. Mass Panic – If you see crowds of people at the grocery store buying everything they can in a panic, it’s too late. However, you might still have time to gather your family members from work or school and get them home.
  6. Military Vehicles – If you see a long line of military vehicles making their way down the highway or being transported on trains, pay attention.
  7. Rationing – If the government decides to ration food or fuel, it means that very soon there might not be any food or fuel left.
  8. Riots – Keep a close eye on local demonstrations and protests. If they turn violent, they could quickly morph into a full-blown riots.
  9. Roadblocks – These are fairly common, but if you see road closures by Military Police then you know something serious is happening.

According to Frank Mitchell, a former member of the US Armed Forces and a leading survival expert, at least one of these things will occur before a major collapse. Frank Mitchell is the creator of the Family Survival System. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend watching his presentation. It can teach you everything you need to know.

The Importance of Home Security

Home SecurityWhen preparing for a major disaster, most people focus on food and water. And while that’s very important, people often forget that one of the biggest dangers after a collapse is crime. Like I said last week, it’s very important to have a good home security system in addition to food and water. After all, what good is that food if it gets stolen?

The other day I read a great article on 10 ways to prepare for the collapse. It includes some interesting information about what life was like in Argentina after they experienced hyperinflation in 2001. (To learn more about that, I recommend you visit this site.) Look at how much crime went up after their collapse:

  • Grand theft auto went up 248%.
  • Robbery went up 4,159%.
  • Assault went up 5,597%.
  • Burglary went up 512,100%!

This is why it’s extremely important to make your home as burglar-proof as possible. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Get a dog. You’ll have to stock up on dog food, too, but it’s worth it because most criminals often go to the next house when they hear a dog barking. 
  • Get some doorknob alarms. These are great because they run on batteries so even if the power goes out they’ll work. They won’t necessarily stop a criminal from breaking in, but as with dogs, they’re still a good deterrent.
  • Get some motion detector lights. There are some that are solar powered, but those often don’t last long. I prefer the battery-operated type. (Stock up on batteries!)
  • Get rid of all plants and bushes around your house. All these do is provide cover for criminals.
  • Put this sign or a similar sign on your front door, even if you don’t own any weapons. Criminals will be reluctant to break in if they think they might get shot.
  • Reinforce your doors. Add deadbolts, chains, barricades, door stops, or anything else that will make your doors too difficult for criminals to open.
  • Reinforce your windows. 3M makes window film that keeps the glass in one piece even if it shatters. Getting through it is more trouble than it’s worth for most criminals.
  • Secure other weak points. Look at your house like a criminal. Does your house sit a few feet off the ground? If so, could someone get in through the floor? What about the attic vent? Do you have any skylights? What about your garage door?

These are just a few ways to improve home security. Start securing your home now because when people get desperate for food and water, they’ll be extremely dangerous.

Economic Collapse is Inevitable

Today’s post might seem a little frightening, but it’s information you need to know. A collapse of the United States economy is not just possible, it’s inevitable. Don’t believe me? Let me prove it to you.

Economic CollapseConsider this. The United States currently imports about 2/3 of its oil, and about 2/3 of that oil is used for transportation. The money we use to buy that oil isn’t backed by gold or anything physical; it’s backed by U.S. debt, and our total debt (almost $17 trillion as of this writing) cannot be paid back. However, the dollar still appears to have value because only dollars can be used to purchase oil on the global market. This means the dollar is in demand, and that’s why it still has some value. It’s often referred to as the petrodollar.

Here’s the problem. Many countries like China and Russia don’t like the fact that the Federal Reserve is devaluing the dollar with all its money “printing.” It’s not a good deal for them to get dollars in exchange for oil when those dollars are worth less every year. That’s why they’re talking about trading with each other without using the dollar. What does all this mean?

I believe that eventually the United States will lose its petrodollar status. I don’t know when or how quickly it will happen, but it is certain to happen eventually. Why? Because the dollar will get so weak that countries will refuse to trade for it. Eventually there will be a tipping point and the dollar’s value will collapse very rapidly. That means hyperinflation. And if that happens, countries won’t accept our money and we won’t be able to import oil.

This is very serious because oil is necessary for transportation. If we don’t have enough oil to transport food and supplies to the cities, then people are going to go hungry. And if people go hungry long enough, they will become very dangerous. This is one reason why in addition to food and water, you should think about a good security system for your home that will work even if the power is out.

I hope today’s post wasn’t too depressing for you. More next week!
