Be Prepared For Any Emergency

By James and Terry Hyde, R.N., B.S.N.

As co-founders of NewEngllandTimes.Com, my wife Terry and I have been studying preparedness and survival since 1993.

It's important to understand that what we present here is to help you prepare for any contingency. The advice we offer has been researched and researched again to make sure that what appears here is the latest information about getting through any crisis.

If you're heading out into the woods to hike or camp, there are a number of things you need to know in the event you get lost or stranded.

The biggest challenge may be weather patterns, which have become more erratic and strong, storms are more violent, and snow and rain falls are breaking records all the time. We never know when some cataclysmic event might touch down near our homes, businesses, cities and towns

This Web Guide to Preparedness and Survival Section has not been created to scare or alarm you, but rather to help you plan.

It's focus is on how to prepare for almost anything from hurricanes to fires, getting lost, or find yourself amidst vicious storms or encounters with wild animals. This section of NewEnglandTimes.com also delves into the psychology, how you're likely to react to getting lost or stranded and the need to stay calm and focused.

The stories appearing in this section are offered to help you through a range of survival situations. We discuss what your priorities should be, how to find shelter, build a fire, find water and food and how to stay well away from panic, an emotion that sends a shock throughout your system, and how you react to it may mean the difference between getting out of whatever situation in which you find yourself alive and intact.

While we write about preparedness and survival, we are not obsessed with it, nor are we members of any Dooms Day groups. We're pragmatists who stay aware and monitor all we can to keep abreast of any threats. Again, we want to help you prepare for anything that could happen with New England being our primary focus, but many of the articles we write for this ever-growing section can apply almost anywhere. If you have questions, please email us at jim.hyde@newenglandtimes.com and we'll do our best to answer them for you.

Listed below are the most current articles. Thanks for visiting this section and we hope you find it to be informative.
