00:00:00.030 --> 00:00:03.060
so now that you know what you're
preparing for it do you know who you're

00:00:03.060 --> 00:00:06.690
preparing for have you thought about
that I'm not talking about aliens I'm

00:00:06.690 --> 00:00:11.070
not talking about zombies talking about
friends neighbors and family you may be

00:00:11.070 --> 00:00:15.240
saying family and why the others well
let's talk about that on the other side

00:00:15.240 --> 00:00:23.070
of the intro hey everybody welcome back
to Cascadia dispatch I'm Casey and today

00:00:23.070 --> 00:00:26.519
we're gonna talk about who you want to
be thinking about when you're preparing

00:00:26.519 --> 00:00:31.050
for some sort of a disaster or an
emergency or something like that in our

00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:34.829
last video we talked about what you
would be preparing for so we get an idea

00:00:34.829 --> 00:00:37.680
why are you talking about an actual
disaster are you talking about an

00:00:37.680 --> 00:00:42.600
economic issue some sort of a medical
concern so we kind of started to get an

00:00:42.600 --> 00:00:46.680
idea of what we would be preparing for
when that might happen some of those

00:00:46.680 --> 00:00:54.840
ideas is it seasonal is it a random act
of nature but now something about who

00:00:54.840 --> 00:00:58.289
are we gonna prepare for and I'm not
talking about aliens I'm not talking

00:00:58.289 --> 00:01:03.239
about zombies I'm not gonna you know
necessarily you know a person that's

00:01:03.239 --> 00:01:06.630
gonna come and create the problem
talking about as you're thinking about

00:01:06.630 --> 00:01:11.659
your plan who are you thinking about in
your planner who are you preparing for

00:01:11.659 --> 00:01:16.619
to make sure you have enough supplies
for who are you thinking about and when

00:01:16.619 --> 00:01:22.259
you talk about a team of people to make
it through whatever the emergency is so

00:01:22.259 --> 00:01:26.040
that's what we're gonna focus on in this
episode we'll kind of walk through a

00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:31.229
couple of different scenarios and then
we'll wrap it up so let's get on with it

00:01:31.229 --> 00:01:34.590
okay so when we think about the who
we're gonna break this up into a couple

00:01:34.590 --> 00:01:40.829
of different kind of scenarios one is
you're kind of at home base location one

00:01:40.829 --> 00:01:47.130
is going to need your community and then
one is going to be traveling and you'll

00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:50.610
understand why I've broken this up here
when we get into it here in a second

00:01:50.610 --> 00:01:55.979
okay so home base this is going to be
the people that live in your home with

00:01:55.979 --> 00:02:01.320
you most likely it's going to be your
family and maybe your pets if you have

00:02:01.320 --> 00:02:05.490
pets don't forget about your pets if you
have pets a lot of people forget to plan

00:02:05.490 --> 00:02:10.300
for pets and then there's a disaster
and you have issues with the animals and

00:02:10.300 --> 00:02:13.900
things so always plan for your pets make
sure you have some way of keeping them

00:02:13.900 --> 00:02:19.690
contained and fed and watered
same thing with your family so you may

00:02:19.690 --> 00:02:22.660
not need to contain your family I don't
know your family might need to be

00:02:22.660 --> 00:02:27.010
contained who knows but we make sure
that we've got enough food and water for

00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:32.850
our family of four plus our cat and then
all of the other supplies that we need

00:02:32.850 --> 00:02:38.650
to plan around that number of people for
whatever amount of time we're planning

00:02:38.650 --> 00:02:44.080
for be it two weeks a month six months a
year that's kind of the base number that

00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:49.090
we go off of okay so let's talk about
community so community is means

00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.990
different things different people and in
this scenario there are some slight gray

00:02:52.990 --> 00:02:56.590
areas here so I'm going to talk a little
bit about that and then you kind of

00:02:56.590 --> 00:03:01.900
decide what applies to you so the first
area is family extended family some

00:03:01.900 --> 00:03:04.840
people don't have extended family that
live nearby so you don't need to worry

00:03:04.840 --> 00:03:10.090
about this for us we have family members
that live close by and so we have built

00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:16.030
into our plan and our supplies enough
food and water and supplies shelters and

00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:20.650
things like that so that they can come
from their homes to our house and our

00:03:20.650 --> 00:03:26.110
house can be kind of the base camp for
everyone in our family so we have we

00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:29.800
have accommodated for that some people
if you don't have a family live closeby

00:03:29.800 --> 00:03:35.110
you don't need to worry about that
friends are kind of another circle out

00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:40.540
so some people might want to prepare for
their home base to be the the home base

00:03:40.540 --> 00:03:45.970
for all of their friends for us we have
a lot of friends that live close by we

00:03:45.970 --> 00:03:50.769
probably couldn't support all of those
friends if they came to our house so we

00:03:50.769 --> 00:03:56.230
have opted to educate them on how best
to be prepared because I can't be trips

00:03:56.230 --> 00:04:00.340
together we've gone you know I've shown
them the gear that I've got they

00:04:00.340 --> 00:04:04.780
shouldn't be the gear that they've got
we've talked about plans as I come

00:04:04.780 --> 00:04:09.250
across new strategies I fill them in and
then also just making sure that they

00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:12.970
have the minimums that they have water
that they have food so that you know if

00:04:12.970 --> 00:04:16.340
they need to be based out of their homes
that they have

00:04:16.340 --> 00:04:20.989
enough and we know that they're gonna be
safe you can't prepare to help everyone

00:04:20.989 --> 00:04:27.620
but you can at least educate everyone to
prepare themselves next up is neighbors

00:04:27.620 --> 00:04:32.240
and this is the tricky one because you
know you may not like your neighbors

00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:36.290
your neighbors may not like you you know
who knows in our case we love wait we

00:04:36.290 --> 00:04:40.940
like all of our neighbors your case may
be different but in the middle of a

00:04:40.940 --> 00:04:43.669
disaster
the neighbors are the people that you're

00:04:43.669 --> 00:04:48.860
going to see every day suffering along
with you through whatever the disaster

00:04:48.860 --> 00:04:52.220
is and if they are not prepared they're
also the ones that are going to be

00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:55.910
coming and knocking on your door because
they see that you have supplies and what

00:04:55.910 --> 00:04:59.090
they don't have food and they don't have
water and you do it becomes a really

00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:04.910
difficult conversation to have of sorry
we don't have enough for you when you

00:05:04.910 --> 00:05:10.550
have stores for three weeks or six weeks
or whatever it is and you have to turn

00:05:10.550 --> 00:05:14.389
people away so the best way to avoid
that is to make sure that your neighbors

00:05:14.389 --> 00:05:18.229
are prepared - we've done this by
talking to most of our neighbors

00:05:18.229 --> 00:05:20.660
especially the ones that are right
around our house our next-door neighbors

00:05:20.660 --> 00:05:25.940
across the street and making sure that
they're aware of what the potential

00:05:25.940 --> 00:05:30.830
dangers are making sure that they have
some amount of water some amount of food

00:05:30.830 --> 00:05:35.330
some amount of supplies in case
something were to happen our neighbors

00:05:35.330 --> 00:05:39.950
we have a few people in our neighborhood
that also take emergency preparedness

00:05:39.950 --> 00:05:44.570
very seriously so we've actually started
to kind of put in some neighborhood

00:05:44.570 --> 00:05:49.070
groups together of if an emergency
happens who has communications equipment

00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:54.410
and who has medical expertise and who
has you know military training so that

00:05:54.410 --> 00:05:58.419
we have an idea of if a disaster were to
happen how could our neighborhood

00:05:58.419 --> 00:06:05.630
survive and and exceed expectations of
making it through whatever the disaster

00:06:05.630 --> 00:06:12.410
is as opposed to just kind of being a
group of suffering people who are

00:06:12.410 --> 00:06:16.400
waiting for help that may or may not
show up so educating your neighbors

00:06:16.400 --> 00:06:19.249
educating your friends educating your
family preparing

00:06:19.249 --> 00:06:23.959
family all of those are really great I
think the best options that you have for

00:06:23.959 --> 00:06:27.679
your community okay so the last thing is
to think about when you're out and about

00:06:27.679 --> 00:06:32.359
when you're not at home you're not
worried about your neighbors or your

00:06:32.359 --> 00:06:36.829
friends because you're not at your house
you want to make sure that you're

00:06:36.829 --> 00:06:40.879
prepared for the people that you travel
with so most of the time that's going to

00:06:40.879 --> 00:06:43.969
be your immediate family probably
because you're going out for the day or

00:06:43.969 --> 00:06:47.779
you're going on a vacation or something
like that but it could also be for

00:06:47.779 --> 00:06:53.029
example carpools to school if something
happens while while you're driving a

00:06:53.029 --> 00:06:57.110
carpool and you have other people's
children what do you do in that case do

00:06:57.110 --> 00:07:00.799
you have enough supplies to not only
take care of you and your kids but also

00:07:00.799 --> 00:07:05.419
the kids that are in your care or if you
carpool to work do you have enough

00:07:05.419 --> 00:07:09.709
supplies for the people that would be in
your carpool so the easiest way to kind

00:07:09.709 --> 00:07:13.039
of think about this is if you have five
seats in your car make sure you have

00:07:13.039 --> 00:07:17.359
some bare minimum supplies that could
sustain five people for some amount of

00:07:17.359 --> 00:07:20.899
time if you have seven seats in your car
make sure you have enough for seven

00:07:20.899 --> 00:07:23.719
you're likely not gonna have eight
because you don't have seatbelts and

00:07:23.719 --> 00:07:27.499
that's illegal but you know make sure
that you have enough supplies for the

00:07:27.499 --> 00:07:31.309
number of people who could be in your
car if you have supplies for seven and

00:07:31.309 --> 00:07:35.089
you only have three people in your car
well great you have extra supplies and

00:07:35.089 --> 00:07:39.019
that you're going to be even better off
but if you have seven people in your car

00:07:39.019 --> 00:07:43.129
and you only have supplies for three now
you have you know hunger games on the

00:07:43.129 --> 00:07:47.139
freeway with people that you know and
it's just a it's an awkward awkward

00:07:47.139 --> 00:07:51.229
situation to be in which I would not
recommend especially when you can plan

00:07:51.229 --> 00:07:56.389
ahead so I would say the most important
thing make sure you have enough supplies

00:07:56.389 --> 00:08:00.019
for everyone who could be in your car
and then you'll either have extra or

00:08:00.019 --> 00:08:04.879
you'll have just enough but don't plan
to have fewer because that's just not a

00:08:04.879 --> 00:08:08.749
great thing okay so that is gonna wrap
it up for this video talking about who

00:08:08.749 --> 00:08:14.119
to prepare for this is really about
numbers it's not necessarily like I said

00:08:14.119 --> 00:08:18.289
it's not about zombies invading and
preparing for them or or aliens coming

00:08:18.289 --> 00:08:21.860
and you know making sure we have enough
tinfoil hats for everyone this is really

00:08:21.860 --> 00:08:27.279
about how many people are you preparing
to support through your emergency plans

00:08:27.279 --> 00:08:31.969
and thinking about who's going to be at
your home base who's going to be

00:08:31.969 --> 00:08:35.120
in your community that you need to
support somehow and then what is your

00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:38.750
plan for when you're out and about that
should take care of most of the

00:08:38.750 --> 00:08:42.680
scenarios and give you idea when you're
thinking then about what are you

00:08:42.680 --> 00:08:46.670
preparing for now you know how many
people to prepare for and then as we go

00:08:46.670 --> 00:08:50.629
through the series thinking about how
that relates to every area of

00:08:50.629 --> 00:08:55.250
preparedness you start to get an idea of
the scale and scope of what you want to

00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:59.480
be thinking about and how you want to be
planning what plans are relevant to you

00:08:59.480 --> 00:09:02.689
do you have a carpool maybe you don't if
you don't then you don't even worry

00:09:02.689 --> 00:09:07.310
about it do you live close to family if
you do you will probably want to take

00:09:07.310 --> 00:09:11.180
that into account if you don't live
close to family then you may not need to

00:09:11.180 --> 00:09:17.180
account for them at all what you don't
want to do though is plan for you know

00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:22.250
two people and realize really quickly in
a disaster that you needed a plan for

00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:28.939
six or to plan for six and realize that
you needed a plan for 22 you really want

00:09:28.939 --> 00:09:34.790
to have an idea you know what that is
and then get an idea of what that base

00:09:34.790 --> 00:09:38.389
level supports kind of look like for
that many people how you're gonna come

00:09:38.389 --> 00:09:42.889
together as a team so that's today's
video talking about who you want to

00:09:42.889 --> 00:09:47.269
prepare for getting those priorities in
place so that you've got enough supplies

00:09:47.269 --> 00:09:52.699
for everybody thanks again for watching
I hope you enjoyed it in the comments

00:09:52.699 --> 00:09:56.569
below let us know how many people you're
preparing for you know what's the

00:09:56.569 --> 00:09:59.360
smallest group that we've got looking at
and what's the biggest group let's see

00:09:59.360 --> 00:10:03.889
if we can kind of figure that out and be
kind of fun again like subscribe share

00:10:03.889 --> 00:10:07.910
give it a thumbs up
we passed the 100 subscriber mark last

00:10:07.910 --> 00:10:13.399
week so that was kind of exciting in our
own URL Cascadia dispatch on youtube so

00:10:13.399 --> 00:10:17.750
that was exciting so I appreciate all
its subscribers so far we can't want to

00:10:17.750 --> 00:10:21.709
keep pushing to higher and higher so
tell your friends share with your family

00:10:21.709 --> 00:10:27.490
and we'll see you next week that's gonna
do it thanks a lot
