The Worst 10 Things Non-Preppers Will Be Forced To Deal With When TSHTF. (#5 May Be Fatal!)

It’s finally happened…

The worst has occurred. The grid has gone down. The balloon has gone up.

While you were one of the “smart ones” who believes in preparing yourself and your family to survive the coming collapse, your neighbors and fellow townsfolk were clueless.

And now the world looks much different than yesterday morning when they woke up.

You know something they don’t.

In fact, here are…

The Top 10 “Wake-Up Calls” For Non-Preppers When TSHTF


1. You look outside your window and only see darkness.

Our government has admitted that our electrical grid is being held together by little more than duct tape and bubble gum.


We’ve had events as “harmless” as a tree branch falling 5 states away cause entire regions of the U.S. to go black.

Without power, without street lights, urban environments become a pitch-black nightmare when the sun goes down.emp

2. Your family is complaining of being hungry and thirsty all the time

With grocery stores picked clean and chaos still ruling the world outside your home, you’ll be left to survive with only what you’ve collected so far.

In some scenarios, without electricity to run the city’s pumps (or your well), there won’t be any water coming out of your faucet.

Even if there is, if the utility infrastructure collapses and water treatment fails, the water coming out of your pipes could be dangerously contaminated and come out brown and smelling like chemicals or sewage.

People can only live 3 days without water – even less in hot, stressful conditions.

Even for survivalists who hoarded food and water early, you won’t want to run through your stockpile too soon so rationing will be a big part of your response plan… and you’ll need to make hard decisions.

For non-preppers, it will be much worse!

3. Your toilet is smelling up the house.

With no water, there’s no indoor plumbing. But non-preppers will still try to use their toilets which will soon be useless and begin to stink up their house.

YOU will be forced to find another means of getting rid of what’s coming out of your body.

4. You have no access to an ambulance.

In a disaster, critical injuries are more common but your local paramedics will be overwhelmed with the amount of casualties.

You may be the one who’s responsible of whether your child lives or dies from their wounds.

Basic first aid skills may not be enough if there’s massive bleeding.


5. Fires are burning uncontrolled.

With more people turning to alternative means of cooking and heating in their homes, the probability of fires skyrockets.

But as firefighters are called on to assist with crisis response throughout the area, flames will overtake homes and spread.

6. Mobs are moving from house to house – looting, smashing, and burning.

Police departments are manned based on peacetime needs and not prepared for an all out collapse.

With the anger and frustration over not being “taken care of”, local residents can turn mean and decide to take things into their own hands.

In a collapse, there’s no more law.

7. You pick up the phone to call 911 and the line is dead.

Remember the “old days” when the power went out but your phone still worked?

Well, with the “advancements” of internet lines, most phones now are all delivered digitally and almost nobody uses land-lines anymore.

How to Pack the 10 most important survival items for any survival situation

In a collapse, if your computer goes down, so does your phone – and the cell networks will quickly become overloaded and drop your signal.

Your trusty smartphone will be useless.

Even if you do get through to emergency services, police will be outnumbered and rendered practically useless

Many police officers will be forced to abandon their posts and look after their own families and as looting spreads to your area, YOU could be the only thing protecting your family.

8. You feel unsafe at home.

Most people think they can just wait out a disaster.

But what if a flood, wildfire, violent riot, or hostile force is heading your way?

Or the looting mobs spread to your home and there’s no back-up from law enforcement to protect you?

It’s a sad fact that most people will realize they have not choice but to get out of Dodge until it’s too late.

Unfortunately, very few know the right way to design a bug-out “go bag”… even experienced “preppers”.

This is one of the most critical elements of a survival plan and if you don’t get this right, you and your family are in severe danger

9. You look for an escape but there’s no way out.

Without a proper bug-out bag, most people will be scrambling around trying to collect all their belongings to evacuate the area.

This takes up critical time you need to get ahead of the masses.

Amidst the chaos, roadways will be jammed with fleeing citizens and stalled cars that have broken down or run out of gas.

Highways will look more like giant parking lots.

You’re stuck where you are.

10. Traveling outside your home becomes too dangerous.

As a sense of frustration, fear, and hopelessness sets in among your fellow townsfolk, even good people can turn bad.

Desperate people do desperate things to survive – like attacking others for food after asking… then begging… yields nothing for their families.

All travel, even over short distances, will be too risky if you don’t have your go-bag ready and can get out the door before the highways turn into parking lots.

At that point – faced with hordes of desperate citizens in chaos – the odds greatly increase that you could be killed if you venture out.

Preparing To Survive A Collapse

In a collapse, if you haven’t made preparations, if you haven’t stockpiled supplies, if you don’t have a PLAN… you won’t have a prayer of surviving!

Plain and simple.

The sickness, the lack of emergency response personnel, the terrible sanitation, the deprivation from lack of food… these are all realities of trying to survive a collapse scenario with no preparations.

The top ten realities of such an emergency might seem too horrible for most people to face.

But even for those of you who are already preparing, if your only plan lies in your stockpile at home, you can now see all of the threats that you may face that could uproot you and your family in a split second.

This is why all the smart preppers know to start with your bug-out bag – because they realize what others don’t… that you must have the ability to go mobile if a crisis forces you to leave your food, water, and belongings behind.

Put yours together now and put your action plan into place now.

It will be too late to get your evacuation kit together AFTER a crisis is already under way.

  1. I will admit I have no bug out bag. I live in the country and have no intentions of leaving. I am looking ahead but leaving is not an option I’m looking at. My neighbors and I will make a fort out of our area.

  2. Having just bug-out bad may not be enough for any crisis longer than a few days. But to be sure, every member – including the dog – should have a bug-out bag to carry when fleeing.

    But it goes beyond just having bug-out bag. You need a place to go, be it just a few miles out into the countryside or a much longer trek to a well stocked retreat location.

    In either case, pre=positioning supplies and planning evacuation routs are a must! By pre-positioning supplies I mean, you should pre-position enough supplies at well hidden and secure locations along the rout from your main residence to your final destination or pre-established retreat location. It does absolutely no good for you and your family, of say… four, if your journey is 200 miles and each persons bug-out bag only have two day supply of food.

    And if your final destination is more than a day or two walking distance, you might consider some sturdy bicycles with saddle bags and a rear rack, or possible a small trailer or two to attach behind a couple of those bicycles.

    One thing not mentioned in this article is… methods of self defense. Common sense should make it obvious that if you and your family are traveling as a group – with or without bicycles and ample supplies, mere knowledge of your presence, or your passing through a populated area, you sudden;y become the lowest hanging fruit in that area – that is, without some means of protecting you, your family and your vital supplies, your women and supplies become the easiest pickings for those with the means of greater force. Having said that, determine what would be reasonable weapons for self defense and learn how to use them effectively.

    Whether or not you keep your stuff or even keep you and your family alive is in large part, who has the greatest threat of force and who is most willing to use that force.

  3. Jesus Will save you not a backpack full of mangojuice. Repent! I KNOW doomsday is coming but i dont prepare because i have full confidence in thé grave of JESUS CHRIST my (your potential) saviour. Preparing for it is the same thing as renouncing your faith. Heretics and disbelivers will burn.

  4. I will admit I have no bug out bag. I live in the country and have no intentions of leaving. I am looking ahead but leaving is not an option I’m looking at. My neighbors and I will make a fort out of our area.

  5. You are welcome to come to South Africa if you can get here. When the SHTF, we will be ready for you, as we will have gone though it already and finished before you. Love in Christ.

  6. What happens if it involves radiation? A dirty bomb blowing up? Then what? Hope none of this happens. But something is going to happen. I just pray that it is not so severe that we can’t use it as a way to get people to repent and maybe we will be given more time or less of a punishment. Only God can know for sure what happens. I know the bible says it will be a time like never before, and God cuts it short otherwise we would all be dead. I hope so bad that it is not as bad as this. But I know God does not lie. God have mercy on my family and myself and those that love the Lord Jesus Christ.

  7. Your toilet may or may not work, if you have water to flush it with. During hurricane Hugo in Charleston SC we went 6 weeks without water and electric. We flushed the toilet on the 2nd floor of an apt complex by hauling buckets of water from the pool outside. Most sewer systems are gravity fed, meaning the waste drains down hill. A pumping system, whenever used is minimal. Lack of food and water to drink will kill you. Just two days into the outage people were lining up outside of stores that could not even open because of no power. National news did not due justice to the situation in Charleston SC, we had martial law, and one person was shot and others arrested just trying to get back to their houses. At night it was the blackest a night could be with no lite. I walk out of my apt complex one moonless night about 10 feet and had to feel my way back to the apt. in complete darkness because you could not see anything!

  8. All information pertaining to coming events is important……wish to prepare myself better by reading the experiences of others who have gone thru adversity already….. thanks

  9. One would certainly find out who ones friends are in such an case. Teaming up with others with the same values will be key to survival, and always remember, everything is in the hands of the almighty. If he wants you to be fed and have a safe place to live, you’ll not go hungry or left out in the cold. Seek messiah Yahshuah before there is such a need. All that the Father gives him shall come to him; and he that comes to him will Yahshuah in no wise be cast out.
