How safe is your commute to work? Could your travel route be dangerous?
Statistically, your daily commute is the most dangerous driving that you do. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us that over half of all car accidents happen within 5 miles of home, and 69 percent of accidents are within 10 miles of home.
Part of the problem here is that familiarity breeds contempt. It's remarkably easy to become bored, driving the familiar route that we drive around 250 times a year. This is especially easy if you've got a long daily commute. We're all prone to letting our guard down, perhaps even more on the trip home, if the day at work has not gone well.
Happily, there are things that we can do to help reduce the dangers.Read More

Camouflage appropriate to your surroundings helps, of course. If you're trying to go unnoticed, a ghillie suit works far better in low brush than it would on a downtown sidewalk.

How to Organize a Neighborhood Emergency Group
You likely wouldn't be human if you didn't enjoy the creature comforts of modern life. Air conditioning and heating, indoor plumbing, grocery stores, vehicles...not to mention flat screen televisions, music playlists and the internet!
But these are luxuries, and the wise among us never let themselves forget it. Because in the moment the power goes out, so much of what we take for granted simply goes away. After power, plumbing is typically the next to go, followed by potable water and perishable food stores.

You have to come together, pool your resources and protect each other to make it through safely. In these disaster situations, an organized, prepared neighborhood emergency group is a handy source of help indeed!
In this article, learn the steps to take to organize an emergency preparedness group for your neighbhorhood.
