0097 – Preparing for Civil Unrest

Check out the Warrior Summit. We will be cutting off registration soon, so get online and get registered.

As far as the threats we face in society one of the most dangerous and chaotic that I see is the threat of civil unrest. The events taking place in Egypt may seem like they are half a world away, but the reality is much more close to home.

Civil unrest is not unheard of in the United States. Take a look at this list of events.

Since the start of 2010 there have been 9 instances of civil unrest in the U.S.  none of the issues that we have had to deal with have been as large scale as what is going on in Egypt, but that doesn’t mean that a larger scale event isn’t possible.  With 9 events taking place in under 18 months, it is simply a matter of time before civil unrest effects an area that is close to you.

How do we prepare for civil unrest?
