Southern Illinois News

Hello everyone! I know, it's been quite a while since I made even a peep here at the Illinois Preppers Network. I'm still down here in the south eastern tip of Illinois, slipping and sliding on the ice we got this week on top of the pitiful amount of snow. It's hanging on pretty well as it is down right cold.

Once again, southern illinoisians ran out at the last minute to stock up on what they think they need to be iced in. Despite the poor economy and folks around them urging personal emergency preparedness, most of these folks down here are still living day to day with nothing stocked in their pantries.

Interestingly, the Trust for America's Health rates Illinois a rating of 6 out of 10 on emergency preparedness.

We should never put ourselves into a position where we would need to depend on local government to take care of us. We should be prepared to take care of ourselves. Think ahead, think of the things you will need and stock those items in reserve for when your emergency happens.

Also, a side note here as to what the economy looks like in southern Illinois. Apart from the serious increase in all types of property crime, now we have a woman running around trying to rob people at gun point. Always be aware of your surroundings and look around to see what is going on in your immediate vicinity. it could very well save your life.

Stay safe, think safe and keep prepping!

Good to hear from you, MM! And I'll say an 'Amen!' to being prepared to take care of ourselves instead of relying on the govt. Merry Christmas!
