ShieldWall Network homework assignment for over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays: For your local area, research where are the nearest of these resources and assets to your location:
-non-perishable food distribution centers and food warehouses
-Water treatment facilities
-sources of live water (rivers, creeks, lakes)
-Electric power production facilities
-Propane storage facilities
-Gasoline storage facilities
-National Guard Armories
When the collapse happens, those who are able to feed themselves, their neighbors, and their fellow citizens, and provide access to the other above-mentioned resources, will become the persons of influence in their communities.
After you locate the nearest locations to you of each resource, in the next phase research what would be necessary to secure and defend each of those sites from looters. Think about roads and rail lines and waterways accessing them, existing security emplacements there, and how they could be improved. In the final phase, consider what kind of transportation resources would be needed to move those resources to another, more defensible location, where applicable, and how those means of transportation may be accessed near you.
Eventually and inevitably, ShieldWall Phalanx training will expand into wargaming exercises based on the defense of these kinds of locations from thieves and looters, for the good of the community at large, and the distribution of these resources to the community under our supervision in a SHTF scenario as America balkanizes.
