For my Preppers. The average house is engulfed within 166 seconds = 2:46 min, as you see above my women and both kids didn’t open the door until 1:47 out of their room. Lets put the drama that comes from a High School Freshman and a first year Middle Schooler and my women that just finished her Monday. A prep and a plan doesn’t matter when it just needs to be done.
I got my phone ready and set the stopwatch and turned it on as soon as the fire alarm went off. My plan was to stop them from just walking out the front door. And Jen should help the kids out the window. (we are on a first floor) They opened the door and said “Really Dad” Wow!!!!!! it amazes me no matter what I try to do in life I am always the insane black sheep. I looked at the phone and saw they only had a min left to get outside the house and get to the destination place and THEY WENT BACK TO BED. My own family.
So I understand the struggle that most of you run through as a prepper. Lets review the following points, What did I do wrong? I mean if I wanted to is have us all walk or hike to our bug out location at a moments notice.
Can we schedule a house Fire, Can we set our alarms for a fire to wake us up when one happens? No we can’t
I encourage you to plan you family’s escape plan. It should be fun and playful even if it is at 12:30 at night. You should build confidence in your family and a sense of accomplishment. Today I cannot say the same.
12:30 was just 26 min ago and as a Prepper I’m upset, but it is the world we live in and the struggles we have. Maybe I should of said that Kim Kardashian is in the front of the house and we need to get to her possible we could of survived. Sad times folks.
I encourage my prepper friends to try this a full out drill and time it.
