When The SHTF, Who Gets Government Help First?

Recommended Posts

If you live in one of the top 10 priority cities when the SHTF, you will probably get your power and water back on first.

The First Counties To Be Relieved By The Government After SHTF

<snip>

The first priority for FEMA is going to be big cities, with Washington, D.C. probably at the top of the list. Prioritizing D.C. looks a lot like self-interest, but in this case it probably isn’t. In a really major disaster the leaders of the government will have evacuated anyway, and they’ll be working from emergency bunkers. Getting the capital sorted out will let the rest of the government start rebuilding itself, though, and even if most of us usually wish the government would leave us alone, it’s going to be important if the entire USA needs rebuilt.

Once D.C. is under control the next priority will be the big three urban areas – New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. There are a couple of reasons for this and the first one is simple; there are lots of people there and they’re going to be in a bad way. Even the power going out for a couple of days will reduce a big city to chaos; an EMP, or an actual nuclear strike, would leave millions of people helpless and unable to survive for long on their own.

Cities are fragile, especially when things go seriously wrong. Without urgent rescue operations they’d quickly collapse into anarchy as people fought for the limited resources available. Unburied corpses and contaminated water would spark epidemics. Fires burning out of control would cause death and destruction on a huge scale. If a Russian SS-25 ICBN detonated above Manhattan Island it would kill about 1.5 million New Yorkers in less than a minute. That’s bad enough, but without an immediate and massive FEMA response at least another four million, including almost all the three million injured by the blast, would be dead within a couple of weeks. They’d just starve, dehydrate, burn, or get sick and die.

Another reason to prioritize the cities is that bringing them under control will help get the government running again and make a start at rebuilding the economy. A major national catastrophe or attack would cause huge damage to the USA, but if the cities can be stabilized the country can rebuild a lot more quickly.

Here are the likely priorities:

  1. Washington, D.C. – Government
  2. New York City – Largest US population center
  3. Los Angeles – Second largest population center
  4. Chicago – Major population center, finance, manufacturing
  5. Houston – Major population center, oil industry
  6. Dallas – Population center, oil industry
  7. Philadelphia – Population center, manufacturing, oil refining
  8. San Diego – Population center, military
  9. Phoenix – Population center, food processing
  10. San Francisco – Tech industries

Dallas and Houston are on the list but Im not too sure that Texans will take kindly to the Fed's trying to "help out" around here. Texas has its own power grid and we are fixin to hardened the grid right now. Good luck to the rest of y'all. LOL

Texas Legislators Lead the Nation on Grid Security

This week, the state legislature of Texas took monumental steps to secure its own part of the U.S. electric grid known officially as the Texas Interconnection.

On May 9th, the Texas Senate passed SB83 by a 28-3 vote. Authored by Texas State Senator Bob Hall, SB83 addresses the Texas electric grid’s vulnerability to electromagnetic pulse, extreme space weather, physical, and cyber-attack threats.

On May 10th, the Texas House unanimously passed Rep. Tan Parker’s HB787, which is a similar, but separate grid security bill that creates a grid advisory committee to study the Texas electric grid and its vulnerability to electromagnetic pulse and cybersecurity threats.

Fema Zone 3 got super heavily supplied up awhile back. I suspect priority is there. Texas got half a million level 4 suits. Dallas actually I think? Arkansas has no citizen anything, fema or the un will get them. The last time the red cross was there, they made people hope they never come back and the last time fema showed up, it was to dump out 200 for-show generators for 2,000 people. Based on that, I would guess that in truth, the gov only has stuff to help about 10% of the population. It also makes me wonder about that "de-human the country" thing a little too. Food shortage is already being put on and either because of ICE or "food shortage" the ag fields around me are empty this year. This year, ONE "worker" on a tractor comes out one day a month and stirs up the dust. That's it. So don't have enough and creating less apparently? at the same time?

Their first order of business will be COG.

If you want to really see the governments reaction/preparedness then, look at hurricane Katrina, then look, all those years later, at SuperStorm Sandy, not even a hurricane. Look at the so called response.

We are on our own, those clowns will be living the life, all cozy and warm, well fed, thanks to the working folk that paid and continued to pay for it all.

They'd better learn to ration because there won't be anymore coming from us. And they'd better stay where they are.

The elite get government help first.  Remember how FEMA "helped" New Orleans during hurricane Katrina?
