Not only are we dealing with protecting our food sources, downed power lines and home damage, but we also have to be aware of the criminal aspects that disasters bring on. Looters, raiders and home invasions tend to be at the forefront of post disaster issues due to those who are either taking advantage of overwhelmed emergency responders or are unable to meet their basic needs.
I need to emphasize that this type of safeguarding would typically be done in a sudden, widespread, disaster, where a majority of the population would be caught off-guard thus instantly causing them to be ill-equipped to provide for their immediate needs. In a matter of days if supply trucks cannot gain access to the city, the unprepared will stop at nothing to get what they need in order to survive – and that could be breaking into you home.
