“Are You Ready for Emergencies?”
By Sandy Zimmerman

What would we do without all of our technology which makes us so comfortable and safe? Matthew Stein, a mechanical engineer and building contractor, is dedicated to helping people become aware of how to survive emergency situations when technology fails. With oil prices rising, global warming, and all of the natural disasters, he feels “Technology will keep on failing,” and suggests, “Start by identifying the tools that are dependent on technology and re-learn the skills of our ancestors to become a survivor personality”. Perhaps he is referring to becoming a modern day Robinson Crusoe.

“Use your intuition!” Matthew explained, “If you are lost in the woods and do not know how to return to camp, the Pit of the Stomach exercise will help you get in touch with your intuition. Should you return by the ridge or the river? Take a few deep breadths while focusing your mind on the pit of your stomach. Do not think in your head. Keep breathing deeply until you feel relaxed in order to clear your mind. Be sure you feel relaxed and calm, then picture, in your mind, going downstream. See if you feel tightening up or relaxed.

Next imagine going along the ridge. When you feel relaxed with your visualization, then that is the way to go.” This advice seems good in any situation. When you stop to clear your mind and weigh the possibilities, the comparison becomes clearer. How did they do things in the days of the pioneers? If the telephone lines are down, how do you reach your family? Matthew recommends to have a meeting place if your family are at work, at home or at school. Matthew appears on television, lectures groups, and has written a book, “When Technology Fails”. He feels, “Preparedness is like car insurance, people hope they do not have an accident, but just in case you can use it”.
