over-regulation-signs

2015 was a record-setting year for the Federal Register, according to numbers the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., released Wednesday.

This year’s daily publication of the federal government’s rules, proposed rules and notices amounted to 81,611 pages as of Wednesday, higher than last year’s 77,687 pages and higher than the all-time high of 81,405 pages in 2010 — with one day to go in 2015.

ADVERTISEMENT In a blog post on the libertarian think tank’s website, the group’s vice president for policy, Clyde Wayne Crews, said there have been 3,378 final rules and regulations among the pages of the Federal Register this year. Some of the major final rules included the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan and its Waters of the Unites States rule, as well as the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality order

. He said another 2,334 proposed rules were issued in 2015 and are at various stages of consideration. On top of that, President Obama issued 29 executive orders and 31 executive memorandums, among them were agency directives to expand paid family and medical leave and overtime pay.

Its easy for so-called preppers to get complacent when martial law, wartime conditions, and full-fledge police state policies are expected but have not come to fruition. Nobody particularly desires a complete societal breakdown. But completely re-embracing that former Pollyanna lifestyle will leave you with your proverbial pants down when the SHTF.

It’s not a death knell to let your guard down a little. But there are some skills, activities, and exercises that need to stay sharp no matter your perception of the situation.

Hunting & Food Supply

It was March 1, 1942 when the U.S. government commenced the Food Rationing Program for all Americans. Gasoline shortages prevented trucks from delivering food to supermarkets, while most canned goods were shipped overseas for U.S. troops to consume during the war. Victory Gardens—people growing their own food—became both patriotic and necessary. Many pundits and political scientists believe World War III has already started based on the sheer number of conflicts around the globe. It’s more important than ever to ensure your food supply is adequate in the event of sudden shortages.

Disassemble, clean and oil all your hunting firearms after every trip to the gun range. Inaccuracy or complete failure due to fouling build-up is possible otherwise. Spend at least 30 minutes every week on target practice, whether at the range or on your own property. Bow hunters need to wax the string after every session. Replace the string entirely if there is excessive fraying or loose strands, especially around the servings.

It’s important to know what type of game is abundant in your locale and how much meat you can harvest. A hunter safety course in Virginia, for instance, educates participants about rabbits, deer and even bears as potential food game. Those west of the Mississippi could snag one buffalo and have enough meat to last a year. Next time you harvest a deer or other big animal, process and butcher it yourself. This skill will come in handy when processing businesses are no longer available.

Make sure to update your in-house food supply as well. Grab a few extra cans of tuna, chicken and other meats every time you go to the supermarket. Toss out and replace any sugar, flour or other basic ingredients that have been sitting around for years. Now is also a good time to get acquainted with and practice box gardening to grow your own fruits and vegetables.

Survival Fishing

There may come a time when you run out of traditional hooks and line for your fishing poles. That is when your improvisation skills can save you from starvation.

Paper clips, soda can tabs, nails and even a wishbone from certain birds can be sharpened and used for makeshift hooks. Dental floss or even a loose thread from an article of clothing can be the line. You can make lures out of earrings or some other shiny metal that fish will think are fluttering insects. When fishing in clear waters, use a bright-colored cloth for a lure.

Practice constructing all these makeshift items and go fishing with them. It may not be as enjoyable as an afternoon fishing with your high-end reel, but it could ultimately save your life down the road.

Bug Out Maintenance

When you’re ready to head for the hill, it’s essential your bug out vehicle is ready for the trip. Take it for a drive a least once every month and listen for any unusual noises or vibrations. All bug out vehicles should have at least two five gallon cans of gasoline in them, treated with a fuel stabilizer. The fuel tank should be full at all times, but make certain to drive it enough so the gas isn’t sitting in the tanks for more than six months. Test your extra battery’s voltage and charge as necessary.

Make sure that your final bug out location is off the grid and off the map so that others will be unable to locate you. A shelter is a must when it comes to survival, so be prepared and prep a custom bunker for you and your family.

Survivalists can live a fairly normal life and still be prepared for the worst as long they keep essential skills and equipment sharp (literally and figuratively). The saying goes “the revolution will not be televised.” The imminent SHTF scenario will not be announced either.

In this life and in this generation, we are steadily fighting a never ending constant battle. It’s in our nature as people to try and survive the best way we know how. We wake up faced with the fears of the world daily, as we are waged with so many different types of war. War is not technically a gun fight with other nations, war is something you are fighting to beat and control. Whether it be the fight against Ebola, ISIS, economic collapse, martial law, threats of nuclear war etc… must I go on?…. Regardless of what the fight may be, we need to be prepared. Thinking, and preparation is a gift from God, it is a blessing, and not just something you have. You have those blessings for a reason. God wants us to be prepared for the things we are seeing go on today in this cold and dark world, and the things that have not yet begun. He states in the bible to be wise and hide yourself, if not, you will suffer for it in proverbs 22:3. All throughout the bible there are passages that warn us to be prepared.

Here at Rising S we strongly believe in being prepared but also in helping people to be prepared. Our underground steel bunkers are manufactured with you and your family’s safety in mind. We take security, secrecy, safety, and satisfaction very serious. That is why we take great pride in what we do. Rising S Company is the largest, best bunker manufacturing company in the world. We didn’t get that title by luck of the draw we got it because our product and safety features speak for itself. Here is some important information about our bunkers that make them superior to other companies.
• Our bunkers can be buried at ANY depth.
• Coated with an exterior water proof coating ensuring the bunker will last for generations.
• We use Electromagnetic Cathodic technology to prevent rust.
• We only use the highest grade steel and materials on the market.
• Earthquake safe
• Built with space utilization and storage in mind.
• Will act as your first line of defense during a time of chaos
• Lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects.
• Can be built to withstand any caliber firearm.
• Wont crack, collapse, or mildew.
• Steel will expand and contract as the ground changes with temperature fluctuations.
That’s just to name a few.

So the question I need to ask you is, are you prepared? If so, how prepared are you and at what great links will you go to keep you and your loved ones safe? Times are only getting worse and I see no changing for the good anytime soon. I cannot stress to you enough how important it is to be prepared. Being underground is the safest way to go, you will be off the map and off the grid. No one will know where you are except you, your family, and us. We do not use any outside contractors, we manufacture, deliver and install.

Just remember in today’s ‘’wars’’ just as many civilians are killed if not more than soldiers, civil societies are torn apart and ripped in half, children are scarred for the rest of their lives, economies are completely doomed. The Ebola Virus has already killed 3,439 people and counting. No telling how many people ISIS has already killed. If a nuclear attack hit’s it can take out a whole entire city. Those are just some things to think about… Take the time to take action and prepare for the when and not what if.

Nuclear-Bomb-Hits-Washington

Look at the headline and tell me if there is something in the question above that stands out to you? Yes there is. President Obama worries more about the threat of a nuclear device exploding in a major American city than foreign threats like Russia and North Korea.  Seem odd to you?  Well, it should.  I wonder if the ‘’government’’ has any intentions of sharing with it’s citizens any tips on surviving something their own intelligence points to as being the likeliest catastrophic event to occur right here on American soil.  The answer isn’t a simple, “no” or “yes”.  The government’s true objective is to maintain control and civil order. This means that if there were a catastrophic event coming and the public knowledge of this event would result in the collapse of civil obedience or public order; then the government isn’t likely to give you much fore warning.   However if you are informed and watch the behavior of the government;   it will tell you a lot about what they know.   The scary fact is that they are already predicting such an event to occur.

Very few people in Washington D.C. who work for the government have the slightest clue on what they would or should do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded in the heart of the city.  Many people tend to reflect back on movies in which this sort of event has occurred to dictate their own response to an event, right?  In movies, since radiation is BAD, the thing to do is to get away from it as quickly as possible.  These kind of movies depict things such as electronics being completely fried, which makes the response of the people chaotic, and hundred of thousands people die.

Interestingly enough, the government has actually done a substantial amount of work to figure out what exactly would happen if a suitcase nuke (which doesn’t really exist… but for the sake of this example say it actually did) exploded in a crowded urban area.  As it turns out there are quite a lot of things that we can do to increase your chances of surviving  an event like this.  Choices we make could very well make the difference between an imminent death, or a relatively happy and healthy life.  That’s assuming the bomb is a “one-off”.

In 2011, the Lawrence National Laboratory released a report  called “‘’National Capitol Region Key Response Planning Factors for the Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism” that spells all this out for you and I. Unfortunately, it hasn’t received the attention it deserves.    It makes for a worth while and knowledgeable reading experience, so we would advise you to check it out.  A little knowledge may make the difference between being a statistic or a survivor.

Did you know? :

1. The absolute WORST thing for someone to do in the aftermath is to get in their car and drive away.  Roads and exits routes will likely be useless once everyone  decides to leave at once.
2. Unless you’re within about a half a mile radius of ground zero and the shelter options or scarce, the BEST thing for someone to do is to find a stable location inside a sturdy structure. The majority of which will remain standing on the outside of that half a mile radius and stay there for 24 hrs.

In the case that you do survive and are close to ground zero, and a lot of people will survive such a horrific event, the best thing for you to do is:

A. Take immediate shelter, fallout will be falling like rain.
B. Wait an hour or until the fallout is minimal before moving locations,
C. Then you will need to walk about a half-dozen blocks laterally until you find large building to seek sustainable shelter.

3. The Electromagnetic pulse from a ground burst will NOT in fact knock out ALL types of communication.  EMP’s occur when the bomb is detonated in the atmosphere.  For events that occur at ground level; the majority of the damage is a result of the initial force of the explosion and the fallout to come after.

4. If you live in a single family home with thin walls – STAY THERE! Your chances of survival in the immediate aftermath of a blast and not getting cancer are much higher than if you seek shelter from large buildings and structures. Even if a large building is in close proximity to your home and you can make it there safely;  statistically your chances remain much higher for surviving the fallout in a small home than in large buildings.

5. Rescuers and first-response personnel should NOT put on radiation suits if there is no fallout falling from the sky.  Believe it or not –  it slows them down from doing their jobs quickly and more efficiently.  As long as the fallout has stopped falling, they’re best advised to return to their normal attire.

6. Although thousands of people will die from the blast alone, about 96% of the other potential casualties can be avoided if people understand the basics of what to do in the event that they are exposed to mass radiation.  In the event of a radiation emergency, the first thing to figure out is if you are contaminated. If you have radioactive materials on or inside your body, you’re contaminated. Contamination can quickly spread — you’ll shed external contaminants as you move about and release bodily fluids. The CDC recommends the following steps to limit contamination:

A. Get out of the immediate area quickly. (make smart decisions as discussed in STEP 1)
B. Remove your outer layer of clothing.
C. Place clothing in a plastic bag or away from others.
D. Wash all exposed parts of your body.
E. Internal contamination may call for medical attention.

7. Once again, I cannot express to you enough the WORST place to be in the immediate aftermath of a nuclear blast is in a car trying to escape the madness going on around you. It will only make your situation worse and put you in more imminent danger. The so called DFZ (Dangerous Fallout Zone) will extend out as much as 20 miles, but it’s likely to be extremely narrow. If not, that means the concentration of radioactive particles will be lower. The wind will be the key factor in the vector and location of the DFZ, and its size will shrink with every hour that passes.

8. Penetrating trauma’s from broken glass distributed from the explosion is likely to be the largest treatable type injuries caused from the blast.

Regretfully we are unaware of a forum by which the nations leaders or government officials could use to better educate people in major cities about nuclear explosions and topics of this nature with out alarming the general public.   Governments don’t want to alarm the public so don’t fool yourself into thinking there will be some sort of advanced warning (assuming the government had such advanced knowledge) when this sort of event takes place. There are many ways we could increase our chances of survival in such a terroristic scenario but it is our own personal responsibility to educate ourselves about the steps to take.  The threats are a reality and  So be prepared!

new-to-prepping

The good thing about prepping is that it’s less important why you do it. Rather, it’s more about how.Planning ahead is always wise, whether you’re expecting the End of Times, a zombie apocalypse, some degree of political turmoil, or just a big snowstorm heading your way that might knock out power for a few days.Whatever the case, it’s all about being ready for whatever comes your way, although some longtime experts say that can never quite be prepared enough. But hopefully, before the zombies come a’ knockin’, you have enough time to gain new knowledge, like maybe taking a prepping class at a local college, community center, or from your peers in prepping communities.

  • Health: If hospitals, insurance and drug stores aren’t available when things go bad, people will benefit from basic first aid skills, like knowledge on how to stop bleeding or how to reduce a fever. Your local firefighters may offer basic lifesaving classes, along with the American Red Cross, which offers classes in person or online. There are also special programs for instructors who can learn effective ways to teach others. Specific videos online, such as tutorials from The Prepper Journal cover everything from burn care to winter survival.
  • Firearms: Just about all the prepper literature out there recommends owning and using some sort of gun, which can be handy for property defense or food gathering. If you don’t yet know how to shoot, the Doomsday News blog suggests getting some pointers from a local expert or signing up for an NRA-certified program which can teach firearm safety, aiming, and how to handle, store and clean different guns. The blog recommends starting with a .22, which is easy to learn and practice with, followed by a shotgun.
  • Firearm repair: Related to proficiency with firearms is the knowledge of how to repair them, since a well-maintained gun could be critical to your family’s well-being. If you have these skills, it could also be helpful as an additional source of revenue and usefulness if you can repair other people’s firearms for them. There are a variety of accredited online programs, like the gunsmith career diploma from Penn Foster, that can share knowledge of the different types of assembly for typical guns.
  • Food: If you’re able to grow your own food or hunt your own game, you still need to do something with it, so skills like preserving game can be handy. A county extension program through a local college or meat shop will likely offer classes in basic butchering, dressing and preserving. If you’re interested in a garden, the Happy Preppers site recommends using heirloom/open-pollinating seeds, which don’t need to be planted from year to year. These can be ordered from seed catalogs or purchased from someone who is successfully growing the fruits or vegetables you’re interested in.
  • Workshops: The Internet is a good place to learn about online courses or local gatherings, since traditional media may charge a lot for advertising or may not portray preppers in a positive light. Groups like Doomsday News or The Approaching Day Peppers, for example, posts updates about organized activities to learn new techniques. Some are online only, such as the Survival Summit, which included a series of free online workshops one weekend in January. Other commercial endeavors may come to your community. Some fellow enthusiasts like gathering, even for something as organized as a Meetup. As of early February, there were 19,000 members in 184 groups nationwide that are interested in Prepper issues.

This infographic explains the liberties that America has lost in recent years. American citizens continues to sit quietly while we loose our liberties. In recent years, we have lost so many liberties that most are not aware of. The following infographic list liberties that we have lost (and a few that are still in the works) within the last 15 years. America should not sit idle as our freedoms are being plucked away in the night. The average American is not aware that former president George W. Bush made it legal for the U.S. military to be deployed on our own soil to be used against us. The average Joe might also not know that a U.S. citizen can be deported to a place where they can torture us for information even if you are not a suspected terrorist. Its also fact that not only are most of our phone calls have been illegally wire tapped, but the NSA is using private contractors to spy  on your tweets and facebook post. President Obama made campaign promises that he would protect the privacy of innocent Americans, yet here we are today in a digital world where everything is recorded and monitored illegally by the NSA.  The following infographic contains factual information that is easily verifiable with a minimal amount of research. The statistics contained in this infographic are conducted from education institutions, and major polling agencies.

How Americans lost their free speech – Obama signs anti free speech bill.

In March 2012 President Obama signed H.R. 347 into law. The H.R. 347 law is an update of an existing law that was originally passed in 1971. This law restricts the access to areas around people or events that have protection from the Secret Service. The law gives the Secret Service the right to expand a restricted area and make it illegal for you to enter that area even if you did it accidently. This law outlaws protesting near people (or places/events) who are “authorized” to be protected by the Secret Service. The H.R. 347 law makes it easier for the Secret Service to misuse existing laws to arrest and prosecute peaceful lawful protesters by lowering the requirement of intent.

 

First Amendment

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The H.R. 347 is an obvious violation to our First Amendment based on premise it limits our freedom of speech, our right to assemble peaceably and our right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

no-free-speech-in-america

 

‘Oops!’ Doesn’t Count Anymore

The pre-existing law made it a federal offense to “willfully and knowingly” enter restricted buildings or grounds. The new law only specifies that the criminal must only “knowingly” enter a restricted space to be in violation of the law.

For example, a G-20 meeting is hosted in the United States and the Secret Service decides it wants a larger perimeter around the event.  If a citizen wonders into a restricted zone.  That person could be arrested, federally prosecuted and found guilty of violating this law. The penalty is up to 10 years if they are carrying a weapon, or 1 year if they are not – for merely walking into a restricted area without even knowing the area is illegal. The change to this law has made it easier for them to arrest and prosecute you.

 

How this Effects your Right to Protest

The H.R. 347 law has been used to shunt protesters at major political events into “free speech zones”. Am I the only one who thought the entire U.S. was a free speech zone? Police are allowed to use this law at their discretion when events such as the G8 Summit, governmental debates or any ”official event” .

[embedyt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsUlpwrVDJ4[/embedyt]

Today, any occasion that is officially defined as a National Special Security Event (NSSE) calls for Secret Service protection. A NSSE event could include basketball championships, concerts, the Olympic games even though these events have nothing to do with government business.

The H.R. 347 law is written too vague and overly broad. It seems to be a trend that vague laws are specifically designed to create ‘wiggle room’ for Federal authorities to potentially abuse civil and human rights.  Any law that tries to take away our liberties should raise red flags across our country.

 

 

Every kind of shelter (storm shelters, safe rooms, bunkers etc) are vulnerable to nearby detonation without a blast valve.

 

What is a blast valve?

A blast valve is used to protect the occupants within a shelter from the effects of a sudden outside air pressure change (such as a nuclear weapon detonation). A nuclear weapon creates a shock wave which creates a sudden pressure change. This change in pressure can produce extreme changes to our normal atmospheric pressure several miles away from the point of detonation.

How Do Blast Valves work?

Blast valves are mounted over the air intake and air outflow piping in a shelter. They work by allowing the low air pressure to move throughout them in either direction, but they automatically shut when there is a nearby high change in pressure such as a detonation. They also closed when there is a negative pressure (a detonation can blow the atmosphere out from its point of origin) which can be just as dangerous as high pressure.

Illustration that shows how our blast valves work.

Why Does Every Emergency Shelter Need Blast Valves?

Any airtight container that you are seeking refuge from a detonation needs a blast valve. Imagine a submarine in a deep sea that has been leak. The sudden change of pressure causes the submarine to implode. A bunker / storm shelter / safe room has similar issues to deal with in terms of an extreme pressure change cause by a nearby detonation.

Let’s say that you have a storm shelter in your backyard. You hear word that a terrorist organization is detonating several bombs in your area. Your first thought is to seek shelter in your storm shelter. If a blast occurs within a certain radius of your shelter causing a major change in pressure, well it’s just not pretty. You have very little protection from a sudden change of extreme pressure in a shelter that doesn’t have a blast valve.  You could have the most fortified bunker in the world, but without a blast valve you might as well be standing out in the open.

There is a solution

A blast valve from Rising S Company provides adequate protection form any sudden change of pressure caused by a nearby detonation. Any type of shelter from Rising S Bunkers can be outfitted to have a blast valve. To learn more about blast valves and how they relate to bunkers, see our blast valve page.

WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR WATER SOURCES?

According to recent data; most tap water and well water sources in the United States are no longer safe for consumption. Our ever increasing industrial and environmental  pollution  are credited as being the chief contributors to our nation’s water pollution.  America has reached a point that all of our natural drinking water sources have become contaminated in some manner or another.  This includes municipal water systems, lakes, rivers, wells and even glacier run-off.  Contaminants range from man-made chemicals and by-products to naturally occurring minerals.  While many of these contaminants are found at non-toxic levels (meaning they don’t cause immediate discomfort or illness); it is proven that exposure to many common contaminants will, over time, cause severe illness including liver damage, cancer and other serious ailments.  Even the chemicals we use to treat our municipal water supply such as chlorine and fluoride are toxic and known to have significant adverse effects on the human body.

 

POOR WATER QUALITY:  A GLOBAL CONCERN

Water contamination is the leading cause of death and disease worldwide.  It affects over 1 billion people daily; particularly those people in developing countries.  The United States is not exempt from the discomforts of water pollution although primarily caused by natural disasters and human activity. Recent studies of our nations water quality revealed that 47% of our lake acres, 45% of assessed stream miles, and 32% of assessed bays square miles were classified as polluted and unfit for drinking. Due to industrial dumping , hydraulic fracking and agricultural byproducts; a significant portion of ground water and well water sources may also be contaminated. Our contaminated water problems aren’t limited to the drinking water alone.  Our food supply is also adversely effected.  Plants and animals living in contaminated ecosystems in turn become contaminated and often contain heavy metals, chemicals, microbes and pharmaceutical drugs.  Anyone that uses tap water will be exposed to these substances every day.

 

CAN WE TRUST BOTTLED WATER?

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that your water is safe for drinking simply because it is packaged and sold in a fancy bottle.  BOTTLED WATER SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES IS NOT ALWAYS FILTERED and is not necessarily cleaner or safer to drink than tap water.  This was a sobering revelation of a 4 year study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).  The NRDC study included testing more than 1000 bottles of 103 brands bottled water. Although most of the tested bottled water were found to be of high quality, some brands showed significant contamination. Approximately 1/3 of the bottles tested contained contaminants including synthetic and organic chemicals, bacteria and arsenic.  At least one sample exceeded allowable limits under both state and bottled water industry standards & guidelines.  FACT: approximately 1/4 of all bottled water is actually bottled tap water.

 

WATER FILTRATION – What is the best solution?

Having a good water filter is possibly the only solution to our water problem today. Most filters can be installed and maintained without outside assistance. The best option for water filtration is a multi-stage filter system.  Each stage removes certain types of contaminants and when combined should provide complete protection from just about every type of contaminant.  The best and most cost effective system set-up is essentially one containing 3 stages; reverse osmosis filter combined with activated carbon filters and an ultraviolet light.  A system like this will easily pay for itself in 6 months and can last 10-15 years with regular filter changes.  With one simple installation you can protect the environment, provide your family with a healthier drinking water and save money on questionable bottled water purchases.

NBC Air Filtration and Why You Need One

A NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) Air Filtration System is an air filtration system that is capable of protecting your air supply from contamination such as from a radioactive fall-out and chemical and biological agents. An NBC Air Filtration System works by drawing outside air into the ventilation duct and sophisticated filters remove at least 99.999% of dust, mold, bacteria, nuclear fallout dust particles and other chemical and biological compounds.

Why you need an NBC Air Filtration System

Nuclear Threats

Not only is there threats of nuclear attacks from the many small countries hell bent on attaining them, there are also terroristic threats. In the news recently, there was a story out of Mexico in which a truck containing nuclear material was stolen. Looking into that, we found that this is not uncommon in the world. Check out this link to the most resent (reported) nuclear material incidents, I think you will be shocked.   If you take a glimpse at this article from the Washington Post, you will gather that it is not uncommon for nuclear material to be stolen. Although you may look at these incidents and ponder if nuclear bombs can be made of material waste created for the treatment of cancer.  After all, you need more then waste from chemotherapy, and nuclear weapons are highly sophisticated. The waste that was stolen out of Mexico could have easily been transformed into a dirty bomb. In that case, random thieves actually stole that truck being ignorant of the content. If ignorant thieves can steal radioactive material, how hard would it be for terrorist to get their hands on?

Take a look at Fukushima. They built a nuclear power plant on the coast of a region on a significant fault line. The Japanese nuclear plant is said to be still contaminating the Pacific Ocean to this day. Fukushima isn’t the only nuclear plant built in a really stupid place. The image below depicts where nuclear plants are located and also where the earthquake hazards are at the highest threat. This image is as of 2000, since then fracking (allegedly) and other factors have cause the earthquake zones to change. We see a lot of nuclear plants located in hurricane (and tsunami) prone areas, fault lines, tornado valley and in densely populated regions.

Biological Threats

Biological agents are toxins or organisms that can kill or seriously hurt people, crops and livestock. A biological attack is the purposeful release of biological substances or germs that make you sick or kill you. There are three basic groups of biological agents that are most likely to be used as weapons; included are bacteria, toxins and viruses. Most of these biological agents break down quickly when exposed to environmental factors such as sunlight; however, there are others like anthrax spores that can live a very long time. Biological agents can be spread by a spraying them in the air, effectively infecting animals (like mice, fleas, birds and mosquitos) that carry the disease to humans, as well as contaminating our food and water supply.

The pentagon is focused on threats to troops and population and recently ramped up $13.5 million in a research contract to a pharmaceutical company that is learning more about different bacteria that has the potential to be used in biological weapons. If it’s an area of concern with the government, it should be an area of concern for you and your family.

Chemical Threats

Chemical agents are toxic vapors, aerosols, liquids and solids that have a poisonous on people, plants and animals. Chemical weapons can be deployed by bombs, sprayed from planes, boats and other vehicles. They can be used as a liquid to create major hazards to people and our environment.  Many chemical agents may be tasteless and odorless. They can have an immediate effect, or a delayed effect of up to two days.

The most recent chemical weapon attack in Syria has shed light on how real a chemical weapon threat is. U.N. inspectors have recently reported that rockets loaded with nerve agent have been fired from in or around Syria’s military bases. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called it “the most significant confirmed use of chemical weapons against civilians since Saddam Hussein used them”. Chemicals are really being used as weapons in the world right now.

Different Components of The NBC Filtration System

HEPA Filters

HEPA is a type of air filter. They are used in medical facilities, aircraft, automobiles and homes. They must satisfy a certain standard of efficiency, such as the must remove 99.97% of particles that have a size of 0.3 micrometers. HEPA filters are effective in trapping fine particles such as pollen and dust mites.  To learn more about HEPA filters, see our   HEPA Filters informational page.

ULPA Filters

A ULPA filter can remove at least 99.999% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and any other airborne particles with a size of 120 nanometres . This type of filter can even effectively remove anthrax that passes through its system. ULPA filters are used in air filtration to control airborne particulate levels and to stop the spread of toxic agents and infectious disease.

TEDA Carbon Filters

Typical carbon air filters are designed to remove common airborne contaminates, however, they are not designed to protect against deadly NBC agents. NBC agents can only be effectively removed by using specialized treated TEDA carbon filters. Charcoal is carbon, and activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to create millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. TEDA Carbon filtration is effective in filtering out the tiniest of particles. TEDA Carbon Filtration is used by the government and considered military grade.

 

NBC Air Filtration Solution

Rising S Company has combined the most effective HEPA and ULPA filters as well as military grade activated TEDA carbon. Our NBA filter system will effectively filter out 99.999% of the air contaminations and toxins from the air. Our system can safe guard the air against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents.

Exploded View of a NBC Air Filtration System

The most important element to your survival is your air supply. A NBC Air Filtration system can protect your air supply. There are a growing number of threats all over the world (and even in our own backyard) that are legitimate reasons to be concerned for air filtration.  Common military strategy is not to attack the opposing force directly, but to attack its life’s supply. In other words, it’s more effective to poison the air supply rather then drop a couple of bombs in a few towns.

In a prepping mentality, it seems more important to protect your basic life’s essentials such as the air you breathe. Stocking up on water, food, ammunition will not help you if the air that you breathe is toxic. NBC Air filtration should be your number one priority for any prepper.
