What You Need to Understand about Water in a Disaster (Part 2)

This is a very important article series that will provide you with essential  and practical information for surviving during an emergency. Please start with the first article in the series. A key to understanding WHY FEMA/Red Cross recommend the treatment methods that they do (and why they don’t recommend other treatment methods) requires some core understanding of water and water contamination. THE FIRST THING TO UNDERSTAND is that water contamination is not one-dimensional. There are different categories or types of contaminants that can be in water. These types of contaminants are…   PARTICULATES. Particulates are suspended contaminants that make the water cloudy, or turbid. Particulates can consist of many different substances, and can indicate the presence of biological contaminants.   MICROBIOLOGICAL. Biological contaminants are living organisms including bacteria, parasites, viruses, cysts and more, such as cholera, e. Coli, giardia, worms, etc. These organisms can cause serious illness or death.   HEAVY METALS. Heavy metals, also called inorganic contaminants, include toxins such as arsenic, fluoride, lead, mercury, nitrates and many others. Heavy metals can be very toxic and have been linked to brain damage, birth defects, neurological damage, cancer and other serious health issues.   RADIOACTIVE METALS. Radioactive metals include toxins

My Original Motivation for the Survival Still: Third-World Families

Did you know that the current version of the Survival Still is not where it began? Actually my original motivation for the Survival Still was to help people in third-world countries. Have a look at the video that I made a few years ago. You will also notice something interesting, the Survival Still today has evolved quite a bit since then, and it will continue to evolve in the future. In addition to the product evolution, our business model has evolved. Our goal is to model ourselves after Tom’s Shoes (which is buy one and we give one), or even to take the concept further. We aren’t there yet, but our original motivation is still in place: we will make a significant impact on the health of people around the world. Your support of us and of the Survival Still helps us reach this goal! Thanks for your support!

FEMA and Red Cross Recommendations for Treating Water in an Emergency (Part 1)

Today I am starting a important article series about FEMA and Red Cross recommendations for treating water during an emergency. This is very important, practical information that everyone should know, because having a supply of safe drinking water during an emergency is one of the key aspects of survival. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the American Red Cross have prepared a comprehensive pamphlet that instructs people how to make water safe to drink during an emergency. My goal with this article series is to go beyond the information in the pamphlet and explain to readers WHY FEMA and the Red Cross recommend the treatment methods that they do, with the intent that a deeper understanding of the core issues will enhance your ability to survive an emergency. BEFORE READING ANY FURTHER, YOU SHOULD PRINT THE FEMA/RED CROSS PAMPHLET OUT AS WELL AS THIS ENTIRE ARTICLE SERIES SO YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION IF THE POWER GOES OUT. YOU SHOULD STORE THESE DOCUMENTS IN A WATER-PROOF, EASILY ACCESSIBLE LOCATION. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FEMA/RED CROSS PAMPHLET. THE RECOMMENDATIONS. FEMA and the American Red Cross recommend three treatment methods for treating water during an emergency. Here are

NPS Expo Highlights (Including Drawing Winner for a free Survival Still)

Over the weekend we exhibited at the NPS Expo (which stands for the National Preppers and Survivalist Expo) in Nashville, TN. To sum it up, we had a great time, met some fantastic people, got the word out about the Survival Still and got a LOT of people excited! The Survival Still is a brand new product that was just introduced in December of 2012, so our main job right now is to get the word out and to try to get new dealers. We succeeded! In fact, I believe that we came away as one of the most talked about product at the show! If you came by the booth, you would have either met myself (Glenn Meder) or my father (Al Meder). I am grateful for my father’s love and support in this venture. I hope we were able to  meet you and give you a good demonstration of the product. If you still have questions, please call me on my cell phone at 402-617-9469. I’m happy to say that we are going to be featured on some different YouTube channels. First, Lucas Cameron, who is a Doomsday Prepper, has a YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/7trumpetsprepper and will be

Welcome Dealers!

I am happy to announce our new Dealer Pages on our website! As a dealer you will be able to login and see the private Dealer Pages, but the public won’t be able to see these pages. My vision with this is three-fold. First, you will be able to log in and place orders for the Survival Still. There are two types of orders that you can place, bulk orders and drop-ship orders. Bulk orders come in ten-packs that will be delivered to your place of business free of charge (within the 48 States). You can also order drop-ship orders, which means that you place an order and we will ship it directly to your customer from our warehouse. Second, the Dealer Pages will be a place that we will supply you with the tools that you need to be successful at selling the Survival Still. We already have a “Tools” page up, which allows you to download the latest price list, logos, brochures, business cards, etc. We hope to keep adding more and more tools to this section. Third, we hope to create a strong community for the dealers. We don’t have this set up yet, but I would

Renowned Physicist Michio Kaku on the Fukishima Disaster

When I look for a true expert to weigh in on major events of the world, such as the Japanese Fukishima Disaster, I look to renowned physicist Michio Kaku. In this post I have compiled some different videos, and one audio recording of Michio Kaku. This is fascinating stuff and it gives a very clear insight into what actually happened in the Fukishima disaster, and what it means to the world. First, on June 21st of 2011, Michio Kaku tells us that the Japanese Government lied to us.   Second, the most dramatic statement was how the Northern part of Japan actually came close to blowing up! Third, another even more detailed look at it. Fourth, a radio interview. Fifth, how the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Reactor in Nebraska almost became a slow-motion Fukishima.
