There’s a new survival guide from Alec Deacon and Professor Charles Green called “Darkest Days – How to Survive an EMP Attack to the Grid” that’s just recently been released.
The program has been generating a lot of interest so I wanted to do a review on it and report my finding so far as how it stacks up to others on the market.
This is a review, Click Here for the Official Darkest Days website…
If you’re reading this, then you’re probably aware of the importance of being prepared to survive in the wake of any disaster, natural or man-made.
Let’s face it, there are plenty of smart people who have reached this same conclusion given recent events like the rise of ISIS, the threat of WMB attack from terrorists, Iran, Russia and China, and the Ebola epidemic. Each of these issues has the very real potential to spiral out of control and lead to the breakdown of society as we know it.
I live along the San Andreas Fault, which is WAAAY overdue for an earthquake, so I’ve been looking into survival and disaster preparedness guides for a while. Now, when I heard about Deacon and Green’s survival guide, I thought “EMP?! That’s a new one… what the heck is that?” After looking into it, however, it definitely raised my level of concern.
Who is Alec Deacon?
I hadn’t heard of Alec Deacon before, but he’s actually well known in the survival and disaster preparedness community. He’s the best selling author of Backyard Liberty and the editor of Survivopedia, which many people consider to be the go-to source for information on survival and living off the grid.
Alec spent twenty years studying survival strategies and specializes in rural and wilderness survival. So I guess you could say he knows a thing or two about survival techniques and defending your family when things go bad…
After looking into his background, I would say this guy is quite the authority on the subject of prepping for ANY disaster. That’s a good sign since a lot of guides on the market come from some dubious sources. It was good to know Deacon’s a well known authority with the skills and experience to teach this type of material
What Exactly Is The Darkest Days Survival Guide?
Ok, so let’s get into what this is all about. I would say, it’s something you should definitely learn and be prepared for.
EMP stands for Electromagnetic Pulse. Deacon cites to NASA data which confirms that there’s a certain period of the solar cycle when the sun is experiencing violent activity. An EMP can occur in nature when there is a massive solar flare that reaches Earth’s atmosphere. When this happens, it could short circuit the electrical grid and ALL electronic devices. In other words, it would send us back the Dark Ages. Pretty scary stuff.
In the event of an EMP we’d be dealing with food shortages, an economic collapse, mass looting, and the possibility of a mass pandemic.
An unfortunately, an EMP event can be man-made.
Deacon points out that an EMP bomb is cheap and easy to make and calls our attention to a twelve year old kid who was able to make a mini-EMP bomb in his basement with a few household items! He posted it to YouTube! That’s even scarier than the prospect of massive solar flares in my opinion.
Not only that but America’s enemies are already suspected to have developed HEMP bombs (high altitude electro magnetic pulse)… Ok, if you’re like me, there’s no way you can sleep easily after learning this stuff.
So, a smart person would look into preparing for the worst case scenario here. The guide is all about surviving an EMP Event, but it could actually be used to prepare for any natural or man-made disaster.
How Did Deacon Develop This Guide?
I wanted to learn about how Deacon came to develop this survival system, and it’s actually a pretty interesting back story. As I mentioned, he’s been a well-known figure in the prepper community for a while and he was researching EMP preparedness. That’s when he found out about Professor Charles Green, a physicist and prepper himself.
Professor Green spent two years living with Amish, the religious group, who have shunned all modern comforts and maintain a traditional way of life that goes back 300 years. He learned to survive a post-EMP world by learning the secrets of the Amish way of life. In particular, he learned how keep food from spoiling without a fridge, and a secret Amish use to store heat-sensitive medicine.
Seeing a massive opportunity to teach live-saving survival techniques, Deacon and Green teamed up with a survival guide that incorporated everything Green learned from his time with the Amish.
What You Get With This Program:
The program is available in both downloadable and hard-copy format. I think it’s obviously important to get this in hard-copy because in case of any disaster, that’s what will be most useful.
One of the most interesting things included in the program is a step-by-step guide on how to assemble a simple device using household items that will shield your electronics from EMP. In the event an EMP really does go off, this could mean the difference between life and death.
It also includes Amish methods for preserving food and medicine. Obviously, it goes without saying that this is priceless information that could applied in the even of any natural or man-made disaster. The guide teaches you how to live under the radar, so you can go unnoticed and protect your family from the bad guys in the even of a total breakdown of law and order. I think it goes without saying how important this information is.
Then, the program also comes with two bonuses: “Off Grid Home Protection Systems” and “How to Make Your Own Pharmacy”. The first bonus is a special report on how to defend your home from violent looters. A must-have in my opinion when it comes to preparing for any catastrophic disaster.
It’s nice to believe in the inherent good in people, but when law and order break down, violent looters and criminals take advantage of the weak. Just look at what happened in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina as a case and point.
The second bonus guide, How to Make your Own Pharmacy, is billed as the ultimate survival medicine guide. It’s a special report on natural treatment alternatives and natural remedies, which includes tips on how to prepare and store medicine. Again, a no-brainer that could mean the difference between life and death. A full description of everything included in the Darkest Days program is available here…
For starters, I like that there’s so much information on how to survive a world where society has completely broken down… from food prep and storage to home defense to first aid. To be honest, I’m not sure about whether there’s an impending EMP event (who could know?), but these guys are authorities in their field and the guide can help you survive in the even of any catastrophe or disaster.
One feature that really stuck out for me was that it provides unlimited access to members’ area where you can ask any questions to Deacon and Charles, which is an awesome feature because it provides ongoing tips and advice from the experts.
Some might take issue with the “doom and gloom” nature of the guide, but let’s face it we live in a dangerous world. My philosophy is to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. So, even if you’re skeptical about an impending EMP event, there are so many tips and strategies on how to survive in the event of any disaster that I just don’t see a downside.
After taking a hard look at this guide, I would absolutely recommend it. Even if you’re skeptical about the prospects of an EMP event, this guide helps prepare for any disaster and being prepared can mean the difference between life and death.
