You can have all the stored preps in the world, but what are you going to do if a disaster wipes out your home and supplies? If you are a member of A.N.T.S you are going to make a request for supplies and have them sent to your location.
To provide members with basic supplies during a disaster.
To have at least one member in every city and town.
Who's in command:
You are, each member is autonomous and makes independent decisions based on the situation at the time, with the ultimate goal of survival for themselves and other members.
How do we do it:
We do it by using level one guidelines for disasters in which people still have communication capabilities outside of a disaster area and level two guidelines for a wide spread disaster in which all communications have been lost. During level one disasters we use the location map and transport supplies in a relay fashion to any member that needs them. During level two disasters we use drop points to leave messages for one another until communications can be restored.
