Sheltering In-Place

There are a lot of radio prepper videos on YouTube, the majority based around fantasy scenarios involving evacuations to mountain redoubts pre-stocked with supplies to survive a zombie apocalypse.

A lot of good observations and lessons learned, and very well presented

A lot of great information on what did, and did not, work - and why
