Without monitoring media and news outlets you won’t know what’s happening in the world. It’s vital to keep up to date with the news and be able to separate the facts from fiction.

● Internet: Social media can spread the message pretty fast about impending disasters without any bias that the media has today. You can set keywords on news websites to notify you when certain events happen near you or when a global event takes off.
● Friends & Family: The more people in your prepping party that are watching for disasters and keeping an eye on the situation can provide multiple failsafe’s if one person doesn’t check the news for a few hours. Everyone can ring each other and keep them all informed about a worsening situation and keep in close contact when the time to come has to bug in or bug out.
● The Media: In 1983 90% of the media was owned by 50 companies. Today in 2018 90% of the media is controlled by just 6 companies. For more information on media corruption see the MEDIA section.
● Government Organizations: You can sometimes opt into getting text updates to natural disasters or other events that happen in cities. These can be very helpful as you get the information straight from the source such as the weather bureau.
● Government Institutes: Governments will attempt to control all sensitive news released with an impact to the public and will threaten heavy fines or jail time for any media outlet that doesn’t comply with these demands. Generally their main aim is to avoid a mass panic and exodus of people which will make it nearly impossible for them and other government agencies such as the police to do their jobs. They typically only look at the big picture and take action to avoid the most causalities from an event by downplaying the news even if that means a small group of people dying,

Monitoring Websites
These are useful websites to help you track and monitor the disasters around the world, whether it’s volcanoes, the stock market, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and more. To have the best chance to reach your bug-out destination before the rest of the population finds out you should be constantly monitoring most of these websites.
