Alarm & Muster
The Modern-Day Call-Tree for Emergency Preperation
Thomas Michael Fernandez, January 2009
Months before the first shots of the American Revolution were fired; colonials had devised and developed what appeared to be a modern day "call-tree." Though communication during the 18th Century was limited to pen, paper, and horseback, the network they had set up prior to the night of April 18, 1775 was almost as modern as today's communication abilities of cell phone, email, and video.

You don't have to join this list. Form your own. Find those people you shoot with, go bowling with, have an after Church lunch with, that would interested in answering a call during an all out TEOTWAWKI/SHTF scenario.
If you have been active at all on the Internet, with the NRA, or politically, then more than likely you are already on some government list or another. Paranoia over this may be warranted, but if your tinfoil is wrapped that tight already, this isn't going to add to it much.
Things are getting bad out there folks. Luck favors the prepared.
Excellent and about time, I’ve already been contacting like minded neighbors, but I will start expanding my personal network and getting the message out...
As you previously stated... and that is something I was taught in the military... Luck ALWAYS favors the prepared.
Thanks for the post!
From the mountains of SW Virginia, we are ready for the call. I’ve talked to many and have asked if they would be willing to give up their firearms? The answer is always the same, “Hell NO.” Without a means to resist, we become slaves.
Can't have last season's jeans, that would just be TEOTWAWKI...
I'm looking at this as more of a Prayer Chain type thing. If all else fails, it gives us an excuse to get connected with like-minded folks and at the very least gives us an excuse to have a meet-n-greet or a group range day.
I'm okay with that. At least some are waking up. Gives me an opportunity to "take a newbie to the range". ;-)
Could be wide spread panic amongst the yuppy crowd.
Nah, without the caffeine they won’t be able to function and withdrawal gives you such a headache you wouldn’t believe. I’d advise buying stock in Bayer, but most of them don’t have enough education or common sense to look there for a fix.
I don’t think I’ve ever actually been in a Starbucks. If I want something that fancy, I just dig out my cappuccino machine.
None of us can stand it. It tastes like the grounds. We grind our own (when budget permits) and think it’s great. About the only time we get “fancy” is when we put a shot of Irish Whiskey, sugar and whipped cream with chocolate sprinkles. What can I say — we’re solidly middle class. ;-) I do love cappuccino when we go out to an Italian Restaurant.
I’m signed up now.
Central Missouri is warming up.
Thanks for the heads up.
Unfortunately I don’t have any neighbors I would trust.
Especially not the new ones with the Obama sign......we outnumbered them 10 - 1
"One if by Land. Two if by Sea."
Already talking to family, friends, etc... I get word from upstream, I pass it on to a couple of different mail lists and forums. Where it goes from there is up to each individual.
Better to be prepared than caught out...
Heck, our internet went down the day after Obama came into the Presidency, took a full week to get it back.
That is why later (or now) phone numbers and addresses can and should go to each regional POC, on of the first actions in a major "action" is to cut data and communications within a targeted area...
But, Remember how the original patriots did it?... horse back and lanterns.
Amen Brother, I'm not a very religious guy. But with whats happening these days, I've been rethinking that... a lot!
I've already shot the Alarm and Muster out to friends and family all over the country and I'm getting some good feed back on it, a lot of people have been feeling the same way. I have a feeling this is going to grow fast.
That does sound good... got room for one more?! ;-)
