Earn $3 for Each Ward Facebook Page Created: An Attempt to Spread the Important Message of Preparedness

Have you seen the state of the world Lately? Isn’t Time you Prepared? It is Time to Spread the Message of Preparedness. The World is Ready.

Most families would not know what to do if a major disaster hit. Many want to become better prepared, but may lack the time, information, or just simply don’t know where to begin.

LDS Emergency Resources makes it easy for you to get prepared. We have scores of information, tutorials, preparedness ideas, food storage tips, emergency supplies and much more – all in efforts to help you become better prepared for a disaster… a disaster that will one day come.

Our Goal is to create a preparedness website available for each and every Ward in order to help members better prepare for disaster. If you already have a Ward page, you can still help. We can make this happen if everyone participates. You will be surprised at how quickly you can help others prepare – if you help spread the word.

During this program, we will be paying $3 for each Facebook Ward website created. It takes about 15 minutes to setup and there is no limit to how many pages you can create. If you only create (1) Ward website, you will only earn $3.00. If you create 100 Ward websites, you will earn $300.00. This means that you can earn money for helping us spread this message.

At the end of the program, for each FB page you created, we will deposit $3.00 into your Paypal account or via Google Cart.

Attention: Need Help to Ship Food to Japan – Calling on All Members to a Networking Challenge

Presumably all of you know that the people of Japan are have a very difficult struggle repairing their nation and cleaning up the disaster that has left the country devastated.

We would like to announce that a very generous farmer has offered to donate at least one container (800, 50# bags) of USDA #1 onions to the Japanese people each week for the next two months. This is a very large amount of onions that could help the people of Japan in a variety of ways.

In order to make this happen, the farmer is only asking that the freight charges for shipping be arranged.

This being said, we are asking for any and all of those who may know of any resources that would like to contribute to this cause to please step forward and contact us immediately.

It may be one or many people who contribute to the cause, a company or organization wanted to help, a Ward or Stake contribution, or any other means that can help get this food over to the Japanese people. We are asking for your help of any ideas to make this happen.

For those who take on this charge, we will personally thank and even advertise their company on our website for helping make this possible.

If you know of anyone willing to help, please contact us and let us know immediately. We thank you for your support and look forward to hearing from you.

Where to Go During an Earthquake

Remember that stuff about hiding under a table or standing in a doorway? Well, forget it! This is a real eye opener. It could save your life someday.


My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI ), the world’s most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.

I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries. I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years, and have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.

The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene — unnecessary.

Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them – NOT under them. This space is what I call the ‘triangle of life’. The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the ‘triangles’ you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.


1) Most everyone who simply ‘ducks and covers’ when building collapse are crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a bed, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different ‘moment of frequency’ (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads – horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn’t collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.

8) Get near the outer walls of buildings or outside of them if possible – It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.

9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

Spread the word and save someone’s life…

The entire world is experiencing natural calamities so be prepared!

‘We are but angels with one wing, it takes two to fly’

In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology to be correct. The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul, University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did ‘duck and cover,’ and ten mannequins I used in my ‘triangle of life’ survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and document the results. The film, in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable, scientific conditions , relevant to building collapse, showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and cover.

There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my method of the ‘triangle of life.’ This film has been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA , Canada and Latin America on the TV program Real TV.
