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, so that we can
relay disaster supplies to members without traveling far from home.
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 except for short wave radio, CB, and walkie-talkie have been lost.
