​How To Prepare For the Nightmare of a Nuclear Event

You can be the person who doesn't panic!

If you ever receive a message like the one, "duck and cover" isn't going to save your life!

On January 13, 2018, over a million residents of Hawaii received ​that exact message.

Most panicked, but some, a very few, knew exactly how to respond, where to go, and who to contact. 


Because they had taken time to learn about nuclear threats, what to fear, what not to fear, and how to prepare and respond.

Ultimately, after 38 excruciating minutes, the alarm was declared false, leaving families shaken and wondering, "What if it HAD been real?"

The #1 reader comment I hate most is

"I don't want to survive a nuclear blast. When I see that mushroom cloud, I'm going to run straight into it!"

​While I ​hate the comment now, I do understand it.  In fact, at one time, I considered that solution myself.

Until I looked at my kids

Without me, how would THEY survive in a post-nuclear world? Would they be victimized and abused or suffer agonizing pain if they were just far enough away from the blast to not die instantly? If they survived, would they know where to find safe shelter and would a compassionate person come to their assistance or would they be attacked by desperate, cruel people?

Those are some pretty dark thoughts, but that's what changed my way of thinking when it came to prepping for nuclear events.

​The Good News is There's no need to fear a nuclear event IF you know how to plan and prepare! 

Let me teach you how!

Even without extensive military or survivalist training, everyday people like you and me can face an event like this. We can know:

  • ​How to Prepare
  • ​How to sort fact from fiction
  • ​Where to go
  • asterisk
    ​How to survive the long haul

You can prepare your home and lead your family to safety in the case of a nuclear event near you.

The problem is, where do you get reliable information that is down to earth and not simply scare tactics? Who can you trust?

With all the chatter and clutter on the internet, it's hard to sort through the good, the bad, and the downright terrible advice to prepare for something as scary as a nuclear event.

​If you're like I was, you are probably wondering:

  • ​Is it possible to actually survive a nuclear event, like a dirty bomb or a nuclear blast?
  • ​Do I really need a bunker to survive?
  • ​What causes most deaths and injuries in a nuclear event? (The answer will surprise you!)
  • ​How can I protect myself from radiation?
  • ​What do I need in a medical kit to treat radiation?
  • ​What is fallout and how do I protect my family from it?
  • angle-double-right
    How long do we need to shelter in place?

Hi!  I'm Lisa - The Survival Mom and Founder of Preppers University.

Like most moms, I have been busy raising kids, helping with schoolwork, keeping the house somewhat organized, and planning dinners and birthday parties. Preparing for a worst-case scenario like a nuclear event was nowhere on my radar, and I certainly didn't have an extra $10,000 for a backyard bunker!

But then, I realized that my family was as vulnerable as the least prepared person during Hurricane Katrina or the hopeless families on the beaches of Phuket when the great Indonesian Tsunami of 2004 hit. Whether the crisis was a hurricane, tsunami, a house fire, or even a nuclear event, I realized I had no choice as a mom but to prepare.

Lisa Bedford - Survival Mom

News stories of suitcase nukes, North Korean missile launches, and the nuclear capabilities of nations around the globe (9 countries have over 15,000 nuclear weapons, just in case you were wondering) had me worried.

With a lot of research and tracking down experts, I learned how to prepare my home, set up a safe room, equip my vehicles (what mom doesn't spend half her life in the car, right?), and assemble a radiation medical kit.

I now know my home and family is equipped to survive.

As I researched how to survive a nuclear event, like a suitcase bomb or an all-out nuclear war, I ​consulted with two experts: ​

David L. Jones

As I researched how to survive a nuclear event, like a suitcase bomb or an all-out nuclear war, I became acquainted with David L. Jones, a retired Army Major who specialized in WMD, Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Major Jones' depth of knowledge reassured me that it is possible to survive a nuclear event.  

Dr. Joe Alton M.D.

My next set of questions had to do with health -- using potassium iodide for thyroid protection, dealing with radioactive fallout, and learning more about radiation poisoning. This time, my friend, , came to the rescue and shared his knowledge and practical advice.

With Dr Alton's knowledge I was able to assemble a a medical kit suited for nuclear health issues.

​I want to share what I learned from these experts - AND MORE - with you as part of an online ecourse: ​

You, too, can learn directly from these experts and begin putting your own plans in place. There really is no need to panic if an "Incoming missile alert" should ever shatter the peace and routine of your everyday life.

You can be the person who doesn't panic!

​Through my Nuclear Survival Intensive you'll learn:

  • What you'll need in order to shelter in place until the danger has passed

The true likelihood of an all-out nuclear war

​How to protect yourself and your kids if you believe you have been contaminated by fallout

​​What fallout really is (This surprises most people.)

​​What to teach your kids and grand-kids so they can survive such an event

If the Hawaiian missile launch taught me anything, it's that I never want to be that person -- the person who curls up and waits to die, the one who sits at home awaiting to be rescued by "the officials", or the one who runs screaming down the street, unable to cope.

What would happen to my children if I completely lost it?

"After listening to the Nuclear Disaster webinar presented by Major David L. Jones, I am more comforted than ever that this could be a survivable situation. His 90 minute class provided extensive education. I am now aware that in the event of a ground detonation my family and I could survive. That's empowering!"


"I thought it was incredibly informative, especially about fallout and winds. I'm very glad I took the time to listen, and take notes."
