Surviving Doomsday: Radio Interview with Urban Survival and Firearms Expert Richard Duarte

Urban survival expert Richard Duarte will be the guest on this week’s episode of Common Sense Prepping. The Surviving Doomsday: A Guide for Surviving an Urban Disaster author is also a firearms expert and attorney in Miami. Duarte’s book also boasts some vital information for suburban and rural preppers as well. Those of us who chose to live in the beautiful and safe countryside tend to leave our homes occasionally. Developing a plan to quickly exit a major city in case disaster strikes while visiting a friend in the hospital or in Orlando on vacation could mean the difference between life and death.
Richard Duarte became more focused on living a self-reliant lifestyle after living through a natural disaster. While his methods and tips offer very sound advice for all concerned with enhancing their survival and preparedness skills, they are of particular interest to urban preppers.

Urban DisasterWhen Common Sense Prepping asked the urban survival expert how living through Hurricane Andrew in 1992 spurred his increased interest in disaster preparedness Richard Duarte had this to say:

“During Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm, I felt completely helpless and alone.  Our house was literally torn apart all around us–there was nothing I could do about it and there was no one to call for help.  In the aftermath, I couldn’t believe what had just happened and how completely unprepared I had been.  That morning my family and I left the rubble of what had once been our home with nothing more than the clothes on our backs. We were all grateful to be alive, but at that moment, I knew I could never again allow myself to be caught off guard.  For a period of time after Andrew, my family and I lived in constant fear of the annual hurricane season, which runs from June 1st to the end of November.  Since 1992 I have been researching and studying what works and what doesn’t.”
