Civil Unrest Emergency Card

Posted on August 17, 2022
  • Please note for all emergencies: CORAC Communications runs a HAM radio net on Sunday evenings at 7:30 PM Eastern time. At 7:30 Eastern, they are up on 14.227 MHz (20 meter band), then, at 8:00 PM Eastern, they switch to 7.284.1 MHz. In an emergency situation, they will broadcast new times and frequencies on those nets.
  • If communication goes out for any length of time, meet outside your local Church at 9 a.m. on Saturday mornings if it is safe to do so. Tell friends at Church now in case you can’t then. CORAC teams will be out looking for people to gather in and work with.
  • First, stay in prayer
  • Focus on what you can do and can control, rather than what you can’t
  • Quickly and safely assess the scope of the unrest if you can
  • Contact your CORAC Reg. Coord. ___________________________
  • Prepare to defend yourself/family/property.
  • Make sure all firearms are cleaned and any magazines are loaded.
  • Check if family members are safe; if they need help getting to a safe location, evaluate options.
  • Once/if home, secure your area and stay inside and away from doors and windows.
  • Be vigilant and aware of unfolding events.
  • Do not engage in verbal confrontations, and do not physically engage protestors. If you are personally confronted, remain calm and try not to raise your voice or escalate the situation.
  • Be sure home security cameras and detectors are in working order.
  • If you have elected to do so, join your community defensive force in mission.
  • If you are in your home (sheltering in place is best if possible):
    • Ensure all doors and windows are locked
    • Close curtains/drapes completely
    • Stay inside and away from doors and windows.
    • Gather all of your firearms to where you are hunkering down in the house
    • Gather to yourself anything in the house that can be used as a weapon:
      • Car keys, baseball bats, pepper spray, tasers, flashlights, knives, screwdrivers, metal knitting needles
      • Raid Wasp & Hornet Killer (sprays up to 22 feet, spray into attacker’s eyes)
      • Fire extinguisher (spraying it into an attacker’s eyes, then hitting them with it)
    • To every extent possible, stay aware of the extent, scope, and spread of unrest to continue to monitor the safety of your home (reliable news feeds, social media, other sources)
  • If you are away from home or must leave it:
    • Monitor the location of the violence, and plan an exit route around or away from it; generate at least 3 options before departing
    • Know in advance your destination, if at all possible (and if possible, have several alternatives)
    • If possible, join with others in departing (safety in numbers); exit your home as a family or in a group, and depart calmly (running attracts attention)
    • If on foot, link elbows and walk to avoid getting separated. If you’re having to move with a crowd, move with it until you can escape to a side street
    • Avoid public transportation routes and main thoroughfares as they may be blocked by rioters
    • Stay away from police lines, as you may get caught in a line of fire
    • If driving away, keep a firearm, pepper spray or other self-defense item readily at hand in your car
    • Lock your car doors; roll windows up; shut off your ventilation system (to avoid teargas getting in)
    • If you must pass through a crowd, keep your foot on the gas pedal and keep the car moving, even slowly
      • Do NOT wear your seatbelt when moving through a riot–you may need to make a fast escape
      • While you can’t use your vehicle to hit people or run them over (at least not legally or wisely), you can use it to push or shove them aside. If someone is in your path, for instance, you can drive slowly forward and once they see you’re not slowing down, they may step aside. Furthermore, you actually can hit people with your car if you do it defensively.
      • However, the moment people begin attacking your car and trying to pull you out, the game has changed. Now you can begin to accelerate and forcefully use your vehicle to push them aside. Still, don’t hit them any harder than necessary.
