These two go hand-in-hand. Together, they can make your surroundings as safe and secure as possible. Sometimes, depending on your location, this might be simple.
But other times, it takes a lot more work to make your surroundings as safe and secure as you possibly can. One position I held for about a year was, private alarms. On the day shift, I installed both silent and not-too-silent arms, most were in businesses, but some were in private homes. On the night shift, I answered those alarms. Silent alarms were connected to a central station, at the business I worked at, and whenever an alarm was tripped, it notified the person at the central alarm station, and they would radio whomever was on duty, and we would respond to those alarms.
Sad to say, at that time, I worked in the Chicago, Illinois area, and the Chicago Police Department were very slow to respond to silent alarms, if they responded at all. Anyone in law enforcement will tell you that, it is nearly impossible to search a large building on your own — not good!
While working the day shift, installing alarms, it could get pretty boring. The biggest job was running the wires all over the building and at times, these installations could take a week or longer.
On big jobs, there might be two of us doing the installation. We used a lot of infrared alarms and they sensed movement. However, other alarms covering the area would more than likely pick-up your movement. Then we had alarms that picked-up body heat, There was no way getting through them without setting them off.

When, in Chapter Three, Rawles introduced the Jew for Jesus, I threw the book down and resigned myself to having wasted eight bucks. James Wesley, Rawles - you suck! This is more right-wig fantasy that it is post-apocalyptical.
He has said that the popular media has developed an incorrect far-right "lunatic fringe" image in part because of the actions of a radical few. He called this a distortion of the true message of survivalism. Unlike the handful of fringe proponents, Rawles focuses instead on family preparedness and personal freedom. He explains that the typical survivalist does not actually live in a rural area, but is rather a city dweller worried about the collapse of society who views the rural lifestyle as idyllic.
