What happens to your community when it is taxed by refugees escaping an unsustainable living environment? How does this scenario affect prepping? The wildfires in California may cause a exodus of people from there to wherever you happen to be. What strains will that put on your family and community? Many who have lost their homes to fire had no insurance so they may be relocating with few resources at their disposal to start a new life. Most of them will be "good" people just looking to fulfill the "american dream", but with them will come their own personal view of what that dream looks like and it may have a hard time meshing with wherever they end up. There will be tension as they try to assimilate. How does prepping protect you from those tensions? Strong community ties seem to be one way to ease these tensions and at the same time provide a platform for any newcomers to help their transformation into your community. Any thoughts?
