Even though I have a bug out plan( sort of), anything short of a localized catastrophe I plan on riding out most SHTF scenarios at home. One of the things I plan on getting is a fireman's pike. Useful for prying open closed doors, poking holes in walls/roofs, and could be used as a weapon. Now the question of ethics. In a scenario where most people have left their homes and won't be returning for some time, would it be ethical to access their property for personal survival? I'm thinking of a scenario kind of like a Katrina/Hugo type hurricane, or massive earthquake, where there would be loss of services for weeks or even longer. Not talking about looting or taking for personal gain, but to obtain supplies necessary to survive. Who would or wouldn't ?
