Realistic Emergency Preparedness
I think we are all beyond discussing why you should be prepared. Climate and weather events, supply chain disruptions, pandemics, war, job loses, energy shortage and inflation should be enough to start thinking about putting a few things away. Emergency Preparedness is more important than ever.
It can be over-whelming and expensive if you are just starting to look into it. Research can be confusing because preparedness (or prepping) spans from canning to off grid living to mountain survival. The range of preparedness is vast so we try to approach preparedness on realistic, personal and geographical factors.
We suggest the following;
PLAN: What is your greatest worry? What should be your basic preparedness? How many people do you have to prepare for? Are there any challenges that would require additional planning? Planning can take awhile as you look into different probable situations and what is required to be prepared. If you have the right information to start it will help reduce workload.
PREPARE: Preparing is as simple as a small shift of consciousness. When you read about people being trapped on a highway in the winter for hours or days do you put yourself in that situation? Are you prepared to spend that time in a vehicle, possibly with kids and pets? Would you be comfortable if a ice storms took down the grid for days or weeks in the middle of the winter? If a run on the grocery store happened due to panic would you be part of that crowd or would you have enough food to get yourself and your family through this period?
PROTECT: We are not talking owning a gun, or spending excessive money on a alarm system. There are simple ways to protect your home without breaking the law. Based on your individual comfort level protecting yourself, your loved ones or your supplies, can take on many forms.
