Anytime is  good time, to take stock in what your emergency preparedness plans are.  It’s also a good time to look back at previous periods where folks “had to make do, or do without.

How is your family preparing or prepared in:

Fuel Energy

If disaster strikes, will you/your family be ready?

    I’ve been going back and forth between whether or not it’s a good use of our money to purchase some sort of 72-hour kit for if we would have to leave our home quickly. If we’re able to stay, I feel we’d fare fairly well, but it’s the pick up and go that had me worried. So, just a couple nights ago, I placed my order with Emergency Essentials for a kit I made up myself. I have to say that now that it’s done, I’m glad I did it and look forward to putting it together and tucking it away- hopefully to just gather dust:-).

    I’ve even written books on preparedness and realize there are still things to be done. There are a few sort of preparedness avenues: emergency, long-term home, short-term bug out, and so forth. It’s a fun thing to consider and work at if you don’t take it too seriously and don’t get paranoid.

    Living in the earthquake state, I’m always thinking of how to be prepared. I have 2 beautiful sons and an adoring husband and want to make sure we’re prepared just in case. Thanks for the reminder! ;0)
