You Need To Be Prepared!
Your life, your families life, your economic survival could hinge on how well your household is prepared for things that Mother Nature does. I venture you understand the “life” risks, but might not get the economic impact of not being prepared for interruptions created by weather and other natural disasters! Well imagine if your power went out and you had to move into a motel at $150 a day? That is about the cost of a kerosene radiant heater and a few days worth of fuel. A week in a motel versus that heater and a $300 generator? So being prepared is also relevant to your family’s economy!

Tips On Survival From The News
Learn from the mistakes of others. There is so much news that illustrates how people who ignore common sense and orders from law enforcement either die, cause their loved ones to suffer, or put first responders in danger.
Don’t be that person!
Being prepared for an extended “shelter in place” or to evacuate when ordered increases your chances of survival. In emergency situations, assume first responders are not going to be focused on emergencies ahead of your need. Also, assuming cell phones will be operational so you can even call for help is very risky. Then there is the cold hard fact that during many emergencies, even if you reach first responders, you might t not be reachable in time.
Be prepared with a household bugout kit!
While you are at it, have a few empty backpacks available in your home dugout kit just in case you are ordered to evacuate. Even if you are fortunate enough to find other shelter, it is likely the food, water, and basic necessities you pack with you, will be all you initially have for an undetermined period of time!
