I’m gonna be honest, making a disaster kit completely stressed me out. I hope my experience will make it better for you. I’m no expert at this but have learned a lot along the way. And there is no question, I feel so much better with my family prepared and my preparedness tidied.
As The Economist said last week when discussing Iceland’s volcano, “Disasters are about people and planning, not nature’s pomp.”
I believe in the 3 tiered approach you see everywhere:
- Make a Kit(detailed below and in my video)
- Make a Plan (how to communicate and find your family)
- Stay Informed (what disasters are likely to happen, where to find info)
If you watched the video, you know that Dr Suzan Mazor and I were totally overwhelmed by the task. Do your best to buddy up; having a partner was the best move I made. Hopefully she’d agree. Thanks again, Suzan. Please continue to be my friend despite me filming a video while sitting under a desk and having you help edit it at 11:30pm on a Friday night. Read full post »
