Community Preparedness - This Month's Focus:
Make a Plan
Okay. So the thing that has never happened before in your life has just happened. The opportunity to plan for this event has closed. No doubt, this will be stressful time regardless of your planning, but our desire is that your thoughts will not be "I wish I had..." but rather "I hope that I've planned well."
So what are the essential elements of a Preparedness Plan?
Make a realistic assessment of the risk to you and your family.
Trust Your Food: Preserve the food you grow or buy in bulk.
Store for the Short Term: Have some "no cook/low cook" foods that are easy to prepare.
Store for the Long Term: Have some staples that can be stored for many years.
Where can I find Emergency Supplies & Equipment?
