So what does being prepared for an emergency mean?  What exactly is an emergency?  What does being prepared mean to me?  If you have asked any of these questions, you are not alone.  In these times or termoil and uncertainty, many people and families are looking at self sufficiency and preparedness to ensure they can deal with whatever disaster and/or emergency they face and not have to depend strictly on Government or System.  There are many levels of being prepared for an emergency or disaster, but there are three steps to get there.

Identify the Risk
Each location on our planet will present different and specific risks.  Identifying what localized risks are relevant to you and your family will help you better prepare.  Focus is the key.

Have a Plan
An emergency plan is easy to create and if practiced, will make facing a difficult situation methodical and less stressful.  It is very important for you and family members to know what to do, how to react, how to contact, where to go and what to bring.

Preparedness Kit
Whether putting together an emergency kit for your car or a 72 hour disaster emergency kit, each has its purpose.  Assessing personal and family needs when piecing together any kit is essential.

These three steps are the base of being prepared for an emergency or natural disaster.  Being prepared is not the same as being “doomsday”.  Following the steps above will help you get through the tough times like extended power outages, severe weather and unforeseen circumstances.
