The best preparedness blogs out there
Talk about the shit hitting the proverbial fan. 40 people dead in the aftermath of 46 separate and confirmed tornadoes. And to top it all off, a snow storm. Now there is something you don’t see every day. But it happened.
It is a good reminder to be prepared and have a plan. Do you know what you would do if you were one of these survivors? From what I have read, most are going to nearby churches and other facilities to get their basic needs. But what if? What if they were not there to help? What if some of those who died had been better prepared?
Perhaps some would still be alive. Perhaps not. But these are good questions to ask yourself. Would you rather be one of the helpless or one of the helpers? Personally I would prefer to be secure in the knowledge that if the storms didn’t get me, I would be one of the helpers. Someone my friends and neighbors could count on in dire straits.
It can be argued that these things are freak occurrences. But they happen as we have either witnessed first hand or in the news recently. And they will happen again. That is the wonder of mother nature. Always full of these little surprises.
Knowledge really is power. Knowing and being prepared can make all the difference. Or at least the difference between being helpless or a helper. These are true to life survival situations. Times where preparedness and survival skills can be the difference. For you, your family, for your friends and for your community at large.
Please if you are not knowledgeable about preparedness and survival skills, educate yourself. Educate your family. Have a plan. Make provisions ready. Because if and when mother nature does come calling, that knowledge and planning is the difference between the helpless and the helpers.
Best wishes to those effected by these events. And many thanks to the helpers out there who were prepared. You are making a difference.
