Introducing…PREPAREDNESS FRIDAYS!!

WHAT ARE PREPAREDNESS FRIDAYS?

Simple! Each Friday, I’ll share helpful hints to get you more prepared! Everyone knows food storage is only a small part of being prepared. So, if you’re ready to branch out into more preparedness, we’ll do it together a little at a time…well every Friday, actually!

WHY SHOULD I GET PREPARED?

According to this recent AP news article

“Nature is pummeling the United States this year with extremes.

Unprecedented triple-digit heat and devastating drought. Deadly tornadoes leveling towns. Massive rivers overflowing. A billion-dollar blizzard. And now, unusual hurricane-caused flooding in Vermont.

If what’s falling from the sky isn’t enough, the ground shook in places that normally seem stable: Colorado and the entire East Coast. On Friday, a strong quake triggered brief tsunami warnings in Alaska. Arizona and New Mexico have broken records for wildfires.

Total weather losses top $35 billion, and that’s not counting Hurricane Irene, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration​. There have been more than 700 U.S. disaster and weather deaths, most from the tornado outbreaks this spring.

The insurance company Munich Re​ calculated that in the first six months of the year there have been 98 natural disasters in the United States, about double the average of the 1990s.”

Natural disasters can happen at any time and any where in the world.  The best way to not be afraid of what is going on is to GET PREPARED!

WHEN WILL IT START?

TODAY! There is no better time to start a new goal then today!
