The Plan | Prepare blog is dedicated to survival. No matter who you are, no matter where you live, you are at risk. Whether it’s an earthquake, a power outage, a blizzard, an ice storm, a tornado, a hurricane, a flood, a fire, a mudslide, a civil war, a zombie apocolypse or something entirely unanticipated, emergencies, large and small, catch people off guard every day.
Those who have planned and prepared are much more likely to survive than those who have not.
Fail to plan … plan to fail.
If you have special needs, planning and preparation are even more important. Diabetic? Where will you get your test strips and medication if an earthquake shuts down commerce in your area? High blood pressure? How will you re-fill your prescription if flood waters make commercial deliveries impossible?
Depending on the government? Good luck. Even FEMA suggests that you make your own preparations to survive for at least 72 hours. Frequently, it takes much longer than 72 hours for emergency support organizations to mobilize and establish assistance centers.
Depending on charitable organizations like the Red Cross? While these organizations are certainly well-intentioned, thousands or hundreds of thousands of your neighbors may be in line in front of you.
Who can you depend on? In a word … you. The old adage, “If you want something done right, do it yourself,” applies to emergency preparedness as much as any other discipline in life.
The goal of this blog is to help you become self-sufficient in the event of a disaster.
