WHY EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS?
Unfortunately, once a problem arises, the time for preparing is over.
Why should your family should be prepared for emergencies? Because, nobody can predict when an event will disrupt our daily lives. Natural disasters, civil unrest, and loss of employment are just a few possibilities of what might occur.
Emergency preparedness will help your family withstand the aftereffects.

A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
Emergency preparedness can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be!

12 STEPS TO BEING PREPARED
- Acquire three months of food storage (short-term)
- Store two weeks worth of water
- Acquire one year of food storage (long-term)
- Understand long-term water storage and filtration
- Prepare emergency kits
- Learn how to cook without power
- Know how to stay warm without power
- Learn about sanitation and waste
- Stock medical supplies and learn first-aid
- Gain knowledge about extended power outages
- Learn about alternative shelter, protection, and security
- Prepare for earthquakes, wildfires, and shelter-in-place situations
CONFIDENCE COMES FROM BEING PREPARED
Emergency preparedness is not just about planning for disasters but becoming more self-reliant. Do you want to be dependent on the government or your neighbors if/when things go bad?
How prepared are you? Ask yourself the hard questions, and commit to making your family more resilient and ready for what may come.
In addition to the above 12 steps, we must also prepare financially, spiritually, and physically. Click on each topic to learn more.
Do you think that emergency preparedness is a waste of time?
If you answered YES, then keep this in mind:
“We don’t rise to the level of the emergency; we fall to the level of our preparedness.“
Your emergency may not be a massive earthquake or a destructive wildfire, but maybe something more personal, like unemployment. Inflation, riots, and pandemics are recent emergencies that may have caused families to dip into their emergency supplies.
Yes, emergency prep can be overwhelming, but it is certainly not a waste of time.
