The powers out and you do what next?
Have you got something at home in case the power doesn’t come back soon?
Have you got some food, water, light, heat, entertainment, and communications?
What happened? Doesn’t matter yet, you either have it or you don’t,
If you want to get it now there will be a significant amount of completion for it.
You should have been better prepared.
I’m not suggesting that anything will happen.
I’m firmly planted in the “I hope nothing happens” camp
But should something happen it’s better to be prepared.
“I’m going to Costco & locking the doors” is the equivalent of “my retirement plan is to win the lottery”
There are many examples of major crisis in the media, so much that it has become part of our culture.
Zombie Apocalypse * Alien invasions * Global Viral outbreak
Economic Collapse * Nuclear Meltdown * Environmental Catastrophe
So when you try to start a cool conversation about Preparedness the average citizen’s mind goes straight to the Extremes above.
Most people who ‘Prep’ as a hobby aim much lower.
Black out * Ice Storm * Chemical Spill * Industrial Explosion
Flooding * Terror Attack * Train derailment * General Unrest
Being prepared means different things to most of our community members. A family of 4 has more needs than a single young person in the same community.
A single young person in a home in a rural community and a single young person on the 32 floor of a condo tower in a major urban center have different challenges.
It usually starts the same way, with no warning and where ever you happen to be.
