Hi, I'm Keith Thomas, and welcome to typical prepping. In recent years we've witnessed an increase in natural disasters such as thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, along with ever threatening manmade disasters ranging from deteriorating infrastructure, hazardous materials, and terrorism. Not since the Great Depression of the 20th century. Has there been a time that begged for the urgency to make emergency plans and preparations to ensure the safety of oneself and family.
Emergency Preparedness simply refers to the steps you take to make sure that you are safe before, during, and after an emergency, or natural disaster. These plans are important for your safety and both natural and manmade disasters.
Emergency Preparedness allows you the opportunity to take responsibility for your own safety and well being to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family.
Hundreds of Thousands of lives are disrupted every year by disasters. Each disaster has lasting effects both on people and property. If a disaster occurs in your community, local responders and disaster relief workers will try to help you but you need to be ready as well. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts somewhere else. You should know how to respond to severe weather or any kind of disaster that could occur in your area, tornadoes, flooding, blizzards, thunderstorms, power outages, fire, hazardous material accidents, or even terrorism. You should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing your own shelter first aid, food, water, and sanitation.
Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that come with disasters. families and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and word seek shelter during a tornado. You should be ready to evacuate your home and take refuge in public shelters and know how to care for your basic medical needs.
