Emergency preparedness is a personal as well as a community issue. Individuals, families, small groups and communities need to come together to plan and prepare. Preparation is not just surviving in the near term but planning for sustainability over the long term.
There is an expectation in most of us that the usual conveniences of life such as power, clean water, well stocked grocery stores, 24-hour gas stations, police and fire protection, television and internet, cell phone service and our favorite latte stop will always be there. Do you have access to cash or do you rely on cards and the ATM?
What happens when these services are temporarily disrupted? It usually starts with a degree of panic. What if disruptions run into days, weeks or even months?
