I don’t think there’s a person in the world who hasn’t seen at least one disaster film. I think we all know how the story goes – the disaster happens, people panic and start to prepare for survival, but it’s already to late for them. Those that didn’t see it coming, those that didn’t prepare properly perish first.
There’s a lot of folks who had the chance to experience disaster and live through it. They don’t need any movies to teach them what can happen and how to stay prepared. Many folks in the US had to go through emergency situations – tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes… I’m sure they know how to prepare themselves, I’m sure they have emergency food supply in their home and their shelter.
But what about all of us who never experienced an emergency situation? Are we aware of the implications of a catastrophe? I don’t think so. I see folks who are not burdened by this, it’s like they think the Walmart will be opened at all times so they can get their food and water when they need it. Other people think that having 5 gallons of water and a backpack of food will cover it. This is simply not enough. If you stay without power, you’ll stay without your fridge and you won’t have access to fresh water. You’ll burn through the food and water you have in 2 or 3 days. And then what? You think you will be able to go outside and buy the supplies you need?
If you are one of these folks, I strongly suggest you learn something about emergency food supplies and everything else that might save your life in case of an emergency. Even if you are not interested to learn all the details, to listen to some tips and tricks about survival and being prepared, you can at least buy what the experts are recommending. At least 2 weeks of food and water supply might save your family, don’t hesitate to act now. Tomorrow might be too late.
