Remove the stigma of paranoia from preparedness. Preparedness means confidence. Confidence means peace of mind. Your family's preparedness plan can be put together in a single afternoon. No one ever thinks about disaster striking their home or town, but it's important to have the confidence of being ready.
September is National Preparedness Month, sponsored by FEMA. The theme of the month is "Don't wait. Communicate." Communication is your most vital tool during an emergency. Having a plan in place, simple or complex, can save lives and at the very least, ease the tension of dealing with emergencies.
