Friday Question=Are You Prepared?


I use to be a disaster spoke person for American Red Cross. With so many types of disasters happening around the world, it got me thinking. Do you know what type of disasters you could face, and are you prepared for it?
Let's make a List of ones happening in today's world;
  • Tornado's
  • Hurricanes
  • Floods
  • Earthquakes
  • Tsunami's
  • Nuclear
  • Fires
  • Chemical explosions
  • Sink Holes
  • Gas Explosions


All of these are very commons today. You would be surprise at the ones that can happened where you live and work. So the question remains.... Do you know which ones can happened where you live and work and what to do in the disasters? Can you survive any of them?

The answer for me is a live and work in an area that can have floods, Hurricanes, Tornadoes,Earthquakes, fire, gas explosions, chemical spills, Gas Explosions, sink holes, and fires.To be prepared I have a first aid kit, and an area where I always keep me purse and an everything bag. Ready to grab at all times. All my numbers and info in those things. My car is always filled with gas and ready to go. A couple way to escape and a few places to go. I need to work on have a meeting place and a three month supply of prescription meds that my hubby. is on.

  1. No I don't know what we are likely to have...(other than tornados) and I would say I am not prepared.

  2. We are prone to hurricanes and live close to the gulf.
    We try to prepare, but need to do family drills etc.

    At this point I'm worried about fire and even a break in and want to teach my kids skills on how to get out the house fast!

    Aloha!

  3. Only somewhat prepared - but for something major? Not so much. :)

  4. We recently had to evacuate during the recent tsunami warning in Hawaii. We had the basics but we're lucky that my parents live nearby and they're always prepared!
