Why Prepare for a Disaster?

Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects—people are seriously injured, some are killed, and property damage runs into the billions of dollars.

If a disaster occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations 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 elsewhere. Americans everywhere are turning back to their roots and preparing for potential disasters themselves. Preparing for the inevitable disaster has recently become a big movement. Sometimes called “Prepping”, Americans have returned to becoming self sufficient in cases of emergency.

At the very least, being prepared and understanding what to do reduces fear, anxiety and gives families a sense of security. Communities, families and individuals should know what to do in a crisis. There are two main methods for dealing with a crisis. You should be ready to evacuate (Bugging Out), or shelter in place (Bugging In). Simply having a Pack with important papers, survival items, and some hygiene necessities can mean a big difference if you have to evacuate to a shelter. “Be Prepared” is no longer just for Boy Scouts.

Recent history has shown that public shelters are not appropriately stocked with supplies or staffed for security. This has led to the current trend in our society for families to prepare for their own survival. Each scenario requires proper planning. Even large box stores are selling long term dehydrated food supplies and canned food rotation systems. Prepping is no longer “crazy”. It has become serious business.

You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area—hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold or flooding, and yes, even terrorism. You should plan to be self sufficient for at least three months, and maybe more. Although the situation may stabilize sooner than this, the size of the crisis may prevent many public services from being restored in a short time.

More information on Emergency Survival can be found on our web site, and our Facebook Page, http://www.facebook.com/ESOutfitter . Being prepared, understanding your risks and taking steps to reduce those risks can reduce the damages caused by hazards.

Undertaking the adventure of preparing yourself and your family can be overwhelming at first. Take it step by step, and sooner than you think, you will have a good supply of supplies and equipment to make it through a crisis. The first thing you need to have is a plan. We can help you from the planning stage to final implementation.
