Prepare for an Earthquake NOW

If you have not put together an earthquake bedside kit then shame on you.  We have watched the horrible scenes from Haiti for weeks and now we are faced with more views of devastation from Chile.

Do you sit and watch on television and not do anything to prepare your family for an earthquake?  Or do you take action and take some simple precautions?  Are you an ant or a grasshopper?

I have worked in the field of Emergency Management for years and have been involved with preparedness longer than that and am shocked how many people will not take the time to do a few simple things like put 5 items beside their bed.  Please go now to this article Bedside Earthquake Kit right now and follow the instructions.  It only takes five things that could save your life and enable you to respond to your families needs in the aftermath of an earthquake.  Don't be lulled into thinking you live in a safe place.  There is not a safe place on the face of the globe.

I would feel terrible if I had not pushed you once again to put together an earthquake kit.  I only gain by knowing you have protected yourself and are a bit more informed and hopefully would respond in a more educated way.

If you live on a coastline near any body of water, that means ocean, river, lake, stream, pond you could be affected by a tsunami or spillover wave.  There are views available today of tsunami waves in California resulting from the Chili earthquake a whole continent away!  Do you have an evacuation plan?  Do you have some supplies packed that you could grab to escape with?  Have you read and studied your town's evacuation plan?  Did you know they have one?  They do!

What can you do to prepare for any natural disaster?

Update your first aid and CPR
Have a family emergency plan
Have a family meeting place
Store one months worth of food
Store water
Prepare a grab and go kit

Are you waiting till something happens to do this?

Do you want to be a casualty instead of a survivor?

There are readers from over 68 countries that read this blog.   Just think if each of you were prepared how much impact this would have on your community.  Spread the word and pass on this article to everyone you know.

First of all I want to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in
getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
