What Does Preparedness Mean to You?
Preparedness used to be a word reserved for ‘conspiracy theorists’.
People would think you were a little strange if you were ready at a moment’s notice to evacuate with an emergency kit, or if you stored extra food and water in case the stores shut down due to a natural disaster. That’s no longer the case.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, state emergency management agencies, the American Red Cross, and other leading government and non-profit agencies are consistently delivering the same message to the public: Be prepared.
