Why Should We Prepare?
People in general are unprepared. Even ‘preppers‘ get caught off guard when something unexpected happens or when they are so used to certain disasters happening, and then the same disaster comes but with greater destruction than before.
It has been recommended many times and by many people that we should have 72 hours worth of supplies which is just not right, especially today. You can’t expect the government to get to you within 72 hours following a major event when the main priorities will be the hospitals, government buildings, etc. 72 hours just isn’t enough and you must start with at least a 10 day supply.
It is your responsibility to make sure that your family survives. You can’t rely on the government, crisis response teams or even your neighbors, it is down to you!
I am not just sharing this for new preppers but also those that have spent so many years following the advice of the government. Everyone must rethink their disaster preparedness!
You cannot expect something like a major storm to only create the same amount of damage as all the other times that it has happened. You must always prepare for the worst-case scenario.
It is always better to have too much and not need it than to have too little when you need it the most. Expect the worse and do not be surprised by the unexpected. You must plan for the unexpected and have alternative plans in place should they be needed.
