In this day and age there are many things that can occur that require us to be prepared. From weather to terrorist
attack, the prudent person is one who ensures that they and their family are as prepared for the worst as they can
be. When disaster strikes, YOU are the first responder when it comes to your family. Government help, while it
may come, will likely be delayed for days, even weeks or months, depending on the magnitute of the disaster. (Witness the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.) Below are some links that may aid you in this task.
