TEOTWAWKI in September

September is National Preparedness Month and it's design to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, business and communities.
So let's test ourselves with some HOMEWORK.

Only two ways to know if your plan really works:

1. Conduct an exercise.
2. Have a disaster.

At home, pick a weekend, and pretend Friday was a normal day and Saturday you woke up to TEOTWAWKI (no water, no electricity, no gas, no dish network, no A/C, no car, credit cards don't work, no phone-use it just for emergency).
Live of your existing supplies Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday, with your family, you can address your weaknesses and strengths, and see how really ready you are.

Note: This is just a pretend scenario. If there is someone in your family that needs constant medical supervision/care, please take the necessary steps to ensure their well being.

    This was a great learning experience! Putting things to the test really opens your eyes.

    This is very much needed! Having the scenerio in your head but not actually going through it doesn't work...practice, practice, practice!

    I'm a maybe but the thought of an emergency is horribly frightening.. as of last week I use oxygen 85% of the time. I'm active & relatively young and dont have a clue what I'll do in an emergency (I quit smoking 15 yrs ago-it was too late though)
