Prepare, don't React! Every year America has Floods, Power Outages, Tornados, Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Winter Storms, and Droughts in several areas of the country. Since we KNOW these events WILL happen each and every year, the question isn't why prepare; but Why Wouldn't YOU prepare? Once an emergency happens, it is too late. If you haven't prepared your survival will depend on reacting and luck. Those of us who are prepared have a significantly better chance of surviving than those that are not! Preparing is a process, not an event, you should add to your preparations one month at a time.
