If you don’t know “Do 1 Thing“, you should. This is a program that’s based on the idea that if you do one thing each month for emergency preparedness, you’ll be 12 times better prepared than if you do nothing at all.
The idea (we assume) is that it’s easier to eat an elephant one bite at a time than to sit down and eat the whole thing at once.
Their “one thing” for November is Emergency Supplies. These include batteries, flashlight, cash and medicines, but there are many others. Go visit their site for more details.
Here’s a thing you should also do – sign up for your local emergency alert system. If you don’t know where to go, just click on USNEAR.org and sign up there so you’ll be registered anywhere in the US with emergency alert service.
