Get prepared, people! Despite all the movies and the books and the talking heads, the world did not end in 2012. But it did change. It has been changing. You need to learn to be self-sufficient. We take a lot of things for granted. There will be disruptions in these things whether it’s electricity, the internet, or other types of things, but it’s all for you to learn to be self-sufficient. It’s harder in the cities because people are so used to convenience. Learn how to “urban camp”. The best thing to do is to figure out how much food you would need for a week and set it aside. What if you couldn’t go to the grocery store, what would you do? What would you need? Just by thinking through these things you start to get prepared and then by physically doing it, you become prepared. The storage and that kind of thing it also puts a mindset forward that makes it less harsh. So when the emergency happens it’s not this big panic, because you know what to do and you just do it until stuff comes back. The more people are prepared and the less people panic the easier it will be to get through the disaster. Disaster preparedness is a time to bring people together to support each other instead of being so self-absorbed.
