The times are a bit scary now, but I want you to know that there is no need to be afraid. You need to be aware and you need to have some preparation in place to help you and your family. Be proactive in your thinking nowadays. Ask yourself if you have enough fresh food to last at least 4-5 days? Do you have enough canned and dry goods in place to provide food for at least 10 days? Do you have your vehicle filled with gas, do you have any spare water in your house. If you have pets, do you have extra food for them? If you take medicines, do you have refills for this? Do you have Tylenol at home, do you have Vitamins that are helpful for immune function?
These are important questions you should sit down with your family members and discuss who is in charge of the aspects of getting extra food and water, who is in charge of home security, etc. This is something that you need to work together to do and please involve your children too.
