Learn how to prepare for an emergency, whether it is a natural disaster or financial troubles. It is important to have a 72-hour kit, food storage, and emergency plans. An emergency could be a financial struggle within a single-family or something as devastating as a natural disaster. It is hard to know when an emergency will happen, so the best thing to do is to be prepared in the event that something does happen. There are many different levels of preparedness, and having a 72-hour kit is a lot different than having enough food and water to sustain a family for an entire year or more. Emergency preparedness is an important subject, no matter what a family’s situation. Everyone has seen the suffering that happens because of a natural disaster, so getting things taken care of ahead of time will make dealing with emergency situations more bearable.
