Be Prepared: Disaster


 

Be Prepared: Disasters

Ask yourself if YOU are afraid of:

  • Monsoons, tsunamis, floods
  • High winds, tornadoes, hurricanes
  • Sandstorms, heat waves, wildfires
  • Mud slides, avalanches, earthquakes
  • Long freezes, blizzards, ice storms
  • Major storms, lightning, forest fires
  • Power outages, blackouts, Electro Magnetic Pulse
  • Water outages, poisoned water supplies, dam ruptures
  • Civil disorders, racial violence, civil war
  • Foreign invasions, international war, World War III
  • Tactical nuclear weapons, atomic bombings, Mutually Assured Destruction
  • Asteroid strike, Armageddon, The End Of The World As We Know It

For many people, Disaster Preparation is based on FEAR. Listen to this, and learn it well: You do not need to FEAR ANYTHING on the list you just read.

Why? Because if any of these things happen, there’s nothing you can do to prevent it! Like everyone else involved, you’ll just be along for the ride.

As you make your preparations to survive a disaster or an emergency situation, do it calmly. Worry about the things you can change, and change them.

Don’t fret or fear the things you have no control over. If you’re afraid, you are more likely to make bad decisions.

If you have a plan for your preparations, and if you follow your plan – you’ll be much, much better off than someone who panics when disaster strikes.

PUT AWAY YOUR FEARS. They are no help to you! If you are prepared, you need not fear.
