I am a worrier by nature. I think it runs in my family, inherited by me from my mother. From the time we are young and in school, we learn how to prepare for emergencies. We practice fire drills, tornado drills in the Midwest, earthquake drills on the West Coast, and countless others. When we get older and start to work, employers have similar procedures in place expanded to include events such as robbery, power outage and chemical spills. In businesses where we shop and eat you can be assured that many have actions mapped out for extreme situations like natural disasters, medical situations, and missing children.
And while it’s great that businesses are prepared like this – are families prepared in their homes? No one wants to think about something bad happening to themselves or their family, the best thing you can do is be prepared. If you are equipped with adequate information and supplies you can avoid panic and react properly if an emergency situation ever happens.
