Day 1

We live in uncertain times, from natural disasters, extreme weather, prolonged power outages, terrorism, pandemics or major changes in the political, social or financial sectors of our economy.
Learn how to take care of yourself and your families in any emergency. So how do you go about safeguarding yourself and your families from the harm of a prolonged emergency situation?
There are literally hundreds of thousands of people who look at things a bit differently than they did a few years ago, and are now taking sensible precautions to help save and preserve life in an emergency.
