Being Prepared for a Crisis or an Emergency - The 90% Solution

The advantages of being prepared for a crisis or an emergency should not be overlooked. Knowing that you will be ready if a disaster or sudden crisis should strike unexpectedly is a very comforting feeling. Being well prepared to handle a crisis or an emergency is the best insurance you and your family can have. With proper planning, you can solve 90% of your problems before a crisis happens.

One of the biggest advantages of being prepared is the peace of mind that being prepared gives you. Having a plan in place to handle a crisis or an emergency isn’t that difficult to accomplish but it can reward you with a sense of well-being that is hard to beat. Even when you consider all the different “what if’s” that could occur, you will at least have a plan in place that will allow you to respond to the vast majority of situations in a practical manner.

It’s important to develop different techniques and strategies for surviving a crisis or an emergency that will allow you and your family to remain intact and safe. In the vast majority of cases, you may already have the necessary resources to survive. You will need a plan to effectively manage those resources until more become available. This requires planning and that normally involves time and effort on your part to be successful. Being prepared is about being ready for the unexpected events that can happen in our lives.

Proper planning will also give you the ability to handle a crisis if your resources become limited. Even if the unexpected does happen, you can have a simple guideline in place that will allow you to respond to the crisis in a responsible and positive manner. This will help you solve the vast majority of problems in a crisis or emergency before they reach a critical stage.  

Got a plan?

Staying above the water line!
