Dead is Forever! So why spend one minute longer dead then necessary. Greatly reduce your time dead by following witzshared.com to learn how to survive on the job.
I’m concerned that not enough of us are prepared and ready. There have been quite a few natural disasters all over the country in the last year. Hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, tornadoes not to mention Man-made disasters or near disasters like Oroville Dam in California.
Large cities like NYC have fabulous central commands staffed with well-trained people directing other well trained, dedicated folks, ready and able to respond to any emergency. Smaller cities do not have that luxury and even with the heroic efforts of first responders, emergency services can be quickly overwhelmed.
In my town with a population of 121,300 living within 49.5 sq. miles, on any given shift there are only 21 firefighters on duty. That’s 21 to safely handle house fires, car crashes, grass fires, and other emergencies. Throw in an earthquake and now you have 21 firefighters resorting to triage to handle the hundreds of calls that will pour into 911. They can’t count on immediate backup from the other shifts due to the poor conditions of the roads and bridges as many of them live out of town. Mutual aid will not arrive as they’ll be too busy with their own town’s emergencies.
That’s why you need to put an emergency kit together. Make it a family project with each member pitching in. This is also not just for the home but your place of work or your business should also have an emergency kit that everyone knows about. Earthquakes have no clock. Stock it well and keep an eye on expiration dates.
