There are several things we can learn from this month and one of them is the importance of having an emergency plan. If disaster strikes, its not your fault but knowing how to prepare for one is beyond invaluable.
Think about what kind of disasters are most likely to happen in your area. Have out of town emergency contacts. Think about what kind of foods will last through a disaster and give you the necessary nutrition to make it through the aftermath.
Most importantly, know that we will need to rely on each other in order to survive. When we support each, we will be stronger.
