About This Site

The short version: Being ready for a disaster, be it something large scale like a major earthquake or something more personal, is something we’re all told to be prepared to handle. We’re given a lot of well-meaning, but confusing (and scary) advice by the authorities and the news loves to scare us with the latest disaster footage. Where do you begin to be ready for all of the risks out there? How do get to a state of “being prepared” without wasting thousands of dollars? How do live safely without letting the paranoia drive you into permanently living in a bomb shelter?

The fact is there are a lot of things you can do that will significantly improve your odds in an emergency and they don’t have to be expensive or time consuming. My goal with this site is to collect some ideas and best practices that will make it easier for “regular people” find that balance of being ready for trouble, but without negatively impacting their lives.
