From Boil-water advisory issued for the Lower Mainland:
For most of us that crisis will be an earthquake ("the big one"), but tsunami and forest fire are also potential disasters. Hell, even the recent bad weather has caused extended power outages and disrupted transportation!
Have any of you taken specific steps to prepare?
I'm signed up to take some NEPP workshops this fall/winter. Did the Personal Ermergency Preparedness workshop last month. Everything I was told sounded reasonable.
Now it's up to me to get my act together and follow through (get my supplies together etc.). Because I think J_Scott is absolutely right -- in the face of a real emergency most of us are horribly ill-prepared. You beter be able to look after yourself because no one else will be there to take care of you!
