Let’s get back to basics, and start by defining some terms:
- Emergency: an unexpected and sudden event that must be dealt with urgently; a short-term, possibly life-threatening situation.
- Disaster: an event that causes serious loss, destruction, hardship, unhappiness, or death.
- Survival: the act of remaining alive or in existence, especially after facing life-threatening danger, or of continuing in a present position; day-to-day living over an extended period of time.
Why should you care if you prepare?
When you are properly prepared, you will not be a victim of emergencies or disasters, but able to survive them.
Which brings us to the single most important reason for proactive preparedness:
When you are properly prepared, you will not fear!
It’s as simple as that!
