Proactive Preparedness: Setting the Scene …

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!
