Disaster Readiness

Family Disaster Readiness for those of us with limited time & money

Being ready for "the big one" makes life's little disasters go a lot smoother, too.
This site covers the subject in intimidating detail. Just do what works for you.

Readiness is everything in a disaster, be it large or small. Loss and suffering happens before help does.

If you can only do one thing to get ready, keep slip-on shoes by the beds. Disasters are usually followed by running on broken glass with bare feet.
