3. Have support
Lets face it. Emergency preparedness and food storage aren’t something many people enjoy talking about. As you saw with the COVID-19 pandemic, people panicked and it took over a month for some people to find toilet paper. (crazy sauce!). Have community or even support to help answer all of your questions about preparedness and food storage can be a HUGE help.
I know disaster preparedness can be overwhelming. But just taking a few of the steps above can really jump-start your emergency preparedness.
