Ted Rudow III,MA Are you prepared, or have our own warnings to be ready for emergencies fallen on deaf ears? Don't put it off until you have more time. You'll never have more time in a day than you have right now, today--24 hours. Where the rub comes in is just how you choose to use that time.
You're not as prepared as you should have been or could have been if and when disaster strikes, you'll only have yourselves to blame.
You don't have to do a big earthquake prep push, although you can if you want to. Just do a little every week, surely and steadily buying or provisioning a little extra food, setting aside some jugs of water, getting some extra flashlights or camping gear or survival supplies, or spending a little time discussing some contingency plans. Do something, and keep doing something, and almost before you know it, you will be prepared!
