This poll is just food for thought. You know one of the biggest roadblocks to preparedness planning is the notion that “it won’t happen to me.” Most folks don’t believe that they will really find themselves in a situation that will require emergency preparedness plans. I can understand the perspective that this is all overkill “Chicken Little, the sky is falling” stuff.
But keep in mind that emergency preparedness doesn’t just support you and your loved ones during catastrophic end of days events. What about a fire in the home? What about the winter storm survey scenario? What about a tornado or hurricane? Are we at risk for scary life-altering terroristic events? Sure. We all witnessed the tragedies of September 11th. But have you internalized what the hurricane Katrina or tsunami victims really endured? Have you thought about what good ol’ Mother Nature can do on a whim?
Think about your answer to this poll. What category do you fall into? Which one would you prefer to fall into? Is it worth some effort, planning, and strategizing to get yourself there? I sure hope so.
Let me know what you think…
