[HAZARD] - Are you ready? Part 3 of 5 - The CSZ
Second: What can you do about events such as these?
So, when a really major disaster occurs:
- Do you know what to do?
- What is the first thing you think of?
- Do you run into the street blindly without a destination in mind?
- Do you barricade yourself in your closet with your fingers stuffed in your ears while humming loudly?
NO YOU DON’T!
All of us should prepare for abnormal events such as the CSZ, so lets talk about what it means to actually get prepared for the time when something horrible happens. If you are fortunate enough to live in a geologically stable location your preparations don’t need to include this scenario. Just do what every good prepper does (see below). However, if you happen to live in the danger zone of a major fault you have a plan to create and exercise!
It is the plan that is essential for the family because without one the natural tendency is to run around trying various things, most of which will result in unfortunate outcomes for you and the ones most important to you.
What I’m about to describe summarizes a process that has been developed, and used by the Emergency Management community with great success. Nothing here should be foreign to a mature prepper. Beginners and intermediates take note, this is what it means to be prepared!
“Buying stuff is NOT preparedness, having a plan, a team, skills and resources appropriate for the plan is.”
Preparedness is having a plan, a team, skills, and resources required by the plan.
