Being prepared eases the stress during and after the event, and lessens the possibility of a bad situation quickly getting worse

In his just released eBook "A Practical Guide to Family & Personal Security & Disaster Preparedness", security expert Jim Davies explains the strategies, equipment and supplies a family should have before a disaster strikes.
A tsunami in Japan, tornadoes across the central U.S., floods in Mississippi – what’s next? There are several common types of disasters, but when a warning is issued it is too late to prepare. These preparations need to be done ahead of time. “People in some areas should have storm shelters and in other areas people should have an evacuation plan and know how to prioritize the steps to make it work effectively”, says Davies.
It’s not that difficult to effectively prepare for many disaster situations. For everyone that ends up involved in a disaster, it is easier if more people are prepared. Prepared people have the ability to help friends and neighbors. “Being prepared eases the stress during and after the event, and lessens the possibility of a bad situation quickly getting worse,” explains Davies. Many people worry about being labeled paranoid or a survivalist if they put effort into being prepared. Being prepared is not being paranoid, it’s just being smart.
