Getting Started: Defining What "Being Prepared" Means to You

I'll admit, I'm not an expert in being preparedness. But between my career and where we live, it's an inevitable part of our lives.

I've learned a lot while being becoming part of this world. It certainly seems like an overwhelming or daunting tasks when you're getting started.

The most important thing to remember is that "being prepared" means something different to every family. It's not one size fits all and it doesn't need to be. You need to define what's best for your family and what being prepared means for you.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself:

1. What are the things your family cannot do without?

2. What do you want to be prepared for? 

3. What would give you "peace of mind" in an emergency?

4. Who is responsible for what in an emergency?

5. How important is being prepared to you?

6. What concerns do you have in your area?

7. Are there any limitations to getting prepared?

8. What would make life more enjoyable or manageable for your family in an emergency?

We'll cover each of these questions in upcoming blog posts. They will help you outline what's right for your family and define your personal emergency plan.
