So, you've resolved to get going. What's your next step?


Yes, I know, I know, this can seem like a huge task when done all at once, sort of like having to eat a whole elephant. But you CAN DO IT if you do it one small bite at a time. Make your preparedness planning in bite-size chunks. For those with means, you may what it all done in one pop, and that's ok, too.

Here’s What I recommend You do to Get Started:

  • Determine first what you will be preparing for, i.e., earthquake, hurricane, flood, tornado, possible job layoff, bird flu quarantine, etc.

  • Determine what length of time you want to prepare for. A minimum should be 2 to 4 weeks. 1 to 3 months would be better. A year would even be better yet.

  • What will you do about food, water, light, cooking, heat, sanitation, first-aid, etc? Look at the suggestions listed below to get ideas for getting started.

AGAIN, don’t get overwhelmed. Take it in small bite size chunks. Start with planning for 2 weeks and get the needed supplies together. Then progress to 1 month, then 3 months, or however long your goal is. Get your family involved in the planning and preparation.
