Lots of info out there now on how to be prepared and quite a few lists on what to have on hand and sometimes even where to buy.
ICE4SAFETY.COM will be providing a more micro view of some of the more essential macro topics - starting with many of the most important. Labels will begin with Prep Tips and then the Subject for easy searching.
Many people cannot stomach the task of even discussing being prepared much less read long reports on what to have on hand and what to do. This will take some time, but it is simply just one additional way to get it done for those who just can't stand the thought of being prepared (the reasons why are a personal issue)
Another option is to join in conversations with certain survival-oriented blog sites but many people prefer not to go that route - and sometimes the discussions can go off track.
FEMA has improved their website resources but if you want to do it yourself (DIY) and be ahead of the curve maybe this will help. We will get info from a variety of sources and personal experiences. So, if the suggestion to have food, clothing and shelter on hand just doesn't cut it for you then stay tuned.
