Stop Procrastinating – Consider 26 Weeks to Emergency Ready


While Hurricane Sandy is the story today, lets not forget the earthquake in B.C. on Saturday. The massive 7.7 was the third largest ever recorded in Canada. Scores of aftershocks, some as high as 6.4 continue to shake the Pacific coast.

Most people think of themselves as invincible. The not in my backyard attitude is simply not going to prepare anyone for the unexpected. We are given a few days warning to prepare for a major storm. I can guarantee that other than stocking up on water and canned food or batteries: most people wouldn’t have a clue where to begin. If a major earthquake hit a populated area, ponder getting by with no emergency plan or supplies.

Time to stop procrastinating. This is an easy way to find a starting place, a way to spread out the cost, and the perfect platform to involve your entire family.The link below gives you a task a week for 26 weeks.
