Between the hurricanes and the wildfires its clear that we are dealing with something that is not going a way. Well, I guess you could say its a few things. The first being the fact that more humans than ever are in the way of mother natures wrath.
Before there were million dollar homes in the hills there were wildfires. Of course, the flames would roll through and the forest would grow back.
Now, Teslas get torched and people are put in harm’s way. That makes headlines.
Aside from the fact that we are facing a new age in disaster preparedness, hopefully, an awakening, we are also coming to the realization that having a serious plan of action for evacuation is going to be crucial going forward. Now, as a nation, we need to give prepping and evacuation the time and effort it deserves.
In California, we saw 190,000 Americans rush from homes. Some just as the fires were coming over the hills. It’s an ugly thing and something that we all must deal with. We have to come to the realization that we are frail and vulnerable but we have big brains and resources to contend with that. It’s the story of us.
If we take the hurricane seasons over the last two years along we can account of 10’s of billions of dollars in damage and so many Americans displaced. Who knows what was lost that can never be replaced.
The time for disaster preparedness has come to our nation and the world. While there are more popular and more fun things to do with our time that doesn’t mean they are the right things. The storms are literally coming and they come every year.
Evacuation needs to become a well-oiled practice in your own home. It should include bags for the whole family and a checklist of items that must be taken. Don’t wait till the last minute.
