Whether a wildfire that scorches hundreds of acres or a hurricane that pulverizes the coast nature constantly reminds us of her true power.
Though we may have some very grandiose ideas of what might be and what could be the prospect of what will be i.e. tornadoes and earthquakes is terrifying enough! For this reason, we often glean our best information from real-life survival situations where humans are pushed to their absolute limit and can go no further but must.
Over the last 3 years, we have seen some of the most devastating natural disasters hit our nation. What have we learned?
The Power of Community
Time and time again, when disaster strikes, we see communities of people coming together to help each other survive. Create those close-knit communities today.
A Little Preparedness
Those who took on even a little preparedness did much better in these disasters. Even a little bit can go a long way. Anything you can do will make a difference.
So many people would benefit from a serious evacuation process. The procedure of evacuation is something Americans dont think about till the time is upon them. Take some time to consider a real evacuation plan. Documents, cash, and protection should be part of that plan.
One of the most important realizations is that the government is very limited in what they can do. We cannot depend on FEMA to get us to safety and help us recover our life after a serious disaster.
Having extra cash around to deal with an emergency is very important. Americans are struggling to deal with saving money of any kind. Having a little extra cash can make all the difference when disaster strikes. This is about priorities.
We have learned a lot in three years about disasters in America. It would be a shame if we didn’t act on these revelations.
