How Ready Are You For a Calamity

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Experiencing a magnitude 6.7 earthquake in the next 26 years is 62% likely to happen. The U.S. Geological Survey warned the public to be prepared for such emergencies that can cause towering buildings to sway and glass surfaces to rattle and possibly shatter. Indeed, the changing environmental conditions are causing commotions especially among people who have encountered such low blows for the first time in their lives.

As the number of victims of natural disasters reached 124.5 million in 2012 alone, the idea of being a prepper has morphed into a mindset and a lifestyle. Being ready for a calamity requires the right information, skills, and tools inside a handy emergency survival kit. To make your preparedness plan more manageable, answer these questions or at the very least, address these safety concerns:

Disaster warnings and unsafe areas in and out of your home

Children are immensely vulnerable in the midst of an emergency. A good way to educate them is to introduce preparedness lessons via “what if” games. Give them visual stories that talk about hazardous spaces and potentially harmful objects like towering furniture that may topple over, a tree that is in a storm-stricken field, or even highly flooded streets.

Teaching your kids to be self-sufficient begins when they know the basics of disaster food kits management. Nothing is more disheartening than to see children cold and hungry. In an age where kids rarely have a good grasp of feeding themselves, cooking food is as good as learning to swim or climbing a tree.

During emergency encounters, adults tend to put their lives at risk in order to save younger members of their household. Sadly, these adults fail to see that should they lose their lives to disasters, the children they leave behind would be facing a higher risk of injury, or even death.
