While you’re thinking and gathering information, there are things you can get started doing. Make a goal to always have on hand a supply of food and water in your home. Begin by having enough food to last for a week. Then increase that to two weeks or more. Put aside fresh water for an emergency: at least two gallons per person per day for two weeks. Start your preparations for an emergency evacuation kit by gathering any appropriate supplies you already have into a box or bucket. You’ll replace those rough beginnings as soon as you can, but it’s a start.
