Our approach to educating about disaster readiness is based upon being realistic and with a common sense approach. For example, despite what stereotypes regarding prepping may indicate, we do not advocate any sort of “head for the hills and live off the land” planning. Instead, we focus on simple and often low-cost ways the average person can be better prepared for whatever life may throw their way.
