Prepping for large scale disaster
      #85503 - Wed May 27 2009 11:34 AM

I try to do all the right things for the environment – I drive a hybrid, I ride my bike or walk when I can, I buy all natural products, organics, etc. But I can’t help but worry about what were to happen if what myself, and others do, is not enough. The climate is changing, there are more dangerous storms, and overall more danger out there today. What is being done when it comes to emergency disaster preparedness?? I can only do so much. Is the government doing anything? After all, we don’t want another FEMA situation like in New Orleans. I would like to hear of any news references or websites I can check out that talk about local, US, or even international disasters. We’re all part of the same world; most likely it’s going to call for a joint effort to be as prepared as possible.

The CDC seems to have a fairly comprehensive and user friendly guide to disasters which can be found here:

I hope that helped.

in regards to your post Ackerley, I am defintely with you as we have to do what we can without relying on anyone else.

I DO however see some news here and there about government assistance for hurricane related instances, for example: impact windows This is a fantastic incentive that I have seen in order to encourage S Florida residents to better prepare for storms, wouldn't you agree this is something beneficial?
