Living anywhere on Earth, you have to be prepared for a natural disaster. Fortunately, in Houston we do not have tidal waves, tsunamis, earthquakes, or many tornadoes. Most of the disaster that happen are fires, floods, and hurricanes. Not saying I would prefer one over the other, but at least with floods and hurricanes you get a bit of time to prepare.
I have previously posted about having a hurricane kit, but what about writing down your plan, updating it, and making sure that your entire family knows the plan.
Along the journey of adoption, we are supposed to do just this. Where do you start? I have an easy start for you. The American Red Cross already has a pdf to get you started.
Also, try Ready Set Go kits. Not only will you find a plan for your family, you will also find one for your pets. You can also find info on how to turn off your gas, water, electricity, ideas on how to teach kids to PROPERLY call 9-1-1, and much, much more.
Even if you are not on the journey to adoption, this is something that could help keep the calm and maybe save a life.
