I'm saying that it's one thing to compile lists based on everything I think or some agency or other source thinks I "need," ...
This is EXACTLY why one should write the Plan
first. Once you establish what the plan is, it's easier to make a kit to support the plan.
I frequently mention, when I am briefing Citizens, that I wear glasses. I need
glasses. I can function without them. I function better with them. I have a plan for glasses.
I don't take insulin. I don't need
insulin. Therefore, I have no plan for insulin.
I don't tell people what they need in their kit. For example, the guidance
is a gallon of water per person per day. If your plan is to subsist on one eight-ounce bottle of water per day, medically, you can do that. You will dehydrate quickly over time. However, you won't die within the first 72-hour period.
Since I realize that the majority of the Citizenship does not have a plan, much less a kit to support it, that's why it's important to me to establish shelter and food for those that don't prepare.
As I tell Citizens, give me 72-hours. I will work hard so you don't go without for 73.
During the disasters I have worked, we had feeding and sheltering within eight hours.
Of course, you have to get out of your car and come in.
All ya'll have a GREAT weekend!
