We should be prepared for what?
Emergencies. Job loss. "Eventualities"... like that earthquake we've been told to expect someday. Illness. Unavailability of water because somebody broke a water main. Power outages, long or short. You name it.
Here's a quick overview of some good recommendations for Personal or Family Emergency Planning
Items to consider may include:
•Three-month supply of food that is part of your normal daily diet.
•Longer-term supply of basic food items.
•Medication and first aid supplies.
•Clothing and bedding.
•Ways to communicate with family following a disaster.

WEEK 1 CHALLENGE:
Create a family emergency contact plan and share it with your immediate family so everyone knows what to do, where/who to call or text, who will be your out-of-state contact, what are the emergency plans at your kids' schools, workplace, how to get people back home...
The link below has a simple form you can use, and the second page of it has cards to fill out with the info you need, for you or your children to carry.
Will you accept the challenge? I'd love to hear what you did.
