Over the past few months a number of disasters, natural and man made
have occurred in various parts of the state, nation and world.
These include: winter storms, floods, wildfires, earthquakes, tsunami's
nuclear disaster, tornadoes, hurricanes and terrorist acts.
Thus far, our area has been lucky. But, that may not always be the case.
What would you do if water, gas, electricity and telephone services
were cut off, particularly for an extended period of time? If no gasoline
were available? If food store shelves were
empty? If civil disorder and anarchy occurred?
Individuals, households, churches, synagogues and neighborhood
businesses would do well to ponder these questions and prepare for
whatever may come our way today, tomorrow, or
at sometime in the future.
Remember....government can't save us. We must save ourselves
and the government!
