KISS - Keep It Simple, *@!#**

I loved the picture and wanted to use it but don’t want to insult your intelligence.  Just remember:  “Preparedness, when properly pursued, is a way of life, not a sudden, spectacular program.” Spencer W. Kimball, 1976 

“We can begin ever so modestly.  We can begin with a one week’s food supply and gradually build it to a month, and then to three months.  I fear that so many feel that a long-term food supply is so far beyond their reach that they make no effort at all.  Begin in a small way…and gradually build toward a resonable objective.”  Gordon B. Hinckley.

 

Family oriented

Get your children involved.  Check out the preparedness game for 7-11 year olds.  You can find it here on the RedCross page and download it.  It is called “Monster Guard”, was created by Disney and can be found down toward the bottom of the RedCross page.   It looks like fun.  I got stuck in a corner trying to pick up garbage around the house to keep us safe from fires.  I am sure a 7 year old can do a much better job than I can.  It was created by Disney for the Red Cross to give kids 7-11 a safe place to explore being prepared for an emergency.
