Emergency Preparedness - Step by Step
We have been instructed for years to follow at least four requirements in preparing for that which is to come. First, gain an adequate education. . . . Second, live strictly within your income and save something for a rainy day. . . . Third, avoid excessive debt. . . . Fourth, acquire and store a reserve of food and supplies that will sustain life. —
Elder L. Tom Perry
We have a great welfare program with facilities for such things as grain storage. . . . But the best place to have some food set aside is within our homes, together with a little money in savings. The best welfare program is our own welfare program. Five or six cans of wheat in the home are better than a bushel in the welfare granary.

Emergency Preparedness - To-Do Lists
Feeling overwhelmed and out focus? This does not have to be you. Start with the Intro to the right. It will give you an overview of a possible way to tackle getting organized and ready for the unexpected. There are 6 check lists of 20 to do items in each list. Use the lists for your purposes. This is designed to be a help, not a guilt inducing project that adds one more thing to your load. We have done some things and skipped others. Share your concerns with your family, friends, neighbors, and see if doing things together makes it easier.

Click Here for the EPPIC Check Lists Introduction. Each tab has a different check list. Start with 1 and keep going. Remember these are just ideas, if you have a different way to do it and you feel good about it, do it your way. If you can not or do not want to do something, skip it and don’t feel guilty. Do as much as you feel inspired to do and do it in a way that fits your family and your budget. This material comes from www.Iwillprepare.com and was compiled in the Higley Stake some years ago by a member of that Stake (Jon Sherman).
