Mission: To raise the awareness and education level of the families of Texas on the need for disaster preparedness
Description: Unless you have been living in a cave for the last few years, you know this is not the same country that your parents or grand parents grew up in. Just watching a few minutes of world news is enough to depress you for the whole week: Another devastating natural disaster, terrorist attacks, another war looming, a new major bank scandal, another riot, more bloody protests, a mass shooting … one cris…is after another. The world seems to be falling apart. We can choose to completely disregard the ever growing problems facing us or admit that indeed there are some serious issues that deserve our attention. In the last several years, every part of the globe has experienced a dramatic rise in both the frequency and intensity of natural disasters. In the last two years alone we’ve had devastating earthquakes, catastrophic tsunamis, massive flooding, severe hurricanes and storms, record setting heat waves, droughts, snow storms, out of control wildfires, major volcanic eruptions and town leveling tornadoes. All of this can cause disruptions in our daily lives. Even man made events can cause disruptions. Do you take your grocery store for granted? What if food stopped being delivered there? Can you protect and provide for your family when the power fails and the pantry empties out? Our modern cities are giant centers of consumption which cannot sustain their populations without massive imports of resources on weekly or even daily basis. Even with all our technological advances, our food and energy distribution network is still extremely interdependent and fragile. Many awakened recently to this reality because of Super Storm Sandy. The more we watch the news and see what is happening around us, the more we should be thinking about the eventuality of an event that may cause us to rely on some preparations. We want you and your family to be safe. Tune in on Saturday mornings from 10 to 12 and let us empower you for preparation as we discuss many interesting, informative, and timely subjects.
