Being ready for major disasters or any disaster means being self-reliant. Natural disasters continue to increase across the globe.

Facing the fact that a disaster could happen and taking steps to counter that threat is smart. Major disasters happen all the time. The question you need to ask yourself is will I be ready?
There are many ways to be ready for a major disaster you just have to be willing to prepare yourself and those you care about.
Number 1 reason folks do not prepare
#1 “Nothing had ever happened here so why bother?”
Almost every location on the surface of the planet has experienced a natural disaster at some point. If you have insurance for your vehicle or home, but have never had to make a claim, why bother? Being prepared is similar to having insurance, it only takes one event for you to realize that having insurance was a necessity. The same is true with being ready for a disaster. It only takes one event to change your world. Not having insurance may not devastate you, but what if someone you love or care about dies or is seriously injured because they were not ready? When disaster strikes it can absolutely have a life altering impact on you.
