If an emergency happened to you right this minute, how would you fare?
Think about how much you depend on an ever-present supply of food, water, electricity, and heat, an ability to communicate, a place to lay your head, and an ability to travel.
What if—due to circumstances beyond your control—any one or two of those were lost? What if all of them were lost? What are your chances of survival, based on your current state of preparedness?
While natural or economic disasters pose definite risks, personal emergencies like job loss, divorce, or physical disability due to accident or illness all too often turns the lives of individuals and families upside down, making putting the next meal on the table all the more challenging.
The bottom line is: unfortunate things happen all the time–and you are the first and best defense for helping yourself and your family.
"Do not put off the improbable for the unthinkable. … If there is a one in a million chance of something happening to you then it is happening to 300 people in this country right now." Richard Gist, Kansas City Fire Department
For getting disaster-ready: First, you need an emergency preparedness plan. Here’s an easy Emergency and Evacuation Plan template you can use—just fill in your information and you’re ready to go!
After your plan is in place, you’ll need:
- some water storage
- an emergency kit for each family member
- some food that has been prepared for long term storage
- some skills
- additional supplies and gear
You could compile all of those things, from scratch, on your own. Or you could turn to the disaster preparedness experts, Emergency Essentials. We’re here to help you prepare your family for the unexpected.

You may think of “preppers” as people that aren’t like you. But the truth is, most preppers are just everyday people planning ahead for unexpected circumstances with a bit of food storage, water storage, emergency power, and other supplies that will fulfill their basic needs if somehow their supply to their everyday source of supplies (like a grocery store) is unavailable for a while.
Remember, survival isn’t about luck. It’s about prepping for difficult situations ahead of time, including the survival gear, emergency food storage, water storage, and the other supplies and skills you’ll need in a disaster—whether a natural, personal, or financial disaster.
