Hey there. My name is Sarah, and I’m new here at Emergency Essentials. I’m happy to be a part of EEI’s mission to “Help People Prepare.” I’m going to be honest with you, though—I’m not prepared. Not even close. And by not even close I mean I haven’t started—at all.
Chances are if you’re reading this you fall into one of two groups of people:
- Those who are already working on emergency preparedness, OR
- People who know they should prepare, but haven’t started yet for whatever reason
If you fall into group number two, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. I felt a little overwhelmed at first when thinking about creating an entire emergency preparedness plan from scratch. But really it comes down to just a few simple steps, and we’re going to go through them together.
I have a boatload of excuses for not being prepared. And as it stands now, I can give you three common excuses for not getting started that apply to me: I’m poor, I don’t have a lot of space, and I don’t know anything about preparedness. Sound familiar? Maybe you (or someone you know) have made similar excuses.
Whatever your reasons for not prepping up to this point, join me in getting started. I’ll be prepping on a budget, keeping small spaces in mind (heads up, urban preppers!), and I’m going to cover all the basics (and then some) just a little bit at a time.
Let’s hear it, folks. Are you new to preparedness planning? Anything you’re dying to learn about? Let me know in the comments!
