If you have a pet, is it included in your The Lost Ways Review preparedness plan and is its food included in your kit? (Hint: experts are now suggesting that you evacuate with your pets knowing that pets will not be allowed in human shelters.)Being able to answer the above questions is key to retaining some sort of confidence should tragedy occur. Granted, they're not fun questions to ponder on, but they are empowering once answered.Let's say tomorrow at 1:00 in the afternoon while the kids are in school and adults are at work, a fire/flood/tornado/ earthquake strikes. Going home is not an option, everyone is told to stay either where they are or evacuate.

Many people, especially parents, can shy away from discussing subjects like this for fear of traumatizing their children. They imagine discussing in somber tones what the children should do if mom and dad are crushed by a falling ceiling or tagged by a stray power line.As with all things including children, make it fun! Discuss locations for meeting places. Let them choose emergency meals and practice making them! Take them to a thrift store to buy snappy emergency clothes they will look forward to wearing should their closet be whisked away to the next county.

News stories report on disasters everyday. It is unfortunate the number of people who were unprepared and suffered greater losses because of it. Many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints have worked together to come up with various solutions and creative ways to be "more prepared". Outlined below are some basic things recommended in case of an emergency.

First of all, have a plan. Know what options are available. If your family gets separated, where can you meet? If you know your house will not provide adequate protection, where else can you go? Being an active member in your community and in your church will provide you with more options, explore them. Create plans with neighbors, extended family and people within your ward. Be willing to help out others in need, such as an elderly neighbor or disabled friend.
