Hi! I’m Bernie Carr. My husband and I became interested in preparing for emergencies after Hurricane Ike hit our city of Houston. As a wife and mother, I feel very concerned about the uncertain times that we are facing in our country. I want to feel more secure and in control, since I feel we should not rely on the government to help us in any emergency.
Many preparedness sites that I have read gave me good information but much of it is geared toward people who own their homes or have a retreat. While we would love to have a rural retreat, that is just not feasible for us yet. So I needed to do something in order to feel more productive. There are some steps we can take now to become better prepared and self sufficient, while living in an apartment in a large city. I am writing this blog to help not only myself but others who are in the same situation and want to have more control.
Though I am interested in preparing for emergencies and disasters, whether natural or man made, this site is not all about doom and gloom. I believe in being prepared for most everyday life emergencies that are more likely to happen such as unemployment, illness, crime, etc.
I share new things as I learn and try them, in case others out there in a similar situation may have some interest. I post two to three times weekly, sometimes more as time permits.
Thank you for visiting!
