Preparing For Emergencies

What resources do you use when you are preparing for emergencies?

There have been many events occurring around the globe in the past few days and I have been following many of them with great interest. Some of these events affect us directly and others indirectly, but I prefer to be informed so I can make the best decisions for my own family.

Using Technology To Prepare For Emergencies

I have found myself using technology to keep informed about the things happening around the globe and having access to technology (internet, computers, tablets, cell phones, etc) has helped to give me information that I need to prepare for and survive an emergency or natural disaster.

Here are some of the resources that I have been using to follow the emergencies (earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes) of the past week.


If you have access to the internet, then you have access to all these free resources that can give you important information in the event of an emergency.
