Disaster Proof Your Life: How To Be Ready for Any Emergency

The goal of the post is to help jumpstart anybody who wants to start their path to planning and preparation for emergencies.

Check out Laurie’s guest post Disaster Proof Your Life: How To Be Ready for Any Emergency, and start your path of planning and preparation for emergencies, and help others to do the same.
