This week is Disaster Preparedness Week. The above picture shows Sophee investigating the American Red Cross Emergency Kit. The most important thing in disaster preparedness is: HAVE A PLAN! Planning should include all of the 'what ifs' such as where you will be when a disaster hits. Will you be at home, at work, on the road or in another state? The options are considerable. At the time of the Northridge quake and the fire in 2008 that forced an evacuation, I was at home. These events predated the Cat Authors.
