Why is it Important to Prep Anyways?

Well, the answer to this is very simple....stuff happens! If your new to this, you may already have some predisposed notions on what prepping is. First let me tell you what preppers are not.
1. Commonsense Preppers are not crazy or a particularly paranoid group of people. (Despite what you may have heard.. or seen on that doomsday preppers show...although some of them.. whew.... are a bit ...over zealous...is that the right word??....lol)
2. They are not members of an occult and are not hoarders.
3. They do not wear aluminum foil hats and no... they are not awaiting alien invasions... typically...lol
Preppers are simply people who strive to be prepared for disasters, whether they are natural or man-made.
Something to keep in mind is that no one can be 100% prepared for everything...there are just too many "everything's" out there.
But in the event of a disaster (pick your own scenario), YOU can take steps to make sure you and your family are safe.
I challenge you to give critical thought to this topic, because you and your family may one day be affected by a disaster.
If you had 15 minutes to evacuate, would you be ready? Perhaps you live in an area that experiences ice storms that commonly cause power outages, are you prepared to get by a week if need be? Taking little steps now, could mean survival then.
