In news this week, portions of Joplin, Missouri were scrubbed off the face of the earth by a massive tornado. While this is top-of-mind, we should take a second to think through our disaster preparedness.
Happily, the FEMA has put together a helpful website: Ready.gov. In it you will find plenty of tips on what to have together if a disaster strikes you. Since I have a dog, I found the pet section especially interesting.
While there’s only so much we can do to avoid disasters, we can plan ahead. And have insurance.
