September – National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. Preparedness means a lot of different things to different people, and this month I plan to write a good bit about what preparedness means to me. I’ve mentioned before that I am an Eagle Scout. I was active in scouting from the first grade, all the way until I graduated from high school. One of the most important lessons I learned from scouting was practical preparedness. We never sat down and had lessons taught to us about preparedness, rather we were allowed to make mistakes, and learn our own lessons.

The first thing that probably comes into most peoples minds when thinking about preparedness, is Hurricane Katrina, as it should. The second thing is probably 9/11, as it should. While doing some research about things that Katrina survivors had to say about preparedness, I came across a blog called The Place With No Name. Admittedly, I’ve not read everything yet, but I can say that this is a great site with first hand accounts of real things that happened before, during, and after Katrina.

I was going to go into a long drawn out blog post about how to prepare, etc, but I’m hooked on reading the above linked blog, so I’ll leave you with that for now.
