The past week of water contamination emergencies and burst pipes in my area due to winter storms has inspired a weird idea.
How about . . .
Not that this is anyone’s view of a good time, but it’s something we should all do, at least on a basic level. So, for this first Prep-Along, we’re going to follow the FEMA requirements found at www.ready.gov. Exciting right? Let’s follow a government program together….YAY!
Well, it’s a way to take something boring and try to make it fun anyway, right?
Here’s the set up:
- If you want to join in, declare your intentions in the comments section of this post.
- Then, every week I’ll post a new prep-along “assignment” for us to complete over the course of that week.
- As we prepare together, report on your progress, either in the comments section or, if you have a blog, you can link in comments to a post where you discuss any issues.
- In 8 weeks, we’ll all show off our progress.
To spice things up, not that we’ll need it with all the exciting government pdf’s to read, we’ll have a couple of giveaways along the way. I think an emergency preparedness book would be lovely, and, if we get really fancy, some hand-crank flashlights. WOW!
Are you up to the challenge?
