Prepared Not Unprepared - The Ready Center

Below is a link to a very short narrative sharing two fictitious conversations that take place immediately after an EMP attack on the United States. One conversation is between a husband and wife who are prepared for disasters. The other is between a husband and wife who are NOT prepared for disaster.

Although it is a very short read (3-5  minutes), it does an excellent job of communicating the possible realities of those who prepare, and those who do not.  Enjoy.

And as always, if we can help you and your family prepare in anyway, we would be honored to do so.

The Ready Center Lipton Cup-a-Soup

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

$1.25.  That’s all this box of goodness cost the other day at my local Kroger store.  There are 4 instant soup envelopes in it and when the conditions are just right, they are FANTASTIC!  Don’t let the front picture fool you though, you’re not getting luscious chunks of great chicken in there… more like chicken pellets, but it’s good all the same.

Recently I’d been out all afternoon snowshoeing through the woods dragging my son through the snow on a sled while he was dragging his arms through the loose snow around him.  I came back to the warming hut where they have cold sandwiches (oh yay), hot cocoa (that’s better) and these babies!  I emptied the contents of one envelope into a Styrofoam cup, poured some hot water over the top and suddenly, I was in the land of sweet chicken noodle soup.  It wasn’t my mom’s homemade stuff, but man, this hit the spot.

If you’re like most people, when it comes to preparing for a disaster or emergency, it can be really easy to become overwhelmed.  What exactly do I need?  How much do I need?  Where do I buy it?  What am I preparing for again?  And where do I start anyways?  If any of this sounds at all familiar, you’re not alone.  As a matter of fact, you’re in good company.

We are beginning a 4 part series titled, “Starting with the Basics”, in which we hope to aid those who are new to the preparedness scene and are looking for a place to start.  We have broken it down into what we are calling the “The 4 Basic Prepping (more…)
