Blog 1: Be Prepared!
If you think this post will be about the famous Lion King song, you might be surprised to learn that there are much more important things to prepare for than the death of the king.
Life is full of surprises that are not always what we want. Disasters are one such surprise that can happen in the blink of an eye and leave a lasting impression for years to come. That is why it is so important to prepare to these types of events, in order to make order of the inevitable chaos.
One such website that prepares people for emergencies and disasters of all types is http://www.ready.gov/ . The website has a very simple layout that is easy for anyone to understand. Even if you don’t speak English you can choose one of the 12 other languages offered. The site has links for everything from hurricane and tornado preparation, to nuclear threat and even extreme heat. It even has a link for a kid’s site so that children can be prepared as well. It lays out a simple 3 step process involving getting a kit, making a plan, and being informed. This FEMA sponsored website is overall impressive in the way that it lays out simple, easy to follow instructions, and also simply informs the public of crises that could occur.
If you want to be prepared for anything, keep this website on your favorites page and whenever you hear Scar sing “Be Prepared” in The Lion King, you will know that you are indeed prepared.
