What We're All About

Preparedness refers to a very concrete research-based set of actions that are taken as precautionary measures in the face of potential disasters. These actions can include both physical preparations and trainings for emergency action. Preparedness is an important quality in achieving goals and in avoiding and mitigating negative outcomes. There are different types of preparedness, such as public health preparedness and local emergency preparedness or snow preparedness, but probably the most developed type is "Disaster Preparedness", defined by the UN as involving "forecasting and taking precautionary measures prior to an imminent threat when advance warnings are possible". This includes not only natural disasters, but all kinds of severe damage caused in a relatively short period, including warfare. Preparedness is a major phase of emergency management, and is particularly valued in areas of competition such as sport and military science.

There won’t be a natural disaster in my life-time, everyone is worried about nothing,

it’s just a hype.


THE TRUTH: It’s not a matter of if something is going to happen, but when. We’re long overdue for a major earthquake and being prepared the best way to protect yourself

and your family.

FEMA and other emergency services will help me with food, water, shelter, etc within 72 hours

if there was a disaster. I don’t need any supplies.


THE TRUTH: Following a disaster, a community may be on their own for a period of time because of the size of the area affected, lost communications, and impassable roads. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.

Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, loss, and sometimes avoid the danger completely.

OUR SOLUTION: As a company we conduct emergency preparedness presentations to equip

households, support community resilience, and strengthen the continuity of government.
