Fast Focus: 'What have you done to prepare for an emergency?' Little by little

April 13, 2014 

I am prepared for a small emergency with canned foods (adding more each season with foods canned from the garden), lots of bottled water, first aid kits, flashlights, ham radio, lots of spare batteries, plus odds and ends to shelter-in-place. I'm not as prepared as some, but I can stay in my home for about a month with what I do have (minus a generator). I still have a lot to go to be considered a "prepper," but I am getting more self sufficient as time goes on.
