Prepare on warning versus ready in advance

When disaster looms, our society is programmed to react. As severe weather threatens, forecasts go out with warnings, and people rush to the store to get what they need to weather the storm.

But there are flaws with the prepare on warning model. There is a better, more traditional way to be ready even if an emergency comes with plenty of warning. General preparation in advance of warning is the philosophy that carried society through the ages before the advent of complex forecast and warning systems.

Don and I, as follow up to last week's EMP show, will talk about the pros and cons of these different prep philosophies on the next Don and Doug. We'll talk practical advice. You don't have to join a cult or talk in funny acronyms to undertake some common sense steps to protect yourself and your family.

We'll also ease back into some of the current event analysis that shows why being ready is more important that ever. It doesn't have to be an EMP event that shakes your world. It could be something as simple as an early snow storm.

Join us for Don and Doug Thursday at 1pm EDT on
