Let’s Get Prepared! Day 30 – What Have You Accomplished, and What is Left to Do?

Day 30 of the Let’s Get Prepared! Challenge, and it is our wrap-up post! Twenty-one posts this month were designed to help you make improvements in your home and your readiness for disasters and emergencies. From planning to preparing to dealing with repercussions, we’ve explored this important world from many directions.


Some of these may have seemed more challenging than others, and some you may have said, “Yeah, this is important, but I just can’t get to it right now.”  So, I’ve created one easy post for you to bookmark or email to yourself and put dates in your calendar to continue to focus on this important part of life.
