September has been set aside as Prepared Readiness month. Just how prepared should we be for emergencies?
Just the other day, we had a power outage around 7:30 a.m. at our house. My wife and I are all about being prepared for power outages, so we had our flashlights located in easy to find areas throughout the house. I made it to the flashlight on the nightstand immediately, so I thought I was pretty smart. Only problem, the batteries were very low, so I started scrabbling for the next flashlight location before my light went out!
