As part of National Preparedness Month we are trying to help raise awareness and help the unprepared masses get a better understanding on why they need to prepare for real-world threats and disasters.
A great way to help your loved ones is to send them some quick facts, and bullet points that help them understand why they need to prepare. A fun and non-threatening way to do that is with these really helpful Infographics. Here are some of the best infographics we’ve found for helping your loved ones understand the importance of emergency preparedness.

The CDC info suggesting a 3-day supply is really conservative.
I agree… we recommend at least 2 weeks worth of supplies. I have always thought the 72 hour recommendations were pretty ridiculous, but I suppose anything helps considering most people don’t even have the recommended 72 hours worth of supplies.
At the very least, I hope it get’s them thinking about what they would do.
I have always prepped, however while on a business trip to Japan I found myself in a 9.0 earthquake and radiation aftermath. I did have on hand my multi tool, small flashlight, lighter, compass, and a couple other items but that was far from what was needed in order to survive. It’s all good until it’s not good, Start prepping.
Thank God the people there (Locals) were so organized, friendly and sharing.
Thanks for sharing your experience, I think it highlights the need to be prepared no matter where you are and how disasters can strike when you least expect them.
Is there an information source where you can determine which freeze dried food products are what they claim to be? I do not want to continue to purchase something that will not last.
Your best bet is to call the company and find out exactly how they are freeze drying the food, how they package it and what guarantees they give on lifespan. I can tell you that I’m not a fan of most commercially made survival food, but I was impressed with the guys at Food Insurance and their knowledge of the industry.
I see that the 3d US healthworker who tested positive for ebola is being allowed to come back to the US via Nebraska. I, also, read he came back wearing coveralls only, no bioprotection from infecting others. He could be the person who will bring the disease…if you believe it can be transmitted via airborne means ….which I do into the US. How is that for the need to prepare? Ebola is normally dealt with in labs in Bio Level 4 protection. CDC recommends mask, gown, double gloves, foot protectors and goggles as a minimum. This guy didn’t even have that.
Ebola was originally created in (or for) the U.S. as a bio weapon, and Africa was used as a testing ground. Ebola even has a U.S. patent number. Look it up.
I think the three days of supplies and water recommendation from the government is laughable. How many disasters only last three days?
It is more like a recommendation to sit and wait for the government to some nanny state preps and have people counting on government assistance, which may actually never come.
If you aren’t prepared to take care of yourself, then you won’t be able to help your family avoid becoming wards of the state, either.
sorry this may not be about preparedness but i thought it might be important to share with everybody. exspeaclly folks with children
That was an awesome infographic that could help people to be prepared in any emergencies.
Very good and useful infographics, thank you!
