Why our role matters
With the ever-increasing rate of natural and man-made disasters, every human being needs to be and deserves to be prepared; additionally, they need the ability and assistance to recover from a disaster.
The best way to answer the question “Why our role matters?” is by asking the following questions (1-6) and providing an answer to each:
How would you survive a terrorist attack that caused widespread panic and the shutdown of all shops and stores in your area? Would you be forced to beg neighbors for food or be sent to food lines or possible FEMA camps?
Could you and your family survive hurricanes or snowstorms that resulted in your neighbors and friends going into a panic-buying frenzy – grabbing any food they could get their hands on? In some cases, stores aren’t restocked for weeks!
How would you live during weeks of “rolling blackouts” making it impossible to store food or for stores to get more food in stock?
What would you do if your home was hit by floods, washing out roads, and making it impossible for stores to supply food for weeks – would you survive? Where would you go? What if it happened while your kids were at school?
How would you deal with civil unrest, where mobs formed in your neighborhood while you were at work? What is your plan?
What would you do if an earthquake rocked your home and disrupted all abilities to get supplies in or out?
Our role is to prepare you for the above scenarios, to recover from the above scenarios, and much more.
Now think of any disaster that you can imagine. Are you prepared? How will you respond?
The above scenarios are a small sample of real-life occurrences. Our role is to prepare you and your family for any disaster/emergency that may occur.
