Preparedness covers a very wide area and we often focus on the most serious aspects of it and don’t post about the smaller everyday emergencies. But today I had someone send me the following e-mail about everyday emergencies and concerns . Here is what they said.
“I used to be completely overwhelmed when it came to stuff around the house, whether I was renting or (recently!) buying. It was hard to know where to start in finding resources to help me, especially when there are all kinds of issues that can crop up and affect quality of life. I have really bad allergies, and mold was actually a huge issue in the last place I rented.
Since I work in public health and I run PublicHealthCorps, I thought it would make sense to assemble some resources that can help keep people safe in the homes… or know where to turn and what to do if some of the lesser known issues come up, ranging from carbon monoxide through – you guessed it – my arch-nemesis, mold.
I see your efforts to empower the public with helpful knowledge (I came across your page here: How Long does EMP or CMP Last?), and I thought these could benefit your audience as well:
It’s my sincerest hope that this information is useful to you and, in turn, your site visitors.
This got me to thinking that occasionally we should post about some of the things that may be helpful to us all in dealing with our small everyday emergencies.
Things like insurances, finances etc. In my past employment, I have seen many young people who after a fire were under the mistaken belief that the building owners insurance would cover their belongings. They didn’t know that they needed to have a tenant’s package, which protects their belongings and ay a normally reasonably priced.
While it is great to prep for the big one, don’t forget, the everyday emergencies that regularly crop up in our lives.
