Your Survive And Thrive Preparedness Plan

Preparing for a crisis can seem overwhelming at first, but when you get educated and implement a game plan, you will feel less stress and more secure.

Read through each section, and then categorize your ‘TO DO’ list according to priority.

Have a section for things that need to be done immediately, during the next 30 days and during the next 6 months.

Time is short my friend, and once a crisis hits, it’s too late to prepare.

One note when it comes to being prepared, redundancy is very important with critical things like water filtration, knives, sources of light and fire, etc.

Two is one, and one is none“, meaning if one breaks, you’re okay.
