The winter season in the U.S. has been extraordinarily cold and snowy. The NFL actually postponed a regular season game for being too cold! Even here in Colorado where our temperatures rarely go below zero degrees in the winter; we have had record setting low temperatures that closed schools and businesses. The surprising thing to all of this is every time a disaster happens; many people are caught off-guard. Not prepared. It is amazing to me that we; U.S. citizens; continue to get caught with our pants down by fires, hurricanes, snowy blizzards, cold weather, floods…etc.

I am here to help enlighten, teach, guide or just plain out point you in the right direction to Emergency Preparedness.

The following is an excerpt from the Citizens Corp webpage:
