    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS: ARE YOU PREPARED FOR ANY DISASTER?

    in Politics Conservative

    WE AMERICANS ARE VERY SPOILED.  NO MATTER WHAT DISASTROUS SITUATIONS WE MIGHT SEE AROUND US, WE ALWAYS ASSUME THAT IT CAN'T HAPPEN TO US.  UNFORTUNATELY, ONCE THE DISASTER STRIKES, IT IS OFTEN TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND WE BECAME DEPENDENT UPON THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP US.


    WE'VE SEEN ALL TOO OFTEN THAT THE PEOPLE WHO COME OUT OF TRAGEDY THE FASTEST ARE THE ONES WHO DEVELOP A PLAN OF ACTION FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.  THEY ARE READY AS MUCH AS THEY CAN BE AND THE DISASTER IS OF MUCH LESS CONSEQUENCE.  LIVES ARE SAVES, LIFE IS ABLE TO GO ON AND THE ENSUING HARD WORK TO RECOVER IS MUCH MORE MANAGEABLE.  AFTER ALL, WHEN WE'RE OUT OF FOOD, WATER AND BASIC SHELTER IT IS HARD TO SURVIVE FOR LONG.


    TODAY THE TYPES OF POTENTIAL DISASTER FACING US HAVE GROWN SIGNIFICANTLY. IN ADDITION TO FLOODS, HURRICANES, TORNADOES AND EARTHQUAKES, WE NOW SEE AN INCREASE IN MOB RIOTING ACTION, THREATS FROM FOREIGN ENTITIES WHO TRULY HATE AMERICA AS WELL AS THE POTENTIAL FOR A DEADLY AIR ASSAULT WHICH EVEN INCLUDES AN EMP BURST.


    IN THIS EPISODE OF NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, MARK COLLIER JOINS ME TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT HORRIBLE EVENT THAT WE HOPE NEVER HAPPENS.  BUT LIFE CHANGES RAPIDLY, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO PLAN AHEAD.  JOIN ME, JAMES DICK, YOUR HOST WITH NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS FOR WHAT I AM SURE WILL BE A ROUSING DISCUSSION.  DON'T BE FEARFUL, JUST REALIZE THE CHALLENGES OUT THERE AND DO YOUR PART TO BE READY.  FOR IN THE FIRST PERIOD OF TIME AFTER A DISASTER, YOU ARE REALLY ON YOUR OWN.  GET YOUR "GAME PLAN" READY. SELF PRESERVATION IS AN INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY MATTER.  YOU OWE IT TO YOUR LOVED ONES TO DO WHAT YOU MUST TO CARE FOR THEM.

    Planning For A Sustainable Future: The Foundation of Disaster Resistance.

    in Environment

    The Planning Process
    An effective hazard mitigation planning process is critical to making your community more disaster resistant. The FEMA programs can serve as the building blocks for this process by providing technical and financial planning assistance to communities. Through the planning process, you can identify the hazards that threaten your community, assess your vulnerability, and build consensus on approaches to reduce future losses. This process leads to the identification of cost-effective, environmentally sound mitigation measures. In fact, the planning process is so critical to the implementation of effective mitigation measures that many of the FEMA programs that are intended to fund mitigation measures, require a mitigation plan as a condition of funding.
