Pandemic Awareness

Lately I have been thinking more and more about our family's preparedness. In our church we are counseled to store food and water and other essentials. We have tried to follow these guidelines with our family. We have been working on updating it recently. One of the things that is always a possibility is a pandemic. With the recent news about a possible pandemic starting in Mexico and now spreading to the USA, I have been thinking again about how important it is to be prepared. If a pandemic starts, there is a very real possibility that authorities could quarantine people to their homes. Are we prepared that we could get by without having to go to the store?

Here is an article about the new flu that is raising fears:

and here is a link to the Provident Living site:

Finally, here is the Link for the government's site:

I hope and pray there is no need to worry, but pandemics have been something the human race has dealt with for centuries, and we most likely will again, so it is best to be prepared.
