Today our fourth podcast episode went live over at the Survival Mom Radio Network. We’ve had a fun time with these shows and hope that you guys enjoy hearing from us in a different way every now and then.
In this week’s podcast we cover creating your basic emergency preparedness plan. We talk a lot about the WHY of food storage here, and how to plan, buy and use it. However before getting into that, we recommend being prepared for a short term crisis. Maybe it’s a natural disaster, or an issue where you have to rely on yourself with no outside help for a couple of days. This episode will help you make your plan and you might be able to learn from some of the things we did wrong! As always, please leave any questions or comments in the blog comments!
