Being an Eagle Scout, I constantly think of the Boy Scout Motto ”Be Prepared.” I have always believed it is good to be prepared for life – to live happy and without regret. Above all, it is important for me to know that I have done my best in all I have taken on.
With that said, it is important to be prepared for emergencies, especially in this day and age. We cannot always count on the government to bail us out, especially when major emergencies and catastrophes happen. I have come across several excellent documents, which can help us in being better prepared for that possibility. Take a look at them, download them if you want, and share them with your family and friends.
