The greatest prep that is lying just under the radar are the communities across the nation. Who suffers when disaster strikes? Who are the first people to help? Your neighbors, right? They are more your disaster allies than anyone from FEMA. That is not to knock the government agency but merely to state a fact. I think cohesion in our communities will not only help us be better prepared for disasters but will also deal with this growing rift in our country today.
This article offers up some community projects that can help engage readers on ways to break the ice or projects that offer up real opportunity. We need to have a dialogue about disaster in our communities. You don’t need to tell everyone you are a prepper but its time we talk about disaster.
