Making a Preparedness Resolution for the New Year

January 04, 2019

We sincerely hope that 2019 will be a disaster-free year of peace, happiness, and stability. Would we bet on it?  Probably not.

Many people make resolutions for the new year about losing weight or being healthier.  If you are reading this blog, chances are that you could benefit from adding a resolution to improve your preparedness this year.

So, what does a preparedness resolution look like?  It’s simple - we often know the things we need to do to become more prepared, but dedicating the time, thought, and budget can make follow-through it just as hard as other resolutions that seem to disappear by February.

Start with a commitment to make or improve a preparedness plan for you and your family.  It costs nothing but time, but is the most essential aspect of preparedness.  Focusing on your plan helps with the preparedness mindset in the same way athletes visualize their performance before competition.

If you are new to preparedness, we offer many free resources on our site to help kick-start your preparedness plan.  If you already have a preparedness plan, resolve to make it better.  We also offer professional consulting for preparedness planning at any level.  Pro athletes didn’t get to their level without pro-level coaching.

A well thought out preparedness plan inevitably leads to a realization that you will also need to set a budget for yourself and family.  Resolve to set aside an amount that makes sense based on your needs and resources.  If you haven’t done so yet, take some money out in cash, put it in your go-bag, and consider it an insurance policy.  If you do not yet have a go-bag, we would be happy to help you find one that meets your needs.  We have a large selection in our store.

 A plan, a go-bag, and a stash of cash is the perfect foundation for preparedness.  Give us a call at 1-833-2B-READY or send us an email at consulting@readynation.com to let us know how we can help make your preparedness resolutions a reality.  Happy New Year!

Updates from the Middle East
Updates from the Middle East

Preparedness here in the Middle East is a way of life in a way that almost makes us envious - people here do not take for granted clean and ever-available food, water, electricity, security, or stability.  Nearly every building has a large water tank on top of it, solar heaters and generators are more prevalent than we would have thought, and it is very common for folks here to own gas and/or propane generators.  Walls are thicker and sturdier, and families know what to do if a protest erupts or services are interrupted.  We can learn a lot from this - living in a comfortable environment does not negate the need for preparedness.

Homeland Security Admits Russia Hacked U.S. Critical Infrastructure

March 15, 2018

Today, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's US-CERT (Computer Emergency Readiness Team) published a groundbreaking alert in which the U.S. Government, for the first time, publicly accused Russia of hacking U.S. critical infrastructure. The alert warned that Russian cyber actors were targeting, "U.S. Government entities as well as organizations in the energy, nuclear, commercial facilities, water, aviation, and critical manufacturing sectors."   If ever there were a direct admission by Uncle Sam that the very foundations of our modern society were vulnerable, this would be it.
