Disaster Preparedness Part II
So. Bought your generator yet? During the long power outage, everybody, it seemed, became a preparedness expert, if not an out and out survivalist. But it's a mentality you might find hard to hold on to. You have to buy food you're NOT going to eat right away.
You have to think about alternative light sources when you have plenty of light. You have to be an ant when so much of modern life is about being a grasshopper. Hurricane season is just beginning. And it will be followed by blizzard season. How ready are you, and how much readier to you want to be? Arnold Chase is our preferred preparedness expert, and he'll be back in studio today to answer your questions and offer some advice about power, utilities, food, water and communication. Arnold also thinks people are often a little bit confused by what they hear about impending weather, so he'll introduce his own brand of clarity into that subject too.
