Prepper News Watch

While Ebola is the current hot topic, keep in mind there are other situations and events having the potential to ruin your day. Don’t become short-sighted by focusing too much in a single issue. Other potential scenarios include other diseases, terrorism, and the economy, just to name a few.

Hopefully by now, you have modified your preparedness plan for Ebola and other pandemic diseases and have worked out a family plan to deal with these issues. Start looking out on the horizon to see what may become an issue in six to 12 months and start preparing for those potentials. Winter is coming, and we’re still in hurricane season.
