We can either approach a natural-born emergency as individuals or as a community.
There’s something redundant, inherently inefficient, when we all plan to meet a disaster wielding the same tools.
Some of us should be charged with stockpiling batteries, lanterns, generator, a pantry full of canned goods, water, and closets filled with extra blankies.
Then some of us should have a car full of gas, a case of wine in the trunk, and a list of addresses where we can find the aforementioned stockpile.
This can only work with true foresight, effort, and sensitivity. Remember: Not everyone likes Chardonnay.
