Peschke: Be prepared in case disaster strikes
While attending a meeting on disaster preparedness, a friend of mine suggested that I do a column on personal disaster preparation. It seemed like a great idea, given the recent destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy on the East Coast.
Here in McHenry County we’ve had our share of blackouts and major snowstorms, sometimes leading to long-term power outages and hazardous driving conditions. And while this winter isn’t predicted to be a particularly snowy one, just one good storm can certainly clog up the works.
So, what should we all do to make sure we don’t get caught without the basics, if and when a disaster strikes? Be prepared for a rainy (or snowy) day.
