Think Out Loud

Getting Prepared

Pete Springer/OPB

When disaster strikes, even if it’s not in your own city, it can make you wonder: how would I handle being without power for days at a time? What do I need to survive a big storm like Sandy or an earthquake like the two that happened in British Columbia recently?

Maybe you already have a backpack full of supplies ready to go, but do you have enough water or nonperishable food in the house? Do you have provisions for your pets?

What questions do you have about emergency preparedness? Have you been through a natural disaster before? How did you handle it and what do you wish you had known?
