Disaster Readiness: Taking the Preparedness Test

 We both agreed that with hurricane season imminent, a reminder to review your level of disaster preparedness was the very best thing we could write about this week.
As a result of our call, Gaye’s decided to go ahead and uncork her preparedness checklist in a special post to her readers on Saturday (she normally puts up new articles at her Backdoor Survival site on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays). The two of us being sometimes-lazy types, decided to post that article here as well.
So, without further discussion, are you ready to take the Preparedness Test?
Has your family rehearsed fire escape routes from your home?

2. Does your family know what to do before, during, and after an earthquake or other emergency situation?

3. Do you have heavy objects hanging over beds that can fall during an earthquake?

4. Do you have access to an operational flashlight in every occupied bedroom? (use of candles is not recommended unless you are sure there is no leaking gas)
