What to have when a disaster strikes.

There are plenty of reasons you need to have at lease some preps. Most often here in Alabama it’s Severe Weather. But it could be weather, Pandemic illness, or even a short term power outage. It is always a good idea to have some of these things in an emergency situation of any kind. Most disasters we would encounter are short term, however that does not mean a small localized disaster cannot turn into a much bigger one.
