One of the books that I read and was very impressed with is called Just in Case - How to Be Self-Sufficient When the Unexpected Happens by Kathy Harrison. The book is packed with so many helpful tips and ideas for any individual or family to apply to their life/lives.
One of the first ideas she presents is to assess your home's safety. There are only a few questions, but they are ones that are so important to take the time to answer.
The other idea that I thought is a good one is creating a Preparedness Notebook. Below are the key points that the author makes in the book.
My goal is to get the Preparedness Notebook done this weekend; and determine if there are any improvements that need to be made to the home to make it safer.
