30 days of prep

September is Preparedness month!  Meridian magazine has a great article with something to do every day of this month to get you better prepared.  I'll post each day's task early every morning.
Day 1
It’s shoe day! Place a sturdy pair of shoes under each bed in your home. These should be shoes that are not normally worn so they remain in place for an emergency. An earthquake or tornado means broken glass – you need to have shoes in the middle of the night. If you have young children place the shoes where they can be easily found by an older family member in the dark. Take a pair of good walking shoes to work. If an emergency arises at work and you are unable to drive home you may be on foot and will need good shoes. You will also want an extra pair in the car in case you are caught away from home and away from the office. Extra shoes are also important in case of a roadside emergency should your shoes get wet while changing a tire or awaiting rescue.
