It should only take one time before you know better. In the mist of the recent plethora of storms, it is safe to say, “No one is a stranger to traumatic events!” Experiencing a devastating storm is a terrible life altering feeling. Once should be enough to know that preparation to an unexpected trauma is key to bouncing back. Now is the time to think ahead.
You need to have PROACTIVE PROTECTION against any tragedy
#1 Guard Your Emotions
Be intelligent about your emotions. Don’t wait until a tragedy happens to be aware of your emotions and physical responses and reactions. KNOW your level of emotional vulnerability and have COPING STRATGIES ahead of time.
#2 Guard Your Property
On social media the #1 topic after a tragic situation is how do I regain what was lost. Most people depend on crisis response from the government, but that is not reliable. INSURE your property with a property insurance plan.
#3 Guard Your Family
Have an emergency plan in place NOW. Know and practice responses and safe places for the family to find shelter. Also, have a plan for emergency cash, food and support systems. And don’t forget life and medical insurance policies.
You might not need assistance now but you must plan for later, keep GMC on hand and in a safe place! Traumas are sometimes too difficult to handle alone.
