Summer time …
It refers to the memories and thoughts of the late Barbie and family and friends enjoying hot nights on decks and patches. You can feel the summer and icy water near the lawn sprinklers and swimming pools. Eat ice-cold drinks.
Summer time is "fun in the sun" and "great memories in flip flops" …
But summer time can also be Natural disasters season …
Hurricanes, floods, hurricanes, wildfires … they usually turn their ugly heads during the warmer months.
In the last few months, Because of the COVID-19 crisis, the need for emergency planning became apparent to Americans. The crisis highlighted the urgent need for emergency planning and preparedness.
None of us have reacted to the crisis and stored up on things we know are essential for ourselves and our relatives?
If it's toilet paper, Bottled water, handicrafts, food, medicine or anything else, we have implemented our “emergency plans” and prepared for the possibility of shortage. We have provided and are facing the possibility that access to stores and goods may be limited … and our ability to exit and purchase goods may also be limited.
But humans are not the only ones facing this crisis. Our pets deal with them according to us. Our abusive friends face physical dangers and consequently dangers as well. But generally, if the situation is not safe for us, it is not safe for them either.
