Pandemic Preparedness

If there's anything Abbie and I don't like, it's making people feel the need the panic.  With everything that's going on in the world right now, there's still no reason to panic at all, but there are precautions that everyone can take to protect themselves and to feel more prepared.

Providentliving.org has some great resources about pandemic preparedness planning.  Take a few minutes to read through the information there, and educate yourself and your family about it.  

The Center for Disease Control also has some good information.

Again, there's no need to panic or feel scared.  Don't rush to the stores and buy everything in sight.  Keep yourself educated about what's going on, and do what you need to do to protect yourself and your family.

That's why I love our commandment to keep food storage and to be prepared: we have much less reason to worry!

Thanks for the links

Thanks for being a voice of reason in this panic-prone time. Last Sunday our EQ president wanted to announce from the pulpit that everyone should have their 3-month supply ready now for when we get quarantined. Luckily our bishop has a level head and told him no.
