Since the weather is very nice, here are a few thoughts for you to think about. The forecast is below.

1- Are you actually ready for winter since we got a pretty good taste of it this past week? If not, you really need to be looking into what YOU need to do for you and your family. Always remember, ideas for this are out there and we have them on our gcem.org website, on our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app, and you can find lists under Preparedness by using any of the search engines out there. If you haven’t taken any steps to be better prepared, it’s YOUR FAULT.

2- Many folks in the past have blamed me for their lack of preparedness. It’s my responsibility to give you the tools necessary to be ready but it your responsibility to implement them. By stating, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN HERE, doesn’t mean it hasn’t or won’t, because it has. Take the time to at least look into it. It’s not hard and it really isn’t very expensive. Every family is different so if you decide NOT to be at least partially prepared, you only have yourself to blame.

3- In my life, living here, we have had FLOODS, TORNADO’S, HIGH WIND EVENTS, ICE STORMS, WILDLAND FIRES, and EARTHQUAKES. Never tell me is won’t happen here, because it has. You can find our preparedness guide here- https://gcem.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/FamilyPreparednessGuide2019.pdf
