prepare for pandemic

Pandemics are more serious than epidemics, because pandemic flu does not have an available vaccine, and it can spread dangerously fast. Agencies involved in pandemic planning recommend every family have an emergency store of food on hand, because affected areas will have to endure quarantine to contain the spread of disease.

Being prepared to take care of yourself during a disaster even if you are not handicapped or a senior citizen can be problematic. But if you are a senior citizen or handicapped, good planning and preparation is very important – there might not be anyone else you can depend on…..

It is estimated (by some expert) that the majority of those over 70 years of age,  especially the physically handicapped, or those dependent on drugs, will die within the first thirty-days of a full on national disaster. I’ve actually not got a problem with that guesstimate only there are a few things you can do to increase your chances.

Survival isn’t nearly stockpiling water.

FaceBook – are you safe from intruders collecting your information or contacting your children via FaceBook…..

There is no final word on how to use Facebook safely. Here’s why: social networking and the web change too quickly. The social network you use today is not the same one you will use tomorrow or next month. The privacy settings, functionality, connectability and features are constantly evolving, which means that almost no one has a handle on every aspect of this topic. Those who tell you that they have the final answer are probably selling you something you shouldn’t buy.
