Preparedness begins with you and me

Dear Gary,

Your fellow “ZAG” and spouse Margie just returned from New Jersey after being deployed by the American Red Cross to serve to affected citizens of Hurricane Sandy!

Your perception of the necessity role of “Big Government” is somewhat convoluted (pardon me). Disaster Preparedness begins “first with you and me!” We have the responsibility to prepare and protect ourselves, our families, our property and our community.

When conditions exceed our capability- then we reach out to the next level. When our city, county and our state is unable to perform to the level that we require due to the nature and magnitude of the event—THEN the national agencies are called upon!

We miss you all! Be safe! and plan well!
