How ready are you for the next threat?
It is now the beginning of 2008, and a quick visit to the Department of Homeland Security's website will show that just before the first of the year, they began urging people to "Resolve to be Ready." A campaign designed to encourage people to make some effort to be ready to survive any type of disaster for a minimum of 72 hours.
While those who've been part of the preparedness community would scoff at the suggestion of a mere 72-hours of survival readiness, the fact is that this is really the first time since 9/11 that a government entity has encouraged any kind of preparation. In fact, according to Secretary Chertoff, readiness should be "a priority for 2008."
Use this Homeland Security Threat Monitor to guage whether you think we are really as safe as you would like to think. Then, even if a Level 3/yellow, doesn't concern you, remember that threats like Hurricane Katrinas and the 2007 Southern California fires aren't monitored by the Homeland Security Threat Monitor. For the Americans who were forced to leave their home ahead of a natural disaster, some readiness might have come in handy.
