We sure bit the bullet on Ike
We sure bit the bullet on Ike. We were very lucky that it went out
into the gulf and not up the coast. Unfortunately, those in it's path were not so lucky. Our hearts go out to those
who lost loved ones in Texas and in other states that Ike visited.
Unfortunately, we are not yet out of the woods yet. The hurricane season isn't
over. Who knows what may be in store for us.
As I stated in my last message to you, "Remember, we are the ones that stand
between life and death when a disaster strikes."
Check your gear and make sure that everything is in working condition. Organize
your back pack is such a way that you know where everything is. There are a lot of pockets and you can waste
precious time trying to find something unless you know just where it is.
Also, make sure that your own stores are ready, enough water, batteries that are
fresh, lanterns, first aid supplies, etc.
Also check out the flyer in the "List of Activities" section of this web site. Try
to make time to be there. It is very important that we try to know all there is to know in order to be ready to
respond when and if we are called on in a disaster.
