Like many of you, I have been watching the (somewhat limited--once again the UK media doing the heavy lifting) US coverage of the Ebola outbreak in
Africa. With international travel can (even w/the best of precautions/screenings) anything stop the spread around the world, and if so, what
would/could be done if it turns up in various population centers around the globe? My best guess would be we would be ordered (Martial Law type
situation?) to "shelter in place." Stay put. No travel. No leaving your home. Medical personnel/police/fire/military quarantined in work
settings...and the rest of us ORDERED (remember ALL those military type vehicles local police now have?) to stay indoors and away from others?
If that occurred, would chaos ensue? How would people survive w/o access to stores (think Sandy but the storm doesn't end for 7 weeks). To that end,
I would like to suggest (in addition to staying on top of news) to prep.
Prep...be prepared. Just like in hurricane season in some parts of the country. It isn't crazy, or being a tin foiler, it's thinking ahead,
preparing for what MIGHT occur if you cannot leave your home. For weeks.
Canned goods, dry beans, rice, bottled water. Shelf stable items. Perishables only if you can freeze (unlike a storm, there should be no loss of
power). But please keep the thought of "extra" in your mind.
Prep incase the Ebola becomes a pandemic.
