The Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation poll revealed that 44 percent of U.S. adults don't have first-aid kits and 48 percent lack emergency supplies for use in the event of catastrophes. The researchers said that people have a responsibility to boost their emergency preparedness, to make difficult or life-threatening situations safer.
The poll also revealed that 55 percent of Americans think they can rely on local authorities to come to their rescue when disaster strikes.

From my perspective. I'm not prepared enough. I have some camping gear, a first aid kit, a gun, and a plan, but other then that I'm not nearly as prepared as I'd like to be. I'd like be a survivalist preper to the extent that I have extended food rations and way more ammo then I have but I'm at a point in my life where I have to pay my bills and I can't worry about terribly much else yet. I can't afford the kind of preping I'd like to do. I can just do my best with what I have available to me.
