Plunkett, joined by guest Michael Venetis, founder of thepreproom.net, urged the listening audience to get prepared with the emphasis on self reliance. “It’s so important for people to be self sufficient and to not rely on anybody”. “It’s kind of a scary thing, we think that if there’s some kind of disaster in our area, that help is on it’s way and that’s not always the case. Eventually somebody comes, but the problem is sometimes they just can’t get there quick enough” stated Mr. Venetis. Referring to Hurricane Katrina, Mr. Venetis said “we just didn’ t get there quick enough”. He points out people must consider there could be disasters that prevent help from getting to them. And in today’s economy when they do get to you, what kind of assistance can they afford to provide? That’s a lot to leave to chance.
During the one-hour broadcast they talked about a variety of topics, such as: affordable ways to get prepared, automobile emergency kits, and how our economy affects how we prepare. Both men admittedly have found themselves unprepared and have dealt with the consequences, making them more passionate about spreading the word. Chris Plunkett asks the listeners: “if you had to evacuate your home right now what would you need and where is it?” Mr. Venetis’ website the preproom.net offers smart well thought out disaster kits which can include food, water, communication devices, sanitation, first aid and many other emergency supplies, so your kit can be customized. They offer some suggestions on how to put together kits “on the cheap” and stress most importantly the message is to be better prepared and protected before disaster strikes!
