September is National Preparedness Month - Are You Prepared?

“Be prepared.” Growing up and participating in the Boy Scouts, Alec heard this motto frequently. Scout organizations around the world have been using this as their motto since 1907. The motto became a part of Alec’s everyday life. In high school, Alec was the guy who kept jumper cables, sand, chains, food, water, and an all weather blanket in the back of his car - just in case. In college, he was always the guy that had the tools to fix just about anything. In his professional career, he was always looking for what could go wrong with a presentation or project - so he could have the necessary tools or information to fix the problem immediately. When going on business trips, Alec ensured his wife had all the necessary phone numbers and knew when he should be calling. Alec’s children had several “safe” questions, in case anyone tried to pick them up from school that they did not know. In case of an emergency, Alec’s children knew where to go and whom to call. They knew where the emergency kits were in the home. Alec was always prepared for whatever life may throw at him.
