I am Jeanne Cushing - the newly (March 2013) assigned Emergency Preparedness Specialist / Director for Naples 2nd Ward.
I am the mother of seven with three (soon to be four) beautiful granddaughters.
I grew up in a home where self-reliance was the expectation. My parents were incredible examples of determination and commitment. When I was a teenager, my mother determined the old couch was past its prime - so she learned how to reupholster and did the entire job herself.
Remember - reduce, reuse, recycle! and repurpose!
My objective is to present useful, perhaps valuable, information relative to living with a self-reliant, prepared mentality. The blog is also a launch pad to useful websites which contain information relative to various aspects of this objective.
There is nothing more reassuring than knowing you can care for yourself and that if the unthinkable were to happen, you would know what to do - and have the wherewithal to do it. I reflect on disaster situations where the victims are helpless just waiting for someone to come rescue them. It doesn't have to be that way.
Be faithful in training yourself, in learning new techniques and skills.
Let's be prepared! The life you save might be your own.
