Sometimes the best advice is pointless if people fail to heed very clear warnings. I watched the news and saw people who knowingly ignore evacuation orders and who bragged about riding out Hurricane Ivan. Now the storm is mostly past and communities, businesses, and individuals are cleaning up and putting things back together. The ones who recover the best will be the lucky and the ones who took the time to understand the risks and prepared plans to deal with them the best they could. Emergency preparedness has to start with identifying the risks, creating a action plan to deal with the risk, and heeding the warnings!!!!!
