My friend Morg has drawn my attention to the fact that 22 February is the anniversary of the horrendous earthquake in Christchurch, and has suggested this would be an excellent time to check out our disaster kits and packs and refresh supplies, or to make up a kit if it's fallen down the "Things To Do Urgently" list.
His post is here -
and from there you can link into the Facebook "Be Prepared" page.
Check it out, "like" it, and mostly, get your gear together!
Hopefully it won't be needed, but if it is, best we are prepared!
