Are you Prepared?
We in the Boy Scouts have a motto: Be Prepared. One of the greatest things we can teach our children and scouts is that simple motto. With our passing storms and winter coming upon us, you need to ask yourself if you are indeed prepared. If you have a copy of the Boy Scout Handbook you have a good resource that can help you become prepared.
With the holidays coming up, a lot of people travel. Is your car ready and prepared? Have you had it serviced lately? Is there a first aid kit? Do you have extra blankets in case you get stranded during a snow storm? These are just a few questions you should ask yourself.
So please ask yourself, ďAre you prepared?Ē Keep yourself, and your kids safe.
