Originally, I set out to update and make a few revisions to the original Crisis Preparedness Handbook written by my late husband, Jack A. Spigarelli. I wasn’t into it very far when I realized I was doing more than making some simple changes. I found that I had something important to say about being prepared. After all, I had practiced preparedness principles my whole life, even as a kid, and self-reliance was second nature for me.
I have felt the peace and confidence that comes from being prepared. I knew I could help people who understand they live in a dangerous world and who know they should be prepared, but are in a panic or confused about what to do about it. I knew I could give them guidance and a little encouragement to help them get it done.
And that’s my goal – to help people get prepared for whatever crisis they may face next.
