Other People Or The Government Will Help During Difficult Times.
While Lighthouse Ready agrees with you in a local or regional disaster that lasts a short time, it is a well-known fact that over the years, nearly all response agencies do not own nor do they store supplies anymore. Rather, they rely solely on the private sector to provide “just-in-time” resources, which will be equally impacted with any long-term disruption. Further, as responders and their families become victims themselves, the system is poised for a breakdown and, unfortunately, the “every man for himself ” mentality becomes the natural and logical progression. We believe we should be prepared for our families and our communities to help others.
