Memories of the Covington area and changes that have occurred as recalled by a native of the area for over forty years.
Are You Prepared Even in Covington?January 22nd, 2013 at Tue, 22nd, 2013 at 7:54 pm by Rick Bergum
When I was young, the thought of being prepared for disasters, terrorists attacks or some other horrendous event never crossed my mind. Now it’s prudent to be prepared!
The world we live in is every changing whether for good or bad. To be prepared for the bad, the government and other agencies have implemented requirements that should be adhered to in order to save one’s family and life.
There are a number of websites designed by the state, county, government, FEMA, OSHA and others that outline the basic steps that should be taken and to be prepared for the worst. It would be prudent for everyone to be prepared for such an event. A minimum three day supply of food and water along with other basics such as a first-aid kit, dust masks, rope, emergency blankets, water purification tablets, waterproof matches, multitool, NOAA radio, lights, batteries, money in small bills, important documents, gloves, mirrors, whistles and more should be ready to go in a “go-bag” at a moments notice. Keeping these bags handy, perhaps in your car at all times could save your family and your life.
So even though years ago the tiny city of Covington didn’t even dream of such scenarios, today it is a reality and we should all be prepared.
