    I have heard anecdotal stories about people whose emergency plan proved too complicated or took too much time to implement. Unfortunately, that may have cost some lives.
    My wife and I have started to discuss our emergency plans for various disasters, such as evacuation, sheltering in place, and going to other family member\’s houses to shelter in place, plans in case I am at home or at work, if the kids are at school, or if we are out of the house.
    She doesn\’t want to discuss the topic, because the thought of going through a nature disaster scares her too much and because it is my wife I can\’t exactly force her to have the discussion.
    So, now I have plans that aren\’t that good because a. I am the only one that knows them, b. they don\’t take into account any issues or requirements that a mother understands but a father misses, and c. my wife is smarter than I am.
    We have many topics that are waiting for later; thankfully, not all of them are this serious.
    Other family members look at me like I am wearing a tinfoil hat when I bring up the topic of detailed emergency planning, and refuse to discuss the issue beyond “when there is a storm in the gulf we will have a family meeting and figure it out,” well that is well and good if you have a week and a half to prepare, but what about any number of other disasters that happen more rapidly?
    The question is, how do you get people that have no interest in emergency planning engaged in planning let alone active preparation?
    But, then again I think the Red Cross and every government agency involved in emergency management has been working on the same issue for decades.
