A Basic Plan

Why is it important to have an emergency plan?

As faithful members of Christ’s church we are admonished to be prepared. The brethren have counseled the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to create food storage and to prepare themselves and their families for emergency situations.

“The need for preparation is abundantly clear. The great blessing of being prepared gives us freedom from fear, as guaranteed to us by the Lord in the Doctrine and Covenants: “If ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (D&C 38:30).

-L. Tom Perry

We are counseled time after time to get our house in order and to be prepared. The Lord has made strict laws for his faithful to abide by regarding emergency preparedness. Most Latter-day Saints are only minimally prepared and are not aware of how unprepared they really are. The scriptures and the prophets have given repeated warnings that destructive events will occur in our lifetimes. Only spiritual and temporal preparation can drive away fear and put our minds at ease and peace. Individuals and families should prepare to be as self-reliant and as possible in times of emergency.

“The Lord declared that these and other calamities shall occur. These particular prophecies seem not to be conditional. The Lord, with his foreknowledge, knows that they will happen. Some will come about through man’s manipulations; others through the forces of nature and nature’s God, but that they will come seems certain. Prophecy is but history in reverse—a divine disclosure of future events.”

-Ezra Taft Benson

It is a priesthood responsibility for men to be prepared and get their families prepared for the worst of disasters. Women have a sacred responsibility to make sure that they and their children are properly prepared and educated in the case of an emergency. It has been shown that most people are not ready and able to sustain themselves for more then 48 hours without proper emergency training and preparation.

There are four important reasons why having an emergency plan is necessary:

  1. To help church leaders and the church understand and implement Gospel principles, organization, policies and procedures of emergency preparedness.
  2. To get individuals and families to be self-reliant and prepared for whatever each day may bring.
  3. To be trained and prepared as a unit to meet the emergency needs that are larger then single family situation, requiring accurate and timely action to avoid suffering.
  4. To adhere to the counsel of the Lord through His prophets.

Our families deserve the comfort, reassurance, and peach of mind that comes only by being prepared. The LDS Emergency Preparedness System is the absolute best way to spiritually, temporally, and faithfully prepare for all emergencies.

How quickly can I get prepared?

Many families and faithful members of the church know that they need to follow the prophet and get prepared. However, it is often thought that it can take months or even years to become fully prepared. This is simply not true.

“We can begin ever so modestly. We can begin with a one week’s food supply and gradually build it to a month, and then to three months. . .  I fear that so many feel that a long-term food supply is so far beyond their reach that they make no effort at all. Begin in a small way, . . . and gradually build toward a reasonable objective.”

-President Gordon B. Hinckley

How much would you pay for the comfort and reassurance that you and your family were prepared? What would you pay to have an entire emergency preparedness plan in place, an ample food supply to last more than a year, knowledge of how to react in any emergency, and the ability to help educate others based on your knowledge?

Using the LDS Emergency Preparedness System, you can do all of this and more in 30 days or less.

Many members using the LDS Emergency Preparedness System have indicated that they have built stronger bonds with their families and have made emergency preparedness part of their everyday lives. By incorporating this system’s principles into family home evenings, family prayer, family activities, and much more, you will be able to make emergency preparedness exciting and fun.

Other preparedness systems give you tips and advice about emergency preparedness, but do not give you the guarantee of step-by-step knowledge to actually become prepared. Quickly and easily build a preparedness system specific to your family’s needs based on the ever-important principles of the Gospel.

“Hearken, O ye people of my church… Hearken ye people from afar; and ye that are upon the islands of the sea, listen together… ”Prepare ye, prepare ye for that which is to come, for the Lord is nigh.”
-D&C 1:1, 12
