I was at a department store yesterday and between music, their announcements were preparedness-related. "Make sure to have your emergency kits ready...", "stock up on..." kind of stuff. Now I'm not a big shopper, so I don't hang out there a lot, but I don't recall ever hearing a message like that one before. Hmmm... Looks like the Boy Scouts and Survival Monkeys were right. Be Prepared!
