So this month’s Stake focus topic is Pandemic Flu. We’ve found and created several documents which will help in getting yourselves and your wards prepared. As we all should now know, “On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a global pandemic of novel influenza A (H1N1) was underway by raising the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6.” Which means we NEED to be more prepared because it can and probably will get worse. If it doesn’t get worse and they are able to mass produce a an effective vaccine, then good for all of us who are prepared and it’ll be sad for those of us who are not. (I include myself in the “those who are not” but we are working on it.)
Remember, the main thing we need to do is make sure we have a good supply of food storage, if not for a year, then for 6 months, if not for 6 months then 3 months and just gradually increase your supply. Just start today if you don’t have a stock of food.
