Emergency preparedness is a continual process that requires monthly evaluation and almost daily consideration. It is important not to become overwhelmed such that you never start, and it is also very important not to take on too much at once.
Below are quotes from two talks entitled "If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear" given by two of the Lord's modern Prophets. Click on each to read the entire article.
"We do live in turbulent times. Often the future is unknown; therefore, it behooves us to prepare for uncertainties." --President Thomas S. Monson Ensign, Nov 2004, 113
"We can so live that we can call upon the Lord for His protection and guidance. … We cannot expect His help if we are unwilling to keep His commandments." -- President Gordon B. Hinkley Ensign, Nov 2005, 60
