Planning is when you establish, write, or by other means assemble policies, goals, principles, and procedures. In this case specifically, the planning process will have the intent to prepare you and your family for emergency or disastrous situations. This could be as simple as planning a fire escape rout in your home, stockpiling goods for extreme winter conditions and cold, or even for that society ending event. YOU are responsible for your own survival! DO NOT sit around and wait for the government to save you- they may not show up for days, even if they arrive at all!
