The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised the swine flu alert to level 5 out of 6.
Margaret Chan Director-General of the WHO stated;
This change to a higher phase of alert is a signal to governments, to ministries of health and other ministries, to the pharmaceutical industry and the business community that certain actions should now be undertaken with increased urgency, and at an accelerated pace,
Certain actions should be taken now by individuals to be prepared.
The possibility of a serious impact caused by the flu is growing each day and as more information comes to light.
Being food prepared means having a one month to a six month long term food storage, preferably freeze dried food.
Why freeze dried?
Freeze dried food reserves lasts 25 years.
Meals are ready to eat just by adding water.
While the possibility of severe impact from a swine flu outbreak is higher now and growing, it is still not certain nor even likely yet to become severe.
If your long term food storage plan includes bulk bags of staples for an immediate threat, like swine flu, and that threat does not materialize what happens to the bulk staples?
The bulk food will sit in storage for awhile then they are thrown out.
Then one day a disaster does materialize and you are not prepared.
There is still plenty of time to order online and have freeze dried food delivered to your house.
Order lead times are currently one week to 10 days. But the lead time has been getting longer each day this week.Emergency Food,Emergency Survival Kit,food storage,Freeze Dried Food,Pandemic Preparedness,Survival Food,swine flu,swine flu preparedness
