Any American citizen who actually counts on government to save him or her during a disaster is a fool. Always, always, always have food and water supplies adequate to sustain you for a minimum of two weeks. Always have some cash you can grab, because cash is king when everything breaks down. Always have the basics covered, like a few gallons of gas, a generator, first aid supplies, extra toilet paper. Duh, people. To sit around in 2012 and expect the government to take care of you is truly ignorant.
