Step Two: Create Per Crisis Needs Lists.
This is a list of all the goods, knowledge and skills you feel you will need to survive the particular crisis for its potential scope and duration. It doesn’t matter if you already possess these items or not, list them.
You will most likely find that there are quite a few items that will repeat themselves from list to list. Write them down anyway but do “flag” them as repeats.
- Clean these Per Crisis Needs Lists up a bit by prioritizing and listing all the repeated items first and then follow with prioritizing the remaining needs that do not repeat.
- Next, take each Per Crisis Needs List and flag all the goods, knowledge and skills you already possess. These are your Final Per Crisis Needs Lists for use in building your preparedness plan.
- Lastly create a consolidated Acquire List of all the goods, knowledge and skills you need to acquire.
o Continue on to the #2 Crisis. Do not relist a repeat, however do put a ‘tick’ mark next to the first time this is listed, so you have an idea of how many times this repeated.
Once this is completed you will have a prioritized Acquire List for your preparedness plan.
