Muddle through ... do best you can
perhaps hoard 6 mos or 1 yr of food and water to be
safe ???

***Educate your family to the problems and REASSURE
them of being able to get through ... that what matters

Also educate family about the nature of any likely
natural disasters as earthquake , tidal wave , hurricane , typhoon , ice storm ... and esp the
results of any economic severe downturns or collapse...
as loss of banks , fuel etc ...
and go over these and your preparations so that
if they occur you are / they are FINE ... and not
alarmed by e.g. loss of car , loss of home , loss
of any one of you as they see the continuing on into
the future of family and hope ...
