Go-Bags and Canteens
By Summer Lane
I have talked to so many people who have told me, “I never thought about being ready for an emergency until I read your books!” It’s so funny to me, because my books are purely fictional, based on a concept that could happen. I am a huge advocate of emergency preparedness, but it’s not like I have a bunker under my house or a ten year’s supply of canned beans in my pantry. I believe in preparing for the obvious, first. In Cassidy Hart’s story, the world of technology is wiped out by an electromagnetic pulse, and society is back to square one. In State of Emergency, all she has is her father’s Mustang, a case of bottled water and a go-bag full of basic supplies. I think it’s really important to have a go-bag ready in your house, just in case! You never know if you need to leave the area quickly. Things like fires, floods, earthquakes and the like make it a handy thing to have.
Most people are completely unprepared for an emergency. That’s why I wrote State of Emergency in the first place. I was thinking about that concept. Would I be ready if I had to leave my house right this second? My answer was no. And so The Collapse Series began to form in my head. I think it’s a scary but valid concept. Cassidy Hart has shown me what it’s like to fight for survival, and I plan on following her example and being prepared for the worst – while hoping for the best, of course!
