What you can do to prepare NOW

The worst case scenario could be a situation where there is extensive spread of a contagious disease (that medical authorities aren't able to effectively treat) and where the continued spread of the disease is difficult to halt.

In this case, you may find yourself confined to a secure shelter (either at home or elsewhere), avoiding all outside human contact until the 'all clear' is given.  Depending on the nature of the situation, this could be a question of days, weeks or - in an extreme, but unlikely, case - even months.

To prepare yourself and your family for this type of situation, there are a number of steps you can take

By taking these steps now, you can ensure that yourself and your family can survive an extended crisis - even in the event of scarce access to water, food, communications, electricity, medical help, and so on.

There are a number of things you will need to consider when preparing for a worst case scenario:

Preparing a 'safe room' at home

Preparing water supplies

Preparing food supplies

Emergency energy, lighting and communication

Emergency survival kits

Gas masks and protective clothing

Medical, hygiene and baby supplies

Psychological preparation
