Emergency Preparedness Expert Larry Frank a.k.a Mr. Prepared™ Discusses “Disaster Personalities”

Mr. Prepared™ recently discussed personality traits during disasters and their effect on one’s reaction during an emergency

 Orlando, Fla. – June 13, 2008 – In a recent article on http://www.MrPrepared.com, emergency preparedness expert, Larry Frank a.k.a. Mr. Prepared™, examines the effect of one’s personality on their actions during an emergency situation.  In the article titled, “What’s Your Disaster Personality?” Mr. Prepared™ explains that panicking during an emergency situation is actually a good reaction.  In this case, Mr. Prepared™ compares panicking, which he describes as “taking action,” to “doing nothing.”  Most people, he explains, are usually susceptible to going in to shock over the emergency situation around them, causing them to do nothing.

 This susceptibility to “doing nothing” during emergency is directly related to how prepared each person is for certain disaster and emergency situations.  The article describes how being fully prepared for any emergency situation is as easy as thinking it through and purchasing all of the items that you need beforehand.  Being prepared in this manner helps one think clearer and react faster during an emergency, because they have already thought through the proper actions to take.

 Larry Frank a.k.a. Mr. Prepared writes, “If you don’t react properly during an emergency, you put yourself and your family in more jeopardy.  If you don’t prepare properly for an emergency, the same thing happens.  That’s why being scared keeps you safe – it makes you take the proper action by purchasing your emergency supplies prior to an emergency so that you can be prepared for anything. ”
