During a disaster how many hours should a person be prepared to be on their own?
Some disasters will be "local" and response to recovery maybe be quick; but everyone should be preparing for a "Worst Case Scenario." A "worst case scenario" would be a 72 to 96 hours or longer type of disaster, and though the "worst case scenario" doesn't happen very often, preparing for it will carry a person through all other events that are more likely to occur.
