Disaster and Emergencies

By August 28, 2011

No one likes to think about disasters. No one likes to think about emergencies that can happen. But, if we are to be able to handle these situations, we must indeed be ready. Earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, floods.... these and more are a part of living on our beautiful planet. They are a part of life.

We may not be able to chose what, when, or if disaster will strike us.... We can, however, be prepared.

As potters, many of us have clay spaces that include any variety of tools and equipment, some of which is quite expensive. What would you do if your kiln shed burnt to the ground? Or an earthquake destroyed all the pottery you made to sell?

We now have help in knowing what to do and how to prepare. The Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artist's Emergency Resources (CERF+) has put together an invaluable tool: The Studio Protector. Read my review of it today. We cannot know what tomorrow will bring.
