About More Prepared
The story behind More Prepared is simple – two talented, resourceful women saw a problem in their local schools’ emergency preparedness plans and developed a solution.
Mina Arnao and Cindy Owings live in southern California where earthquakes are a reality and schools are required by the state to have adequate emergency supplies and a plan. Their children attended various preschool and elementary schools, both private and public. They found that the earthquake preparedness varied greatly at every school. Some schools required kids to bring in a kit each fall, others didn't even though they didn't have adequate supplies on hand for them. Public schools varied by district and even within the same district. California's budget cuts took their toll and in many cases, the PTA had to raise funds to provide basic supplies including paper, pens, tissues and earthquake kits. Even the schools who required kits didn't always ask for the right type of supplies. Recognizing that a granola bar and bottle of water did not comprise quality disaster supplies, their customized signature “Kids Kit” was born.
The More Prepared website launched in August 2005. Two weeks later Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and orders began pouring in from all over the country. Mina and Cindy realized they could empower individuals, families, schools, businesses and other organizations to take responsibility for their own well-being through education combined with emergency and survival preparation.
