PREPARING FOR MUNDANE DISASTERS IN THE HOME
Humans are pretty bad when it comes to risk assessments. As a species, we tend to fo – cus more on fantastical outliers and aggressive outside influences rather than the boring nor – mal. But dead is still dead regardless of the reason, so let’s look at some important statistics as well as simple and practical ways to tangibly reduce your risk of accidental death.
One of the problems with statistics and the rule of large numbers is that they aren’t one-size-fits-all; individuals have different risk factors than groups as a whole. Nor do statistics account for the stakes of failing to prepare, just the outcomes.
While the overall probability of a home invasion occurring may be quite small, the stakes are extremely high if it actually happens. If you’ve gone through the trouble of setting up and practicing a home invasion plan, gaming scenarios and running drills, you should at least give these a look and keep them in mind. They aren’t really fun or sexy and make for terrible TikTok posts, but they can help keep you safe.
