Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

What Kind of Preparedness?

There are many ways to prepare.  Which are of most value?  Part of being able to deal with unforeseen circumstances is to be emotionally stable.  Sometimes it takes some work to get there, to let-go of past weights and problems, and move forward in new energies and hope.  Foot-zoning can be helpful with that as can other alternative solutions. (find someone in your area who does it.)

Spiritual, Mental, and Financial are also part of Preparedness. 

When we speak of preparedness we most-often think of food and survival supplies.   These are important and can be life-saving.  We need to continue our preparations in all these areas.  But, I would suggest that of all ways in which we can prepare - Spiritual is most vital.  For if we are spiritually prepared, and ready, then...we will also be prepared in all the other ways.
