We still believe the American spirit is alive and strong. We believe there are still many red-blooded Americans out there who want to take responsibility for their family’s well-being. You know who you are. These are folks who don’t want to rely on the government in the event of a disaster (we all know how well that’s worked out in the past). These are the types of people who want to take action. They can be relied upon when the going gets tough. They are loyal, trustworthy friends.

Does this sound like you?

So you've decided to start preparing for the future. But where to begin? There’s so much to consider when it comes to emergency preparedness. I know I had many questions when I first started out.

I wanted to know what I needed to get my family through an extended power outage, a tornado or a flood. What would we need to bring should we have to evacuate? Where would we go? How do we protect ourselves? And what exactly is a Bug Out Bag?

This site will teach you all of that. In it you’ll learn essential disaster preparedness skills with articles that cover:

  • How to Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag
  • How to Feed Your Family No Matter What
  • Learn Essential Wilderness Skills
  • Stock the Perfect Emergency Supplies and Tools
  • Buying the Best Survival Knives and Guns
