In what city do you live?


Tell us a little about yourself and what got you interested in learning to be prepared for possible emergencies.

I suppose I was in a bubble like everyone else, up until I saw first hand the damage and issues created by Katrina. Since then the conditions and direction of the U.S. has prompted even more self awareness and personal preparedness and general education.

How prepared are you and your family to live comfortably in a down turned economy with limited resources; supply chain disruptions; monetary hyper inflation/dollar collapse; fragile power grid; social unrest/absence of law enforcement; other? (1-5)

I don't think anyone can be a 5. We would probably be a 3, we certainly are most prepared than most. (better to under rate than be overly confident). I personally believe that there is a lot we can prepare for but no one knows the what the future holds so I believe faith and luck are also important and try to conduct myself so that good karma might be in my favor.

Rank the following areas of instruction, training, discussion in priority for you no need to include all. Food/water storage, home defense/security, homesteading, bugging out/in, wilderness survival, orienteering, plant ID, living off the land, alte

Personal Safety & Security, Homesteading & Farming, Emergency Medical Response, Food Prep & Preservation.

What preparedness/survival skills do you have, with which you are comfortable enough leading discussions and instructing others. Could be skills like sewing, welding/fabricating/machining, canning, first aid, firearms trainer etc.
