The Northern Illinois Preppers are an emergency preparedness group. Our team meets on topics that we feel are relevant to urban, suburban, and rural preppers.

In an emergency, we can survive 3 minutes without oxygen, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food, and 3 months without companionship.  Being alone will be the most difficult part of survival.

We suggest that our members form alliances and become part of an established team that comes from different backgrounds and provides a wide range of skills if there are no conflicts of personality or beliefs.

Joining a team of families and friends in a crisis is not a requirement of survival, but the lone wolf will find a difficult path to follow.

We are always interested in meeting and sharing ideas with folks from all backgrounds.  All are welcome to learn and share their knowledge as part of this meetup group.
