The Salem-Area Preparedness Group (SAPG) is intentionally seeking to bring together seriously committed and like-minded persons already acquiring the items (i.e., knowledge, training, resources, and the like) necessary to survive a catastrophic event, be it manmade or natural (aka WROL or SHTF), or are interested in learning those skillsets to prepare for an event, and or take their preparedness to the next level.

We continually strive to bring the highest quality subject matter content to our approved members from experts from within the group, or by hosting educational opportunities by utilizing guest speakers (paid and non-paid) from a variety of fields, participating in field activities, or participating in preparedness events offered in the surrounding region.    

Please submit your request for membership, understanding that you may not  currently be granted membership for a variety of unpreparedness reasons (i.e., from your responses we feel that you may not in your current level of preparedness positively impact the group in a very meaningful way, etc, etc).  We are very serious about preparedness and are interested in granting membership to you only if you are just as serious about preparedness as we are.  A part of that seriousness includes an open willingness to help the group financially, in the form of a dues payment of $5.00/mo, which goes to paying for guest speakers, meeting location costs, and the like.  The organizers are not financially benefiting from these dues. 

If you are not granted immediate membership, please understand that our primary responsibility to our members is to get them all to a point where they will be able to take care of themselves and their family members in the event of a catastrophic event.  As you acquire additional knowledge and resources, we invite you to resubmit a request for membership.  The more knowledge and resources that you have for yourself, the greater the likelihood there is for you becoming approved for membership to SAPG, which we invite and look forward to.  Alternatively, you may look for content on our Facebook page at:

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
