WASHINGTON, D.C. – As flooding, wildfires and hurricanes wreck significant sections of the nation, September is the perfect month to serve as National Preparedness Month.
But if survival-minded people are inspired to develop their plan and stock up on supplies, the shopping process could take hours just researching advice and looking for the best deals. For that, PBN has a solution. We did the work for you. Check out the Survival Industry’s most comprehensive list for advice and gear.
In addition, we officially launched the industry’s most comprehensive listing of survival training and expos. Divided by month and state, our list, which will continue to grow, gives new and experienced preppers, homesteaders, survivalists and fans of self-reliance plenty of opportunities to begin or advance their training.
Now is the time to make a plan and follow through.
Officially recognized as National Preparedness Month for years now, the federal government leads the annual charge to prepare Americans for potential emergencies. Of course, it’s not lost on anyone that other governments also are attempting to engage their citizens in preparedness, though for different reasons. Germany and Russia are leading the calls, though for different stated reasons. Germany is facing an economic downturn and is concerned about other catastrophes, while Russia fears all out war over the Ukraine.
Regardless of the reason, prudent planning is always a positive for individuals and families.
And now that you don’t have to waste time scouring the web looking for the materials you need at discount prices, think about your family and community planning process.
The folks at Ready.gov offer a pretty good step-by-step guide to preparing family and friends for the next emergency. That said, while we are often wary of government programs, it may be easier to introduce preparedness to friends and family when it comes from the government, instead of a bunch of websites they’ve never heard of.
Regardless of your strategy, the experts agree, don’t wait. Begin making your preparedness plans today. For more information, click here.
