Are You Prepared to be Wrong?

If being wrong means:
ꔷ grocery stores are empty?
ꔷ the electrical grid is out?
ꔷ the water mains are dry?
ꔷ the rule of law no longer applies?
ꔷ chaos and violence are the norm?
ꔷ governmental services are no longer available?

Are You Prepared to be Wrong?

If being wrong means:
ꔷ we have peace and prosperity and financial stability?
ꔷ life continues pretty much as it has for the past 50 years?

Our focus is on making the kind of balanced and realistic preparations that used to be considered ordinary common sense in an unstable and unpredictable world. That means being able to carry on without being dependent on external systems for the basic necessities of life – regardless of what happens – or what doesn’t happen.

Our focus is on both Preparedness and Awareness.
Preparedness is about independence and self-sufficiency rather than obsessing over any specific scenario.
Awareness is about understanding potential threats to our way of life and how to deal with those threats. Think of it as an expanded version of Situational Awareness.

  • To be announced

“…nuclear warfare is not necessary to cause a breakdown of our society. You take a large city like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago–their water supply comes from hundreds of miles away and any interruption of that, or food, or power for any period of time, you’re going to have riots in the streets. Our society is so fragile, so dependent on the interworking of things to provide us with goods and services, that you don’t need nuclear warfare to fragment us anymore than the Romans needed it to cause their eventual downfall.”
Gene Roddenberry

“The key to survival in anything – disasters, careers, and life in general – is being able to observe, understand, accept, and quickly adapt to radical changes. Preparedness makes the process smoother and easier.”
