Hi there, my name is Fred and my family and I live in Northern Michigan. I was fortunate to grow up in a family that prioritized being prepared for emergencies and learned a lot about how to be prepared for those scenarios when I had my own family.

Over the years I have realized that not everyone was taught the same valuable skills and that is why I made this site. I hope you find the information you need to ensure the safety of your family when disaster strikes.

No matter where you live, there are both universal and unique emergency situations that you should be prepared for. As I was shown at an early age, taking the time to prepare before an emergency hits will save you and your family both money and more importantly heartache. 

All articles on this site are written or edited by me. My job is to provide you with accurate and important information that will help you make wise decision as you develop your emergency preparedness plan.
