A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.
September is an exciting time for me. It’s National Preparedness Month!
That may not seem like a lot to you but more people will get into prepping this month than any other. That’s really exciting news to me!
I love to see people prepping and I love to teach what I know to new preppers.
You can join me in teaching survival skills this month by hosting events, sharing this post, promoting volunteer programs and sharing emergency preparedness information.
What You Can Do
You can make sure that you are prepared. You can help friends, neighbors, and even your community be more prepared for emergencies.
It is important to have a game plan of preparedness. Read our checklist and basic plan for prepping in our post, Severe Storm Emergency Checklist.
After you get the basics down check out our list of 72 Items That Will Disappear First When The SHTF and then start prepping.
An easy way to prep on the cheap is to learn the 10 Items A Good Prepper Always Saves And Why.
You can also save money while prepping by being a smart online shopper and using a free saving service, like the one we talk about in How to Save Money While Buying your Survival, Prepping, and Homestead Gear that actually puts money back in your pocket for buying prepping gear.
Talking To Others
Make sure you take this chance to reach out to your neighbors and friends during National Preparedness Month.
Not only is it a great time to prep but it’s also a great time to find out who is interested in prepping.
An easy way to keep OPSEC and find neighbors who you can trust is to simply ask if they are doing anything for National Preparedness Month.
If you’re the social type throw a party to get your neighbors over then ask a few questions and just listen. You’ll quickly find out who isn’t into it.
If you find a few neighbors interested in prepping invite them to do something outdoors with you that requires some basic skills and preps…. camping, hiking, hunting, fishing.
See how prepared they are for that. See how good they are at it. If they are preppers (or at least a good candidate to be one), chances are they’ll be ready and willing.
Enjoy National Preparedness Month. Check your preps, find prepper friends, and share your knowledge with those you trust!
