How to Deal With Electric Shocks/Electrocution --by Guest Contributor, Dan F. Sullivan Although information about survival and preparedness is abundant these days, it’s extremely hard to find information about electrocution. Knowing what to do if you or anyone else gets electrocuted is of paramount importance particularly after a tornado or a hurricane, when the power lines are down.   My first “experiment” with electricity happened when I was 4. I stuck a pin inside an outlet because it...

Let’s face it. Even when we’ve had our car broken into and find nothing missing, it’s still very disturbing emotionally. It haunts us that some complete stranger was rummaging around in our world without any sense of decency that we’ve come to expect in our little world, even if it’s naively so.  This type of experience causes us even the most stalwart soul to feel violated somehow. And the vulnerability of it all lingers with us for a very long time. More than 25 years ago my old beater of a...

by J.C. Martin, Guest Contributor (Editor's Note: I'm thrilled to share with you a contribution by one of my friends who's always good for a smile as well as sensible preparedness wisdom--J.C.

And we’re back!   There’s been a flurry of activity behind the sabbatical at Preparedness Pro so that I could move it forward to what I really, really wanted it to be. And today I’m going to share with you the results thereof because chances are, if you’re reading this, then that activity will indeed impact you, and very soon too, I suspect.   Over the past several months I’ve been putting a major undertaking into play.  I’ve sorted through 15 years of belongings, including massive amounts of...

So tonight I was literally locked IN my hotel room. I couldn't get out for anything!!  The steel door handle wouldn't turn far enough for me to unlock the door.  After attempting to open the door for several minutes and ruining a good pair of shoes in a desperate attempt to kick the handle downward, I decided to call the front desk.  To be honest, I was worried that I wasn't able to open the door because of my wussy muscles, or at least a poor grip. So when I called the front desk and the...

Today I’m going to share two other activities with you that I’m SURE you’re going to love.   This first game/activity didn’t actually come from my mom, rather I learned it in the Philippines when I served there on a welfare mission and I confess, I LOVED playing it.  I them...

Today’s article isn’t about the all-natural cure for battling the Ebola virus. Nor is it about the 12 essential food items you can make from powdered milk. It’s quite a bit off the beaten path of the traditional “prepper journey”. However, it is still very much about being self-sufficient and it is about securing an asset that you MUST have if you’re to be truly prepared for troubled times ahead. It’s purchased with very little funds in the traditional sense and yet once you’ve acquired it, it...
