Today I've got some great information to share with you regarding first aid training as a first responder--after all, we're ALL first responders--and situational awareness.  For those of you who aren't aware, typically the term "first responders" is referring to the rescue teams, EMTs or the firefighters or even law enforcement who arrive on the scene in which help is needed. Most often the term refers to those administering medical needs. The term "situational awareness" refers to a person's...

What better way to come back from a prolonged sabbatical than with a review of a really cool product AND giving away 4 of these awesome RZ Masks to 4 of our lucky readers?!?!  OK. So I’ve totally ruined any chance for suspense here as I’ve already used the words “cool” and “awesome”. So I think you can figure out where this RZ Mask review is going, but seriously, I was totally BLOWN AWAY with how awesome this product is.  They not only made it superior to other masks in terms of science and...

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...

Stocking up is about more than just having something good in the (likely) event when our money becomes worthless. It’s quickly becoming obvious that there are many aspects of our lives today that will be faced with a crisis of existence, not costs. My little brother has always been a particularly enterprising person. Somehow he learned the value in having something that other’s wanted but which was in short supply.  I particularly recall his savvy business skills on display every Halloween....

  This week my inbox has exploded with Google alerts on the keywords for “flu” and “influenza.” Over and over again I see dramatic headlines such as “Flu emergency declared”; “NY Reports 500% Increase in Flu Cases”; “US Grapples With Epidemic Level Flu Season”; my favorite one was this little ditty—“U.S. Scrambles for Flu Shots as Death Toll Continues to Rise.” The irony of that last one is that it didn’t even present a case for a shortage of vaccines. The article mentioned ONE state, Colorado...

Yesterday I began a series in which I shared with our readers the CRITICAL  information needed to know about essential oils in order to make an educated decision as to whether or not they should be a part of your self-reliance efforts, how to properly select them, and how to use them effectively.  Unfortunately, the way the deck is stacked against Americans today, making these decisions is a lot harder than you might realize. Knowing this, I’ve been cringing a LOT lately as I’ve watched...

Should essential oils be a part of your health and wellness care supplies? Is there a big difference between a bottle of essential oils that costs $90 and a bottle that costs $12? Is there a way to determine whether or not I’m really getting a quality product? Are they safe to use without side effects? Is there a big difference between essential oils and dried herbs of the same name?     Preparedness Pro's Essential Oil Collection All Rights Reserved Copyright 2012 Preparedness Pro     The...

Having an abundance of water available for future challenges is meaningless without having reliable methods of water filtration for  any of the water you’d use; as such I felt that it was important to research the topic of water filtration thoroughly and present my findings to you here. What I thought would be a standard week-long project turned into many months of work as I discovered that the water filtration industry is wrought with tricks, deception, and ignorance. Unfortunately, as a...

Yes, I’ve been a bit absent lately. But I have a really good reason and perhaps you might even be happy with the fruits of what I’ve been working on. If you haven’t heard, I’m a big proponent of using essential oils for a myriad of health care and wellness needs. They are the oldest known forms of medicinal aid we have on record and they are still being used regularly by medical professionals in Europe and parts of Asia.  My problem though, while researching them for over a decade, was that I...

Generally speaking, insects, mice, and other pests and vermin are enemies of our self-reliance. While there are many gidgets and gadgets today to help rid our lives of these nuisances, we really do need to look at addressing such problems without the presumption that we’ll have the luxury of such comfortable tools in the future. I would suggest specifically being capable of handling mice, rats, spiders, ants, excess flies, bed bugs, crickets, and mosquitoes, etc. as these intruders can...
