Bonus – Be Prepared Passionate Preparedness Projects
- Avoid keeping your freezer and refrigerator full when summer or winter storm warnings are being predicted. Use this time to analyze and audit what you have and consume healthy items and remove unhealthy items. Chest freezers are the most efficient way to store frozen food. Be sure to focus on long-term, shelf-stable foods that do not require a refrigerator or freezer in case we experience long-term power outages.
- Learn how to capture and store greywater and rainwater and use it to water your food forest, garden, house plants, and trees. Water is life for the food you need and you.
- Find events, meetups, and organizations that share your values, virtues, and vision to be prepared and live sustainably. Now is the time to reach out and find like-minded groups of people. We all need a team and a tribe to weather the storms on the horizon. Find your prepper community, network, team, and tribe resources and role models now so you have time to learn and train with other like-minded people. Great groups to connect and learn include: Permies, Exit and Build, Homesteads of America, Mother Earth News, Paul Wheaton Labs, and Permaculture Institute.
- The 80/20 Rule is also known as the Pareto Principle. Human dynamics and psychology would predict that 80% of the people will not be prepared and the remaining 20% are somewhat prepared at differing levels of preparedness. To put the best odds in your favor you need to be part of the 20% passionate preparedness prepper group now and improve your preparedness knowledge and skills.
- Get your prepping and survival stockpile ready before the proverbial Storm Hits The Fan (SHTF). You want to have the things you may need for a prolonged power outage. You do not want to be out in the chaos and confusion and running around like a crazy person when a crisis or storm is bearing down on your area.
- Financial planning is also an important part of passionate preparedness. Be sure to organize your most important financial documents and files for your protection and safekeeping. Cash is king when the ATMs stop working and the power goes out. Credit cards may not work due to network disruptions and power outages. How much cash do you have immediate access to (within 5 minutes) in the event of a significant emergency?
- Identify equipment, supplies, and tools that will come in handy and are important to your preparedness planning. Plastic and plywood can be secured and screwed in place to protect doors and windows from severe wind damage. Have duct tape and tarps handy. You never know when they may be useful.
- Conduct dress rehearsal and family drills to ensure your family knows the responsibilities, roles, and routines necessary for when the power goes out or Storms Hit The Fan (SHTF).
- First aid and medical supplies and training are a top priority. What level of medical preparedness have you made a top priority? You may need to become a key first responder for your family and friends. How prepared are you for this responsibility?
- Network with farmers and gardeners because they can help you learn how to grow food in your organic victory garden. Organic farmers and permaculture people are some of the best resources for you to become friends with.
- Rather than recreate the wheel find several passionate preppers and role model them. Read their articles and blogs and subscribe to their websites. Attend training in person because being prepared requires demanding, demonstrating, and doing experiential learning and training with experts.
