We specialize in short and long term emergency preparedness.
Wikipedia says "Preparedness refers to the state of being prepared for specific or unpredictable events or situations."
The first question almost every new customer asks when they visit our retail store in Portland (yes, we are bricks and mortar too) is..."prepared for what?"
"What if," is our reply.
"What if something as simple as a power outage occurs and lasts longer than you expect? If it's winter, would you potentially be in an emergency survival situation?"
We then ask our customers - and we're asking you right now - to consider your own situation.
What emergencies are you not prepared for - yet?
What survival supplies do you need?
Do you need MREs? (what are MRE's? "Meals Ready To Eat" that's what).
Do you need long term food storage? (We stock Mountain House and Alpine Aire freeze dried foods which last for years and retain their nutrition and taste).
Buckets of wheat? We have them ready to go. And the Country Living Grain mill too. ( to grind the wheat info flour )
Those are just some starter thoughts.
We can provide everything from food storage kits to emergency kits, medical kits, solar ovens, Berkey water filters, Katadyn water filters on through to superior Under Ground or Underground Shelters - fully stocked if you wish.
When it comes to emergency preparedness at any level, we have the experience and the products to cover your survival preparedness needs.
Being prepared in advance is far better than being caught by surprise (an earthquake comes to mind) and wishing you had been wise enough to stock up on a 72-hour emergency kit (for example) which all emergency manamgement agencies, two former presidents, and Home Land Security recommend as a bare minimum.
We say that should be just the start, because most emergencies last a lot longer than that, especially in these uncertain times we all live in.
That's why we engaged consultants with decades of experience - more experience in fact than any other company on the 'net. So we have the knowledge and experience to help you prepare for most any emergency that may come your way.
Where this hits you (very nicely) in the pocket book is something to consider - because our policy is to meet or beat any reasonable price - to make sure we stock the best and at the best prices - and to do everything we can to help you in your preparedness planning.
