My husband and I have been personally working in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief since 1992. Over the last 20 + years we have been on the mission, with a passionate drive to help others. We are always learning and sharing! Networking has proven itself time and time again to be the true success to just about anything we do. This is where the prep family comes into play and these are the folks that can help you get through most situations, including getting from point A to point B.

We also love to work with local officials, SMAT, Red Cross, Hearts with Hands, MRMRC, CERT and other preparedness organizations to help families be better prepared for natural and manmade disasters, etc and what do when the 'what ifs' come calling.
Growing up in Central Florida it was generally storms and hurricanes we dealt with. In WNC we have had just about everything, the last 13 years but accept the challenge.

I look forward to meeting and getting to know more like-minded individuals. There is always so much to learn and new ways to do things ;)

Hi Jen and wlecome to the board. It sounds like you and your husband have built up quite an impressive resume. There are more than a few around here that are deep into self sufficiency and sustainability and just about everyone here is on the "prepper wagon" in some way or another. I look forward to reading and learning from the insight you have picked up in the last twenty years. Don't be afraid to jump right on in. If you don't see a topic being discussed, go ahead and kick'er off. We are all here to try and help each other learn to be better prepared.

I thought that a prerequisite of being married to Angery was that you automatically got moderator privileges? :)

Lol, I don't think his wife or my hubby would appreciate that. Angery is a great guy and friend though ;)

Come on, MM! Just look at the avatar! The man looks perfectly normal. How could you mistake him for AA?
