Executive Summary

  • Why prepare?
  • Where to begin?
  • Action is liberating
  • Do what is necessary, knowing it is insufficient
  • Put on your own "oxygen mask" first
  • Seek personal and community resilience
  • Any measure of self-sufficiency is valuable
  • Start with small steps
  • Food, water, shelter, and warmth 

In a recent report entitled It's Time to Prepare, I walked through the financial preparations that one might take to add greater resilience to one's holdings and where they are located. 

But there is more to preparation that just financial savvy. I have been asked repeatedly to provide some guidance on personal preparation. In this report, I will begin the process of sharing my thoughts and experiences about this subject.

There are some basic things that would like to see every person considering for themselves and their family in order to minimize the impact of future disruptions. While I cannot be sure of when, or even if, these disruptions will happen, I am certain of two things:  you can prepare for these changes relatively cheaply, and you will feel better for having done so.
