Prepper News Watch

Just a quick note from the editor: Situations seem to be heating up on several levels around the world. Panicking is not recommended, nor is going into debt for preparedness supplies, but if you’ve been thinking about beefing up your preps, now is probably a good time to do so.

We have a number of issues facing us, ranging from economic to food crises to war to terrorism to disease to natural and technological disasters. The current pucker factor is higher than it has been in the past decade or so. Dust off your preparedness plan and start updating it where necessary.
