The Prep Den Plan


Build your plan.

Get specific about the details including: Who are you responsible for? What duration would you like to cover? What level of preparation would you like to attain? Which types of scenarios do you primarily want to prepare for?


Analyze your plan.

Are you prepped and ready in a few areas but maybe don’t have much accomplished in others? Most of us are not 100% prepared in every way so, zero-in on those weaker areas and start thinking through how you can fortify them.


Take action.

Everyone from beginner to expert can continue to expand their knowledge, bolster their supplies and build their community connections. Make becoming more safe and resilient a regular part of your schedule.
