Prepared Not Unprepared - The Ready Center

Below is a link to a very short narrative sharing two fictitious conversations that take place immediately after an EMP attack on the United States. One conversation is between a husband and wife who are prepared for disasters. The other is between a husband and wife who are NOT prepared for disaster.

Although it is a very short read (3-5  minutes), it does an excellent job of communicating the possible realities of those who prepare, and those who do not.  Enjoy.

And as always, if we can help you and your family prepare in anyway, we would be honored to do so.

All our best,

Essential Oils for Disasters - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

If you know my family, you know that we’ve become oily over the last year and a half. Did we strike black gold? Not so much… but I did find a key to keeping my family healthy for years to come.

It all started in April of 2013. The long story short is that I went from floored with a headache to no problems in 20 minutes without any OTC medications. As I did my research, I found that Young Living Essential Oils pure and of the highest quality. What was better to me is that I didn’t even have to worry about any side effects for me or the baby I was carrying.

Essential Oils Dropper - The Ready CenterWhen I brought the oils home, I obviously wanted to my husband to approve, but how would I explain why I chose Young Living and how they contributed to our family’s self-sufficiency? Then I found it. These oils don’t expire while the OTC and prescription medications do.  How is that possible? Because these oils are 100% pure, they kill off mold, bacteria, viruses and anything else that would threaten their shelf life. As long as they’re kept in a cool dark place, the molecular structure remains intact and (more…)

The Ready Center - Life Straw 2

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

The recommendation that we make in the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series are usually pretty broad.  We do our best to leave color, style, brand, etc. up for your choosing.  However this time we’re not going to do that.  Nothing about this recommendation can or should be left for interpretation, so let me make this crystal clear for you:  We want you to buy yourself a LifeStraw.

This is the one and only time during the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series that we will deliberately tell you to go out and purchase a very specific brand of product.  This is not a sales gimmick for us.  The Ready Center is not “in bed” with LifeStraw or vice versa.  As a matter of fact, The Ready Center doesn’t even sell the LifeStraw.  The reason for this plainly stated recommendation is simple:  It’s an awesome (more…)

NBC Revolution Power is Everything - The Ready CenterOn May 9, 2014, bad news came to those of us who have come to appreciate the American Post-Apacalyptic television genre.  NBC announced that it would not  renew Revolution for a 3rd season.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of viewing Revolution, it really is an outstanding show.  It came from the director of IronMan and was produced by J.J. Abrams (the guy who brought us LOST).

Revolution takes place 15 years after the start of a worldwide, permanent electrical-power blackout.  All electricity on Earth was suddenly disabled at a moment’s notice.  Trains and cars stopped where they were, ships went dead in the water, and aircraft fell from the sky and crashed.  No cell phones, no working gasoline pumps, no running water, no grocery stores full of products, and for many people, no hope.  People were forced to adapt to a world without electricity over the next fifteen years.  The story (more…)

The Ready Center Tactical

I found another old email from a friend and thought I’d share it.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If you don’t own a gun, you should get one and learn how to use it.

A: Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B: Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

C: Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

D: Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

E: Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a slug being chambered when you cock a shotgun)

F: The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

H: If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

J: In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

K: If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about? (I call it being prepared)

L: You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language. (more…)
