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…)

Thankful - The Ready Center

Well, today is the day.  It’s the one day of the year when everyone (supposedly) takes a moment to be grateful for even the little things we have been blessed with.

The Ready Center is still a new entity in many ways.  We have only been in existence for a little over a year.  Yet despite our relatively short existence, we have so much to be thankful for.

We are thankful for you allowing us to help shape your individual and family preparedness plans.  We are thankful for you supporting this project by making purchases at our Ready Center Store.  And we are thankful for you caring enough about your loved ones to take preparedness seriously.  We are honored to be even a small part of it.

Today as we enjoy the Thanksgiving tradition, we ask that you please take the time to remember and pray for our service men and women who are unable to be with their families.

And if you have a moment, please take the time to comment below and tell us what you are thankful for.  We’d love to hear all about it.

Forever Thankful for You and Your Support,

The Ready Center

$10 Bill The Ready Center

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

It’s that time again!  Time for what…?  Time to take seriously the safety and preservation of you and your family.  Time to take a moment and plan ahead.  Time to pull $20 out of your wallet and invest it in your future.  This month we recommend you take your 20 big bucks and exchange them for two $10 bills.  And for good reason…

As part of the Prepping on $20 a Paycheck series, the goal is to have you stocked with water, food, a pack full of supplies, and $100 emergency cash stocked away for REALLY rainy days.  When it comes to the “cash on hand”, we should all already have the following:

  1. One roll of quarters
  2. Ten $1 bills
  3. Four $5 bills

Total Amount So Far: $40

Today, we want you to bump up your post-apocalypse money stash up to a whopping $60.  The plan is to purposely vary your emergency cash denominations with the intent of you not losing money during barter/haggle (more…)

Veterans Day - The Ready Center

When I started The Ready Center over a year ago, I never realized how much the United States Veteran really was part of my life and community.  I am a veteran.  My wife is a veteran.  My father, grandfather, brother, father-in-law, almost every one of my friends, and 78% of our customers are US Veterans.

To all of you who have served or currently serve:  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  I am truly blessed to live amongst such honored warriors.

With all my heart and all my best,

Brian S. Kiefat
Owner – The Ready Center

Thanksgiving

Hey Ready Center Bloggers!

Today is Thanksgiving.  For many of us, it is a day of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and naps.  And as much as we all enjoy luscious food and long hard naps, it is our wish for you that words, thoughts, and prayers of thankfulness are on your heart, as they are most certainly on ours.  We  have so much to be grateful for, regardless of how things in the personal, financial, political, or international realms appear.  In this country, we have many liberties that most people on this earth have never had the opportunity to experience, and for that, we should be truly grateful.

At The Ready Center, we are eternally grateful for our family and friends, our freedom of speech via writing the Ready Center Blog, and our brothers and sisters in the U.S. Military who are currently in harm’s way on our behalf and are unable to be with their loved ones for this holiday.  We are also thankful for all of you who take the time to read The Ready Center Blog and follow it via email subscription.  Without your support and personal interest in doing what is best for you, your loved ones, and your community, this project would have never taken off.  We are most certainly very humbled and very grateful.

May you be blessed on this wonderful American holiday.

Happy Prepping and Happy Thanksgiving.
