The concepts of civilian and governmental preparedness have been with us for centuries, almost as long as we have been curious about the future and what dangers it might hold for us.
Humans have been “Preppers” almost from our very beginnings. We banded together and helped each other survive the world around us so we could grow and prosper.
When we formed settlements; we often built walls and moats to protect us, not only from all the predatory animals, but from invasion by others too. We observed the world around so we could anticipate natural threats to our lives. We even ‘commissioned’ patrols and watches to keep an eye out for any danger.

It's been a long road to maturity, but our roots now extend wide and go deep ;-}
