Preparedness Club Supporters

Here is some information about the supporting companies, and a statement from me on each.


AlertsUSA has been in the risk management business for more than a 10 years. The formal alert service was launched less than 90 days after the attacks of September 11, 2011 by individuals with decades of experience working closely for and with the U.S. government, including members of Congress, in a variety of defense and intelligence matters.

The core focus of the company is leveraging the national wireless infrastructure and mobile technologies to inform customers of breaking events and developments posing a direct threat to the safety and security of U.S. citizens and interests and home and abroad.

Chris says, “I have recently started getting alerts from AlertsUSA.  I try to keep up with current events but I have been tipped off by AlertsUSA several times before I saw the information anywhere else.  I also like getting alerts when I am away from home.  The 25% off is a very good deal and if you’re someone who likes to stay “plugged in” to news, I think you’ll really enjoy it.”

Today, Bruce and Phyllis Hopkins run their business, out of their home with a 2,500 square foot warehouse out back (Phyllis running it full time and doing the bulk of the work along with their daughter, Allison), dropshipping the highest quality dehydrated and freeze-dried foods—and other emergency supplies—direct from the manufacturer to you, and warehousing the canned meats, canned cheese, canned butter and diatomaceous earth in their own warehouse. Best Prices Storable Foods (aka Internet Grocer) is truly looking out for your interests . . . at the best prices for you!

Chris says, “The Internet Grocer is one of the first prepper-type food stores I visited on the internet when I started prepping.  Their prices are very good (even better with the Preparedness Club discount) and I like the new site design.”
Offer: 5%-10% off depending on purchase
Camping Survival

From Thomas J. Sciacca, President; In January 2002, the company started I love the outdoors, am a former Marine, and enjoy hunting, camping, playing outdoors with our kids and practicing urban survival while enhancing my wilderness survival skills. I therefore started this new army / navy, survival type store on the internet. It’s not about the END OF THE WORLD – It’s not about surviving a hypothetical PLANE CRASH – It’s about the SATISFACTION YOU GET knowing you can take care of yourself and/or your family in ANY SITUATION, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!

Chris says, “Camping survival was the first site I purchased non-food related preps from online.  They are also one of the first sites to support Prepared Christian by buying ad space.  They have given lots of paracord away to the Prepared Christian community.”

Deepwoods handcraft1

We currently reside in and operate out of Wasilla, AK. I was raised in southern KY, my wife in TN. I spent my high school years in MI before moving back to KY and eventually getting married and moving out to NC. My background is in construction (skilled manual labor). One day I decided to try to apply those skills in a different medium, leather being my choice for a first attempt. Needless to say, my first few projects were catastrophes. Not being easily discouraged, I pressed on until I figured out a way to make the leather work make sense the same way a construction site does. After starting a family in NC, a series of short adventures landed us in Chugiak, AK (if you ever care to hear about it, chat me up sometime…). Now I am a full-time custom leather crafter raising a family on the doorstep of America’s Last Frontier.

Chris says, “I have only recently stumbled upon Deepwood Handcraft.  I am blown away at how beautiful the bags are.  I have been looking at leather messenger type bags for a couple years, and the bags from Deepwood Handcraft are works of art.  Not only that, but you can have them custom made to meet your needs.  The prices are on par with other handmade leather good, but with the 25% off for Preparedness Club Members, they are a steal!”
Offer: 25% custom made leather goods

My name is Wrex Johnson, owner of WCJ Sales. I’m a Father, Veteran, and Patriotic American Christian. In light of recent events it has become apparent that things in our country are not getting better anytime soon. We are in big financial trouble with no end in sight! When a natural or manmade disaster happens it takes time for the government to respond leaving the people that are affected to fend for themselves. Making us our own first responders. Make a difference and be prepared to provide first aid and other critical lifesaving necessities for your families and others nearby in immediate need. My goal is to provide you, the TRUE first responder, with these products. That way you are prepared to handle ANY type of emergency situation with confidence. WCJ SALES is a registered Guardian Representative and we are proud to be able to offer this to you as an affordable solution to be prepared for an event that we pray will never happen. But if it does, I pray that you are prepared to take care of yourself, you’re families and your neighbors. God Bless.

*These survival products were designed using advice from experts in the emergency preparedness industry. They follow guidelines given by government agencies and non-profit preparedness organizations.

Chris Says, Wrexford and I agree that we need to be ready to be our own first responders. I also appreciate that he is taking 10% off of his commission, when distributers do not have to. He feels strongly about helping you prepare and is putting his money where his mouth is. Thanks Wrex!

MinimusMinimus began when we (the Shrater family) were on a vacation to a cottage in New Hampshire. When we realized we would need to throw away several bottles of condiments at the end of our trip, we thought, “wouldn’t it be great if there was one place you could go for the small packets of condiments — better yet, a place to get all of your travel accessories and travel size item needs?”  Since that initial idea, we’ve grown to include a variety of categories of travel size and trial size items. Many of the items are not available for retail sale anywhere else. Our offerings continue to grow with the help of our customers’ input.
Chris says, “The first time I heard of Minimus was when Trudee’s cousin placed an order to make care packages to send to her husband and company who were serving in the Air Force overseas.  When Minimus heard their products were going to the troops, they stepped up and gave a generous discount.  We have since used them for filling BOB needs that we had a hard time finding anywhere else.”
Offer: Free tube of Banana Boat Sunscreen with each purchase.

“Where will you be when you run out of protein? Of the three factors that make up your survival diet, protein is the most important. Your body needs the amino acids from protein to perform every reaction in your life. Without them, energy and mental function starts to fade within days, and organ failure starts to set in within 2-3 weeks.

The bad news is, the most storable forms of protein are the least complete! If a protein doesn’t have a full complement of the eight essential amino acids, you’ll be set up for deficiency. The most complete forms of protein (meat, eggs, dairy) are the hardest to store, heaviest, and easiest to spoil. That is, until now.

SurvivAMINO™ is a revolutionary new product that has been proven to act as a total replacement for protein in the most demanding of circumstances. With a full complement of the eight essential amino acids, you have everything you need to survive in a fraction of the space and weight. One bottle is equivalent to the amount of protein you need for a week! And best of all, it’s a shelf stable formula made of the purest, crystalline amino acids from top medical manufacturers worldwide. No binding agents, no additives. Vegetarian, gluten, soy and GMO free. Get yours today while supplies last!”

Chris Says, I wrote a review on SurvivAMINO that can be seen here. I think this product would be a great fit for BOB’s. I don’t think bugging out is a good idea for most situations. However when you do need to BO, there is a good chance you’ll be expending more energy than usual and how much protein do you have in your BOB’s? Having this in your BOB is a good way to make sure you have enough protein, and in a lightweight container.

Offer: $5 off each bottle

 SurvivalGearBagsOur goal is to provide you the bags and tools to build your own, customized, emergency kits. We have found that most pre-built kits are filled with items of poor quality, items you don’t need, or are lacking essential items. Our site lets each individual choose what will work best for them. Whether you are building a kit from scratch, adding a few items to an existing one, or quickly assembling a full kit for a loved one, we have what you need. We hope to get you and your family better prepared for any emergency that comes your way.

Chris Says, I’m pretty excited that Survival Gear Bags has agreed to support the Preparedness Club. Not only do they have a great selection of bags, but they carry a nice selection of survival and tactical gear.
