Where to Stay Up to Date on Important Information About Emergency Prepping?

Books for Preppers

I have been in the emergency prepping world for years. While I have a very informative food storage and emergency prepping blog myself, I also follow many other websites, read newsletters as additional resources, and read many blogs I trust. If you’re interested in where to stay up to date on important information about emergency prepping, then this is a great start! I can’t wait to tell you about some of the best emergency prepping resources available.

WaterBricks Large and Small with Spigot

Websites and Blogs is a solid starting point. This website, run by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is packed with official guidelines, checklists, and resources on how to prepare for various types of emergencies. It’s regularly updated with the latest information on natural disasters, terrorist threats, and more. What You Need To Survive A Disaster

It is one of many official government organizations with gov websites to visit. You want to get your information from secure websites to help protect your sensitive information located on your phone or PC.

You can go to specific government websites geared for the information you need, like the CDC that’s dedicated to public health emergencies. As preppers, we value our own health and the healthcare of those we love, like each member of your family.

Besides the National Weather Service, you can check out the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to learn about pending hurricanes, tornadoes, and other severe storms so you can implement your plans for disaster preparedness. I like dealing with official websites so I can feel more confident in the information like emergency alerts.
