The word is getting out that preppers are setting the standard high when it comes to preparedness. Newsweek did an article about Lisa Bedford, or for many preppers who have come to know her, the Survival Mom. The article, The Rise of the Preppers consists of how she is preparing for the well being of herself and her family in the case there are financial setbacks as well as disasters. It is a relief to see the media such as Newsweek positively shed light on prepping enthusiasts as well as suggest that individuals be ready for an emergency situation and be self sufficient. Additionally, it is encouraging to see normal people that have concerns being proactive and doing as much as they can to prepare for a given disaster situation.
The preparedness path really is insurance… If we had to rely on ourselves, we would have the food, the supplies and that would free up the money we did have for a house payment or free up the money for an emergency medical bill.
