Welcome To Practical Preppers

For over 10 years, Practical Preppers has been providing off-grid living solutions to families everywhere. Our passion is to help others establish their off-grid “oasis” that they can depend on and thrive in even during a disaster or emergency. In addition to consultations and installations, we also offer an online store that is a one-stop-stop for independent living. So whether you are preparing ahead for emergencies, living in a remote area, or just pursuing a more sustainable lifestyle in general, Practical Preppers is where you need to be!

Ways That You Should Prepare

There are several ways that you can prepare your family to safely endure an emergency situation. Below are the areas that everyone should consider.

Developing multiple plans on communication with those on the retreat and ways to gather information from short and long distances

Population density, proximity to nuclear power, water sources, military bases, farms, etc. are all things to consider with location

Technical information concerning medications and alternative healing methods

Efficient ways to source, produce, and use renewable energy to power, heat, and cool your property

Long term and short term food storage plans as well as strategies to resupply food
