The Goal of Emergency Prep Guy

Our team has one goal in mind, to help you get prepared for any emergency.

By arming you with practical advice and outlining the gear and preps that have (and haven’t) worked for us, we hope to help fast-track your journey to preparedness.

Being prepared is not just about having cool gadgets to get you through an emergency situation. It is about a journey towards self-sufficiency, food security and having the skills to put those fancy gadgets to use when you need them most!

We hope this website will help you on that journey.

For most of my life I have been interested in emergency preparedness. Over the many years things have changed a great deal.

From freeze dried food, to LED lanterns, preparing for an emergency has never been easier.

The continual research I have done over the years has become the basis for this website.

Now it is one of the most trusted sources to learn about emergency preparedness.

I am a passionate gardener and outdoor enthusiast who has been working on building food security through gardening since 2017.

My 6 acre homestead encompasses well over 100 different fruit and nut trees. I also keep an extensive vegetable garden that keeps the freeze dryer and dehydrator running almost constantly.

When not in the garden or the kitchen preserving the harvest, you will find me making compost with the chickens or hanging out with my German Shepherd.

History of Emergency Prep Guy

Emergency Prep Guy was founded by David in 2018 and is the result of over 30 years of his own personal research into preparedness. Motivated by a desired to be able to provide for his family and loved ones, David’s first goal was to store a years worth of food for himself and his family. His emergency preparations have grown from there with a goal of moving towards self-sufficiency.

In late 2022, David passed the mantle onto Simon who plans to continue growing the website with his own experience and skills. With a keen focus on gardening and food security, expect to see the website grow at the same rate his garden does!
