“My supply of Wise Company food came in real handy. In September, errors at an Arizona power plant caused blackouts as far west as my house in San Diego. While other folks were buying up everything from the grocery stores, my family and I lit candles and ate our food storage! I save propane, so we heated water and cooked our Wise emergency food packages that way.”

Staying Calm in Emergencies

Some people undergo amazing transformations in emergencies: They can make a solid plan and tell everyone what to do in calm voice. The rest of us freak out, yell and drop things. The good news is, the rest of us can learn the ability to stay calm in an emergency. Here are some tips from survival and medical experts:
Get educated. The number one thing you can do to stay calm is to be relatively confident that you know what […]

Natural Disaster Map of the U.S.

News headlines announce what seems like a disaster de jour lately, with the Colorado Floods, and California Wildfires taking center stage so far this fall. We all know that certain regions of the country are more susceptible to certain types of natural disasters than others, but graphics like this bring the reality into sharp focus. “Wow! That could’ve been you, or me,” we think as we run our eyes across the landscape of nature’s terrifyingly powerful possibilities.
One thing this […]

Burglar Proofing

Having your home burgled (yes, that’s a real word) is traumatic even if you have insurance to cover what’s stolen or the thieves don’t make off with much. Protecting your safety and sense of security is even more important than protecting your stuff.  During an emergency or power outage, thieves can take advantage of downed security systems, overwhelmed law enforcement and blackouts, so take some time to make sure your home and outbuildings are secure. Here are some tips […]

“I’m in a dwindling industry business-wise, and things are getting tighter and tighter at my house. My kids have really made some sacrifices to pitch in, but food is harder to budget for. I bought some Wise emergency more than a year back, for disaster preparedness, and we’ve actually pulled some entrees out of the bucket to help with our budget.
It’s not over, this tough situation, but our Wise food storage supply is definitely helping us through it. […]


Saving the Honeybee

Preppers talk a lot about gardening because the ultimate preparation is being self-sufficient, or mostly self-sufficient, in a way that lasts for generations. However, we’re never truly self-sufficient because we are always dependent on Earth’s systems. For example, we need it to rain, we need sunshine and we need worms to break down organic matter so soil builds up nutrients. We even need things that are hard to appreciate like spiders, vultures, snakes and sharks. And…bees.
By now you probably […]

“My story is probably different from any other than you’ll ever hear. My daughter has been diagnosed with lymphoma and the insurance company refusing to cover any cost because of the fact that they say it is a preexisting condition. This has caused us to use the Wise Food products that we bought in the past to continue to be able to eat. Even though we have not used Wise in a natural disaster it’s still a disaster in […]
