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 […]

“On October 29th 2012 hurricane Sandy hit Northeast Ohio. We lost power almost immediately. Let me tell you it was a godsend to have hot meals from Wise while waiting to get power on.
Wise food products are awesome, easy to use and tasty. You need to have access to water for reconstituting it, but beyond that even kids could easily cook this stuff. The selection is amazing and not having to eat the same thing over and over makes […]

“Initially we bought Wise Company foods as a way to have food for camping. Needless to say weeks after getting our Wise packs, we had a three week power outage. First we used canned goods, crackers, and water. Days into it we were so sick of eating the same thing. Thinking of what we could do, we dug into our camping gear and grabbed our Wise packages. Over the next seven days we used Wise food packs, for breakfast […]
