    Welcome! Please introduce yourself? (Name, age, gender, location for example)

    Curtis, 32, male, Utah, Wasatch Front

    Since when are you into survival and preparedness and what made you get into it?

    I stated about 2 years ago with just gaining knowledge. It has only been about 8 months that i have actually started prepping. Part is my own fault, but i found it hard to organize all the information i received and figure out were to start. I guess i have 2 things that helped get me into prepping. I was evacuated for a wildfire and realized i had no idea what to do. I have worked in public safety for 13 years, but that day i was lost. A few months later i caught an episode of doomsday preppers and realized i needed to get my family ready for whatever we faced next.

    Why is survival and preparedness important or interesting for you? What scenario are you preparing for?

    You can never be to prepared. Having worked for the fire department i see how unprepared people are for the most minor thing. People get overwhelmed just because they have a family member that is throwing up. I never again will be unprepared.

    I am preparing for any situation really. My focus is on short and mid-length disasters. If TEOTWAWKI does hit, i do have a bug out location. However, i am mostly focusing on natural and man made disasters, with society collapsing in the shadows.

    How would you describe your prepping / survival philosophy? What matters for you?

    Having my family prepared and able to stand without me. I may be at work and will be one of the last people to make it back home. I want to make sure my wife and kids are able to function independently from me. I have a network, but most of us are fire and police. This group allows to pull from a lot of backgrounds, as most fire and police did other trades prior to getting on the departments. We have made plans to assemble our families and watch out for each other.

    Do you have some favorite quotes or words of wisdom you like?

    You are dying and have 30 seconds left, what do you do or say?

    I lived my life with no regrets. I served others when they needed service, and I am proud of the family I have raised to this point.
