Featuring: Mayor Jack Monnett

For the vast majority of Americans we leave the politics to the politicians — but why is that?  Is that the way it is supposed to work?

There really are a lot of ways to get involved in our communities, but it seems that most of us do not know where or how to get started.

What does this have to do with preparedness?  Pretty much everything, because when serious trouble hits we will all be in the same boat together.  We better be sure that there are enough lifeboats available, and that they are not full of holes. And we must be sure that the people in the lifeboats have brought sufficient emergency supplies for the trip to shore.

If these preparedness activities are not available in your area, you can help your community get ready. Your involvement is needed because this is meant to be a government “Of the People, By the People, For the People.”  Make it so, or we all go down together.

I’d also recommend that you listen to the interview with Mayor Monnett from January 2015.


Instructor: Jim Phillips
Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”
