We are here to help individuals, families, and organizations become self-reliant and individually ready for emergency situations and disasters.  And, to help families and friends deal with these problems together, as a community.

Because there is a need for accurate and reliable information on these subjects, and because governments and other resources are woefully inadequate, 36READY was established.  We welcome individuals and organizations who would like to partner with us to promote our education and readiness initiative.

36READY is operated as a public service.

Our Objective

36READY serves four purposes:  1) to provide training,  2) to serve as a hub to amass training and reliable reference materials, 3) to provide product recommendations and reviews, and  4) to be a place of intersection, where experts and interested people from different walks of life can connect.

Since the 36READY website is dedicated to preparing people and communities, we invite you to participate.  If you have suggestions for us, please contact us.  Our objective is to help you confidently survive a disaster or emergency situation, and also to help you expand your capacity to help others.

In the months ahead, we will continue to add articles on preparedness, recommended supplies and where to find these items, provide product and book reviews, and other information designed to help you plan and get ready for emergency situations.  We are actively looking for contributors who are experts in a field which relates to disaster and emergency-situation readiness.

Being mentally and spiritually prepared for the volatile days ahead is even more important than physical preparations, but is not the focus of this website.  To delve into these topics, Click Here to begin.  This link takes you to a downloadable 2-page PDF that is the place to start this pursuit.

When responsible people prepare, they are response-able.

Join with us, and be 36READY.
