Some prepper groups encompass an entire
small town or community, the people intend to stay in
their own homes but help provide mutual security and
aid, these types of groups are rare.
The most common type of group I have
found is a loosely organized group of people that may or
may not live close to each other but have general plans
to provide mutual aid. They might meet together on a
regular basis to discuss different scenarios, take
classes together, and combine orders for bulk
purchasing. I have meet many of these types of groups;
some very organized others just going by the seat of
their pants. A prepper group like this might be
beneficial during the planning stage but in an actual
event the distance between them will make mutual aid
The next prepper group is a group of
like-minded individuals that have made a plan, practiced
their plan, and have a mutually agreed upon location to
execute that plan as a group. They live fairly close to
each other but instead of trying to stay in their
various locations recognize the importance of being
together to provide strength in numbers.
Putting together a prepper group does not
mean you find a group of survivalist and band together,
there are several things you need to consider when
deciding if someone is right for your group. Factors
1. Religious Beliefs
2. What are
they prepping for?
3. What do
they bring to the table?
4. How many
in their group and their relationship to each other
committed are they?
When we look at forming our prepping
group we have to consider if the people are like-minded,
their skills, commitment, and who they bring with them.
We also need to consider how many people we will need to
accomplish what needs to be done.
