Second annual Sustainable Preparedness Expo - back by popular demand! Don't miss the Northwest's premiere preparedness expo. Come to learn valuable info at over 20 excellent seminars & breakout sessions, connect with the thousands of preparedness-minded attendees we are expecting, obtain hard to find equipment, supplies and advice you need from the wide variety of quality vendors present at their booths. It's a one-of-a-kind experience you won't want to miss! U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett will deliver the keynote address on electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and preparedness.

Over the last century, America has transitioned into the Technology Age with unparralelled abandon. As a result, the average lifestyle has become increasingly comfortable with every possible convenience available. But there are consequences. Americans in general have passed from a noble self-reliant lifestyle to servile dependence upon the current infrastructure for even the most basic necessities of life. Most families are no longer capable of producing or aquiring their own water, food or heat without the aid of the power company, grocery store or other entity.

Conventional preparedness stresses stocking up on certain items so as to "coast" through the unforeseen emergency. While this is certainly a good first step, it simply is not a satisfactory long-term solution. Why not live a lifestyle with Sustainable Preparedness already built in? This is the goal of the Sustainable Preparedness Expo--to provide the Inland Northwest with the tools, information and resources to initially implement short-term preparedness and then transition into Sustainable Preparedness!
