Category: Full Spectrum Preparedness

The Full Spectrum Preparedness Doctrine is a comprehensive approach to preparedness that organizes preparedness efforts into ten interrelated foundations: The Doctrine of Full Spectrum Preparedness is applicable to all preppers at all preparedness levels in all geographic areas and was created because other preparedness ‘programs’ are too dogmatic, too simple, too complex, too expensive to implement, too focused on a particular type of calamity, too reliant on situations that aren’t universal (owning a farm, having unlimited money or unlimited storage capability) or a combination of the above. The ten overlapping, mutually supportive preparedness fundamentals are: Security Preparedness: Those items, knowledge, skills and people necessary for your protection and security. Includes all aspects of security including, but not limited to physical security, operational security (stealth, keeping a low profile) as well as self-defense. Shelter & Clothing Preparedness: Shelter, clothing and those items and skills necessary to protect you from the elements. Health, Fitness and Medical Preparedness: This fundamental includes everything needed to keep you and your family healthy that’s not more appropriate to another fundamental. This includes everything related to first aid, medicines, medical care, sanitation, and fitness. Transportation Preparedness: Those skills and items necessary to support your family’s transportation needs. This may be the wheelbarrow you require to haul water or the vehicle you plan to use to bug out. Family & Community Support: These are the family and community networks and ties that keep you sane, focused and help you plug any holes you discover in your preps after it’s too late. This also includes certain items necessary for family harmony as well like a deck of cards or perhaps your child’s favorite stuffed animal. Food Preparedness: Food, food preparation and the knowledge and skills necessary to acquire and food. Financial Preparedness: These are your savings, stored wealth and the skills that allow you to make a living. Water Preparedness: Water, water purification and the knowledge and skills necessary to acquire safe, potable water as well as water that’s safe to use for sanitation purposes. Communications Preparedness: Those skills and items necessary to maintain communications within your family or group as well as with the outside would. Cognitive, Mental & Spiritual Preparedness: This is the most important fundamental. This fundamental incorporates the ‘will to live’ with the ability to adapt and can be significantly reinforced by the belief in a higher power.
