Frank Mitchell is the creator of the Family Survival System. He’s also a military policeman with training in every type of crisis scenario, an expert in US Army small arms, a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a personal defense expert, and he holds over 60 FEMA related disaster certifications. This is someone who has been living and breathing survivalism his entire life. In fact, he has been in the wilderness for weeks at a time with nothing but his skills.
Frank also has a wife and two sons. During his career he has had to put on his riot gear and watch as communities descend into chaos after a disaster, and the thought of his family being caught unprepared in a situation like that is what motivated him to develop his Family Survival System.
Unfortunately, Americans are less prepared for disaster than the citizens of almost any other nation. Their ability to consume more than they produce (thanks to the U.S. dollar’s status as the reserve currency of the world) has caused them to take their prosperity for granted. They don’t bother to prepare for disasters because they assume the government will somehow save them. What they don’t realize is that if the government doesn’t cut spending, it won’t even be able to save itself.
Maybe you’re not the average American. Maybe you realize just how precarious our situation really is and you’ve been looking online for guidance. Maybe that’s how you found this site. There are a lot preparedness guides, but most of them are about dealing with disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes. Only a few of them tell you what to do in a long-term disaster like an economic collapse. If you don’t know how to make it on your own for several months, you’ll either end up in a FEMA camp or dead.
I’m not trying to scare you, but reality is scary. America has been riding a bubble of false confidence for decades now and the bottom is about the drop out. The good news is that if you start prepping right now you should be able to get your family ready before it’s too late. You don’t want to be one of the ones who is surprised when the shit hits the fan and wishing you had done something to get ready.
Frank Mitchell is an example of someone who made prepping a top priority. After the financial crisis of 2008 he started writing down everything he knew about survivalism and created several checklists to make sure his family was fully prepared. Everything from long-term power outages to food shortages to home invasion is covered in his system. When you follow the steps in the Family Survival System, you can be sure that you’re doing everything necessary to prepare your family for disaster.
