Emergency Supplies

Non-preppers are people that do not prepare for any inconveniences in their daily lives due to unseen emergencies. They do not stock pile extra water or food or safety supplies and if an emergency should arise they must rely on rescue workers for their survival. Preppers act in the opposite manner by buying emergency supplies and storing useful items such as food, water, power generators and basic first aid supplies just in case of natural or political emergency. Preppers are prepared for an emergency situation and this situation does not have to be the end of the world. It could be something as common as losing power due to a heavy storm or being stranded due to mechanical failure or accident of a vehicle. The term prepper comes from the word preparation. So unlike the general population, preppers are preparing for a disruption of the normal distribution of food, water, electrical power and even medical treatment.

Preppers VS Survivalists

Preppers and survivalists are terms used synonymously however the two personality types can be polar opposites.


This group of people can be generalized as normal everyday people that like living in their community. They enjoy the modern conveniences that come with living in a modern society defined by laws and social contacts. Preppers have just come to the realization that there might be an emergency crisis sometime in future and they should not be reliant on the state or national government for assistance. They feel the need and obligation to protect themselves and family in times of crisis. They do not wish to go live in the wilderness or live off the land they just want to be prepared for any temporary loss of necessities such as food, water and medical attention. Preppers buy emergency survival kits and try to be self-efficient for 3-4 days which has been the average time of recovery/rescue after major disasters. They look as preparation for emergency events as a beneficial and potentially lifesaving hobby.


Survivalists on the other hand tend to be a little more extreme in their preparation for future emergency events. They store food, water and they buy emergency preparation kits just like the Preppers do, however they tend to stock pile more guns ammo and other protective weapons. They usual keep their survival kits and other emergency items in survival bags. Their bags are sometimes referred to as (BOB) "Bug Out Bags" or (GOOD) "Get Out Of Dodge" bags. Unlike emergency preppers, survivalists train for living off land. Real survivalists actually train to live without modern economic and societal conveniences. Whereas a prepper might buy "prepper survival kit" that will last 3-4 days, A survivalist kit may have enough food and supplies to last several months. Extreme survivalist, train for a complete societal meltdown and train to live off the land entirely.

While some doomsday preppers might receive some-kind of emergency training survivalist go further. They seek out training on how to living off the land and surviving in the wilderness. They also usually place an emphasis on firearms, weapons and hand to hand combat training. There is also a gender difference between preppers and survivalists. Most survivalists tend to be male with very few women claim to be survivalist (Note To Survivalist: Bring a Woman). However preppers have a more balance gender membership with many more women claiming to be preppers.
