The Northern Nevada Prepper’s Group is a collection of family oriented people and our goal is to share the skills necessary to help you and your family prepare for manmade or natural disasters and to promote a self-reliant lifestyle.  This group was developed following the principles and guidelines of the American Preppers Network. We welcome families and individuals who want to learn the skills necessary to prepare for and care for themselves and their families in the event of a disaster or something as simple as a minor issue. We are not a militia. We do not promote anti-government behavior or rhetoric. We do not condone hate groups, taking up arms against American citizens or violating the law. We do not hope for and promote anarchy or the end of the world and apocalyptic events. We welcome families who want to learn to be prepared and self-reliant. We have no other agenda.
 
Please bring a sack lunch, water, and sunscreen.  Dress appropriately for the weather.
 
If interested, please RSVP to Glenda Dudley at kg7mzo@arrl.net.  There is a maximum of 20 kids, so please reply as soon as possible.  If you sign up and are not able to attend, please let me know so that I can fill your spot.
