Hello All,

I have been a Volunteer Fire Fighter, An EMT, and for the last 21 years I have been a Safety Professional for large companies and institutions accross the country.  I have chosen to be a rep for Shelf Reliance not because I think it will make me rich, but because I like the products.  Also, with two growing kids in an area waiting for a major quake, I want to be prepared.

Are you Ready? 

Take a look and try some of the products you see here.  Some you will want for daily life, and some you may want to set aside for a rainy day.

Let me know what YOU think.

Prep & Pantry App

December 7, 2012


Welcome to our little corner of the world.  We hope that in some small way we can help others become better prepared for whatever hard times may befall us.

This FIRST POST is not a self serving one, but instead is a tip to help you better organize your Personal Pantry, your Stash, your Home Store or whatever you call the food and gear you have set aside for a bad day.

My recommendation for a cool organizational tool is the Prep & Pantry App - Ittp://  I have been laboriously trying to maintain a running excel spreadsheet of our "Pantry" and found the Prep & Pantry Application at the Apple Store. My kids and I were able to quickly scan our entire inventory in an afternoon, assign items to their individual storage locations, enter expiration dates, and set up a minimum quantity monitoring system so if we use something it automatically gets added to the shopping list.

Yesterday a new shipment of supplies came in and in a matter of minutes I had scanned everything in, assigned it a location, and stashed it away... I even impressed my wife!

There are a few things I would like added to the application so I contacted the developer and found out that the ideas I had were the very things he was already working on for the next upgrade... Yesterday a fresh order came in adn in minutes I had impressed my wife with how fast I had it entered and organized.

There are a few features I would like to see added and when I contacted the applications writer I discovered that he is already hard at work trying to develope those features. Counting the kids that is a total of 8 thumbs up!
