Becoming A Practical ‘Prepper’

Becoming A Practical ‘Prepper’

Hollywood and television have portrayed doomsday preppers many times before.

Usually they’re depicted as survivors of post-apocalyptic events where little life is left, but according to those in the community, real life preppers have nothing to do with fiction and everything to do with perceived threats.

They say their numbers are spiking quickly because of recent uncertainty over safety and perceived threats.

Benjamin Gilmore of Fort Worth is a self-proclaimed prepper, and runs a social media group dedicated to prepping and helping new preppers embrace the lifestyle.

He says the growing numbers of people embracing the prepper lifestyle are “average Joes” worried about fending for themselves.

Gilmore defined preppers as “people who try very hard to prepare for disasters as they come.”
