Morgan Rogue (37), a resident of Alaska, has been preparing to face disaster since 2010.
After being unable charge her phone in a power cut 11 years ago, she realized how bad her situation would become if her electricity was lost forever.
Morgan began to do research into ways to stay prepared, and eventually her and her husband, Josh, became involved in the prepping community – a group of people who share tips on doomsday prepping.
Morgan started to prepare for a zombie-apocalypse, but then she began to investigate other potential disasters so that her family was as safe and secure as possible.

‘So many things are out of our control – natural disasters, car accidents, attacks, contaminated water and so on,’ Morgan explained
‘My phone was low on power, and I didn’t know what I would do if I needed to charge my phone – that sent me down a rabbit hole of ideas.
‘When I first started prepping, it was specifically for one or two types of disasters, but as I continued to prep and become involved in the community, I realized that if I’m prepared for one type of emergency, I’m prepared for it all.
“The more I began prepping, the more extensive and self-reliant my preparations became.
‘So many things are out of our control – natural disasters, car accidents, attacks, contaminated water and so on.
‘Look at 2020, and how unprepared people were for a pandemic – that should give anyone reason enough to have a few weeks of supplies just in case.’
Morgan and her husband are also avid hunters and would use their skills in a disaster to feed their family.
“We run on solar power, generators and, soon, wind power. Morgan said that soon there will be a well with a pump which can run on solar power and a hand pump.
“We have chickens, and we plan to add more.

‘I’m constantly working to learn new skills so that I’m less reliant on others. I don’t like buying bread so I make my own. I discovered that I had to grow the grain, grind it, and harvest wild yeast to make it.
‘Preparedness is a part of my family’s everyday life. We’re all very open about whatever needs to get done.
‘I’ve gotten my kids involved with building their own bug-out bags, as well as helping with inventory, since they were born.
‘My kids bring up preparedness topics all the time – we involve them in everything we do.
‘I encourage my children to be whatever they want to be, but it’s my hope that I will instill self-reliance, self-defense, confidence, and preparedness, so they’re ready for whatever life throws at them.
“You can be prepared while still living a normal, happy life. Preparedness is part of your life – it doesn’t become your life.
“Everyone can be prepared, no matter where they live or how much money they have.” It’s never too late – conquer tomorrow by preparing today.’
