About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate the public to prepare for and cope with the effects of disasters or emergency situations through training events and seminars while providing assistance in the event of a disaster or emergency situation to local first responders through manpower and the community through emergency funding. 

Community Care 

We are an organization that cares our community. That is why PREP was formed. We have looked around the community and surrounding area and noted that there just simply aren't enough first responders to go around. We have created this company to assist in emergency situations and help prepare the community before disaster strikes. 

A Personal Approach 

As a company, we want to work with you on a personal level. We want to get to know you and what needs you may have so that we can tailor our training to fit your needs. 

Collective Training

We want to bring the training to you. Collectively, we have over 30 years of experience in emergency response training. That training varies from basic safety issues to search & rescue techniques. As the company grows, we will be able to add more training options to you.

501(c)3 Nonprofit

PREP is a Veteran run company as well as a 501(c)3 Nonprofit with good standing in the state of Missouri. We plan to remain as such so that we can provide disaster relief and humanitarian aid when needed to the surrounding area. Our goal is to provide the community with as much assistance as we possibly can in the event of a disaster.
