Frequently asked questions
What is Preparation Concierge?
We are a company devoted to emergency planning and disaster preparation. We offer users advice on how to prepare for disasters, and also a smartly curated list of gear, food, and water solutions.
Does it cost anything to use the site?
No. It is totally free. We are an affiliate site, so when you buy a recommended products on a site like Amazon, we get a small referral fee in return.
Are your gear reviews biased? Do you test the gear?
We are totally unbiased. Because we don't receive any funding or advertising directly from companies that produce the disaster supplies and gear, we are free to only choose the best gear — the stuff we really believe in, and that we use ourselves.
Who are the people behind Preparation Concierge? Who tests the gear?
The founder and many of the contributors behind Preparation Concierge come from the outdoor and adventure media world. We have spent decades working and writing and reviewing gear for magazines and sites like Outside, Outside.com, Men's Journal, Outside Go, National Geographic, Gear, Conde Nast Traveler, and Adventure Journal.
