Learning to Transition

From Zero Ready…. to Crisis Ready…. to Lighthouse Ready®

Lighthouse Ready’s staff of professionals has extensive emergency, disaster, and crisis response backgrounds. Many of us have spent our entire lifetimes in pursuit of these careers.

But with all of our backgrounds and experience, the realization came that even though we are the experts at emergency response, we were lacking in being prepared for an ongoing large scale event.

We invite you to take the journey as we try to impact as many people as possible in preparing for a future of uncertainty to a future of hope and faith.

It’s Time To Take Action!

Concepts, Products, & Solutions For You To Prepare….

Navigating Uncertain Times Requires Preparation!   What to purchase, where to purchase, and knowing all of the options seems overwhelming! How much food? How much water? What am I missing?

What Do We REALLY Need During Uncertain Times?  We are not talking about luxuries that are nice to have; rather, what is truly essential? We draw upon our rich pool of knowledge and experience to introduce our answer to these questions:  Our Shield of Preparation.


The Shield of Preparation

The Essentials: Food, Water, Shelter, Critical Tools, Medical, Faith & Tribe

“Our Missions at Lighthouse Ready: Help You Become
Crisis Ready”

What Do We and Our Families REALLY Need to Prepare? 

And not just what is good or nice to have….but what is essential!  And if it is essential, can our families (let alone our extended families we feel responsible for) even afford those essentials? If so, what would or should those essentials be?


Our Mission: Educate, Equip, Connect!

The mission of Lighthouse Ready® is to help you become Crisis Ready using our Ready Now! Preparedness Workshops.   When you and your family become Crisis Ready, which is not only doable but readily achievable, then and only then can you serve others and be Lighthouse Ready®.  In essence, if you don’t put your oxygen mask on first, you will never be able to help others around you during a crisis.

Our mission is to do the majority of the research for you with our comprehensive Ready-Lists!  We draw upon our rich pool of knowledge and experience to constantly search worldwide for the best products and solutions to meet each of the Shield of Preparation categories and subcategories.  Access to the Ready-Lists! can be found here: (Click Here)


But What is REALLY Essential to Have? 

The majority of all the items included in our Ready-Lists are sold by other stores, vendors and online/retail outlets.  The links to these products are provided to you as a service.   Lighthouse Ready has consolidated the evaluation process and needed products into three (3) selection priorities:     

1.  “Crisis Essentials® – ESSENTIAL items that each household in America should and MUST have.     

2.  “Good to Have” – Items that Lighthouse Ready® staff believes would be extremely helpful in a time of Crisis.     

3.  “Nice to Have” – Items in this category would be helpful but not necessarily essential. We strongly encourage you to research these items and decide for yourself what are the best decisions for your individual preparation needs.


Goal: Unbiased Research to Find
         Best Products & Best Pricing!

Finally, Lighthouse Ready® does not show favoritism to any product or solution.  Our detailed Ready-Lists!for each of the Shield of Preparation categories will provide you the confidence to make your equipment and product selections.  

If we find a product or solution that is better than those we currently showcase or recommend, it will immediately replace the current recommendation. We believe Lighthouse Ready® can be a great resource for you.   Our Network of prepared organizations can be a wonderful support in your quest to becoming “Lighthouse Ready®”.

Our heart and passion is to see America once again have a “civil defense” system of preparation at the grass roots level of our families and communities.  Our preparation, our loved ones, and our Faith will be our strength in difficult times.  We hope you will join us….

Faith is the Center of the Shield
of Preparation

Faith is the belief that propels us forward.

It is the foundation for life in general. But it’s absolutely necessary during a crisis! It is the difference between being a victim or overcomer during troubling times.

People of faith believe that God is with them and that they can overcome impossible odds through His power and strength.

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you have tribulation; but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NASB)


“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NASB)


“The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped? ” Proverbs 28:7 (NASB)


Faith In Action Is Lighthouse Ready®

The concept of moving beyond Crisis Ready to being Lighthouse Ready® is a natural extension of faith. People gravitate towards people of like mind. More importantly, how will people of like mind serve others, even during challenging times?

We believe it is essential to get individual families of faith prepared, joining them with an organization of other like minded individuals, and having the organization be a Lighthouse Ready® entity that is prepared to serve others. And that service is both within their own group as well as the community at large.

If a National Crisis were to happen in the US, we firmly believe that people who have not prepared will go to Churches and other Faith-Based organizations for help and assistance. We have witnessed this time and time again during disasters such as Haiti earthquake.  Lighthouse Ready® believes this will give the churches and faith-based organizations an opportunity to serve, share and benefit the community.



Teams Can Overcome Nearly Any Challenge

Lastly, gathering with others will strengthen the group as a whole. Electricians, physicians, gardeners, carpenters, dentists, and a host of other necessary talents will be contained within the “tribe” to help all involved.

Banding together with others will help the whole and put the Lighthouse Ready organization in a position to serve others. See our section on Lighthouse Ready® Workshops for more information on how you can be a part of a Lighthouse Ready organization. read more >

God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and mountains fall into the ocean depths; even if the seas roar and rage, and the hills are shaken by the violence!  Nations are terrified, kingdoms are shaken; God thunders, and the earth dissolves. But the Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.”  Psalm 46 (GNT)

In Challenging Times, Faith Must Reach Beyond Ourselves to a
Higher Source!

Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord you God is with you
wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (NASB)
