Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) Monthly Meeting

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Ross Hall, located at 570 3rd Avenue, Powers, OR 97466.

The main topic is “DISASTER SURVIVAL PLANNING WORKSHOPS FOR FAMILIES”.  This year SWOP will be conducting workshops during the meetings.  Bring your plan to the workshop.  If you do not have a plan to bring that is OK, you will have one to take home when you leave.  Bring paper and pencil.   Attend this workshop to help your family, whether large or small, survive a disaster.

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.  It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help.   Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or
