Doomsday preppers: What you can learn from the man who’s prepared for almost any threat

Preppers are people who are always prepared for emergencies, whether they be natural or man-made disasters.

One such prepper, Curt La Haise, maintains a basement stockpile with a seven month supply of food and other items he’d need in an extended emergency.

A survival equipment business in Burlington helps people prepare, and a company spokesperson said business has been booming since tensions with North Korea have escalated.

But La Haise says he isn’t as worried about North Korea as he is about a powerful tornado.

The American Red Cross maintains a comprehensive list of the items one should have at the ready.
