Beyond Customer Service

American Preparedness is a service-disabled, veteran owned business and leading manufacturer and distributor of emergency preparedness kits for government, military, businesses, disaster relief organizations, and individuals and families.

Founded in 1981, American Preparedness is committed to providing products that support our clients during natural and man-made disasters. Our focus on excellence is demonstrated by the review and approval of all of our kits by the American Red Cross through their PDM certification program. We work to employ military veterans and disabled veterans to assemble our kits. Over 51% of all the products in each kit are made in America.

Long-standing vendor relationships allow for highly competitive pricing and delivery timelines. Our in-house assembly capacity offers superior output for every type of customer whether an individual or institution, and for stocked inventory special orders and custom capacity orders. American Preparedness has been recognized by the Under-Secretary of Veteran Affairs for service to the community.

Regular donations of preparedness kits to military families, low income families and school children, through our "Kits for Kids" program have fostered a positive community reputation.
