The American Preppers Network is a non-profit corporation and part of a growing international movement of people who call themselves preppers. The network is organized by state and regional blogs with a main forum and state forums as well. The member bloggers who join the organization are volunteers who are dedicated to providing free information on survival, preparedness and sustainability.
A.N.T.S has teamed up with The American Preppers Network to provide an A.N.T.S forum and colony sub forums for members in every state. If no one has started a colony in your area, think about starting one yourself.
Colonies are not required, but joining or forming a colony with friends and neighbors in your state, adds an extra level of preparations to your A.N.T.S survival plan.
Local colonies allow members to meet up with one another to practice and learn new skills as well as discuss plans for what they would do if a wide spread level 2 disaster was to strike and disable all communications.
