Someone who is considered a prepper is usually seen as an average person who lives in the country or a middle class suburb somewhere outside the city. You usually never here any hollywood star or CEO of a fortune 500 company who is into prepping and emergency kits and such. Although with a little research, you will see that more people are prepping than you might think. There are many extremely rich individuals who are creating bunkers that are similar to something you would see in the movies. Equipped with air filtration systems, megaton blast doors, multiple levels, and supplies to last years, these bunkers could survive a list of events that would destroy society. According to an article on Forbes.com, “Chris Pollack, president of Pollack+Partners, a design and construction advisor based in Purchase, N.Y., says that while security has always been a given in building homes for his ultra-high-net-worth clients, the spending for home defense has increased markedly over the last five years.” These people aren’t just preparing for an intruder, they are preparing for something much bigger. For example, a large security CEO’s “own home has such a facility in the basement–a space that doubles as a wine cellar. If the “safe core” is compromised or the rooftop helipad (complete with evacuation plans signed into a contract with a local helicopter company) isn’t accessible, the family can retreat to this stronghold, thwarting natural disaster, nuclear holocaust or electromagnetic pulses emitted by the sun.” This specific quote reiterates the same information, being that an EMP or similar disaster is possible/coming. The point of this information is to show that there are an increasing amount of millionaires and billionaires that are investing a large sum of money on bunkers and defense systems. This would generally show that a disaster or terrorist attack, or something similar is inevitable in the near future, or these super elite wouldn’t be spending this much money on it. It also shows that in a event or a nuclear attack or biological weapon release, that humanity wouldn’t be completely wiped out. Now this doesn’t mean that if you not a millionaire you wont make it, any emergency kit will be crucial in a disaster situation. It just means that when it comes to being a prepper, there are more out there an it might seem.
