Who is Joe Ready?


Joe Ready is an active duty Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team leader with more than 20 years of service and multiple ground combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He has a bachelor’s degree in Emergency and Disaster Management and has been interested in prepping and preparedness for close to two decades.

Joe’s experience hunting bombs and bomb-makers across Iraq and Afghanistan give him a unique perspective about what it means to live in a real SHTF environment where the government is almost non-existent and the parts of the government that remain are corrupt and only out for themselves.

He’s also spent years studying natural disasters and their effects. This has allowed him to develop expertise in how to prepare for major disasters before they strike, how to survive during them, and how to recover after they’ve passed!

Joe is an active member of the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) and the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA).
