Welcome to Optimum Preparedness!

Optimum Preparedness has been helping people prepare for disasters for over 25 years, long before the word Prepper became popular. But Preppers we are, and hopefully so are you. We offer a full line of long term food storage products like Mylar bags & oxygen absorbers, robust medical & first aid kits, long term food storage, water filters, a huge selection of bulk organic spices, a Dummy-Proof portable stove that is safe to use indoors or in an underground shelter, books on canning, gardening & traditional skills and much more.

 

If you are just starting out with prepping, you will find a lot of very helpful information throughout our website. We don't want to just sell you stuff - we want you to know you are getting the Best in every category. And we want to make sure that you know how to use all of it.

If you have questions, we have answers. We test and use all we sell. Whether it is our solar dynamo lanterns & radios, survival tools, emergency essentials or mylar bags & oxygen absorbers we provide first hand feed back. Check out our Blog here.

Katadyn Ceradyn TRK Drip Filter

Good disaster & emergency preparedness starts with having safe water to drink. Pour lake, pond, river or rain water into the top compartment and get clear, safe drinking water from the tap in the lower compartment. The Swiss-made Katadyn Ceradyn Drip Filter is good for 39,000 gallons of water (think 7-10 years of regular use!), and because of silver ions embedded in the filter elements bacteria can not grow on the filter. No other drip water filter can match this filter. Plus this water filter filters out everything down to 0.02 microns absolute.
