September is National Preparedness Month and over the next few days and weeks, we will explore some practical ways you can prepare to protect your family and friends.

Over the last few days I've received several emails and text messages from folks asking about how they can prepare for what many people feel are dark times ahead. I'm not claiming to be an expert in many of these areas, but I do have some experience and training. I also know people who are willing to share their insights in to a variety of these topics. One of those folks is a good friend of mine, Dennis Morris. Dennis owns Tactical Response Resources, is currently in law enforcement and also a firearms instructor.

I asked Dennis to come on the show after receiving an email from a young lady disturbed by the rise in violent crime in the area. She wanted to know what she could do to be more prepared to protect herself and her family.

We'll be featuring more videos soon, so make sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for the latest updates. If you have a question, ask it in the 'comment' section below.
