Research on emergency preparedness

Post by 88sport » Sat Feb 02, 2013 8:13 pm

I'm doing a correlational study on preppers vs. hoarders and am having a tough time finding any kind of literature from journal articles for preppers or preparedness or anything along those lines. does anyone have any ideas?
