SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- The Preppers and Patriots Expo continues Aug. 17 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel on Glenstone and Kearney in Springfield, Mo.

“The slogan for the expo is two days that can save your life, and we are doing our best to live up to that standard. We’ll have approximately 30 speakers over the two days covering self-reliance and disaster preparedness topics,” says event organizer Mike Slack. “We are lucky to have several quality speakers both from Missouri and out of state, and many quality vendor exhibitors.”

Topics include natural disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes and pandemics, and economic collapse.

Speakers will cover alternative energy such as solar power, wind power, making biodiesel, wood gas, and small steam engines for electricity generation. Others will cover water filtration, long-term storage food, survival in the wilderness, home prepared antibiotics and medicines and how to suture a wound when no doctor is available.
