About Us

How We're Helping


We are a nonprofit organization focused on helping Rural Communities become  Resilient...with the energy-infrastructure to be Prosperous...and Secure.  To help  you and your neighbors Shelter in Place or accept Evacuees....especially during power-loss emergencies.  With good planning and solid solutions Human and Monetary Losses will be reduced.  Our TEAMS provide Technical Assistance and Training for Rural Communities.

FEWSS = Food, Energy, Water, Sanitation and Shelter


The COMMON ELEMENT for these Critical Infrastructure Decisions is ENERGY...what happens if our electric power goes out?  Can Farms produce Food?  Can I refrigerate my medications?  Will elevators work? 

Will my Water be Clean?  Can my Business keep operating? Check with YOUR Community Leaders about local Resiliency & Energy Assurance Plans.
