Thousands of people are out there “prepping” for the worst, with various fears of what disaster could send them underground and “off the grid” for weeks, months, even years. For Tom Perez, featured this week on National Geographic Channel's Doomsday Preppers, his greatest fear is a terrorist attack.
A single dirty bomb could cause massive chaos. Tom Perez is prepping for a terrorist attack and suspects it's only a matter of time before one gets through our defenses. He has not worked in 12 years because he spends most of his day prepping and spends much of his family's yearly income on preps.
“You’re gonna talk to your children about drugs; talk to them about prepping,” Perez says.
Is Perez overreacting to an overblown fear, or do you think he is on the right track? Stay tuned and find out more of Tom Perez’s story tonight on Doomsday Preppers, airing on National Geographic Channel at 9 p.m.
