Curt was motivated to prepare for “anything and everything” after experiencing disaster first-hand in 1982. He answered the door of his California home to sheriff’s deputies who ordered him to evacuate immediately, due to encroaching wildfires. Neither Curt nor his family was ready. Vowing “never again,” Curt started prepping. He has since survived fires, earthquakes, mudslides, floods, riots, severe weather and two violent personal encounters. A retired police officer and certified as a Security Specialist and a Crime Prevention Practitioner, Curt has over two decades of public safety, security, preparedness and training experience. Curt has served as a firefighter, EMT and volunteer on Search and Rescue and Community Emergency Response teams and is an ALOA Certified Registered Locksmith and Safe Technician. Curt is a founding member and the organizer of Madison Preppers, a Meetup group with over 340 members. The group offers free monthly emergency preparedness meetings and low-cost “Survival Skills Saturday” training classes to help those interested grow and perfect their skills. In addition to Madison Preppers, Curt has presented to Wisconsin 9/12 Project, Prairie Patriots, Sheboygan Liberty Coalition, Oath Keepers and the Madison Women's Social Group. Curt won grand prize in the “What’s in Your Bug-Out Bag?” contest sponsored by the publishers of Living Ready Magazine and Gun Digest. He has been featured in Madison’s alternative weekly newspaper, Isthmus; the Janesville Gazette and the Sun Prairie Star; and interviewed by WBAY Green Bay, WKOW 27 Madison and WISC 3 Madison. Guardian Safety & Security Solutions, LLC Curt founded Guardian Safety & Security Solutions, LLC to train others in firearms, personal safety and self-defense, emergency preparedness and wilderness survival skills.
