Youngest son and FDIL (favorite daughter in law) are stationed at Dugway Proving Grounds and live in Dugway, Utah with their five children. Something of the ultimate gated community with armed guards at the only entrance. The place is remote.
Being in the military, and moving often, it is difficult for them to do traditional prepping though they stockpile food and essentials.
There is an ongoing fire, the Patch Springs fire that has wiped out power lines into Dugway leaving the housing area without power, perhaps for days. In response, son and FDIL tapped into their savings, went to the nearest large town, and bought a generator and necessary accessories. They have power to their essential appliances.
