The Preparedness Encyclopedia is a culmination of knowledge on almost all subjects related to survival and preparedness, put together in such a way that can be used easily on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone in a disaster. It's created so anyone can have access to life-saving knowledge in the event the internet goes down or the worst does happen such as world wars, pandemics, disasters or even supernatural events.
There are currently 2 different versions each update which are detailed below:
This is the version I edit primarily which works best on a computer or laptop due to the functions, frozen rows, groupings etc. Other versions contain less excel code functions to help it run easier on smaller and slower devices while keeping the content the same.
The portable or mobile version is the same as the desktop version but disables the groupings, unexpands the categories and removes the frozen columns to make reading much easier on smaller devices where some functions are unavailable. It can easily be opened on Excel for mobile or Google Sheets, but it opens much faster on Google Sheets and doesn't require a logon like Excel does. Unfortunately in-sheet hyperlinks don't currently work, and I recommend opening it in Google Sheets as it's much faster than the mobile Excel which sometimes crashes on load.

Due to work commitments I try to release a version every month packed with new information - i'm currently working on it at a rate of about 4 days a week so the amount of updates at the end of the month will significantly add to the information each release.
I would love shares and reviews if you have a YouTube channel, preparedness blog, or other website that you could share it around on. My only wish is that it saves lives in times of need and it's better to have it and not need it.
A 100% free and clean download - forever - But don't take my word for it.
Once downloaded, transfer it to your phone or mobile device immediately before you forget!
Due to the size restrictions of my hosting plan I will have to delete older versions of TPE as I bring out new ones.
Is it even worth releasing both types? Which one do you use? Let me know what you think!
How do I view the sheet?
After downloading the sheet and putting it on your Pc or Mobile Device, you need to open it with Microsoft Excel or another form of a spreadsheet viewer such as Google Sheets.
The sheet crashes when trying to load it in Excel
Try Google Sheets instead which should load it correctly - albeit without working in-sheet hyperlinks.
1,355.47 - This is the (last updated) number of hours i've spent hunched over the computer, inputting data and aligning cells to present you with the majestic sheet you have before you. If you like what i've done and want to help me with my mission please donate what you can to the cause.
For every dollar that's donated I will literally sit down and work on TPE more than I already am, for an additional minute per dollar! So all the money goes straight back into the sheet to become even more glorious.

I'm still deciding whether or not to do a patreon subscriber bonus where monthly donators can receive mid-month releases and special credits. If you would like it added let me know.
I would also appreciate any feedback you have on TPE which you can submit through the contact page form or via email. Let me know what you love or what parts should be forcibly thrown out the window, as well as anything that can be improved and whether categories should be split into separate pages instead of all on one sheet page.
