Disaster Preparedness: Taking Matters Into a Welder’s Hands

We all love a good doomsday flick, but some of us view Armageddon, apocalypse, or whatever you want to call it as a real possibility (the TV show Doomsday Prepper on National Geographic is an example of what I mean). Whether or not you believe in the possibility of end-times, welders can benefit from getting into the prepping game themselves. Check out how Colorado welder Riley Cook made preparedness his business:

At Cooks Welding in Silverthorne, Riley Cook is hoping there's truth in the saying, "Build it and they will come."

"More and more people are waking up for ways to prepare themselves for any type of disaster, man-made or natural," Cook said.

His family-run welding company started making disaster shelters during the recession as a way to boost business in a market they felt was ready to expand.
