Our History

At Instinct Ready, our story is rooted in a shared commitment to saving lives and empowering communities through preparedness. It all began with our founders, Jason and Wesley, whose paths converged through a common background as first responders and active Emergency Medical Technicians. With a collective experience of over 25 years, they intimately understand the critical importance of being ready for the unexpected.

As an EMT, Jason bore witness to the heartbreaking consequences of unpreparedness. It was the profound impact of these experiences that fueled his desire to make a difference. In 2017, Jason took the first step by founding Instinct Education, dedicated to imparting essential lifesaving skills such as CPR and First Aid to community members.

Wesley, drawing from his own experiences, recognized the pressing need for comprehensive disaster preparedness education. In 2015, he initiated Go-bag Wesley, an endeavor focused on teaching individuals and communities how to properly plan for disasters by assembling essential disaster kits. Seeing the knowledge gap within his own circle of friends and family, Wesley was determined to bridge it through education.

In late 2018, Jason and Wesley joined forces, fueled by a shared vision of creating a holistic disaster preparedness approach. Recognizing a genuine lack of preparedness at the community level, they envisioned a program that would not only educate but also provide practical solutions for individuals to safeguard themselves and their loved ones.

Officially incorporated in July 2019, Instinct Ready was born, and from that moment on, our mission has been unwavering—to empower communities with the knowledge and tools necessary to face emergencies head-on. We have dedicated ourselves to developing cutting-edge disaster preparedness educational programs and curating high-quality survival products.

The saga of Instinct Ready, however, has evolved beyond its founders to encompass a dynamic team of experts dedicated to fortifying communities and organizations against the unpredictable. With backgrounds spanning emergency management, military, law enforcement, and emergency medical services, our team brings a wealth of diverse expertise to the table.

Built upon the foundation of our founders' extensive experience as first responders, Instinct Ready has matured into a comprehensive force for preparedness. Now, not only do we continue to offer invaluable disaster preparedness education and survival products, but we've broadened our horizons.

Our team, composed of professionals from various fields, enables us to extend our services beyond individual preparedness. Instinct Ready now proudly provides professional emergency management services for organizations of all sizes. Leveraging our team's expertise, we offer comprehensive risk assessments, develop customized emergency plans, and conduct training and exercises tailored to the specific needs of each client.

The expansion of our services marks a pivotal chapter in our story. We recognize that the need for preparedness extends beyond the individual; it encompasses entire communities and organizations. Instinct Ready stands as a beacon of readiness, offering proactive solutions to mitigate risks and build resilience.

As we continue to grow and adapt, our commitment to empowering others remains steadfast. Instinct Ready is not merely a brand; it's a movement—a collective effort to instill confidence and capability in the face of emergencies. At Instinct Ready, we believe that everyone has the power to be their own first responder. Join us on this transformative journey as we equip individuals and communities with the instincts and readiness they need to thrive in the face of adversity.
