10 Years of Total Prepare

Ever since Total Prepare was founded in 2012, we have been working hard to make Canadian communities safer. Preparedness has seen more public awareness in the past few years, and we couldn’t be happier that folks are paying attention! Plus, we’ve growing our team to better serve Canadians everywhere.

The Total Prepare team sure has grown over the last couple of years!

As we continue moving forward into uncharted waters, we’re thrilled to have you along for the ride!

In this special update, we have a letter from our Director to all of our awesome customers, an infographic timeline of Total Prepare milestones, and a special announcement—and it’s not an April Fool’s joke, we promise!

A Letter from our Director

Dear friends,

On behalf of the entire team at Total Prepare, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for allowing us to be part of your journey to preparedness over these past 10 years.

We strive to provide exceptional customer service, impart industry experience and knowledge and offer a good selection of the highest quality products on the market.  Each experience where we have fallen short is a learning experience that we use to improve.  Thank you for helping us in our corporate journey with suggestions, comments, feedback and reviews of our products and services.

The last couple of years have seen an explosion in the preparedness industry and it has presented numerous challenges.  The patience that has been shown from our suppliers right through to our customers during this tumultuous time has been truly humbling.  Knowing that we have all been in this together has made a rough ride much smoother.

We look forward to the next 10 years of servicing our clients to the best of our ability. It is the greatest compliment that a company can receive when a happy customer refers us to their friends, family and coworkers.  We take these referrals as a great responsibility and appreciate the faith and trust that is given to us.
