How the App Works

Para™ is an app that simplifies preparedness for you, your family, and the community. The app is designed for everyone, from those just getting started with preparedness to those with decades of experience. Take a quick tour and get a glimpse of how Para™ works.

Add Items to Your Inventory

Knowing what you have is your first step to becoming prepared

 

Have you ever gotten out the door, just to realize that your bag isn’t properly stocked with what you need? This is why having a managed inventory is so amazing! Knowing what items and gear you have and documenting it is the first step to preparedness.

Let’s walk you through a bit of the inventory features so you can get a feel for what Para™ can do for you.

ADD LOCATIONS AND CONTAINERS

Easily group your items and gear by location, then simply add whatever containers you have. Add your house, then add your garage, totes, and backpacks.

ADD ITEMS AND GEAR

Adding items in Para™ is much more fun than a written down paper of chicken-scratch words. As you add items, you can:

  • Scan barcodes
  • Take your own pictures
  • Add usage notes
  • Add the estimated cost
  • Add quantity
  • Add expiration dates

Prepare Better with Lists

Learn the power of preparing with bundled items, products, and activities in one

 

We wanted to take a whole new approach to preparing. We wanted to make it easy for anyone to get started, and having the hurtle of learning how to prepare from the ground up is hard and time consuming. So, we created the concept of a preparation list or “prep-list” for short. Think of it as a little prep-bundle. These lists are packaged with what you need to properly prepare for that situation, like items, recommended products, and even informative activities. Our prep-lists are key to what makes Para™ the trusted tool of choice for getting prepared.

Let’s see how preparation lists work and how they help you stay prepared without always having to think about preparedness.

VISIT THE COMMUNITY AND FIND A LIST

The community section is the gateway to over a hundred preparation lists and counting. Check out what lists are available now. These lists range from our featured 72-Hour Preparedness List, our continually growing food storage lists from Food Storage Made Easy, in addition to many more.

PURCHASE NEEDED ITEMS

Para™ has made it easy to add items into the app. If the items has a barcode, simply scan. Add any additional information, like expiration date, usage notes, and even take your own picture.

LEARN WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT WITH ACTIVITIES

Getting prepared is NOT the act of “buying tons of items and gear, throwing them in a closet or basement, then trying to use them only when you need it.” Don’t be this this person. Instead, Para™ prep-lists include activities to help you know how to use your gear, or tasks to do to make sure you are ready for the given situation. Activities can be marked “completed” in the app, and activities that recur will prompt you when you need to do it again. Now doesn’t that simplify preparing??!
