Armageddon Preppers' Fortress Moves Into Highest Alert Level For First Time

Armageddon Preppers' Fortress Moves Into Highest Alert Level For First Time

An Armageddon fortress in the US has moved into its highest alert level for the first time ever. You can take a look at the shelter here:


The compound in South Colorado - which is equipped with weaponry, guard towers and an abundance of supplies - has entered 'collapse mode', with the presidential election just around the corner and coronavirus chaos continuing to rumble on.

Fortitude Ranch CEO Drew Miller told local news station KDVR: "Yes, civil war seems unlikely. You don't estimate the probability of something like that, but is it inconceivable? Absolutely not. The election could be a real trigger."

Miller - a Harvard graduate, former military intelligence officer and evidently a massive believer in the saying 'failing to prepare is preparing to fail' - reckons the worst is still to come though.

He said: "That will be a pandemic nothing like Covid-19. It will shut everything down. It will kill hundreds of millions of people worldwide."

Happy weekend everyone, jeez.

But while this may seem like a bleak forecast, the idea is that Fortitude Ranch provides its members with peace of mind, should things turn even bleaker. Its slogan reads: 'Prepare for the Worst... Enjoy the Present'.

As member Kiki Bandilla explained: "It's kind of like an insurance policy. You never hope to have to use it, but it's certainly nice to have when you do and it's really just about peace of mind."

UFO Spotted In Hawaii Appears To Fall Into The Ocean

Members pay between $1,000 (£800) and $25,000 (£19,300) a year each to use the facility for up to 10 days - though presumably members will need to top up their membership if the world does go belly up, as I imagine Armageddon lasts more than 10 days.

Whatever the case, Fortitude Ranch is prepared for the worst.

In a statement shared with Reuters, Miller said: "This will be the first time we have opened for a collapse disaster, though it may end up not being so.

"We consider the risk of violence that could escalate in irrational, unpredictable ways into widespread loss of law and order is real."

Fortitude Ranch is in fact comprised of numerous ranches.

Miller set up the first camp in West Virginia in 2015 and has plans to open more across the US, though he won't say exactly where.

His business is basically like a Doomsday timeshare - a venture which sadly seems far more credible now than when he started it up five years ago.
