In this episode, we sit down with Justin Carroll of Prepper Opsec. We’re going to deep dive on your physical security so you can keep yourself and family safe.
Physical security includes locks, safes, doors, and anything that denies access to an area or items. People tend to see these as impenetrable force shields.
