Join Donna Miller, Host of Your Preparation Station as she visits with Charles Daugherty of Patriot Crime Defense. Charles has some first-hand experience with fortifying his home (and the homes of other people) to protect from the number one crime in America: Home Invasion. Charles shares his journey, his Faith and some great tips to help keep your home safe & secure.
A personal introduction from Charles:
“My goal in life is very simple; I want to honor God in my work, take care of my family, and help others succeed!
I am currently the owner of Patriot Crime Defense which is the DBA name for Red Fern Dynamics. Patriot Crime Defense specializes in home security from a prevention stand point. We have designed and have manufactured The Patriot Door Kit, which when installed will prevent your doors from being kicked in. This type of breach is the most common way a criminal gains access to your home. My former business partner and lifelong friend and I started working on this particular problem in 2009 right after we won the Annual Soin Award for Industrial Automation. We have designed and invented multiple tools and machines through the years, even before graduating from High School. So when we were confronted with this problem and challenge, we kicked it into gear (pun intended.) The end result 6 months later was the Patriot Door Kit formerly known as the Door Sentinel along with additional patents pending.
In addition to my engineering and design background, I am also an avid outdoorsman. I am a certified NRA Rifle and Pistol Instructor as well as a Range Safety Officer. I teach survival skills, I am a 4-H Forestry Coach, permaculture designer, BSA Scout Master, Civil Air Patrol Ground Team Leader, Sartech II Certified and even a Certified EMR. I believe that preparation, on all fronts, is not only prudent but providential.”
Donna Miller, first and foremost, is a teacher, author, sought-after speaker and trainer in the preparedness industry. She has been a both guest and host on Internet and broadcast radio talk shows, television interviews, and expositions. She enjoys teaching online and local preparedness classes and ladies’ retreats for people to learn more than just head-knowledge of preparedness skills.
Under the leadership of her husband Joseph, Donna and her family have been actively preparing for more 25 years. It was only a few short years ago that the discussions about “preparation” seemed far-fetched and radical. Today, it has become a mainstream topic all over the world––and people are now highly active toward learning how to be more prepared.
The Millers have been blessed to meet many people along the preparedness journey who inspire and encourage them. This journey looks different for each family and they’ve enjoyed learning and growing along the way by having first-hand experience with building and living out of a year’s food supply, bartering and teaching ourselves ‘old skills’ to enrich their lives. Donna is happily married and has three adult children, and a daughter in-law. She and her husband Joseph are the founders of Millers Grain House, Your Preparation Station and are on th e board of PREPARE Magazine.

The Miller family has been active in preparing for many years, and they feel they have been blessed to meet many people along the preparedness journey who inspire and encourage them. They’ve seen YPS grow into a vibrant community of friends who share the interest of preparing and frugal living. YPS helped the Miller family succeed in their effort to find others to join with them in their journey and are grateful for the opportunity to share ideas, tips, skills, and lots of money-saving suggestions with their new-found friends. On YPS , the Millers share tips and resources on self-reliant living, gardening, farming, solar energy, livestock, homesteading, milling and baking with whole grains, and to living more frugally and saving money on grocery bills.

YPS continues to expand its preparedness products and informational services. Donna and Joseph look forward to a very busy and successful future as they expand their combined efforts to share their passion, creativity, and expertise in preparedness, prepping, and family survival issues.
The Millers are always looking for others to join with them in their journey and are grateful for the opportunity to share ideas, tips, skills, and lots of money-saving suggestions. Their desire is to peacefully build an encouraged and empowered, prepared and self-reliance community in the midst of chaotic times.
