Oath Keepers’ Community Preparedness Team (CPT)

Oath Keepers’ Community Preparedness Team (CPT) Project is working to make America strong again, from the bottom up, by having well trained, experienced military, police, and first responder veterans come together and lead the way in preparing their communities for any disaster, either natural or man-made.

Our teams can provide direct assistance to a community (as we did by guarding shops against arsonists in Ferguson, Missouri during the riots there), but they are first and foremost training cadre to train other groups and individuals in the critical skills they will need in any disaster:


Every American should be trained to at least “Combat Lifesaver” level to provide immediate care for victims of severe trauma, whether it be a car accident, a gunshot wound, a chainsaw accident, etc. to save lives. Our second level is EMT, and third level is medic/paramedic.


As the military saying goes, “if you ain’t got commo, you ain’t got jack.” Communications are critical. Every American needs to have at least a hand-held HAM radio and the knowledge to use it for local communications. We then work to get you up to General Class level to talk to your whole state or the nation.


Most American gun owners have little or no training in how to fight together, as a team. Whether it is a husband and wife, father and son, or neighbors, you need to know how to move, shoot, and communicate as a team. Bad guys, like MS-13 or ISIS, attack in teams. You need to know how to fight back as a team and how to form up a neighborhood watch to protect yourselves and each other. Security is everyone’s responsibility, and our infantry and police veterans will teach you how.


In any emergency, whether it be during an ice storm, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, or aftermath of riots and social breakdown, you need shelter, clean water, alternative power, transportation and delivery of supplies, and the ability to deal with fire dangers and hazardous materials.


Americans are told by FEMA to be able to self-rescue and self-supply for at least 72 hours, but clearly emergencies can last much longer. You need to be able to take care of yourselves and each other for extended periods, including effective food storage. We will show you how.

Even if you are not a veteran, you are welcome to join us and get trained, and then help train others. We find that nearly everyone has some skill or life experience that is useful to the community, and we will help you pick a training track to focus on, and get trained up by more experienced team member mentors. And even if you have physical limitations that would prevent you from being on a field team, you can still help with support, security as a “home guard,” and logistics.

And if you already have an existing group, such as a neighborhood watch, church group, veterans group, political or social group, we would be happy to train your group in all of the above skills.

We believe that strong neighborhood watches (with teeth) are the most critical first steps toward a strong America, working from the bottom up to provide local security while we also strengthen what is already there (search and rescue, volunteer fire, volunteer emergency medical, CERT teams, reserve deputy and police auxiliary, etc.). We encourage the formation of Sheriff Posses behind constitutional sheriffs.

NOTE: The ultimate goal is a true revitalization of the “well regulated militia” of the several states, made up of the people themselves, well organized, trained, and equipped, and with official sanction by the people’s elected representatives at least at the town or county level and ultimately at the state level, as advocated by Dr. Edwin Vieira in his book, Constitutional Homeland Security. We don’t believe it is proper to apply the title “militia” to anything that doesn’t have that official sanction and that is not made up of a substantial number of the people in a community.
