What will you call someone who is prepared in advance for all the events/things?

I want a word which i can use in context where it's good to be prepared in advance.

Ex. If a person is well prepared for any event/meeting then it's a good thing. I want to use it as a adjective.

Are they prepared on purpose or incidentally? If it's on purpose, what is the reason? Is the preparedness a good thing, a morbid obsession, their hobby, their job? What part of speech are you looking for? What is the context? What dialect? What register? –  RegDwigнt Dec 11 '13 at 20:07

Ever-ready is an adjective meaning permanently accessible, available, or prepared.

It is probably more widely recognised as the trademark Eveready, associated with the international flashlight and battery manufacturer. Colloquially, one might refer to someone who is always prepared as Mr Eveready.

These are some words that can be used to convey preparedness. But I don't know of any particular word for a person like that.

ready, equipped, set, primed

Thanks that you tried to help. –  BSThakrar Dec 12 '13 at 5:15

I don't think there's a single, specific word for this; you'd have to use "He likes to be prepared" or something similar.

There is the non-standard prepper, but this is intrinsically linked to survivalism, and as such might not convey the (general) sense you are looking for, perhaps.
