Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, 3rd Edition
Right out of the gate let me tell you what the book is NOT. It is not a book about fighting off hordes of flesh-eating zombies, should they ever rise from the grave. Nor will it describe how to survive a shipwreck by feasting on coconuts and roasted iguana. Finally, it is not intended to help you survive our planet being sucked into the cosmic fireball affectionately known as our Sun. If you wish to prepare for those types of events, I respectfully suggest that you continue your search for a more suitable text.
This book IS designed to help your family prepare for more commonplace, yet still equally deadly disasters. The list is long and varied, and includes hurricanes, tornados, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, pandemics, financial collapse, floods, widespread blackouts, food shortages, airborne contamination, radiation exposure, and much more.
The 440-page, 8″ x 10″handbook is clear and easy to read with more than one hundred photos, illustrations, and worksheets. What makes this book different is that it focuses on practical steps that you and your family can take to become better prepared. At the end of your efforts, you will be rewarded with knowing that your family is far better prepared to handle real world challenges.
