Description

The Disaster Preparedness Handbook will motivate you not only to become better prepared but will also show you how to prepare effectively. It offers well-researched advice that can be put into practice in the real world by normal families. This handbook is organized around the basic needs that must be met to survive. Each chapter contains an example scenario to help you determine your current level of readiness and contains a quick summary of points for easy reference.

This book contains crucial advice about staying alive, finding and storing food and water, creating shelter. It has advice about light, electrical power, heating and cooling, clean air, and practical instructions for safety when sleeping, communicating, along with medical and first aid advice.

Our world is not as safe as we would all like to believe?" Anything can happen. Disasters occur on an almost daily basis all around the globe. Major events in recent years have included the devastating tsunamis striking Japan and the coast of Sumatra, Hurricane Katrina, the rash of tornadoes that swept across the U.S. in 2011, the deadly earthquake in Haiti, and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and of course, most recently, Hurricane Sandy, from which many on the Eastern Seaboard are still recovering. We need to be prepared for fires that burn out of control and the spread of disease as well as terrorist strikes and pandemics. If any of these disasters were to occur, would you be ready?
