Summary
"Living in a world where most anything can happen at any time means that no one is ever completely safe. With climate change bringing more and more megastorms, longer and deeper droughts, and a rising sea level, and with other dangers out there from crime and terrorism to dangerous wildlife encounters and accidents at home and on the road, expecting the unexpected can reduce--and possibly eliminate--the damage and loss to you and your loved ones. It pays to be prepared! When catastrophe strikes, no matter how big or small, being ready and knowing how to respond can be the difference between the loss of life and survival. [This book] shows how to prepare for and respond to any crisis, man-made or natural, wherever it might occur and however small or large it might be. Using what has been learned from previous disasters, this indispensable book illustrates how others survived past crises and managed to rebuild their lives. Covering the basic needs from food, water, and first aid to shelter, security, and self-defense, this informative guide walks readers through the steps it takes to create their own personal emergency action plan. It provides a catalog of the skills, tools, and items needed to endure and overcome a variety of situations and circumstances. Plus, it provides insights into how to react and respond when disaster does strike. Critical decisions faced during an emergency are considered: whether to stay or to go, where to go, how to stay informed, and more. Truly essential, this comprehensive guide takes a clear-eyed look at what to do should the worst happen. It is essential reading during these volatile times."--Back cover
