Just in case disaster strikes, you need a plan to ensure your family's safety and comfort in all eventualities. What would you do if the power went out for several days in a row? Or if your family had to quickly evacuate the area? Kathy Harrison shows you how to set up a simple home system--covering food storage, alternative heating sources, toiletries and clothing, pet supplies, emergency communication plans, and more--that will allow your household to survive comfortably for several days, or longer, with no outside services at all. Harrison also explains how to create a detailed evacuation plan--where to go, how to meet up with other family members, what to pack, and how to protect what you leave behind.

Disaster preparedness book. Covers everything from loss of power to terrorism. It's pretty straight forward book that covers just about everything you'll need to know and do to prepare yourself and your family from unexpected disasters.

A great book to get one thinking about preparedness. Easy to read layout and casual writing style makes it so you can imagine how it applies to your own life. Doesn't give super detailed explanations for everything, more of a book to get you thinking.
