Natural Disasters Happen... Are You Prepared?
Yes natural disasters happen... sometimes it seems like something happens every single day somewhere in the world. Some events are so severe that people are still recovering from them years later. Some last just a few days or weeks, then life goes back to what most of us consider normal.

Have you ever considered how you might take care of yourself or your loved ones if a disaster strikes in your area? Do you know whether you would have food to eat or even clean water to drink when it's desparately needed?

That's what this book is about. It's not a survival guide or a hardcore prepper manual. Instead it's designed to be an emergency preparedness guide for beginners. It explains common natural disasters, how to protect yourself and your loved ones when disaster strikes, and how to ensure you have adequate supplies until life gets back to normal. Some of what you'll learn in this handbook includes:

  Emergency Preparedness Basics
  Storing Food & Water for Emergencies
  Stocking up on Medical Supplies
  Consider your clothing, shelter, cooking and heating needs in an emergency
  Preparing to stay home or leave the area
  Making a Family Emergency Plan
  Specific Natural Disasters to Know About
  Longer Term Preparedness Planning
  Weather Disaster Glossary

This preparedness guide is approximately 100 pages long and includes photos, maps and glossary.
