Overview

We live in very uncertain times. One only needs to turn their thoughts to 9-11 to witness just how uncertain the world has become. Not only are we facing disaster on a global level, individually thousands of us experience our own forms of disaster every day. Fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and accidents remind us just how vulnerable we really are. What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Are you prepared to administer first aid? Do you have sufficient food, water and clothing to survive for several days if necessary? What is your Disaster Preparedness Plan? Do you even have one? Answers to these questions and much more are outlined for you in precise detail in the Disaster Preparedness Kit. The information contained in this booklet can be life saving. Spread it far and wide...
