Overview


Learn how you can protect yourself from potential acts of terrorism and how to react in the instance a terrorist situation should occur. Easy to read, A Citizen's Guide to Terrorism Preparedness provides readers with facts, figures, and practical guidelines to follow as they go about their daily lives. No special military equipment or extreme survivalist tactics are needed. Instead, this handbook is designed specifically for average citizens who want to take all of the steps they can to prepare themselves should a terrorist act like one they've seen on TV or read about in a newspaper happen in their state, city, or neighborhood. Since knowledge is power, the authors also hope this book will help everyone who uses it recapture the peace of mind they enjoyed prior to September 11, 2001.
