Overview

The world is changing, and your life has changed, wherever you live, and whether you approve or not. You are being affected. Your normal routines can now be interrupted at any time. There are no guarantees of stability or safety, so you need to be prepared, for your sake and for your loved ones. There are new threats and new responses. We are no longer insulated from the chaos of the world. These new possibilities must be understood and preparations made. There is hope. This easy-to-use and authoritative reference has been updated with information on climate change and the Fukushima disaster. It tells you what to do, when, and how. What are the four basic emergency situations you may find yourself in today? What are the seven essential life-support components that you must consider? What should you carry with you whenever you go out? What should you have in your grab-and-go survival pack and where should you keep it?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Our lives today seem to have two channels: one, the steady, busy routines of our daily activities; the other, the not-always-easily suppressed fear that we will become the victims of catastrophes. Whether our personal nightmare is earthquake, flood, climate change, or act of terrorism, we labor under anxieties that most of us rarely express. With its specific instructions, this carefully planned guide to planning survival techniques holds the power to calm us in our frightening new world.
