PREFACE:

Preface

I am writing this preface in the fall of 1999. My editor just called and said we need this soon. So I'm sitting here thinking what I can say to you, my reader, that will motivate you to really get prepared for any disasters that might happen in your area.

It is a strange time to be writing about preparedness. Though the need for preparedness has never been more obviously clear, complacency seems to still rule the day. This year Hurricane Floyd left thousands homeless on the East Coast of the U.S., Taiwan was hit by a major earthquake, and India just got their worst flooding in 100 years. This year computer viruses have crippled companies, the government is warning about possible cyberterrorism, and Y2K is looming like a specter at the feast. The reasons to prepare seem compelling. But the stock market is booming, holidays are around the corner, and there are over 100 channels on TV. Preparedness just is not part of this society's mindset. It is just more difficult to think of hard times during good times.

So what can I say to you to convince you that you should spend the time, energy, and money to be fully prepared for any natural or man-made disaster that may occur? Only this: If a disaster befalls you and your family, preparedness will be one of the wisest, most mature decisions you ever made. If none befall you, it will still be.

—Robert Roskind
