Be prepared for first aid care and survival in any setting—at home, on the road, outdoors, while boating, hiking, or camping.

From performing CPR on an adult, child, or infant to dealing with bleeding and shock, cuts and broken bones, heart attacks, emergency childbirth, poisoning, drowning, scuba diving mishaps, wilderness survival, and natural disasters such as tornadoes, wildfires, floods, and earthquakes…this portable, waterproof guide helps you quickly find the information you need to develop a plan of action for assessing and treating all kinds of first aid and survival emergencies.

A special feature includes pet safety describing how to assemble a pet first aid kit, performing CPR on a dog and cat, and keeping pets safe during natural disasters.

Keep a copy in your home, car, boat, camper, or backpack and be “ready” when emergencies occur.

Here's what Kirkus Reviews had to say about First Aid, Survival, and CPR:

“Clear, succinct information, sensible design, and strongly organized information combine to make this field guide an invaluable aid to travelers and outdoor recreationists.”

“The well-chosen physical design also includes waterproof pages that are easy to write on with markers, which will allow users to make notes and carry the guide into a variety of different environments. Jones arranges the text into easily digestible chunks, using colors, subheads, graphics, photos, and text boxes to organize and enliven it.”

“A copy of Jones’ safety guide should have a place of honor in every vehicle and camping kit.”
