Overview


Are you prepared for a hurricane that turns your home into rubble? An earthquake that leaves you and your family without shelter, food, or water? A flood that makes your home unlivable? Most people don't want to think about those things until it's too late.

Ted Wright, who came of age in London during the Blitz of World War II, has extensive experience dealing with natural and man made disasters. He knows most problems occur after the disaster, not during it, and tells how to plan beforehand to enhance the chances of surviving the aftermath.

This book covers a variety of possible disasters and considers almost any place one might happen to be when it strikes. In all cases, advance planning combined with relatively inexpensive preparations will greatly enhance your chances of survival, whether you are caught at home (including mobile homes and condos), at work, at school, or on the road. It even has a special distaster plan that elementary, juniour high, or high schools should not be without.

With dozens of drawings and ideas, including food torpedoes, quake-resistant shelters, medicine chests, and water-storage trenches, this survival manual will be a life-saver for anyone caught in a major disaster.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A survivor of the London blitz, Wright now produces videos and lectures on earthquake survival. His theme: the quality of survival depends on the quality of preparation. His approach: encourage people to consider where they will be, plan what they will do in particular environments, and store up and/or carry what they will need when the ``Big E'' hits. His book contains practical information on selecting and storing supplies, and he offers advice on preparation and organization for schools, apartment dwellers, and the like. Wright briefly touches on other natural disasters, such as hurricanes and floods. The author writes in a chatty, homespun style that makes one wish for less verbiage and more practical ideas. Purchase where interest warrants.-- W.T. Johnston, formerly with Coastal Plain Regional Lib., Tifton, Ga.
