Hurricanes, landslides, floods, blizzards, tornadoes, lightning strikes, fires and heat waves often cause significant damage to the electrical, water and food sources that we rely on. The lack of post-disaster survival know-how costs hundreds of lives each year. This Duraguide® is intended to provide guidance on how to prepare for, cope with and survive natural disasters. It provides information preparing emergency survival kits, emergency sources of water, food and heat and specific instructions on how to stay safe during major disasters including cold snaps, heat waves, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, lightning storms, how to signal for help and basic first aid. This pocket-sized folding guide is waterproof and is an indispensable source of portable information that can save your life when disaster strikes. Made in the USA.
