Description : This book will introduce you to a wealth of information on emergency preparation, and will provide your family or organization with important strategies, insights, tips, guidelines, and lists on how to prepare for a disaster. Survival planning is nothing more than realizing a disaster could happen that would put everyone in a survival situation and, with that in mind, taking steps to increase your chances of survival. Although helping others is certainly meaningful, worthwhile, and in some cases, necessary, the main emphasis of all household or organization team members should be to purchase, gather, and store resources and supplies for your own team members. Everyone must be encouraged and expected to provide for themselves. We have been encouraged through religious, education, scientific, and government media to prepare for these future events.

Description : The Best Guide For Preparing And Surviving A Disaster There are many kinds of disasters. Some are natural and some are results of human activities. Humans are always at risk whether they believe it or not. Coastal states fear tsunamis. Countries within the Ring of Fire fear the effects of volcanic eruptions. Deserts and landlocked areas are prone to sand storms while snow-covered countries are prone to blizzards. There are also hurricanes wreaking havoc in their wake all the world. Aside from these natural disasters, man-made disasters such as terrorism, outbreak of viruses, wars, and others pose risks to a lot of people. Through the course of history, you can see that disasters left humans helpless to the point that they are unable to tend to themselves and their families leaving many casualties behind.

Description : Based on a popular course for the FEMA Higher Education project, Preparedness and Response for Catastrophic Disasters provides important insight into plans to mitigate and respond to the devastation caused by large-scale catastrophic events. Hurricane Katrina provided clear evidence that these occurrences are both qualitatively and quantitatively different from other disasters. Recent tragedies, like the 2004 South Asia tsunami, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and resulting nuclear plant meltdown in Japan further illustrate that we are not prepared for such events. Written by top disaster scholars and practitioners, the book defines what constitutes a catastrophic event, outlining both the factors that can lead to catastrophes and the unique logistical, planning, and response challenges posed by them. Distinct from general disasters, these events are termed "catastrophic" due to the regional impact, impacts to logistics and infrastructure, the devastating effects on large-scale populations, and the ripple effects on regional and global economies. Preparedness and Response for Catastrophic Disasters examines why catastrophes must be approached differently. If governments, public administrators, and emergency management professionals are to succeed in protecting our populations, there must be consensus, decisiveness, and leadership in both the coordination and response. In addition, there must be a fundamental recognition that catastrophic events compromise the very infrastructure—public utilities, delivery of goods and service, schools, business functions, and government—that supports communities and upon which modern society is based. As such, the book explores how catastrophes can dramatically affect populations and addresses new, innovative, and fundamentally unique strategies communities can institute to better prepare populations for catastrophic events and their aftermath.

Description : Have you ever been in an earthquake or hurricane? Have you witnessed the horror of a raging forest fire or a house burning down? Have you felt the panic when you realized you were lost in the wilderness? Have you experienced a medical emergency in an area where no help was available? Sometimes you can avoid creating a disaster by preparing properly for a trip or hike. Other disasters occur with little or no warning. Hurricanes, for example, can be predicted, but sometimes they change course or grow in intensity beyond what was expected. Even though a disaster can strike anytime without warning, you can be prepared. You can maintain a good supply of water, food, and other supplies, and get some training from your local CERT group. Your road to disaster preparedness begins with knowledge. Virtually everyone has the Internet at their fingertips these days, and you can use tools such as search engines and mapping software to learn more about the area in which you live. This book will give you the knowledge and tools you need to help weather any disaster likely to strike in your area. Be prepared: read this book and change your habits.
