Basic Survival: A Beginners Guide
Getting prepared for an emergency is confusing. It can get overwhelming. If you're like most new "preppers" out there, you've probably found yourself spending too much time and money looking at what you're afraid or spending money to get comforting thoughts.
You might have even opened up your wallet and thrown money at the problem or went overboard with time.
There is a lot of information available on disaster preparedness as people become more aware of the conflicts and natural disasters present in our world. Informational overload can cause paralysis by over analysis, or a "why bother, we are just going to die anyway" Mentality. This does not have to happen to you.
You can learn simple things to help you become better prepared for disasters of all kinds. This book brings together state of the art emergency management concepts with tried and true prepper techniques.
This book combines the author's 12 years working in state level disaster preparedness and response and is the basis of his actions used in 20 over Presidential declared natural disasters. As well as his experiences from a lifetime of personal preparedness activities. It can help you and you family become ready to deal with whatever life throws at you.
Don't let the name fool you, this is not a wilderness survival handbook - it is a surviving emergencies handbook. I hope that my editor will let me change the name during the next reprint so that people have a better idea what this book is actually about. (Which is why you should buy it now - so you can have a collector's item.)
I believe in an all hazards approach to survival. If you knew what kind of disaster would kill you a smart thing to do would just be to avoid that type of disaster. Since no one knows what might happen to them, a smart person prepares to deal with all kinds of issues.
I take academic theory learned during my education as an Emergency Management Planner and add common sense skills learned by life as a prepper to bring you this book.
