Excellent short book on how to put together an effective Bug-out bag in case one needs to evacuate an area or home subject to a major disaster or calamity--like a raging forest fire, hurricane, tornado or earthquake! Many reminders on what to include for maximum survival and what to avoid. A must read in today's fast changing and unpredictable world.
The author covers the basics of emergency preparedness, focused on what you should have pre-packed and ready to take with you and your family in case of disaster or evacuation. Clearly laid out, logically organized and covering all the main elements of what you may need in various situations.
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. My review copy was not formatted for the iPhone, requiring enlarging each page.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review - I found this book very helpful with planning for an emergency. As a single mother of two, I worry about how my children and I will manage if a major disaster hit. Living in California earthquakes are common and we are due for a large one, so this book was exactly what I needed to start putting together a plan that will work for us. There were many great tips about how to pack a survival bag that I had not considered and the author's first person experience makes me feel more confidant with his suggestions. I will be making a Bug Out Bag tonight for all three of us and will be setting reminders on my computer every 3 months to check the batteries, food bars and other items that could go bad so we are not caught off guard. Great, quick read with an easy flow. I read it on a lunch break at work and now suggest it to all my friends and family. Well worth the read!
