Climate scientists are suggesting that extreme weather like severe hurricanes and droughts are now the new normal for the United States (Huffington Post). Nine out of 10 Americans expect a world disaster to occur in their lifetime, yet 56 percent say they aren’t prepared (National Geographic Channel).
I find disaster statistics something to pay attention to – we can change this problem. This book is well laid out, with a spiral binding, easy to update, with guides and spaces to put all your important information in one place. Do this for your family. Disasters do happen – look at Oklahoma and Colorado and so much flooding and fires. Let’s take care of ourselves.
My Son is a Firefighter, My Daughter lives in FL. Even for me, living in California helps you understand what CAN happen, but we can survive if we are prepared. Sometimes its simple stuff, sometimes it is a Plan/practice. I feel strongly about preparedness. I have received CERT Community Emergency Response Training for San Mateo County. This is serious stuff, and it can save your life. — the editor
The increase in earthquakes, terrible storms, and political unrest in recent years has forced everyone to reevaluate their preparedness and place urgency on being ready for future disasters. The Disaster Prepper’s Organizer: All the Grab-and-Go Survival Information You Need by Walter Jacob Mullin (F+W/Adams Media, October 2013) is the only organizer that safely secures critical personal information during disasters.
While having a bug-out bag and stocking up on the essentials is a great way to prepare, readers will also need an all-in-one place to store the information that will help them survive a crisis.
With The Disaster Prepper’s Organizer, you can ease your mind knowing that you’ve taken the necessary steps to prepare your family for any emergency that may come your way.
From financial accounts and insurance policies to their family’s blood types and medical history, The Disaster Prepper’s Organizer will give readers plenty of space to record the details that matter most in their day-to-day lives.
Complete with a pocket for important documents, and tips for living off the grid, this book will reassure them that they truly have all the information they need:
- First aid
- Evacuation Plans
- Supply lists
- Emergency contacts
Walter Jacob Mullin (West Linn, OR) lives in the Pacific Northwest with his family. He never leaves home without an LED flashlight. Which is a good idea, along with putting an old pair of tennis shoes in your car trunk!! Be Prepared. Just like the Boy Scouts of America!
