Odds are good that at some point in your life, you will be impacted by a storm, flood, tornado, hurricane, mudslide, blizzard, tsunami, power failure or worse. Preparing for such emergencies does not mean you are paranoid, it means you are a thoughtful adult. There are items you can collect for an emergency kit that will get you through a minor crisis or a major disaster. You won’t need every item in this book. The idea is to tailor the list to your needs and anticipated circumstances. Think of it as a bag full of cheap insurance that hopefully you will never need to use.
“In a disaster you want to stay warm, dry, have access to food and water and communications. This book will help you plan for those needs.” – Tim Murphy
