About the Author

Chris Kern was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1968 and was raised in New York (US) since he was 2 years old, and since then moved to Arizona in 2004. Having been brought up by two amazing parents that were teachers, with his father dedicating his life to social services, Chris was always on a quest to learn and understand how things worked, and how to help people.
In his teenage years, he was introduced to a life of adventure with rock climbing, water sports, mountain climbing, camping, boating and was an ocean lifeguard at Long Island's Jones Beach State Park for 5 years, recording over 25 saves.
After graduating the State University Of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo with a dual major in Finance and MIS in 1991, Chris embarked on a soul searching mission and moved to California after his last year as an ocean lifeguard. After this amazing experiment - he moved back to New York and pursued a career in corporate finance and investment banking and worked with firms such as Fisher Francis Trees & Watts, Lehman Brothers, Gunn Allen, and Maximum Ventures, where he assisted small to middle market companies with business strategy, M&A, and corporate finance engagements and facilitated over $650 million in financing and capital commitments.
Still an avid adventurer and water sports enthusiast, Chris is married to a beautiful wife, has two incredibly awesome kids, and currently works with Windstream Partners as a business adviser and corporate strategist for young emerging growth companies, while also expanding its publishing division by writing and producing interesting, insightful and helpful action oriented content. Having lived in many cities in the U.S. and traveling to many countries throughout Europe, Chris writes from personal experiences and extensive research in dealing with extreme heat, massive snowstorms, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and a multitude of first aid scenarios that required quick decisive action and being prepared.

Chris Kern writes from personal experiences and extensive research in dealing with extreme heat, massive snowstorms, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and a multitude of first aid scenarios that required quick decisive action and being prepared. And that is why this brief but thorough book is so dependable and useful. It makes a fine reference guide to keep in the home or anyplace you may spend time: just make sure you read it ahead of any possible occurrences so you can use it as a resource intelligently.

Kern opens his book with a look at eh essentials to survive disaster - food, water, shelter, fire and first aid - and asks that the reader survey the types of emergencies that could affect your location. He then probes into each for the fundamentals listed, sharing what to look for, how to be sure you are obtaining the correct supplies, how to store these in preparation for disaster, the ins and outs of water purification, securing a remote survival home (who would have considered this before Kern mentions it?) and considering natural shelters, and how to conserve and ignite fire and fuels, and the ins and outs of basic first aid - including what to look for in an injured person (shock, CPR, myocardial infarction).

He then moves to emergency preparedness - how to evaluate and assemble kits and materials, what tools and details are imperative, how to make a family emergency preparedness Kit, etc.

Seriously, I think about this stuff in the back of my mind...but never do anything about it because I feel I am too busy. But after reading your pamplet...I am not even close to being prepared in case of an emergency and need to take action now. I am motivated. A must read for anybody who has others counting on you for their safety and survival through an emergency.

Some of this stuff was more on a level for large groups. It did help figure out some plans for if our house caught on fire and other emergencies. Our kids now have a place to meet if we're separated.

This book provides good basic information on preparedness, planning, and implementation of emergency plans. Its a quick read and relatively high level. Though most of this is covered in other books in greater detail, this one is a good place to start reading about emergency planning and gives good food for thought. The lists and resources are also very helpful.
