She discusses things like planning ahead. If there's a flood and you plan to stay with the house then have an ax in the attic just in case the water gets that high. She discusses a method of having family check in with a designated person outside of the disaster zone. She describes housing problems, communications issues, pets, transportation, schools, news reporting and more.
What I took away from this book is to not be complacent. If an emergency is declared - leave. Have a plan so your family knows where to gather. Plan on communications being impaired so maybe have a set a walkie-takies. If you have a garage maybe store extra gas in secure cans in case you have to evacuate. Get a manual crank radio (yes they exist.) Wherever you're at this book will force you to think through whether you can evacuate efficiently. If you can't you need to put a plan together.
This book also includes what to have on hand in order to be prepared, and what to do during and after a disaster. I found the book both interesting and extremely valuable. Hopefully I will never need to use the knowledge that I gained through reading this book, but I'm glad that I now do have the knowledge.
