In an easily readable format, It's a Disaster! provides concise, bulleted information for the layperson on how to prepare for and deal with a variety of disaster scenarios. Bill and Janet Liebsch recognize that effectively preparing for emergencies must occur not only on national or regional levels, but on the level of individual households as well.
Upheaval can take many forms, from natural disasters like floods and earthquakes to manmade catastrophes like the release of hazardous materials, terrorist acts, or nuclear power plant emergencies. It s a Disaster! runs the gamut of what to expect during the entire disaster lifecycle. How can your family mitigate the damages and losses from events involving wind, floods, earthquakes, fires, winter storms, or lightning? How can you protect your family and assets during a disaster? And what about the inevitable aftermath handling emotions, returning to a damaged house, getting government aid, and helping others?
Also included are extensive information and tips on basic first aid for injuries and illnesses, such as bites, breathing problems, broken bones, bleeding, burns, choking, drowning, cold and heat-related illnesses, head and neck injuries, poisoning, shock, and stroke. To aid readers in finding outside resources, national, state, and local FEMA and emergency management offices are listed. --Contingency Planning & Managements BCP Bookshelf
This is the best and most comprehensive book I have seen covering both first aid and disaster preparedness for individuals and families. Businesses and organizations can use this book to help citizens prepare for emergencies and disasters at the workplace and at home. --Peter Baker, American Red Cross
Having served 37 years as a structural firefighter and 20 years as a Disaster Services Coordinator and primary responder on hazardous materials incidents in Latah County, Idaho, I am quite familiar with those functions necessary to protect life, property and the environment. To that end, It's a Disaster! ... and what are YOU gonna do about it?, by Bill and Janet Liebsch, is the best single source of guidance I have encountered. Bill and Janet have compiled factual information from a variety of reliable and trusted sources in federal, state and local governments; from the private sector (such as the Red Cross); from industry and from a wide variety of emergency management professionals who constantly review and help edit the manual. --Gary O'Keefe, Retired Firefighter & Disaster Services Coordinator, MVFD & Latah County, ID

Let's face it, your smart phone and computers will not work when needed most; so don't plan on them being available. Only you are responsible for you; none of us pay for our very own fireman, policeman, or lifeguard. Besides, they have their own families to worry about first.
Think caring for yourself for at least a week.
