Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Be ready for disaster. That was my motto while I worked for Trader Joe's. My team designed and built a duplicate computer room intended to run the company in the event the machines in the corporate office were damaged or destroyed. We had a huge responsibility, and we took it very seriously.

During this time, we were struck with a couple of medium-sized earthquakes, as well as a fire that came close to the office. I found it interesting that few of my team members seemed to have any understanding of how to respond to these situations. 

As I thought over their actions, I realized that computers are worthless without employees to run them. A major flaw in our disaster plan was people were needed to run computers, and no plans had been made to ensure they were safe and able to work. Additionally, those that we needed to operate the business had little understanding of how to prepare for and survive a disaster or emergency.

In response, I decided to take a class called CERT-LA, which is a 7-day course sponsored by the Los Angeles Fire Department, to learn more about survival. CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team, and the purpose is to train people to be more effective during an emergency.

This class was one of the most fantastic educational experiences of my life. It was packed with information from the first day to the last, with a high degree of interaction, lectures, and practice sessions to put the knowledge to use. I took it twice to squeeze every last bit of data out of it that I could.

I was so excited when I finished. Since the class was (and still is) free, I decided I'd let everyone know. The knowledge and understanding of what to do in a disaster are potentially lifesaving, so I figured everyone would want to check it out.

I asked a few of my friends and co-workers a few questions about what they would do in a disaster. One answer from one of my teammates was typical.

"If there was an earthquake right now, what would you do?" I asked him.

"Get under the window," he answered without hesitation.

That shocked me. The right answer, of course, is to get under a heavy table or desk. Protect your body from falling objects. Getting under a window would be among the worst things you could possibly do since the glass would shatter over the top of you.

What would you do to protect yourself during an earthquake, hurricane, or other large-scale emergency in your area? Do you have a go-bag ready in case you need to evacuate? Do you keep a few days to a few weeks of food, water, and other supplies in your home?

Does all of that sound foreign to you?

I decided to write this book to pass along some of the knowledge I've learned over the years about disasters.
