"Survival Mom" covers the basics including food storage, water purification, financial and medical preparedness and communication during a crisis. It goes way beyond the basics, however, with the addition of charts, checklists and worksheets to help you stay organized.
A great way to get ready for that 6.5 to 7.5 quake we know will happen someday in San Francisco.
If you've been wanting to get your wife more involved in preparedness then get her this book! She might finally understand what you've been going on about!
If so, you will love this book, Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios
by Lisa Bedford.
Chapter One sets the tone for the entire book, "Prepare More, Panic Less." This is the message that comes through loud and clear. It matters not what the motivation is for our family preparations (whether natural disaster, job layoff, illness or something bigger), Lisa Bedford takes us step by step from awareness to action, starting with her own story in the introduction entitled "From Suburban Mom to Survival Mom."
Let's face it, the media is grabbing ahold of this "prepping" movement and is bringing it into the forefront and making it mainstream. People who never thought about storing food, water or extra blankets are now taking cues from tornado and hurricane survivors and packing 72 hour kits. With the reality shows such as "Doomsday Preppers" (no matter what your opinion of it, the show is topping the ratings and people are becoming aware of the need to prepare) and its copycats "Doomsday Bunkers" and those to follow, there are some Doom-and-Gloomers out there who are preaching panic and preying on those who are panicking.
Lisa Bedford's message says not so fast! On page 15 she recites "The #1 Rule of Preparedness... Do your best where you are with what you have.Read more ›
This would be great even for singles; For example, I could have really used the chapter on "Staying Cool When It's Hot" when I was a single girl living in Florida through the (way too many) hurricanes-and I thought I knew everything there was to know about staying cool when it's hot (I didn't but I do now!). It's filled with the best checklists and planning pages I've ever come across in an emergency preparedness book thus far, and I have read most of them out there. I do admire Aton Edwards, James Rawles, etc, and those guys are awesome, of course. This is "Best In Category" of family preparedness, as it covers the most practical things for families in their current (possibly suburban?)situation. Meaning, if you don't have a fortune to just move out west to the Redoubt and start homesteading (though that is probably a option to consider...Read more ›
