From the Author

Introduction
Every year countless natural and man-made disasters threaten our safety, potentially disrupting life as we know it. In the aftermath of any crisis, our access to food, water, medical attention, and vital public services can be quickly compromised. After just a few days without these life-sustaining resources, the world around us can become unrecognizable.

If tomorrow you woke up to a major disaster, would you know what to do? Would you have the necessary skills and supplies to survive? Would you even be able to keep yourself and your loved ones safe? Or, would you become just another name on along list of victims?
Surviving an urban disaster requires advance planning, thoughtful preparations, and diverse skills. But, while many of us agree that "being prepared" saves lives, few of us actually do anything about it. (It's estimated that less than 1 percent of the U.S. population is prepared for a disaster or public emergency.) For some, it's alack of time, money, and/or know-how. For others, life's concerns and hectic daily demands leave little room for much else. Regardless of the reasons, (excuses) it all leads to the same conclusion--at any given moment 99 percent of the population is exposed, vulnerable, and unprepared to face the harsh realities. This unreasonable complacency should be unacceptable to most rational people.

Why This Survival Guide?
The primary purpose of this survival guide is to help you get prepared quickly and easily. It summarizes the survival essentials in an abbreviated and user-friendly format-it's a quick-start survival guide for beginners and a handy reference for the more advanced. Getting prepared is actually pretty simple once you focus on the real-world survival basics and ignore the myths and extremes that are more entertainment than fact. The following pages are packed with practical information you need to know, without any sensationalism, fear mongering, or drama.

What to Expect:
Each section of this survival guide is organized into easy-to-follow segments:
  • What You Need to Know--The survival basics presented in a clear, concise, user-friendly format.
  • What You Need to Do--Simple step-by-step guidelines to help you get started with minimum effort, time, and expense.
  • What You Need to Get--Comprehensive lists of supplies to buy and store.
  • Quick Tips, Ideas and Information--Fast and easy access to the facts you need.
  • Pocket Reference/Survival at a Glance--For fast access to important information, measurements, and details.
You don't need to be a survival "expert" to be prepared. You can get started in as little as a few hours; you just need to focus on the things that really matter.

What it's Not
This survival guide is not meant to be your only source of information. It's a starting point to get you thinking and moving in the right direction. Preparedness is a lifestyle, and not something you can do over a long weekend and then forget about. You need to work at it, and even though skills are always better than "stuff," none of it will matter much if you never get started. Lastly, this is not about gloom and doom, or end-of-world scenarios--it's about taking control and making reasonable, rational, common sense decisions based on knowledge and logic, not fear.

Using Your Survival Guide--Getting Started
The information on these pages comes from real-life experience, extensive research, and trial and error-in other words, much of the heavy lifting has already been done for you. You don't need to read the entire guide to begin your preparations; you can work on it one section at a time in whatever order you like. But, no matter how you choose to proceed, the important thing is to get started.

Nothing any of us can do will ever prevent bad things from happening. The very best we can hope for is to have a fighting chance. When the moment arrives, you will either be prepared or you won't...the choice is yours. Being prepared will not only significantly increase your chances for survival, but will bring you peace of mind. Knowing this, what are you waiting for?

Stay Safe & Be Prepared
