Disasters often strike without warning and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. Yet armed with the right tools and information, survivors can fend for themselves and get through even the toughest circumstances. Matthew Stein's When Disaster Strikes provides a thorough, practical guide for how to prepare for and react in many of life's most unpredictable scenarios. In this disaster-preparedness manual, he outlines the materials you'll need-from food and water, to shelter and energy, to first-aid and survival skills-to help you safely live through the worst. When Disaster Strikes covers how to find and store food, water, and clothing, as well as the basics of installing back-up power and lights. You'll learn how to gather and sterilize water, build a fire, treat injuries in an emergency, and use alternative medical sources when conventional ones are unavailable. Stein instructs you on the smartest responses to natural disasters-such as fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and floods-how to keep warm during winter storms, even how to protect yourself from attack or other dangerous situations. With this comprehensive guide in hand, you can be sure to respond quickly, correctly, and confidently when a crisis threatens.

Whether you're hit by a natural disaster or power outage, you can expect this problem: your cell phones, landline phones and Internet eventually stop working. What will you do? How will you communicate with your family or friends? While you may have set aside food and water for an emergency, what about a pair of radios with batteries? Have you considered long-range options? Do you know what your best options are? This book will walk you through modern communications technologies, pros and cons of each, and recommendations to implement a realistic backup communications system. Options reviewed include: - AM/FM, NOAA, FRS/GMRS and Other Radios - eXRS and Other Unusual Gear - Satellite Phones and Personal Locator Beacons - Amateur Radio - the King of Emergency Communications Using the clear and simple recommendations in this book, you'll be able to reliably communicate with others in your region, without a cell phone, landline service, Internet, or need for grid power. When others can only wonder if their loved ones are safe, you will be able to talk with yours! "One area often overlooked in disaster preparedness is the need for communication. Whether it is to let distant loved ones know that all is well, signal for help from a stranded vehicle, or call for emergency medical assistance, the ability to reach out when conventional services have failed is crucial. This book fills an important gap and should be part of everyone's library." -Arthur Bradley, author of Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family For additional emergency communications information, plan templates and other free resources, visit www.EmergencyCommunicationsBlog.com.
