Bird Flu What to Do: Prepare to Survive

Bird Flu What to Do: Prepare to Survive Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bird Flu What to Do: Prepare to Survive is a concise, yet comprehensive book that outlines disaster preparation - with a particular focus on what to do if there is an influenza pandemic - for ordinary citizens, covering food/water storage, special needs of those unable to care for themselves, neighborhood and community organization, home health care under dire circumstance, quarantine preparation, and safety/security issues at home. The book both consolidates resources available to the public and goes beyond what is accessible to the ordinary citizen with contributions from experts in diverse fields, and an extended appendix covering what to get, where to get it and additional information that could prove lifesaving.
The book is not fear based, but attempts to normalize disaster preparation, posing it as one the most socially responsible thing we can "just do." This book fills the gap between what public health can do and what we ordinary citizens need to do. Communities, neighborhoods, and families that have made the effort to prepare to survive natural disasters will be more resilient if and when a natural disaster occurs.

Synopsis:

This critical book responds to the current climate of fear surrounding the possible bird flu pandemic by presenting accessible and practical ways to prepare for it responsibly.

Synopsis:

The imminent threat of an avian flu pandemic saturates the media. Most medical experts and top government officials agree that it is not a matter of if, but when the health crisis will occur. Verona Font?'s critical book, Bird Flu What to Do, responds to the current climate of fear surrounding the bird flu with a radically different approach. Dr. Font?'s underlying premise is that disaster planning is the most pragmatic, socially responsible thing we can do. Through relevant information and practical actions, individuals and neighborhoods are encouraged to empower themselves to prepare to survive in the event of any natural disaster?with information particularly important for an avian pandemic. After experiencing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the tsunami in Thailand in 2004, the American public and international community eagerly await the tools and assurance that this well-written, accessible, and comprehensive book provides.
