Publisher Comments:

WARNING SIRENS ARE BLARING. YOU HAVE 15 MINUTES TO EVACUATE. WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Cataclysmic events strike sleepy towns and major cities every year. Residents face escaping quickly or perishing in rising waters, raging fires or other life-threatening conditions. By the time the evacuation starts, it's already too late. Being prepared makes the difference between survival and disaster. Guiding you step by step, Bug Out shows you how to be ready at a second's notice.

• Create an escape plan for where to go and how to get there.

• Pack the perfect bug-out bag for the first 72 hours.

• Find food, water and other necessities outside of civilization.

Floods. Hurricanes. Pandemics. Earthquakes.

Blizzards. Tsunamis. Wildfires. Riots.

Bug Out includes detailed information on the best escape locations everywhere in the U.S.:

• The Pacific Coast

• The Rocky Mountains

• The Desert Southwest

• The Heartland

• The Lakes and Big Woods of the North

• The Gulf Coast

• The Appalachians

• The Atlantic Coast

Synopsis:

Escaping a doomed city during the first 72 hours of a crisis can make the difference between life and death. The tragic lesson of Hurricane Katrina applies to any large-scale crisis: Don't hope to wait it out or expect the government to bail you out — just get out. Since natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and civil unrest may be unavoidable, Bug Out includes all the information needed to guarantee an orderly and safe escape with nothing forgotten or left behind, providing readers with a comprehensive advance plan for fleeing their home in 15 minutes or less. From preparing supplies for three days of wilderness living to mapping out an escape route to a remote location, this book turns the ordinary urban-dwelling American into a savvy survivalist. Bug Out also includes vital strategies for saving pets and household valuables as well as advice on overcoming pitfalls (like road or gas station closures) that could delay or even prevent one's escape.
