Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Be prepared for any eventuality! What should you do if stuck in a blizzard? What's the best way to react during an earthquake? What strategies will help you to survive in a life or death situation? How should you signal for help, and what do you need in your supplies? How do you create an emergency plan for you and your family? The Collins Gem Disaster Survival Guide provides advice on what to do in the event of a range of natural, civil, and terrorist disasters. This book not only covers personal safety, but also explores how the safety of children, seniors, and the disabled can best be achieved in differing, and difficult circumstances. As well as exploring physical problems, the book also discusses the emotional reactions to a disaster, and how best to cope—including fear management techniques, and how to treat someone suffering from shock. Natural disasters such as hurricanes, volanoes, avalanches, and epidemics are featured, as well as civil and terrorist disasters including fire, chemical incidents, and water shortage. This gives you practical tips and advice to keep you prepared as far as possible to help yourself and your loved ones.
