Always Be Prepared

What if your life was disrupted by a natural disaster, food or water supply contamination, or any other type of emergency? Do you have the essentials for you and your family? Do you have a plan in the event that your power, telephone, water and food supply are cut off for an extended amount of time? What if there were no medical or pharmaceutical services available for days, weeks, or months? How prepared are you?

With this guide by your side, you and your family will learn how to plan, purchase, and store a three-month supply of all the necessities—food, water, fuel, first-aid supplies, clothing, bedding, and more—simply and economically. In other words, this book may be a lifesaver.

Inside you'll find 10 steps to an affordable food storage program plus how to:

•Prepare a home "grocery store" and "pharmacy"

•Use what you store and store what you use

•Store water safely and provide for sanitation needs

•Create a first-aid kit, car kit, and 72-hour emergency kit for the whole family

•And many more invaluable hints and tips

"This clear, concise, step-by-step program is not only affordable and doable, it's essential in these uncertain times. Now, everyone from apartment dwellers to basement owners can store a three-month supply of the essentials, including peace of mind!" — Joni Hilton, author of Once-a-Week Cooking Plan and Cooking Secrets My Mother Never Taught Me

Synopsis:

This important reference shows how to simply and economically build and store a three-month supply of food, water, power, fuel, first-aid supplies, clothing, and bedding. Packed with photos, illustrations, and charts, this book makes emergency preparedness doable for any family.

A good starter book to get ready for emergency preparedness. With the mindset of many of the people of the world today, the crazy weather patterns, earthquakes, etc., it is best to be prepared for any emergency that might happen. I try not to be an alarmist, but each individual must realize you cannot rely on the government to ride to your rescue in the event of a widespread disaster. You must be able to take care of yourself - at least for a while and maybe even for months. Get yourself prepared now and this book can help you get started.

I really like what this book has to offer, and need to get a copy. Right now, my husband and I are trying to get our food storage and preparedness in order. This book would be great to do so.
