From natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods of biblical proportions to concerns about the economic downturn and government shutdown, the hits just keep on coming. At the same time, the power grid is incredibly fragile. Our dependency on widely distributed long distance systems for power, medicine, and food makes our society susceptible to attack, whether by foreign or domestic enemies, or the weather. No matter the concern, the solutions are the same.

With The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness, anyone can learn how to: - Secure a water source-even in an urban area - Grow and preserve food - Set up an alternative energy supply - Maintain a comfortable shelter -including alternative cooking and sanitation methods during a long power outage - Bug out-what to include in your bug out bag and how to leave - Prepare for medical issues - Deal with security concerns Preparing for disruption of services in an emergency is a noble venture which gives peace of mind.
