This is the only book available that deals with the problems of disasters for country folk. Whether it is from High Winds, Floods, Fire, Earthquakes, Power Failures, Deep Freezes, even Emergency Evacuation, you need to prepare ahead of time.
In the country we cannot expect disaster help soon, if at all. We'll come somewhere down on the priority list after all the cities and towns have been taken care of. Then we'll probably have to go into town for whatever aid we can get. It's what can you do for yourself.
What if Mother Nature decides to unleash her fury on your secure place? Not much chance, you say? 44 States are eligible for a major earthquake; the weather predictions for the coming decade say we are due for a major turn in number and ferocity of hurricanes, and the nine significant hurricanes of this season are proof. Include fires, floods, tornadoes, and whatever, plus man made disasters. You had better make some preparation efforts.
What about your neighbors? Or do you consider their fate as part of the natural selection process? Who pulls you out of the rubble if need be? Would you render first aid to the injured, feed the needy, or would you conserve all of your supplies for your family? Are you prepared to fight off marauders? When survivors from town start wandering through the countryside, will you help them? That's what city people do, escape from the city as soon as possible, often with only the clothes on their backs.
Here we are, out in the country, not expecting outside help, and survival is the primary thought. There are some tough decisions associated with any disaster. Better now, to consider them and plan ahead.
We have tried to temper a rather unpleasant subject with stories from our own disaster experiences. The contents of this book worked for us.
