EMERGENCIES, from accidents to natural disasters, can happen anywhere, anytime. Sudden Storm is packed with the information you need to be proactive instead of reactive-an inspired, empowered, self-reliant problem-solver with the knowledge, tools, and resources you need to handle an emergency situation.

With detailed instructions and tips, informative illustrations, and an authoritative and approachable style based on extensive research and credible sources, Sudden Storm takes the guesswork out of emergency preparedness. Clear and concise, it provides the essential facts on the most important safety topics including shelter, communication, water, sanitation, food, cooking, fuel, heat, light, and first aid.

In this colorful, easy-to-use guide, get a comprehensive series of: (1) fact sheets , (2) action plan worksheets for creating your own emergency plan, and (3) projects using common, inexpensive materials to help you prepare and practice your skills. Complete the checklist to create emergency kits for every member of your family-pets included, of course. Learn not just what you should do in an emergency, but how and why you should do it. Start thinking realistically and creatively about the steps you would take in a variety of unexpected situations. Include the whole family in preparing your emergency plan, if possible, and have fun doing projects together.

Though it may seem daunting to prepare for an emergency, the potential reward is immeasurable. Caring for loved ones in an emergency is invaluable; being prepared for a life-threatening situation is priceless. Get empowered. Be prepared. If an emergency strikes, you'll be more informed, self-reliant, and comfortable. It may also save your life.
