Bird Flu, What to Do
Prepare to SurvivePaperback - 2006
"Bird Flu What to Do: Prepare to Survive" is a concise, yet comprehensive book that outlines disaster preparation - with a particular focus on what to do if there is an influenza pandemic - for ordinary citizens, covering food/water storage, special needs of those unable to care for themselves, neighborhood and community organization, home health care under dire circumstance, quarantine preparation, and safety/security issues at home. The book both consolidates resources available to the public and goes beyond what is accessible to the ordinary citizen with contributions from experts in diverse fields, and an extended appendix covering what to get, where to get it and additional information that could prove lifesaving.The book is not fear based, but attempts to normalize disaster preparation, posing it as one the most socially responsible thing we can just do. This book fills the gap between what public health can do and what we ordinary citizens need to do. Communities, neighborhoods, and families that have made the effort to prepare to survive natural disasters will be more resilient if and when a natural disaster occurs.
