Have you ever thought that being dependent on technology and services is actually a weakness that might cost us our lives if a natural or manmade disaster hits? If you live in an area where floods, fires or hurricanes are common, then you’ve surely thought about this more than once. We might feel now that we are safe, but let’s face it: we can never know what Mother Nature has in store for us. All we can do is try to be prepared for anything, because it is up to us to make sure that our families are safe, warm and well fed in case of cataclysm.
“Urban Preppers with Kids, Pets and Parents” is a guide that you should get on your e-reader, save on your stick, and then print to make sure that you have it close in case you need it. James Mushen has written it having the urban dwellers in mind, as it is more difficult to survive in a city than somewhere at the countryside. If you are a beginner, you will find this book very helpful, because the author starts with the basics. First, he gives some very good reasons why we should all prepare ourselves for imminent natural disasters and learn some survival skills:
“Recognition is the first step in the genesis of an Urban Prepper. Accepting responsibility to take action and safeguard your family is the second step. We pay insurance premiums for our car, home, health and life. Why not include some disaster assurance protection?”
What makes this guide different from any other disaster survival guide is that it also teaches you how to take care of your young children, elder parents, children with a disability, and even pets. Also, James Mushen decided to focus on the city environment because he noticed that there isn’t enough advice on the Internet about how to survive a disaster in an urban area. We, people who live in cities, have the impression that we are safe. But what do we do if the power grid is gone and we are left without light, heat and water? Is there any way we can find water? How about the foods we should store and the tools we should always keep on hand? James Mushen has prepared entire lists for us and much more.
“Urban Preppers with Kids, Pets and Parents” is structured in such a way that you can immediately find the information that interests you. The first chapters deal with surviving disasters when you are at home and you don’t plan to leave someplace safer. The next group of chapters teaches you how to survive in case of evacuation. What should you take with you and what should you leave behind? How do you take care of your pets? Finally, the last chapters analyze each disaster. You will learn exactly how to prepare before a disaster, what to do when it hits, and how to rebuild your life after it’s gone.
If you agree that the future can bring anything and you must be prepared even though you feel safe now, then you must get this guide and read it cover to cover. For more survival advice visit the author’s website: http://urbanpreppers.org .
