Description

Synopsis:

This handbook will help you to establish a practical disaster preparedness plan for your entire family. The 2ND EDITION has been expanded to include discussions of long-term food storage options, firearm selection and handling, disaster preparedness networks, radiological emergencies, our country’s impending financial collapse, and much more. Steps are also provided to help you prepare for the five deadliest types of natural disasters: earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and tsunamis. This new larger 8″ x 10″ format includes easy-to-copy worksheets to help organize your family’s preparedness plans.

Additional information is presented for the elderly, those with children, people with disabilities, pregnant women, and pet owners. Every topic is well researched with over 280 references cited.

 

From the Author:

Right out of the gate let me tell you what the book is NOT. It is not a book about fighting off hordes of flesh-eating zombies, should they ever rise from the grave. Nor will it describe how to survive a shipwreck by feasting on coconuts and roasted iguana. Finally, it is not intended to help you survive our planet being sucked into the cosmic fireball affectionately known as our Sun. If you wish to prepare for those types of events, I respectfully suggest that you continue your search for a more suitable text.

This book is designed to help your family prepare for more commonplace, yet still potentially deadly ­disasters. The list is long and varied, and includes hurricanes, tornados, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, pandemics, financial collapse, widespread blackouts, and much more. My hope is that this handbook will accomplish three things: (1) motivate you to become better prepared, (2) illustrate how to prepare effectively, and (3) help you to realize your place in a larger movement.

The handbook is clear and easy to read with more than a hundred photos, illustrations, and worksheets. What makes this book different is that it focuses on practical steps that you and your family can take to become better prepared. At the beginning of each chapter, is an example scenario designed to help you consider your current level of readiness. At the end, are brief lists of recommended supplies.

This handbook will help you to lay out a plan that includes assessing your family’s needs, stocking supplies, shoring up your shelter, leveraging existing resources, mitigating potential hazards, and preparing for likely threats. At the end of your efforts, you will be rewarded with knowing that your family is far better prepared to handle real world challenges.

--From the Author

Will you be a ready for a dozen different kinds of disasters, including hurricanes, civil unrest, mass shootings, and wildfires?

You want to be prepared for whatever emergencies come your way. While prepping for a dozen different disasters may sound like a daunting task, there’s good news.

Preparing for a wide variety of disasters requires the same basic supplies as preparing for one or two. For each event, there will be some special steps, unique information, and precautions you need to take, along with a few additional supplies, but your essentials will be the same. Learn how to prepare for:

  • Earthquakes
  • Tornadoes
  • Hurricanes
  • Winter Storms
  • Wildfire Evacuations
  • Pandemics
  • Nuclear Disasters
  • Mass Shootings
  • Civil Unrest
  • Economic Crises
  • And More!

With directions, helpful appendices, checklists, and general guidance to getting prepped, this book will get you away from panic and straight to safety.

Camp Cooking covers it all: from meat, to fish, to vegetables, baked goods and sauces. Fred Bouwman explains it all in easy-to-follow steps. This information has been tested and retested in the field. Much of it is just not available anywhere else and Bouwman lets his expertise run wild here. Chapters include information on building campfires that are serviceable for cooking, selecting the best camp stove, utensils, and how to pack and carry a camp "kitchen." Bouwman also looks at the myths and the facts of safe water purification while camping, and teaches methods for safely purifying your water supply. The book closes with a great section on selecting using the wide selection of foods available to today's camper.

Features of Pocket Guide to Emergency First Aid from Pocket Guides Publishing:

  • Sections dealing with all kinds of medical emergency situations
  • Great companion guidebook to the Pocket Guide to Outdoor Survival
  • Spiral binding lets pages lay flat for easy reading in the field
  • Side tabs let you find the right chapter quickly
  • Fully waterproof (tested by soaking in water for months on end), and astonishingly durable - dirt-proof, tear-proof, wind-proof, kid-proof.
  • Pages are made of specially formulated, heat-treated, PVC plastic - polished, resin-coated polyvinylchloride polymer). Pages feature:
    • Bright white printing surface - all printing is clear and precise
    • Virtual indestructibility - the pages can't rip or tear, and the corners won't bend over
    • Flexibility - pages can bend without breaking
    • Washable surface - just wipe clean after use or wash in water
    • Steel rule die cut with polished edges - the corners won't poke you while in your hand or in your pocket, as often happens with plastic printed materials
    • Will not warp, fade or deteriorate. (Keep out of direct sunlight for prolonged periods - nothing can prevent the sun's ultraviolet rays from "yellowing" any kind of paper or plastic. Under normal conditions it will take years of use for these Pocket Guides to "yellow", and even then they will remain clear and perfectly readable!)

Learn How to Start a Fire, Even When It Seems Impossible!

Since the dawn of mankind, fire has been a staple of survival. Whether it is used to keep warm, cook food, or scare away predators, fire is an essential element, one that is almost impossible for humans to live without. But with society's current dependence on modern tools and technology, many persons would have no idea how to start a fire without matches or a lighter. In an emergency situation, a lack of knowledge about it could easily prove fatal.

In Guide to Making Fire without Matches, survival expert Christopher Nyerges provides readers with all the skills that they may need to start a fire without modern tools. The book begins by covering the history and lore surrounding fire, and then moves on to describe, in detail, the four main methods through which fire is made: friction, the sun, electricity, and chemistry. Additional topics include:

How to make a fire in the rain
The best locations to build a fire
Safety precautions to take when around fire
How to tend your fire
How to make a signal fire
Different ways to cook with fire
And much more!


With helpful diagrams, illustrations, and sidebars, Guide to Making Fire without Matches is the ultimate reference book for learning about an essential element.

This is a full-color edition of the very first Boy Scouts Handbook, complete with the wonderful vintage advertisements that accompanied the original1911 edition, Over 40 million copies in print!

The original Boy Scouts Handbook standardized American scouting and emphasized the virtues and qualifications for scouting, delineating what the American Boy Scouts declared was needed to be a “well-developed, well-informed boy.” The book includes information on:

  • The organization of scouting
  • Signs and signaling
  • Camping
  • Scouting games
  • Description of scouting honors.


Scouts past and present will be fascinated to see how scouting has changed, as well as what has stayed the same over the years.
