When the grid goes down : disaster preparations and survival gear for making your home self-reliant

Image of item
Disasters come and go each year. It is through developing a self-reliant mindset, having essential survival gear, and a handful of critical skills, that you and your family will be able to prevail in an urban crisis. Jammed with field-tested information from real-world applications, survival instructor Tony Nester covers how to prepare for both short-term survival ranging from 24-72 hours as well as long-term situations resulting from a grid-down emergency or pandemic. Topics include the six key areas for creating a self-reliant home; water storage and purification methods; alternative water sources at home; creating a water map for your region; the three essential food types to stock up on; designing an off-grid medical kit; home security and personal defense measures; safeguarding the exterior and interior of your home; heating, cooling, and lighting when the power goes out; and alternative sanitation and hygiene methods.
