How to Prepare for a Nuclear Emergency
As Japan’s crisis continues to unfold, many of us (especially those who live on the West Coast of the U.S.) are worried about nuclear radiation reaching our shores. At this point it doesn’t appear like the radiation levels are high enough that the Westerlies will end up carrying dangerous amounts of it to the U.S.
Whether it does or not, I thought this would be a good time to introduce an excellent resource for those interested in how to prepare for nuclear as well as many other disasters.
This brings me to The Survival Mom who had a great guest post written earlier today by Janet and Bill Liebsch (authors of It’s a Disaster). In the article they lay out some quick tips on what to do if the nuclear situation got bad enough that warranted action on our part.
I thought I’d piggy-back on that by pointing you to the two free, downloadable resources they referenced which go into detail on how to prepare yourselves for nuclear disaster:
- What are YOU gonna do about …A Nuclear Power Plant Emergency? (this is an excerpt from their excellent book called It’s a Disaster.
- What are YOU gonna do about prepping for a nuke?
As a side note, I recommend purchasing their book It’s a Disaster. This 268-page paperback provides quick-reference instructional bullets on how to deal with many different types of disaster and is perfect to keep in a bug-out bag, car, home, or office. Here are just a handful of the subjects it covers (for a complete list check out the table of contents ):
- Family Emergency Plan, Kits & Shelter
- Disaster Preparedness & Prevention
- What to do in case of…
- Nuclear Power Plant Emergency
- and more…
At just $14.00 this comes much cheaper than many of the other preparedness books out there and the eBook (in PDF format ) version is a steal at only $2.50, allowing you to download and have it instantly. Check it out!
