Just in Case

How to Be Self-Sufficient When the Unexpected Happens

Disaster can strike at any time. How will your family stay warm, fed, and sheltered during a power outage? Do you have an evacuation plan if you are forced to leave your home? Be prepared for the unexpected by following Kathy Harrison’s practical plan for emergency self-sufficiency. Learn how to evaluate, organize, and rotate your food supply; pack an evacuation kit; protect important documents from fire; develop a communications system; make nutritious, delicious meals with canned and dried pantry items; use alternative heating sources; and entertain the kids without television or computers. Everything you need to know to survive when public services fail is covered in this essential guide to family preparedness.

“. . . is a great how-to book. It covers the basics and is ideal for home, schools, and offices. This book has information that will save lives.”
— Russel L. Honoré, LTG, U.S. Army (Retired) Commander of Joint Task Force Katrina

“An ideal preparedness guide for families. It is a must for the bookshelf of anyone that is serious about being prepared for emergencies.”
