For anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency evacuation, this primer provides guidelines for assembling a bug-out bag with supplies to cover your essential needs (food, water, shelter, first aid, and communication) for approximately one week. Presented in the accessible swatchbook format (sturdy laminated flashcards that fan out like a Swiss Army knife),Emergency Bag Essentials is the ideal entry point for anyone who wants to be better equipped for emergencies, but who doesn't want to be overwhelmed with elaborate preparations. Written by a professional firefighter and community organizer for the New York City Preppers Network, this swatchbook outlines the contents of a quality getaway bag in the clearest way possible. One item is featured on each card, with details about why you should have it, how to use it, and recommended brands. -- Amazon.com.
