Staff Reviews

Have you ever heard those radio commercials making fun of the family with no emergency plan? Me too. I keep thinking that I (we) should have such a plan, and then continue on my merry way without committing to or formulating The Plan.

This book will not make a disaster plan for you and your family, but perhaps it will start the dialogue and provide some ideas for probable scenarios and the basic equipment for many types of emergencies from power outages to severe weather and more that we don't even want to imagine on a nice sunny day.

None of us want to believe we are in jeopardy and some of the suggestions here fall outside individual boundaries, however I bet we can all imagine ourselves needing one of the 13 survival kits outlined here.

Be Prepared to Survive Everyday Emergencies

The keys to your everyday survival are: situational awareness, knowledge, and practiced preparedness skills. Sure, it's important to have trustworthy survival gear, but possessing the mindset that you are prepared for anything, and that you will survive no matter what happens, is your secret weapon that will help you to stay alive in an emergency.

Everyday Survival Kits contains clearly outlined packing lists for what you need for specific survival situations. A situation will arise when you'll require more than just a bug out bag or a get home bag--with the help of this guide you'll be prepared to stay alive.

Inside you'll find:

  • detailed packing lists for a variety of kits including: everyday carry, hip bag, pocket survival kit, emergency 72-hour bag, urban survival bag, day hike kit, emergency car kit, vacation kit, student kit, purse kit, extreme weather kit, maritime kit, and the ultimate bug out bag
  • practical applications and detailed instructions of how to use each item in the kit
  • a resources section to take the guesswork out of finding and buying the right gear for the kit
  • non-branded gear recommendations so you can select gear that fits both your need and your budget
  • real-world scenarios in which the kits will be useful
The only person you can fully rely on in a survival situation is you. The more you think about possible emergencies now, and prepare for them before they happen, the more likely you are to survive. The future belongs to those who are prepared, so be ready.
