The manual here is intended to present the reader with a basic understanding of what to do when an unexpected or unforeseeable occurrence occurs. This is sometimes referred to as disaster planning. The short, but thorough manual provides a detailed description of how to plan for such occurrences. The basics are covered in several areas that pertain to planning for the unexpected. They are outlined in each and every section and chapter so that the reader may refer to each section as needed. This also gives the reader the chance to explore each section on his or her own in case there is an area that needs to be focused on more than the other. Spend as much or as little time as you feel is necessary to go over the chapters and the information in it. There will be parts that come more naturally then others and even parts you may be tempted to skip over. Still continue to read and review each section before deciding which parts to read more thoroughly. The intro and conclusion are two areas which are both summary and reflective. They ask you to explore which tips to ponder the most and which are the most valuable based on your environment and situation. We all live in different environments that give us the opportunity to practice our skills. More challenging environments will need to pay more attention to more tips than others.

But even hard cord city dwellers should expect the unexpected and plan like their counterparts have been planning for decades since living further away from the center of it all Here is what you will learn after reading this book: -The basics of food -Keeping energy and light in supply -Keeping cool and warmth indoors and out -Acquiring information -Drafting the plan -Extra information
