When it comes to surviving a disaster, most people in this country live under the false illusion that help is coming; it’s not! When disaster strikes, our government will not be able to save you; you need to understand that reality, and then take steps to protect yourself and your family. You need to become your own first responder.
In The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide: Self-Reliance Strategies for a Dangerous World, Robert Richardson, author and founder of OffGridSurvival.com, teaches people how to prepare for the coming chaos. Richardson says, “The book was directly inspired by what I’ve witnessed in the emergency preparedness community.”
Richardson, who has been an emergency preparedness consultant for over a decade has seen it all, and what he’s seen isn’t very pretty. “I’ve been talking to people about the importance of personal preparedness for years. But I decided to write this book after attending a number of very high-level emergency preparedness conferences with some of the nation’s top emergency responders.”
Richardson warns, “These people are not ready to respond to anything. I’ve always known how incompetent most of these government agencies are, but even I was shocked to witness it firsthand. Over the years I’ve attended a number of government run emergency preparedness conferences, and they all have one thing in common. Conference after conference devoted to teaching our nation’s first responders how to respond to the media.”
“Instead of learning how to better respond to disasters, these conferences are all dedicated to topics like PR after the agency drops the ball, how to talk to the media without making the government look bad, and how to respond to the public via social media. Instead of figuring out why things went bad during past disasters, these agencies more concerned with learning how they could have made themselves look better, both during and after the disaster.”
The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide is a wake up to anyone who hasn’t prepared. This is not another wilderness survival manual, or some government pamphlet on 72-hour survival kits; the book is a step-by-step guide to surviving real-life 21st century threats. From surviving natural disasters, man-made disasters and disease outbreaks, to step-by-step instructions for surviving urban disasters, crime, violence and terrorist attacks, readers will learn the self-reliance strategies they need to survive just about any crisis or threat. When disaster hits, do you really want to count on some government agency to ensure your health and safety?
