"This book tells you everything you need to know to protect yourself, your home and your family - before, during and after a natural disaster." The idea of the book is not just to help you make preparations but to help you feel inspired, empowered and to save you money. The book checklists it all - the big things, the little things, the obvious and the not so obvious. It lays out everything for you, for your family, your pets, your home, your boat and even your outside shed - what to have, what to do, when to do it, how to stay "up" and how to be "strong." The book focuses on wind and flood, yet so much of what you read here can be applied to almost anything Nature can throw your way.
