A Survival Primer
With a final jarring impact, the plane comes to an abrupt stop. For a split second all is eerily quiet. You remember to breathe. Your head clears. Wiping your hand across your eyes clears your vision, but the blood on your hands brings everything into focus and you recall what’s happened. Got to get out and get out NOW!
A Kid’s Wilderness Survival Primer
Looking up, you notice that the light is growing dimmer and realize you better hurry back to camp before anyone starts to worry. Brushing yourself off and nodding goodbye to the playful squirrels who scatter with your movement, you start off. Suddenly you stop and realize you don’t recognize where you are. Your heart begins to pound as you realize you might be lost. Sweat beads up on your forehead as you try to remember which way to go. Shadows darken as daylight ebbs away. How could you have gotten lost? What are you going to do? Somehow you’ve got to get back to camp!

Winter Power Failures
Power supply interruptions can last from a few hours to several days and are often caused by freezing rain, sleet storms and/or high winds which damage power lines and equipment. An extended power failure during winter months and subsequent loss of heating can result in cold, damp homes, severe living conditions and damage to walls, floors and plumbing.

Hurricane Survival Guide for Small Businesses
Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida on Monday August 24, 1992, just before 5:00 a.m. With winds exceeding 140 miles per hour and gusts of more than 175 miles per hour, devastating damage was inevitable. In the aftermath of the storm many residents found themselves not only homeless, but unemployed. About 90 percent of the businesses located in South Dade were significantly damaged or destroyed. Many of these businesses were small businesses that typically do not carry enough insurance to cover property damage and business interruption. Due to this and many other factors, small businesses have a difficult time recovering from natural disasters such as hurricanes.
The desert is beautiful and deadly. Danger is always present, especially once you leave well-traveled roads. Not only strangers but also Sunday sightseers have found this to be true. The way to stay out of trouble is to think in terms of trouble.

Emergency Preparedness Guidebook
Disasters or emergencies can occur in many forms, anywhere and at anytime. Floods, tornadoes and chemical spills can strike any community, including ours. If you’re unprepared for a disaster, it can shatter your life. If you are prepared, you can be a survivor - not a victim. Victims believe that major disasters occur in someone else’s neighbourhood. Victims don’t plan for emergencies. So when disaster strikes, victims are overwhelmed by stress, trauma and injury. Survivors expect the unexpected and plan for it. They know what to do in a crisis. When disaster strikes, survivors are in better control and get back on their feet quickly. Many communities are not equipped to handle all the demands of a disaster. Help your community by preparing yourself. Be prepared: Make sure everyone in your family knows what to do before, during and after an emergency. Set up a family meeting this week to discuss how you can best prepare for an emergency. Don’t be partners with panic. Have a plan.
Disaster can strike at any time. Planning will reduce the harsh impact of hazards. Following a disaster, emergency response officials will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. Therefore, it is important you create a disaster preparedness plan. This plan will be a powerful tool during an emergency - it will provide you with greater control, and thus reduce the stress of the situation, while saving lives and reducing the cost related to disasters.
