New book, When the Grid Goes Down, covers the six key areas of home self-reliance and how families can prevail in place when disaster strikes.
Flagstaff, AZ January 23, 2013 – Designed as a companion to the previously published Surviving a Disaster, this how-to book covers how to prepare for both short-term survival ranging from 24-72 hours as well as long-term situations resulting from a grid-down emergency or pandemic. It includes realistic strategies that families can immediately implement for preparing their home and sticks to the essential methods and gear for getting started.
The author of the book, Tony Nester, is an internationally recognized expert on survival and self-reliance. He has authored four instructional books and three DVDs and provides hands-on survival courses for the military special operations community, US Marshals, NTSB, and FAA.
Nester who lives in a passive solar, strawbale house, points out that, “Learning survival shouldn’t involve a fear-based approach and you won’t hear any doom and gloom rhetoric in this book. Urban survival preparation is meant to be empowering as you plan for your specific region, acquire pertinent skills and cut through the gear-hype to find out what is necessary to face a real-world emergency.”
When the Grid Goes Down covers water storage and purification, alternative water sources, creating a “water map” for your city, the three essential food types to stock up on, designing an off-grid medical kit, home security measures, as well as coping with energy blackouts. There is even a Q & A section taken from the author’s survival courses over the years.
“You won’t find any rehashed emergency checklists. Everything in the book comes from real-world applications and has been rigorously field tested over the years as well as being utilized daily in our own home,” says Nester.
