The Survival Savvy Family has helped open my eyes to the necessity of being prepared. Not just being prepared for natural disasters, but for unpredictable day-to-day situations: power outages, major and minor medical information from treating nose bleeds and sprains to recognizing a possible fracture. And anything else you can think of in a compact information filled book. It reads like a manual and will help take out the panic that can ensue when life gets unpredictable. Survival Savvy Family will be your guide on what to do and what you will need to do it.
Julie nailed it!How does this book differ from others with a similar subject? LOTS! First, the style of writing is very comfortable and easy to read. You don’t need a dictionary to understand what they are talking about. If there are more technical terms, they are explained. Also, there are check lists and step by step instructions on how to handle different situations you may find yourself in.The focus of this book is on realistic things that can and do happen. Not a meteor hitting the earth, no alien invasions, and certainly not a zombie apocalypse. Instead, it covers fires, home invasions, storms, and the decision to stay in place or get out to a safer location. With realistic, very down to earth perspective, I think you will find “The Survival Savvy Family” to be as refreshing a read as I did.
Every new parent and homeowner should have one of these handy guides at their finger tips. With common sense and loads of detail, Julie covers every aspect of taking care of a family during emergencies.
I've often thought about being more prepared for some of the bad things that can happen in life, and I've even taken a few half-hearted steps, like collecting a few things for a woefully inadequate emergency kit, before getting overwhelmed and just hoping everything will always be ok. Specific and concise, this author details steps to take in tough situations so rationally and concretely that I can't help finally putting a few quality plans in place. Complete with worksheets and checklists, this book is a working document that will help readers remember details and plan for scenarios they have not yet even considered, while not feeling like an over-the-top "doomsday prepper" manual. It includes chapters on talking to your kids about danger without scaring them and exactly what to do in several different kinds of medical emergencies. From go-bags to insurance coverage, from fire proof safes to self-defense, this comprehensive little book has it all. It could prove to be a life-saver ... literally.
I am currently reading this book and I love it. From the handy size, to the font, and the great writing style, this book is easy to handle. Of course, there's the great information packed inside too! No hysterics and overblown hype in this book. Ms. Sczerbinski has a way of making the process of knowing how to handle emergencies seem like second nature. There is no fear mongering and no exaggeration in the book, just solid information and tips, organized in an easy to follow format. Every home should have this book as a reference and hopefully at least one member of each household will have read it cover to cover. Being prepared does not have to be a scary thought! Two Thumbs UP!
A fantastic guide for those just starting out in getting their family ready to face disasters. The Survival Savvy Family helps you decide what type of preparations your family needs to make, and then gives you step by step instructions on how to accomplish them. Julie even makes the process whitty and fun instead of doom and gloom. :) Instead of worrying about "what if," let Julie help you create some peace of mind by getting prepared!
Julie is an excellent writer, having read her blog. This book is fantastic! I like how she has logically laid out her book as well as covered every topic that preparing families will need to know. Her checklists and planning sheets are great and even helped me think about some areas I do not have very well covered.
