Your brain is screaming, “Freeze!” or “Run!” or “Fight!” — and, your kids are absolutely scared to death. They’ll want to bring their pets, their favorite stuffed animal. They’ll want to cling to you or be carried to safety — and in that moment, what will you do?
A few years ago our home was overcome with blinding, toxic fumes, and after a few moments I realized that we had to get out or, quite possibly, die. I rushed around grabbing our pre-packed toiletry bags, clothes, and a few things to keep the kids occupied and we did, in fact, evacuate to a safe location.
I still remember that night, and when I sat down to write this book, Emergency Evacuations, I wanted to create an easy-to-read handbook to help other families prepare and survive an evacuation.
What did I include?
No one is living your life and is dealing with your unique set of circumstances, so I wanted to include solid advice that would help families with:
- Lots of pets (We have 6!)
- Special needs kids
- Elderly parents
- Infants and toddlers
- Super-tight budgets (Not everyone can evacuate to a fully equipped second home!)
I also wanted the book to be just as practical as my first book, Survival Mom, so you’ll find checklists for:
- Evacuation Supplies Checklist (Click here to get it for free!)
- Evacuation To Do List
- Last Minute Packing List
Available in paperback and Kindle
