Survival Guides

  • Hurricane Preparedness

    01 Nov 2005

    It didn’t take long for the “blame game” to reach critical mass after Hurricane Wilma tore through South Florida. Emergency water and ice distribution centers ran out of supplies, even though the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had delivered more than 300 truckloads of water, ice and meals three days before Wilma came ashore, according to the Miami Herald. Failure to maintain adequate supplies of food and water in a disaster can cause inconvenient situations, or worse, threaten your survival.

  • Emergency Water

    27 Oct 2005

    America’s top disaster preparedness agencies have consistently offered the following advice: Maintain the equivalent of 3 gallons of water for every family member in your home. This covers drinking and sanitation needs over the critical 72-hour period when you may be on your own (1 gallon per person, per day), as rescuers tend to those most in need of assistance. After seeing footage of a ravaged New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, should we keep more than the recommended amount of safe drinking water on hand to increase our chances of survival?

  • Hurricane Season

    18 Oct 2005

    Tropical Storm Wilma has officially developed into the 12th hurricane of the 2005 season, and experts predict it will reach Florida by the weekend. By now, all of us are used to hearing about hurricane categories, which are based on a five-point scale. In fact, most Americans are speaking weather-ese and abbreviating them (“a cat 3 is about to hit”). But what do these numbers actually mean?

  • Animal Disaster Relief

    26 Sep 2005

    Farmers in areas battered by Hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia and Rita face unprecedented challenges. In Alabama, Mississippi, and Lousiana, approximately 825,000 head of cattle and calves lived in counties that sustained hurricane-force winds, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The survival rate of beef cattle in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana is devastating. Of 15,000 cattle, 10,000 are presumed dead—a loss estimated at $8 million.

While human lives take priority in any rescue effort, many residents refused to heed mandatory evacuation orders because they didn’t want to leave their beloved pets behind.

  • Death and Disaster

    09 Sep 2005

    Hurricane Katrina has forced us to examine our feelings about death, denial and disaster preparedness. Disasters test our mettle as individuals and a populace. We don’t want to think about the potential for catastrophic events like Hurricane Katrina—and yet they occur. Denial is the No. 1 reason why families fail to purchase disaster kits that contain critical supplies that can increase their chances of survival and save lives.

    02 Sep 2005

    If you have postponed or waffled over your decision to preplan for emergencies or buy a disaster kit, the horrific images of Hurricane Katrina serve as your personal wakeup call. Even if you live in a state that’s not prone to hurricanes, you may eventually have to survive a fire, earthquake, tornado, winter storm or terrorist attack.

  • Florida Hurricane Season

    26 Aug 2005

    Florida residents have learned the hard way that denial invites property damage, pain and suffering, and fatalities. They endured four hurricanes last year, which caused almost $50 billion in damage. This year alone, they’ve weathered 11 storms—and it took this double-digit onslaught to convince many Floridians to purchase disaster kits to protect their families, shore up their homes to brave heavy winds, and make a commitment to preplanning and preparation.
