Disaster: Recovery is a down-to-earth book that explains how you and your family can cope during and particularly after disasters such as floods, bushfires and typhoons that can and do happen (not just may happen) around the world at any time. It is one thing to survive the initial impact of a disaster. It’s quite another to survive the subsequent fallout. Water and electricity may fail, phones may stop working, roads may be impassable, food and fuel stores often run out of supplies. Medical help may be unobtainable as emergency services must scale priorities. This globally applicable book explains the whys and hows of surviving those vital first few weeks following a major disaster, and includes advice on the basics of being prepared. This is a book virtually every Australian home should have on the shelf.
