The cover tells the story: this book gives you Just About Everything You Need to Create a Comprehensive FAMILY EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN.
An innovative new strategy allows any size family to create a highly personalized plan for surviving real-life emergencies with comprehensive risk analysis, non-food and food lists, menus, worksheets, and planners.
The Plan includes four Levels of Preparedness based on specific assumptions and projected personal situations.
Seventy-two hours in extreme circumstances Fourteen days, anticipating the probability of rapid evacuation, and without any outside or public services; Three months at home, without ANY outside services; and The mother of all preparedness plans – a whole year- with only limited outside services
Preparations are based on Categories of Need and each level builds upon the previous level. Most families can achieve the 72-hour kits through 14-Day Grab & Run Packs almost immediately, by recognizing items they already have on hand- but are scattered among their belongings.
Tools include comprehensive lists, worksheets, quantity conversion formulas, a phased purchase plan and purchase tracker, a years worth of menu-based meal plans, and best of all MOTIVATION! And a newfound peace that will surely result from the umbrella of safety this plan provides.

John and Teena Read married in July 1985. Between them, they have seven grown children from previous marriages. Time has added fourteen grandchildren and three great grandchildren. A native Idahoan, John spent a brief part of his career in northern California before returning to Idaho, and Teena was raised in the northeast but migrated to Idaho in 1976 after stops in Florida, California and Oregon. Professionally, both are retired from positions as business managers: John for a large Boise law practice, Teena for a thriving architectural firm. After Teena left her full time employment, they began their own consulting business. Frustrated over the lack of comprehensive information about food storage and emergency preparedness they wanted to achieve, Teena and John decided to create their own plan. It took almost two years before they’d complete everything: developed the plan, purchased what they needed, organized, and put it all away. Was it easy? No! Was it worth it? Absolutely! Even if they never have to rely upon these preparations, the peace of mind and sense of security they gained from their endeavor was worth everything that went onto attaining their goal. They hope their readers will have similar experience as they strive to create an umbrella of safety and security for their own families.
