These books are the backbone of your disaster preparedness. Starting off gentle and deliberate, the Disaster Playbook gets you mentally ready (and organized) to create a comprehensive disaster plan. It then walks you through every step of the process of drafting your plans, collecting your gear, maintaining your work over the years to come, and running drills with your family. And all that hard work is actually fun, because we jammed in as many jokes and activity pages as we could!

The I Will Thrive Manual records it all so you’re ready to rumble when the sirens start blaring. Don’t let the templates overwhelm you. Use the Disaster Playbook as your guide, and you’ll be filling them out like a seasoned bureaucrat. Two copies will keep you in good shape: one for the Go Bags and one for the Stay Bag. Keep this info safe, and save the fun activities for when you’re really in a jam!
