Review

With the assumption that "many of us have a false sense of security... assuming that technology will prevail or that some government agency will bail us out in a crisis," this extensive guide gives detailed, down-to-earth advice on what to do when disaster strikes, be it a house fire, an ice storm or biological terrorism. Aided by charmingly retro illustrations vaguely reminiscent of a 1940s air raid brochure, Harrison (Another Place at the Table) presents her "OAR" system for preparedness-organizing, acquiring and rotating supplies-and techniques to safely and even comfortably survive any kind of emergency. She shows how to prepare for a short-term crisis: building a supply of food and water; preparing first aid and evacuation kits; planning communication and a family meeting place in times of crisis. She also presents long-term strategies for self-sufficiency: "eliminating debt and securing a supply of cash in your home"; planting a garden, canning food and making cheese; replacing an inefficient fireplace with a woodstove; building a solar oven. Harrison shows that learning to do it yourself, besides providing some security in an increasingly insecure world, brings less obvious but perhaps equally important benefits: "an incredible sense of self-sufficiency and independence." And pointing out that family preparedness can build community, she reminds readers, "crisis can bring out the best in people, or the worst. Strive to be one of the good guys."
(Publishers Weekly, August 2008)


Kathy Harrison's "Just in Case" is an ideal preparedness guide for families. It is a must for the bookshelf of anyone that is serious about being prepared for emergencies. - James Wesley Rawles, Editor of www.SurvivalBlog.com, and author of "Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse"

She s not a survivalist nut case .instead, she s a rather ordinary homeowner and parent who wants to be able to take care of her family. "

Her wisdom is delivered in a tone of pioneer optimism. (7/31/08)

Synopsis

Author Kathy Harrison guides readers through the empowering process of setting up such a home system with her OAR method - Organize existing supplies, Acquire additional necessities, Rotate everything for freshness. Her comprehensive coverage of emergency preparedness includes food storage, alternative heating sources, personal supplies for every family member, entertainment ideas, toiletry and proper clothing, pet supplies, emergency family communication plans, and neighbourhood cooperatives.In addition to preparing the home for extended periods without electricity, Harrison also discusses evacuation plans - where to go, how to meet up with family, what to pack, and how best to protect all that's being left behind. Self-sufficiency at home or in a temporary safe haven takes away much of the fear and helplessness associated with disasters. "Just in Case" puts the power back in the hands of individuals who are equipped and ready to take over when public services fail.Disasters can strike an entire region or a single unlucky family.

They can be brought on by weather (hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, wildfires, severe heat or cold, landslides) or by man (terrorism, acts of war, simple human error). Whatever the cause, these catastrophic events have the potential to disrupt routines and cost money and lives. Why not be one of the prepared few? Just in case...
