Dear Fellow American,
My name is Bob Livingston, editor of The Bob Livingston Letter™.
The truth is, natural and man-made disasters are relatively common—and appear to be growing more frequent and more extreme.
Even worse, if you do face a major disaster in your area... you'll probably be on your own, at least in the initial stages.
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005, at first it appeared government agencies were poised to respond. News crews covered the approaching disaster. Officials issued statements as the weather grew worse. The governor was on TV.
But once the hurricane hit, help was difficult, if not impossible to find.
With the exception of the U.S. Coast Guard, which single-handedly rescued half of the 60,000 people stranded in New Orleans, most government agencies failed to respond adequately during Hurricane Katrina.
More than 1,800 people died as a result—with more than 1 million people evacuated and 300,000 homes destroyed.
Every year, hundreds of millions of people worldwide are evacuated or driven from their homes due to natural or man-made disasters.
The Munich Re Group, a reinsurance company that tracks worldwide disasters, estimates that there are about 750 to 850 large-scale disasters every year—with the total death toll ranging from as low as 10,000 deaths (in 2009) to as many as 250,000 (in 2008 and 2004).
The most deadly disaster is fire. Fire kills more Americans than all other natural disasters combined—the overwhelming number (85%) occur at home.
In 2009, fire departments responded to 377,000 home fires in the United States, which claimed the lives of 2,565 people. In addition, there were 78,000 wildfires spread over 6 million acres.
The most common disaster is flooding. According to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), everyone in the United States lives in a flood zone.
It's only a question of whether you live in a low, moderate—or high-risk area.
You are 6 times more likely to face a flood at home than you are a fire. While floods only kill an average of 200 people a year in the U.S., the property damage is staggering.
Beyond fire and flooding, however, there are many other types of disasters or emergencies you may face:
- MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: More than a third of the U.S. population, about 120 million people, visit U.S. emergency rooms each year...
- EARTHQUAKES: The U.S. Geological Survey estimates there are 500,000 detectable earthquakes each year with 100 or so serious enough to cause damage...
- TSUNAMIS: Tidal waves, while rare, can be very deadly. The tsunami that struck Southeast Asia in 2004 killed 229,000 people within hours...
- DOMESTIC TERRORISM: The most common form of terrorism Americans are likely to encounter is a deranged maniac with a gun. For the past decade, there has been an average of 10 incidents on school campuses, each and every year, with the death toll ranging from 1 to 32...
- TORNADOS: The U.S. has more tornadoes than any other place in the world and averages 1,200 tornado sightings each year...
- HURRICANES: Hurricane Katrina was hardly unique. In that year, the U.S. saw 27 named storms and 15 full-blown hurricanes. Nine out of 10 hurricane deaths are due to storm surge (a rise in the sea level caused by strong winds). Storm surges can get up to 20 feet high and 50 miles (that's right, miles!) wide!...
You Can Avoid Becoming a Statistic on the Evening News
Fortunately, you're NOT helpless before or even during a major disaster.
There are many simple, easy, inexpensive steps you can take right now to prepare for the most common disasters you're likely to face—and ways you can cope even during catastrophes, such as a medical emergency.
I've arranged for you to get a special disaster preparedness and first aid manual that I believe should be readily accessible in every home and automobile in America.
It's called In Case of Emergency, and it's chock-full of proven survival strategies, disaster preparedness techniques and the very best First Aid information that can make all the difference in a true emergency.
One example: If someone you love suddenly seems a bit confused and has difficulty speaking, do you know what to do? Are you aware that, if you fail to take the correct action quickly enough, your loved one could die needlessly?
As you know, I believe that disaster preparedness equals self-reliance. The steps you take now to prepare for possible disasters will make you stronger... more independent... and more self-reliant than you are now.
As usual, you won't find this privately printed manual in stores. I've arranged for a specially printed edition exclusively for my extended family of readers, and I've made sure it's filled with practical, real-world strategies for coping with the catastrophes that are becoming increasingly common in our troubled world.

Disaster-Proof Your Family for EXTREME Weather Emergencies
You don't normally think of Southern California as a place where torrential rainfall destroys property.
But in January 2011, that is precisely what happened: More than four inches of rain flooded cities throughout the Greater Los Angeles area, causing massive flooding and mud slides.
Entire freeways were washed away. Concrete channels cracked. Homes toppled down hillsides, leaving their uninsured owners homeless and financially devastated.
What's more, weather experts are now predicting that Californians may face a disaster even greater than the giant earthquake that has long been predicted: a "superstorm" that could flood a quarter of the state's homes and cause $300 billion to $400 billion in damage.
Experts say cataclysmic storms have struck California in the past and one is now long overdue—a biblical flood that could dump 10 feet of water on the state.
The truth is, no matter where you live in North America, you face the possibility of an extreme weather emergency.
Whether it's a hurricane in Florida... a tornado in Oklahoma... flooding in the Pacific Northwest... blizzard conditions in Canada... blistering heat waves in Arizona... a tsunami in Hawaii... or raging wildfires in Nevada... almost everyone should be ready for some sort of emergency.
Why Advance Planning Can Mitigate the
Effects of Many Natural Disasters
Fortunately, you can prepare in advance for the most common extreme weather disasters in your area.
Experts call this "mitigation," an effort to lessen the impact disasters have on people, property, communities and the economy.
It is also about reducing or eliminating risks before disasters strike and involves planning, commitment, preparation and communication between local, state and federal government officials, businesses and the general public.
Some examples of mitigation you can do yourself include installing hurricane straps to secure a structure's roof to its walls and foundation... building outside of flood plains... securing shelves and loose objects inside and around your home... following disaster-effective building codes and standards... using fire-retardant materials ... the list goes on and on.
One example: After decades of wildfires in the Southwest, residents have learned some very effective techniques to prevent their homes from burning. In the great Laguna Beach fire of 1993, most of the homes in the fire's path were reduced to a pile of ashes while a few, that had fire retardant landscaping and construction, stood standing without so much as a smudge.
The same is true of flooding: While it may not be possible to avoid all damage from flooding, there are steps you can take to protect your loved ones and your property.
For example, you can elevate fuse boxes, breakers and meters to high locations in your home—and install "check valves" in sewer traps to prevent flood water from backing up into drains.
Earthquakes, while terrifying, also can be mitigated in advance with proper preparation.
There are many ways you can retrofit or reinforce your home's foundation and frame. Other earthquake-safety measures include installing flexible gas lines and automatic gas shutoff valves. (Changes to gas lines and plumbing in your house must be done by a licensed contractor who will ensure that the work is done correctly and according to code. This is important for your safety.)
In your copy of In Case of Emergency, you'll discover literally HUNDREDS of little-known steps you can take to prepare for, and survive, virtually any natural disaster. For example, you'll find out...
- One simple reason you should always go downhill when escaping a wildfire. Page 56.
- Four ways to avoid getting caught in a tornado... Page 129.
- How to stay alive in a small room with little air during a fire. Page 96.
- 3 often-overlooked safety precautions that could save your life during a flood... Page 57.

Strategies for Protecting Your Loved Ones from Civil Unrest and Domestic or International Terrorism
Violent riots and protests can happen suddenly, without warning, any time and any place. Many events can erupt into dangerous civil disturbances: A police shooting, a bad court decision, a rowdy crowd after sporting events, or racial tensions in a neighborhood.
Sometimes a peaceful rally, concert or party can turn violent and spill over into neighborhoods or business districts. Sometimes authorities can block off the affected areas—other times things may just go crazy.
For example, in 1999 in Seattle, anti-globalization protests suddenly turned violent and people caught in the ensuing melee were badly hurt. The Rodney King riots in Los Angeles were another example.
In addition to civil unrest, however, there is also the still-ominous threat of terrorism—both domestic and foreign.
Terrorism is the use of force or violence against persons or property usually for emotional or political reasons or for ransom. The main goal of terrorists is to create public fear and panic.
Terrorist strikes can also occur in the most unlikely of places. In 1995, the second-worst terrorist strike in U.S. history occurred in Oklahoma City when three anti-government survivalists blew up the federal building with a car bomb packed with fertilizer, killing 168 people and wounding 650.
The Chilling Reality of Terrorist Shootings
Because of 9-11, Americans tend to associate terrorism with bombs... but a far more common terrorist threat is a lone gunman armed with a semi-automatic or automatic weapon.
While there have been only a few successful bomb attacks by terrorist groups in American history, there have been literally dozens of terrorist attacks waged by disgruntled or insane individuals in American elementary, high schools and universities.
In 2007, for example, a lone gunman at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Seung-Hui Cho, was able to gun down 32 people before he eventually committed suicide.
The next year, a graduate of Northern Illinois University killed six people and wounded 17 others when he opened fire in a crowded auditorium before he, too, killed himself.
Altogether, there were at least nine school shootings in both 2008 and 2009 in the United States and 11 in 2010.
In early 2011, a mentally ill community college student in Tucson, Arizona, shot and wounded a U.S. Congresswoman, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and killed six people, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge.
While there is little an individual can do to prevent spectacular terrorist strikes like the bombing in Oklahoma City or 9-11, there are strategies you can use to cope with more limited terrorist strikes.
In your copy of In Case of Emergency, you'll discover what counter-terrorism experts say you should do in a variety of different situations. For example, you'll discover...
- What to do if you're caught in a riot... and 2 things you should NEVER do in a crowd. Page 42.
- When to be suspicious of persons taking photographs of critical facilities, asking detailed questions about physical security or dressed inappropriately for existing weather conditions. Page 85.
- How to recognize and avoid "target-rich" environments terrorists look for. Page 79.
- The chemical agents, such as sarin and nerve gas, terrorists can use to strike population areas—and how to spot symptoms of chemical poisoning. Page 88.

- What to do if you or someone you know receives a "suspicious package"... Page 110.

Surviving Nuclear Power Accidents, Hazardous Waste Spills and Other Man-Made Disasters!
The World Nuclear Association reports that, as of October 2008, there are 439 commercial nuclear power reactors in 30 countries with 367 more reactors under construction or planned.
The U.S. has over 100 commercial power plants, mostly on the East Coast and in the Midwest, and Canada has 20 power stations.
Even though governments and associations monitor and regulate construction and operation of plants, accidents are possible and have happened.
For example, in April 1986, a power outage at the nuclear power station in Chernobyl, Ukraine, resulted in an explosion in the reactor, sending a radioactive plume over a wide area and resulting in the evacuation of 300,000.
While 53 reactor technicians died directly as a result, it's estimated that another 4,000 people died from the radiation exposure in subsequent years. Most of these victims died from cancer.
Unfortunately, accidents at nuclear power stations are not the only worry when it comes to nuclear power. That's because the 9-11 terrorist attack alerted technicians to another possible threat: A direct attack on a nuclear facility.
What would happen, for example, if terrorists flew a 747 jet directly into a nuclear power station? Safeguards may prevent a full-scale meltdown of the reactor, but the possibility of widespread fallout is still real.
In addition to nuclear accidents, another real danger is the accidental or deliberate release into a populated area of hazardous materials—either chemical or biological.
There are more than 500,000 products transported in America that can pose a serious health hazard—ranging from waste products produced by a petroleum refinery to materials used by your local dry cleaners to pesticides stored in your home.
Most hazardous materials are transported around the country by road, rail and through pipelines potentially causing spills on highways, near railroad tracks or underground.
Your copy of In Case of Emergency also covers what to do if you face exposure to nuclear or other hazardous materials.
- 3 very simple things you can do to limit and reduce radiation exposure. Page 72.
- How to easily and affordably protect your family from the most dangerous aspect of a nuclear accident. Page 73.

Step by Step First Aid for the Most Common Medical Emergencies
You may or may not ever face an earthquake, flood or hurricane. You may or may not get caught in a riot, be exposed to hazardous wastes or a nuclear accident.
But it is very likely that someday you, or someone you know, will have a medical emergency requiring immediate first aid.
When that happens, you'll be very glad you know what to do—at least until help arrives.
Think about it. If someone you love starts clutching his or her chest from what appears to be a heart attack, do you know what to do?
What if you are in a car accident and you or one of your companions is bleeding profusely? Do you know how to stop the blood flow?
What about a stroke? If someone you love loses his or her balance and has trouble speaking, do you know the first thing you must do?
How about choking? You're in a restaurant and your dinner companion starts grabbing their throat! Do you panic... or take the correct action?
Any time there's an emergency or disaster, most people either don't have a clue what steps they should take immediately or are too scared to act.
It's at times like these when knowledge of basic first aid can really come in handy.
It Pays to Be Prepared
As the old Boy Scout motto says, you should be prepared for medical emergencies.
For example, stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States—and fast action is absolutely essential for the victims' survival and recovery.
Doctors now even use the acronym FAST as a diagnostic tool to use when you suspect a friend or loved one may be having a stroke: F (absence of facial movement?), A (can they raise both arms?), S (can they speak?), T (time to call 911).
The reason for the urgency: The vast majority of strokes are caused by a blockage in a blood vessel that can be dissolved by a special emergency medicine (known as t-PA) if the patient gets to a hospital within an hour or two. Delay can mean death or permanent disability!
As a result, telling someone to "lie down and rest" may be the worst possible advice if a stroke is suspect.
That's why it's essential that you send for a copy of In Case of Emergency right away.
It contains dozens of helpful checklists and tips on what you can do in a wide variety of medical emergencies.
For example, you'll discover...
- The ABCs of first aid (the first three things you should check when someone is hurt)... Page 158.
- What you need to know about Good Samaritan laws—and why you need to ask someone's permission before you help them. Page 159.
- When you should call an ambulance... and what to do before it arrives. Page 160.
- 2 things you should NEVER do when treating burns. Page 174.

- What to do immediately if you suspect someone is suffering from heat exhaustion or dehydration. Page 193.
