The world we live in is an unstable one. From natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods of biblical proportions to concerns about the economic downturn and government shutdown, the hits just keep on coming. At the same time, the power grid is incredibly fragile. Our dependency on widely distributed long distance systems for power, medicine, and food makes our society susceptible to attack, whether by foreign or domestic enemies, or the weather. No matter the concern, the solutions are the same. Scott Hunt, the owner of Practical Preppers, and an experienced engineer, homesteader, and pastor, offers readers a complete and detailed guide to sustainable living. With The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness, anyone can learn how to:
- Secure a water source-even in an urban area
- Grow and preserve food
- Set up an alternative energy supply
- Maintain a comfortable shelter -including alternative cooking and sanitation methods during a long power outage
- Bug out-what to include in your bug out bag and how to leave
- Prepare for medical issues
- Deal with security concerns
Preparing for disruption of services in an emergency is a noble venture which gives peace of mind. This book will empower readers of all skill levels and resources to survive and achieve an independent, sustainable lifestyle.

If you enjoy browsing through survival and disaster management books, it is a given that you are looking for books, where you can get tips and techniques on proper water management, conservation, and how to have drinking water, ready at hand in situations of survival, camping, traveling, and even in your house.
This book is going to give you lots of commonsense ways and methods, some modern, some traditional, and technical, so that you can get to know how man has managed to survive in areas where there is a lack of water, the water has been contaminated, or the water sources are drying up, and he has to make do with the amount he has at hand.
In many parts of the world, it is very easy for you to get access to potable water, because of the administration supplying you clean, filtered, and chlorine water regularly, through your pipes and through your taps, possibly 24/7.
But for others in remote areas, where water sources may still be underground wells, which are tapping into underground rivers, nearby freshwater streams and other natural sources of water are the only way in which they can get water to drink and to survive, having large amounts of water ready at hand, to use, and even to waste is still a pipe dream, no pun intended.
And even more so, when the streets are waterlogged in a flood, or the rains have been relentless.
I have been to many parts of the world, where my hosts told me – just do not drink straight from the taps will you, and you are going to be all right.
With the proper knowledge, we can survive!
