Disaster Guide Books

When a disaster strikes, will you be ready? Our Master Your Disaster series of guidebooks allows you to do just that. Author, Leann Hackman-Carty uses several real-world scenarios to help you visualize your own vulnerabilities and “Stand APART.” By following the steps of this simple acronym and Hackman-Carty’s other insightful advice, you will learn how to assess risk, plan your response, activate the plan, recover successfully, and template your activity into an easy-to-follow format. Disaster recovery is not an individual effort. Hackman-Carty’s work can help you start dialogues within your community, your business—even within your own family—about the best ways to keep everyone safe in the event of a major emergency.  Don’t wait—the time is now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the former head of the New Zealand Aid Program, managing disasters across the Pacific during cyclone season was an integral and critical dimension of my role. The information in this book is invaluable. With the rapid increase in natural disasters and severe weather events in recent years, disaster preparedness and planning is absolutely essential for individuals, communities and for businesses to mitigate risk, loss of life and cost. If only Leann Hackman-Carty's book had been compulsory reading before New Zealand's big earthquake hit Christchurch in 2011!

Leann's guidebooks on disaster recovery could not be more relevant or timely.  Hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunami's, earthquakes, monsoons, floods and fires make us all vulnerable since we don't know when they're going to happen, or the devastation they will leave behind. Preparedness is not an option but a necessity. Finding a way forward must be done.  Whether it is short-term rebuilding or long-term recovery, we need to have a plan in place. Leann's guidebooks provide practical templates to help individuals, businesses and communities face less traumatic impacts by having a plan in place, and the necessary confidence to act.  Having partnered with Leann on a manmade disaster in the past, the impact of designer drugs on Native Americans in the United States and Canada, I not only endorse her guidebooks for Canada but will personally recommend them to the seven public interest groups in the United States that represent states, cities, counties, regional communities and tribal governments. We must do better!

The content in these guidebooks is invaluable to prepare businesses for a disaster. On a global scale we have witnessed the significant impact of disasters on businesses and communities. Being prepared for various risks is a smart thing for a business to do if it wants to have continuity of operations.

No business should be without a copy! In the Business Edition of Master Your Disaster, Ms. Hackman-Carty not only explains why you should have a method to handle any disaster, but also explains some of the economics of not being in business after a disaster. A great read for all businesses.
