Though we don't currently sell books on, we believe preparedness starts with knowing what to do when faced with an emergency situation. We've gathered a small list of recommended reads to help you prepare for an event.

This list is condensed and a starting point for research. This knowledge base is not meant to be a "library" of resources and doesn't endorse or guarantee any content found in these books.
