For the 58 percent of Americans who live in cities, emergency readiness plans involving underground bunkers stocked with a year’s worth of food are simply not realistic. The new book, Urban Emergency Survival Plan: Readiness Strategies for the City & Suburbs, delivers common sense, easy-to-accomplish methods to stay aware and be equipped for the types of emergencies and threats city dwellers may face. Urban Emergency Survival Plan is now available as a print book or digital copy at, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other major booksellers.

Author and survival blogger Jim Cobb encourages readers to abandon an “It could never happen to me” mentality with Urban Emergency Survival Plan because disasters happen, and the odds are that eventually every reader will one day be faced with having to survive by his or her own skills. The book covers everything from developing a detailed get-out-alive plan for various situations to finding water and meal planning. Cobb first educates readers on the threats that could affect those living in urban areas, including weather disasters, an electrical grid collapse, terrorism, epidemics and more, before offering his advice on preparing individuals and their families for the unexpected. Readers will also gain an understanding of the government’s disaster response.

Urban Emergency Survival Plan includes emergency plans for creating shelter at home, evacuating the home, sheltering at work and getting home. Cobb teaches the reader how to defend himself and his family from the negative changes in other people’s behavior that occur when food becomes scarce, or the power is out for days and help is not on the way. Plus, he shares the fundamentals of stockpiling food in the city, first aid, storing emergency water and creating bug-out bags. Checklists and step-by-step instructions throughout ease the planning process for readers.

Emergencies happen everywhere; be better prepared for the unexpected with Urban Emergency Survival Plan, available now.
