But there is more, than just waiting for the next alert. You can and should look ahead and prepare for the next crisis. There are a number of manuals, that can help you survive longer in any dangerous situation. First of all I want to mention the US Army survival guide, which is a really worth reading. It’s not to long so you can get through it in a few hours and then you definitely know how to react if there is a war happening.
Another similar tool to get notified about natural disasters is the DisasterAlert app for your BlackBerry. DisasterAlert shows you natural threats on a map so you can quickly react should anything happen nearby.
