The single most important reference for modern day survival …
This is the home of the book “When There is No FEMA – Survival for Normal People in (Very) Abnormal Times” (“NOFEMA”) – an essential reference for anyone interested in preparing to make it through these increasingly dangerous times.
You are not here by accident. If you found your way here, you are looking for information to help prepare yourself, your loved ones, and maybe your community, to deal with these daunting challenges we are all facing. If that’s the case, you are but a few mouse clicks from what has been referred to as the most complete modern-day disaster preparedness reference ever written – a book that has been described as being “encyclopedic” by one senior preparedness trainer.
NOFEMA is probably not a book you’ll obtain and immediately read from cover-to-cover; it is the book you’ll turn to again and again to focus on specific topics – personal, home and community defense, emergency food and water, first aid and treating illness, sanitation and hygiene, tending a garden, growing crops, raising chickens and small livestock, hunting, fishing and foraging, weapons and tactics, precious metals – and the list goes on.
Richard Bryant, the organizer of one of the original and largest prepping groups in the US, authored this book after realizing that none of the survival books available provided sufficient breadth and depth of knowledge to enable his own family to truly survive a major disaster. Over three years he labored to create this book – as if his own family’s survival depended on it. Unlike other preparedness books, NOFEMA is not a “Frankenstein” copy-and-paste job from other sources – it is all original material, authored with painstaking research and created using the same tools used to produce classroom textbooks. So much research went into this book that the bibliography alone is 19 pages (many other prepping books provide neither bibliography nor index).
When other preparedness books might suggest that you “grow corn”, NOFEMA identifies the growing seasons, specifies how deep to plant seeds, how far to space the rows, what soil to plant in and how to deal with pests. It provides similar degrees of detail on virtually every aspect of disaster preparedness including – not to be found elsewhere – organizing your own local community to survive the full range of worst-case disasters. While other disaster preparedness books are only superficial and “fluffy”, NOFEMA covers the critical and more serious aspects of survival –the “life and death” stuff – the formerly-unimaginable circumstances that have suddenly (and sadly) become all too imaginable.
