Summary

Summary

A practical, all-encompassing guide to disaster preparedness—from avalanches and blackouts to pandemics and wildfires—from NBCNews senior medical correspondent and emergency medicine physician Dr. John Torres

Few medical doctors are more impressive or media-savvy than Dr. John Torres, aka “Dr. Disaster.” An emergency room physician and US Air Force veteran, Dr. Torres has spent his career on the front line, saving lives in all sorts of disasters. In his role as senior medical correspondent for NBC, Dr. Torres provides sound and medically proven advice and insight for the entire nation, keeping us well informed as we face the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
In Dr. Disaster’s Guide to Surviving Everything, Dr. Torres shares the essential advice you need to survive any emergency and worst-case scenario, from natural disasters like lightning strikes, hurricanes, and pandemics, to human-made ones like terrorist attacks and active-shooter situations. Dr. Torres has seen it all, from late nights treating patients in the ER to early mornings covering the country’s latest crisis on NBC/MSNBC as a medical correspondent. His entire job is to think about the best practices that will allow each of us to be self-sufficient in an emergency—and now he’s sharing this hard-won knowledge with readers.
 
Unimpeachable, reliable, and at the same time, highly readable, this book is full of hacks that could save your life, such as
  •    Why you should never use a landline during a thunder storm
  •    Where the safest place to sit on an airplane really is
  •    How to start a fire with common household items
  •    The first thing you should do every time you enter a shopping mall
 With Dr. Torres’s voice in your head and this guide in your pocket, you will be ready for anything, no matter what the future holds.
