Whether it’s a natural disaster, power outage, security breach, or even a mass shooting, many of us are woefully unprepared to deal with disaster in a proactive way, whether at home or in the workplace. The truth is that 99% of disaster plans ultimately fail when put into practice, the majority of “emergency equipment” does nothing but gather dust, and the aftermath leaves people shaken, not stronger.

That’s where Design Any Disaster comes in, with a unique approach to disaster preparedness that actually works—and will empower you to protect your home, your family, and your business.

The most common methods of disaster prep are unhelpful at best—and harmful at worst.

It’s time for a revolutionary new approach, from the founder and CEO of the largest disaster management company in the US.

Whether it’s a natural disaster, power outage, security breach, or even a mass shooting, many of us are woefully unprepared to deal with disaster in a proactive way, whether at home or in the workplace. The truth is that 99% of disaster plans ultimately fail when put into practice, the majority of “emergency equipment” does nothing but gather dust, and the aftermath leaves people shaken, not stronger.

That’s where Design Any Disaster comes in, with a unique approach to disaster preparedness that actually works—and will empower you to protect your home, your family, and your business.

Patrick Hardy, a Certified Emergency Manager and Master Business Continuity Professional with more than 25 years of experience in emergency response, has written plans for families and small businesses from coast to coast. In Design Any Disaster, he’ll equip you with the critical mindset and practical tools you need to respond to any emergency. You’ll learn cutting-edge recovery techniques designed by Hardy and used by celebrities, CEOs, and high-net worth individuals to help them turn a disaster into an opportunity to be stronger after overcoming it.

Using Hardy’s proven “3Cs” method (Commanding, Communicating, and Carrying-Out), readers will learn how to:

  • Create an easy-to-use disaster plan for your family and business
  • Stay calm when disaster strikes, transforming yourself from a bystander to a leader in seconds
  • Evacuate, shelter-in-place, and lockdown safely and effectively
  • Recover quickly, getting your life back to normal in just a few weeks
  • Reverse disaster, using the disaster into an opportunity to positively change your life

This isn’t an off-the-grid survival guide. It’s a powerful, practical book to help everyone, from families to small businesses to large organizations, prepare for emergencies in the real world. A disaster doesn’t have to stay a disaster. It can be an opportunity to make you stronger, happier, and healthier. The key is to control the disaster, so that it can’t control you.
