There are many survival and emergency preparedness resources available on the Internet (including this one, of course). The Librum has a fairly extensive library of documents on their website. Most of the documents are classic (as in old) but are still relevant. The files are all in PDF, so you need Adobe Reader on your PC — Mac users can use the built-in Preview app.
