Why Sudden Storm?

Disasters, around the world and close to home, appear to be occurring more and more often.  Natural disasters, as well as those caused by human action, seem almost commonplace.  Whenever a disaster strikes, there are nightly news stories, often with a caution that “It’s only a matter of time until the same thing happens here.”  As a result, many people who aren’t directly affected briefly imagine themselves in that situation. 

You, personally, may have become alarmed and motivated to prepare for the possibility of a similar event happening to you.  But daily demands on your time and resources are more immediate and pressing.  So time passes - yet in the back of your mind you know preparing for an emergency is important for you to do.

With this reality in mind, Sudden Storm offers a simple, comprehensive series of fact sheets, action plan worksheets, and projects. We've researched information from a wide variety of the most credible sources and pulled it together for you in one place.

The information is designed to be applied at your own pace, in your own way, and to your personal situation.  In doing so, you’ll be prompted to use imagination and creativity.  You’ll become more self-reliant and take actual steps toward protecting yourself and loved ones.


BENEFITS. Our product will:

  • Help you successfully shelter at home or evacuate
  • Reduce reliance on government assistance, which may not be immediately available
  • Enable you to survive on your own for a planned period of time
  • Increase practical knowledge, with a focus on safety, comfort, and reducing stress
  • Inspire creative thinking, problem solving, self-reliance, and personal empowerment
  • Guide you through the process of creating your own, unique, personal emergency plan and evacuation kit
  • Encourage families to communicate and work together, while creating a realistic plan and engaging in easy, fun, educational projects
  • Provide materials that can be used as a teaching tool


FEATURES.  There’s a wealth of information about emergency preparedness and response available.  But researching the subject, especially online, can lead you down a rabbit hole of scattered, confusing, and sometimes conflicting information.  Many websites are vague and very limited, while others go into great depth about only a single topic.  

  • We’ve researched materials provided by many credible sources, and present the results in one clear, simple, organized format. 
  • Essential topics are covered, and knowledge is provided about not only what you should do, but also why and how you should do it. 
  • Unique features include action plan worksheets for creating your own personal emergency plan, as well as projects for gaining hands-on, practical skills.  
  • Sources are provided for learning even more about a wide variety of subjects. Documents are embedded with active (clickable) links.


VALUE.  People are aware enough of potential emergencies to be vaguely worried but are usually daunted and busy dealing with current, more immediate needs.  Even if you have time, it's hard to know where to start.  If you’re on a tight budget, you may feel you can’t afford it.

Sudden Storm provides an inexpensive way to get moving on the road to emergency preparedness now.  It takes some work, but caring for loved ones during a storm is invaluable.  Being prepared for a potentially life-threatening situation is priceless.
