Students Rewrite Earthquake Handbook into Current Economic Survival Guide
.After the 1989 earthquake that destroyed their city core, local UCSC college students formed the PASS, (a Personal Access to Self Sufficiency) and wrote a comprehensive Earthquake Survival Handbook. Now, with the global economy in chaos, the handbook has been rewritten into a positive Economic Survival Guide.
"Many feel, despite co-called governmental safeguards, today's economic and ecological systems are so fragile that the bottom is already falling out" says Garry Shanty, marketing director for the PASS "the sudden interest in updating our Survival Guide almost came out of no-where" said Shanty. “People are afraid and don’t know what to do”
The PASS Survival Handbook includes both internal and external changes needed to survive. Building a network of like-minded friends, being proactive not reactive to change the focus is not gloom and doom, but “Optimistic Realism”.
"If one does not prepare now for this inevitable situation, simple everyday living will prove to be extremely unpleasant". says Shanty. "People must 'panic-proof' their lives from these uncertain times and not depend on paper currency, banks, food stores, energy sources, city services, communications and the system as we know it today."
There is no charge for the Survival Handbook.
