This book helps you learn what to do in an accident, assault or terror attack. It is the essential illustrated guide to dealing with emergencies at home, at work and on the city streets. It teaches vital moves to protect yourself from attack, including disarming attackers, tackling a burglar and preventing an assault. You can learn what to do in extreme situations: in war zones, under chemical attack, in a flood, in a fire, in a bomb situation, if kidnapped, or if your vehicle is hijacked. Most crime is concentrated in inner city areas, and this practical handbook explains how to deal with many emergencies, from break-ins, fires, accidents and floods, through to hostage situations, bombs and kidnappings. Defensive moves are clearly illustrated and explained. Scenarios include being attacked by a drunk, attacks on women, and attacks with weapons. The book shows step-by-step how to dispatch a bag thief, handle a burglary at home, deal with a gas leak or survive an air emergency. It allows readers to anticipate possible dangers, to kw the best course of action to take in each scenario, and to protect themselves and those around them.
