The Union Creek Journal

A Chronicle of Survival

2012 LDS Preparedness Manual

Although The Union Creek Journal’s final entry has been posted and I’m working on the sequel, from time to time I’ll still post items that I think may be of interest to my readership here on the UCJ blog.

One of those items is the LDS Preparedness Manual.  The new 2012 version is out and available for free download.  WARNING: You must provide an e-mail address to access the free version of the manual.  However, I gave them my e-mail address some time ago and the only e-mails I have received have been notifications of new versions of the manual being available.

Regardless of your religious leanings and/or affiliation, if any, the LDS Preparedness Manual is an excellent resource for those looking to safeguard themselves against the potential of coming disasters.  I’ve utilized the manual myself for several years and highly recommend it – especially to those who are just beginning the preparedness journey.

Here is the link to the manual: LDS Preparedness Manual

Enter your e-mail and download the manual at your own risk.  As I said, I haven’t had any problems, but that’s not to say that the manual (or anything else that you download from the Web) is 100% safe.  The manual is in PDF format and PDF’s have been known to represent something of a security risk.  As with anything downloaded from the Web, be sure to adequately scan the manual for viruses, malware and other electronic nastiness.

Be prepared,

  1. Magnificent information pertaining to this subject. Thank you
    for posting.

  2. You don’t even need to post an email address.
    Just click the “View In Browser” button and the “Download” button below that. The pdf will load in a browser window and you can “save as” onto your machine.

    I don’t agree with the religous points of the Mormons, but they seem to be good people and they have their prep stuff together. Chedck out their canneries for storage food. Brilliant.

    It gives me an email addy to use for stuff just like this.

    Just as a heads up, the manual page requests an email, but does not verify the email or send you the download link. Feel free to use (or any other fake email with correct formatting if you don’t feel like using your real email.

      If you use your real address you will receive an email invataion to join a forum. I thought was presented in a professional and courteous way, not like high pressure spam. I appreciated the link and have saved it for future use.

    I have been an LDS member since I was a kid. Since the first of the year, our church has been handing out prepardness pamphlets to each of the congregration. In all my years of going to church, this is the first time this has been done. Normally LDS members are told to prepare at least one years supply of foods and other necessities for you and your family. But now it seems that the church is really pushing for all its members to prepare for even longer than one year. Your story of Union Creek has also “put a fire” under me to do even more. Good work and very good story. Can’t wait until the sequel begins.

  9. So Part 2 starts tomorrow, right Mud? 😉

  10. This is a great resource. Thank you for posting the link.
