A large-scale disaster strikes while you’re at work. The roads are clogged, communications are down. Do you have a plan of action? You know how to find your family in the chaos? Or do you have what you need to make it back home safely? Disasters — whether man-made or natural — present a whole different set of challenges in urban environments.

Using a contemporary look combined with stunning photography, RECOIL OFFGRID takes a fresh look at these and other emergency-related scenarios from the URBAN/CITY dweller’s point of view. We speak to experts about what to do to stay alive and how. Plus, we feature products, equipment, and supplies that all urbanites should use. Topics covered in the magazine include survival gear, food preparation, medical care, protection, and communications, as well as prepping your home and vehicle.
