Our articles pages, called "Life Lines" are informal articles and stories about real disasters, emergency events, and useful survival information. The articles are written by professionals and non-professionals who have insights, experiences, or information they want to share. These are free articles you can download for your home or workplace Disaster Information.

If you work in Fire or Ambulance EMS, or a Hospital Emergency Room, or if you’ve had a personal real-life experience in an emergency yourself, please share it with our readers. Write up your informal, essay-type story or article about any topic related to disasters, large or small, natural or man-made, and what it was like for you. You don’t need to be an experienced or professional writer; we’ll fix the grammar and spelling if needed. We’re looking for real stuff from real people.
