Christopher Parrett the editor of the LDS Preparedness Manual has announced the 2012 edition, which is the most current release.
While released a few years ago I recently now stumbled upon this so I suppose others may find it of use as well. If you click over to the LDS Another Voice of Warning Site, you can download the entire thing – free on Pdf. 429 pages of very good prepping info.
The Mormon Church has been a leader for more than a hundred years – we could say they invented the prepping niche and not be wrong. The manual covers just about every imaginable condition.
For all the good prepping info it contains it would be unwise to skip on this.
I have posted about the Church Of Latter-day Saints canning operations and long term food storage options that they offer and you can read it by clicking here. They really aim to help people out and if you are in range I would suggest paying them a visit in person. Anyway, moving back to the book.
As mentioned to download the file for free visit: https://ldsavow.com/PrepManual.html and follow the instructions over there.
If for some reason that website above is not accessible you can also access the file from our server by downloading it here: LDS Prep guide.
We are in no way affiliated with LDS. We are, however, highly impressed by them.
The contents of this booklet are intended to assist individuals and families in coping with emergency preparations. However, final decisions on preparation for actions taken during an emergency are the sole responsibility of individuals. No one knows your needs or can take care of you better than you can-nor does anyone else have that responsibility.

An electronic PDF version of this manual is available to download FREE OF CHARGE to any member of the LDS-AVOW Forums in the “Download” area. This printed version has been made in response to the many requests we have had from members that do not want to print out such a large amount of information.
