It's a comprehensive book on how to get ready for coastal hazards that potentially could strike Guam.

There are specific instructions on how to retrofit wood and tin structures for typhoon readiness, make a family communication plan, prepare your home for earthquakes, floods, typhoons and tsunami, how to work with FEMA, and much more. The book is free to residents.

Dr. Biggs will be distributing the book on Saturday from 11am to 1pm.
