Mr. Bohan has really done the prepper community a huge favor and saved them many hours of research. There is very little information out there on this particular, critical, subject. I've seen it mentioned a few times in passing in some "how to build bunker" books but not a whole book that has this much information and detail.Mr Bohan covers the theory that a prepper needs to have to supply sufficient air to the people in a bunker. He explains the problem very well then offers pragmatic, inexpensive and useful solutions to this critical problem. He even talks about, and gives suggestions on, how to solve some of the peripheral aspects of properly ventilating a bunker such as hiding vents, plumbing to counter grenades and gas attack...things that most folks don't think about initially but wish they had upon reflection.There is a bit of history. There is a bit of humor. There is a whole boat load of very important information. I believe that this book is better written and much more important than even his two previous books.Emergency Air is the best book on survival in a bunker that I've ever read. Without this book and the proper application of its principals, people will literally die "blue in the face". It is a must for any people that have and plan to use a bunker.
This book provides for some interesting food for thought and field expedient air cleaning systems for inclosed residential spaces during a possible pandemic or any CBRN event. If they work I do not know but I would be interested in testing them and measuring their feasibility. Personally I would rather head for the hills and away from people but that may not be an option. Having clean and sufficient levels of oxygen to breath is one big part, the other is to keeping clean the air inside the enclosed space from what the human body naturally expunges as toxins that build up rapidly, and not to mention someone having a cold or the flu and is sharing your air, or the smells of food and artificial toxins that you are enclosed by such as plastic, paint and other VOC toxins.Building Closed Circuit life support systems in Centralia WA for the US Navy and commercial customers I can say that CO2 is an issue and when all else fails you must be able to safely manipulate and circulate the breathing media in your artificial environment without electricity long enough to out last the possible CBRN environment outside and survive the enclosed habitat itself. Remember you must be able to survive with the other people with you. Its a fun book and I enjoyed reading it while flying across the ocean at 34,000 feet sharing air with over 100 plus others.
I just had to shake my head when I read this book. It is written so easily about such a neglected necessity. We used to tell our kids, when they were little, to breathe. It is important to breathe. This is why I cannot believe that we have not had this topic discussed before. Such an eye opener!!! We are very happy to have this information and hope that it gets into as many hands as can be found. Depend on FJ Bohan to get you the correct information BEFORE you actually have to have it. Get it as soon as possible.
Very little to no B.S.! Informative, fact filled, easy to follow. How systems work, why they work, guidelines to make from scratch with list of supplies needed, where to buy and expected costs on a minimal budget. Where to buy commercial models, contacts, expected costs. Highly recommended. Best compilation of info so far. Must read for this must have life sustaining piece of equipment who consider utilizing a "sealed air" environment.
"Emergency Air" is a great, short read. It's one of those books that tells you what you need to know without belaboring the points. If you have any thoughts of preparing an underground "area" for "storage" then this book is a must read. One thing though - be ready to say to yourself "I should have thought of that". The entire book is common sense (which is in limited supply nowadays). Good luck and keep breathing. . . wherever you find yourself!
I wish it had more on a cheaper DIY way of having fresh air (with no electricity) . Long term use if in shelter for over two weeks.Not enough info.
I felt that this book was an exaggeration and complication of the "air issue". For simplified information on nuclear air issues, please refer to the you tube videos on the topic by "Ark Two". It really isn't that complicated. I won't be using the information in this book and don't consider it an essential book in my library and wouldn't refer others to it. I would refer them to the youtube videos mentioned.
A must have book for anyone building a under ground shelter. Ideas and planes for air in your shelter. Ways to filter the air and ect....
