Developed in 2010 by Public Health-Seattle & King County, the Survivor Tales comic book series is intended for local health departments in suburban or rural settings who want to increase personal preparedness messages to a wide variety of clients. The Survivor Tales series is currently available in English and Spanish in both print and digital formats.
Survivor Tales comic books tell the real-life stories of individuals who have weathered major disasters. The comics show how a disaster might play out and help readers determine what they might need to be survivors, too. These stories showcase how neighbors and communities can pull together and provide practical tips from actual survivors.
This series of comics are broken down into three different personal preparedness messages addressing Flood, Earthquake and Hurricane preparedness. Each story is told by a real life survivor and shares with the reader how they too can respond to a disaster.
