Seems like using drones is another tool in S&R -- anyone seen them in use or have good articles?

05/24/15 02:55 PM Lessons Learned: Never Want To Be This Cold Again by Doug_Ritter

Stuart Bell was just going to spend an hour snowshoeing in Colorado, but things didn't go as planned. It was a very cold night...Stuart tells his tale and then analyzes what went wrong and what he might have done different. I then also takes a look at the survival experience and offers up some of his own advice.

Thanks to Stuart for sharing his experience that others may benefit from the lessons learned.

05/15/15 05:27 PM Earthquake (1974) Movie by MoBOB

Last night on TCM they showed "Earthquake" (1974). what I found very interesting was the evacuation improvisation that the Lorne Greene character came up with. SCENE: Panicky employees are going down the stairs after the quake. They come to a section where about two floors worth of stairs are missing. SOLUTION: The in-building fire hose and an office chair were fashioned into a sling to lower the folks who were injured - and the ladies, of course. Looked pretty cool. Feasible? Opinions?
