Lots of info already covered to the more long term members of ETS, but a good reminder article to help you "have the discussion" with disaster deniers:

It is good to be reminded about getting the skills up to par again.

It is almost time for me to do my first aid ticket again.

Curious, the article is from Jan 20, but even then it had outdated links ...

Thanks, that info is particular relevant for me in California. There are about one hundred survival books to buy on Amazon.com. This free reference looks to be more relevant for my particular situation.

Based on your link, I discovered that there are free CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) courses throughout California. I plan to take a course in August. cool

That pdf file you posted ireckon is pretty sweet. A very nice guide that covers all the bases for the area concerned in a compact and easy to understand package.
