I'd think that non-electric thermometers are still available at places like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. If not, they're fairly cheap online from Walmart or Amazon.

For your brimstone planning, you may want to add a copy of Dr. Alton's "Survival Medicine Handbook". http://amzn.to/2bEExXR

Dr. Alton writes from the position that there may be an interruption of service for some time, and modern medical treatments may not be available. As such, he includes some older treatments that are better than not treating at all.

Training, Training, Training.


Very well said.

I was privileged to take a suturing class from Dr and Nurse Alton and it was excellent. They were very clear that suturing is not to be done in the field and not to be done when higher levels of medical care is available.

My kits are mobile. I used the Home & Vehicle Bag to make one of my kits.

The Traveler Bag to make a second.

And I modified this kit.
