    As a paramedic turned RN, I constantly amaze my co-workers with some of my "archaic" bandaging techniques. My co-workers will slap a 4x4 gauze or non-adherent pad to a wound and wrap some Kerlix or Coban around it and call it good. I started years ago wanting to be a paramedic after watching...
  2. General Discussion
    Though we have not made a deliberate survival plan, we routinely maintain a lot of extra food and household supplies. Often, a neighbor or two will "borrow" something, which we gladly give. We are an elderly couple with a very large family living in the neighborhood. If there should be a...

    I have heard good things about Emergency Essentials, but my experience is making me look elsewhere. I recently did a small $100 order to sample some Mountain House stuff, (awesome by the way) but EE messed up and shorted the order as well as sent me peas instead of the green beans I ordered...

He shook his head and said, "You have no idea!" Has anyone thought that UPS/Fedex delivery guys know who has preps of...

    I'm thinking about buying several superpails from EE just to get my long term food supply kick-started. However, I have a question about the superpails. Are the metallic liners sealed? The reason I ask is because the pictures on their website show "open" metallic liners, not sealed (see...

    Looking at the Emergency Essentials catalog and wondering about FD meats, cheese & fruit. Just how good is the FD meat? Honest real user comments anyone? My last experiment with some Beef TVP was a dismal failure so am looking for the real thing, only in an altered state. Also, the cheeses...
