    The Pet Emergency Evacuation Jacket offers excellent protection for your small pet's torso. Not their face or legs, mind you, but what do you expect -- it's only $422. :eek:

    Ran across this on the radiation.org website. When is the last time you heard about this on your local or national news program? Now I need to know where to find a CHEAP radiation detector. How is your daily prep going to change after knowing THIS? http://radiation.org/reading/pubs/HS42_1F.pdf

    I couldn’t be more annoyed. In an effort to help the girlfriend wake up I drug her to a Red Cross presentation last night that was centered on emergency preparedness. It was so full of misinformation and outright bad advice that I couldn’t sit still. Among the information and suggestions they...

    After 2 long weeks and going on 3 now you would think Japan would have those nuclear plants sealed up and contained. However, as people are busy doing their every day things nobody is asking the questions why these plants are not covered in cement and sealed up. The reasons are this: In the...

    Monday found me on my doctor's table being poked & prodded and I asked him if I should get some KI and he just said " Naw-I wouldnt worry about it". Next day at work(welding supply house) a gent comes in for a regulator & a bottle of gas for testing around DFW for radiation. As we waited for...

    I’m pretty much ok with the other particles or dust that’s radioactive. I figure filter it out. Don’t breathe it. Don’t eat or drink it. Keep it washed off. Let it decay. What about Plutonium? How do you deal with that? Is it the same except that it won’t decay while we are on the...

    Tokyo's tap water has now been deemed "unfit" for infant consumption. Plumes of smoke continue to rise from the power plant and the locals are genuinely fearful. These poor people, they have contaminated milk, vegetables and now their ground water. Sad, sad situation...

    Yes, they got the cleanup. Maybe a concrete sarcophagus. But no meltdown destroying the rest of Japan?

    Are any of you seeing new (or maybe renewed) interest in disaster readiness from family and friends? Here and there in the last week, I've had people bring up the subject to me, knowing my interest in it, asking questions and looking for advice. Many of these people previously had shown a...

    I have chosen to stock food/water/gardening supplies and general supplies that may be needed in the event of some emergency. I am sure the majority of people here have set aside supplies to help them through rough times. I got to thinking about the people in Japan, do you think any of them set...
