  • Helpful Survival Information: Survival and Austere Medicine

    A friend of mine helped to write this book which was placed on line last year.
    It takes a few minutes to download. I was not sure where to place this exactly but First Responders seemed a good choice. Not everyone will be able to use this information, but it may be helpful to some.

            I am asking RR over at Austere Medicine since I have not printed it out yet, though I have read much of it.

            He has also said that they are updating the material to include some info on pandemic influenza.

              The document is 213 pages in Acrobat. Some printers have options that allow you to print 2 pages, or even 4 pages, on a single 81/2 by 11 or 11 by 17 piece of paper. And some printers can duplex (print on both sides of the paper). It depends on the printer you have.

              While it is cost effective to download documents directly to your computer for reading and reviewing at your convenience, the consensus is that you need to print off and have a hard copy of any information you want to refer to during a pandemic. There is always the likelihood that you may not be able to power your computer during a pandemic. Also, it is not always convenient to take your computer to the location where you need to review the information. i.e. you would not want your computer in an isolation room, nor would you want to have your computer next to you for reference if you are trying to fix your water pump in the middle of your pond.

                Thanks Al, I had just gotten pretty much the same answer. Also the pictures are in color.
