  2. Please submit all autograph requests in writing.

  3. Mike,
    On a serious note; DHS is still pushing the "3 day emergency kit".I noticed in the video that 3days "or more" was mentioned. Is DHS finally realizing that a 3 day kit might not be enough supplies for a family or individual? Katrina seemed to prove the fallacy of the 3 day kit; I'm just curious when (or if) DHS will officially tell people to stock "more than 3 days supplies".
    I'll also grab your autograph at the next CERT refresher.Hey, nicely done job on the video.Fairfax County CERT couldn't get any better advertising!
