some disaster preparedness links for you

Hi folks!
In light of September being Disaster preparedness month; I thought I'd post some relevant disaster links for you.

www.vnh.org

This is the link to the Virtual Naval Hospital. There are a large number of interesting first aid/medical books available for free download from this site.

www.equipped.org/toc.htm

A site which has all sorts of information on disaster preparedness gear; reviews of equipment, and lots of "how to's" with regards to surviving various natural and not so natural disasters.

http://www.fda.gov/ora/training/food_emergency_salvage.htm

This site is from the US food and drug administration. This site has a wealth of links on food storage preparation and salvage in disaster situations.

http://foodsafety.ifas.ufl.edu/HTML/y2k.htm

This is from the National food safety database; and gives tips on how to prepare for food and water shortages. Some might think this site to be a touch dated (with references to Y2K, etc) but the tips are useful

http://helid.desastres.net/

This site is from the UN/UNHCR and has a wealth of downloadable books on a variety of health and safety issues arising from disasters.

http://www.survivalring.org/pdf-index.htm

This link has an extensive list of downloadable books on a variety of subjects relating to disaster preparedness. There is a good amount of truly fascinating reading on this site.

Folks,
Enjoy these links and the learning you can get from them.
