Some links of interest

Hi folks!
It's a slow day at work (for a change) , and I have been poking around on the computer this morning, looking at disaster preparedness sites. Here are a few links I wanted to share with you; you might find them interesting and useful.

http://www.fema.gov/library
This is FEMA's online library; and it has a number of materials relating to disaster preparedness available for download.


www.operationalmedicine.org
As the name suggests, this site relates to medicine in austere, disaster related environments. Lots of manuals available for download (primarily military medicine manuals) and there are many "how to" videos of medical activities as well (like treating burns, treating shock, etc.)

www.alertnet.org/index.htm
This site is from the Reuters news organization; and covers humanitarian disasters occuring all over the world. There is a great deal of background information on current disasters available. The map section of this site is particularly good.

  1. I live on Operational Medicine. Every time we pull out the rescue dummies for the CERT exercises I flash back to watching the Managing a Traumatic Amputation video.
