Default Plan Ahead!

The Survival and Preparations forum has a couple threads useful to, well, preparation for disasters.

See, for example, the threads on Bug Out Bags (BOB) and First Aid Kits

Also consider keeping ALL of those important documents in a single envelope at ALL times, and then keep that envelope in your safe. This not only helps in everyday life (you'll always know where to find your critical documents!), but if you need to grab the documents and get out the door ASAP, you won't have to go digging around through your file cabinets to gather it all. Just open the safe, grab the envelope, shove it in your backpack and go.

The Department of Homeland Security's "Build a Kit" webpage.

On that page is a link to a .pdf version of the FEMA brochure in terms of what to include.

Is there someone in Orange County who sells the material that isn't so common like the blood clotting stuff and suture material? And is it true that you can get antibiotics from certain pet companies?

Blood clotting stuff would be CELOX or QuikClot, usually, and that's expensive but widely available.

Suture kits are available from veterinarian supply houses - but research the topic.

Many antibiotics - the 'fish' versions - appear to be identical to the 'human' versions, down to the manufacturer and markings on the tablets/capsules.

More detail at the thread http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=736540 on first aid kits; please search the Survival and Preparations Forum for additional threads.

I wouldn't trust the potency, purity of fish or any animal medicines

However in a pinch as a stop gap measure.

As this thread implies if you plan ahead you can stock up on the good human stuff.

Having raise three kids and a wife who all needed their widsom teeth out you be surprised by the amount of pain killers and antibiotics you can stockup on.

Thank you! This is all very good information.

Over the past several weeks, we have been going back thru our emergency preparedness list. We've had bits and pieces built up over the years.

I just got all of our backup drives, SS Cards, ID's Credit Cards etc in a waterproof case (Harbor Freight) and got a change of clothes, shoes etc in a small overnight duffel.

We've gone over our Evac List. We have 3 Levels (Get out NOW, 15 minutes, 1-2 Hours). The list is ready to print and laminate. This will be put near our back door and the bins for each level clearly marked.

We also organized all of our Medical Conditions and Prescriptions along with the prescribing doctor and the pharmacy ph # & RX #. Had to do the same for my mom since she is under our care now.

Be safe all!

Something to consider is that laws and regulations vary based on jurisdiction and circumstance. For instance, a 2016 piece... "I HAVE TO EVACUATE. CAN I TAKE MY GUNS?" ... related to a 'special' law in Florida. Here's what the ABA had to say about that bill and related others in 2014.

Juxtapose that to a North Carolina town this year...

Quote:
A town near the coast of North Carolina updated its state of emergency notice on Tuesday after ordering residents not to sell, purchase or carry firearms outside their homes in advance of Hurricane Florence...
When it comes to California, you might peruse the 2015 CAL OES pamphlet. What is cited in that pamphlet seems to reflect Federal Law as related to firearms and emergencies. Pay particular attention, however, to the limitations and exceptions...

Quote:
...Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit any person in subsection (a) from requiring the temporary surrender of a firearm as a condition for entry into any mode of transportation used for rescue or evacuation during a major disaster or emergency, provided that such temporarily surrendered firearm is returned at the completion of such rescue or evacuation...
Of course, you might note Louisiana's preemption law, then remember what happened after Katrina...



In short, if you wish to include firearms in your list of bug out equipment, you're going to have to spend time figuring out what laws exist in your area which (could) 'alter' the norm in an emergency/disaster. Remember, relief for something you consider 'unauthorized' comes long after the fact and loss of possession of the firearm.

Please read the thread in the Prep forum - more detail on the point there.

Even the CDC uses our metaphors.

Now if they only talked about the data published that estimates 500,000-3,000,000 lives are saved each year with firearms...
