    I remember first attending classes such as this in the 1990's. I would say that it was on par with first aid classes the company I worked for paid for me to attend back then. I was very impressed with how they selected that most important material to cover in the short time they had. Look forward to part two.

    Well worth investing the afternoon to the class.

    I've posted the slides from this meetup on the More > Files section of this group. There's a lot of information in there, so it will take some time to digest.

      The presentation was terrific. I've been taking every opportunity I can to learn more first aid. I've been to Patriot Nurse's course and think you and Sammi did a very professional job that complimented what I learned there. One thing I've learned recently is the importance of being medically prepared. I suffered a nasty 2nd degree burn on my hand and was fortunate that I had the appropriate supplies and knowledge to treat it. I had to rely on myself as there was no other adult around to help. I was very glad I was prepared!

      Very informative! Thanks for all the effort with the slide deck.

      January 11, 2014

  • Barbara H.

    Very professional presentation by Michael and Sammi. A ton of information jam packed into 3 hours. So worth the time. Their effort is very much appreciated and I look forward to Part 2.

    Sorry guys, I'm backing out last min. There is an issue I've been watching closely and it looks like things are moving forward. Those in power are trying to fast track the Trans Pacific Partnership, and the bill was quietly introduced today in the senate. I found out that there will be a protest at Piatt park on Saturday at 2. While this is going to be a great class and I'm sorry I'm going to miss it. This issue concerns me a lot, and I can not sit buy and just talk about it. Totally bummed there is a conflict with the two. Have a great class!

    January 2, 2014

    • KJ W.

      Mike, So Milford library at 2pm?

      January 2, 2014

    • Michael

  • Andrew L

    This upcoming meeting will be my first one, so I figured I'd share this info about first aid:
    http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/02/20/the-natural-way-to-speed-wound-healing.aspx

    Manuka honey and medical grade honey can be applied to wounds to kill bacterial infection and prevent infection. The FDA has even approved some specific kinds of honey:

    "FDA authorized the first honey-based medical product for use in the US. Derma Sciences uses Manuka honey for their Medihoney wound and burn dressings, which can be found online from medical supply stores. Amazon.com also sells them"

    January 9, 2014

    • Michael

      Thanks Andrew. We actually do mention Manuka honey and its uses in the presentation. Its really good stuff, especially in the age of many antibiotic resistant bacteria

    Hey folks,

    Please be aware that we are encroaching on the max number of people that can fit in the Oakley meeting room. We have about 30 from our group plus some people from Columbus that might join us. As a backup, I have reserved the Blue Ash Public Library from 12:30 - 4:00 which holds 50 people. Please keep this time slot open in case we need to switch things up.

    In the meantime, please accurately state your RSVP and any people who might be joining you.

    • KJ W.

      Mike I will have 6 in my family attending even though RSVP only allows +2

      January 1, 2014

    • Dave G.

      I'll be there - just me

      If your bug out plan entails heading from urban to woods, you should at least pack camo as your secondary outfit. I do completely agree that you should not head straight out of the house with it on. Your goal should be to slip out unimpeded and unnoticed.

      I totally agree. I would dress "normal" minus a few cotton clothing. Same outfit I would wear as if I'm backpacking but add on some "street clothes" so I look the outdoorsy type of folks in suburbia and urbia. Also, hide or put your tactical looking bags into the main BOB once you're out of the city. I was in NYC a 3 years ago and had my 5.11 tactical bag loaded with camera equipment for photo shoot in Manhattan, needless to say I got a few stares in the subway by some folks since I had this bag with mag pouches all over it. By the way, any LEO and military folks can pick you out fairly easy.Those bag do make great EDC bags which I rotate using going to work based on the season.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
