(1) Overview of Preparedness. Larry Borland will lead a discussion (interactive with group members) on the many facets of Preparedness. Meant to stimulate honest reflection by the attendees regarding actual preparedness for the spectrum of disasters that can occur. Detailed handouts and recommendations for web sites.
Dave Powell will lead a discussion on Risk Analysis and Preparation Levels - I have written this to assist in 'getting your head around' the issue of Preparedness. Important factors to consider are not only the type and severity of an event, but the sociopolitical reaction to it. Please check out the article here:
(2) Food & Water. Dave Powell will present and lead a discussion on this most basic of preparedness. We will have some samples of Mountain House freeze dried foods.
(3) Medical Emergencies: Larry Borland (a pediatric anesthesiologist also ATLS certified) will introduce and discuss issues regarding medical preparedness. Recommended survival pack lists as well as suggestions on training.
In addition to the freeze dried food samples we will have some light snacks and beverages - but if you want diet soda you should bring it :)
