Re: What to do with windows in a SHTF situation

Any pre-Victorian house may of had shutters*, on the ground floor windows at least. Some houses still have them (I know at least one where they were found behind a layer of hardboard that had been put up by a 50's DIYer). Its quite fashionable to put them back. * English shutters are on the inside o...

Re: Best First Aid Kit

The first thing that always passes through my head whenever someone asks "Which is the best X?" is "For?" Training is better then gear. Gear can be improvised, Knowledge can't be. Buy the kit you can use and don't be tempted to get everything.... Most of us are unlikely to need a pelvic binder. That...

Re: rats and chickens

Remember that rats are phobic of new things, it might be a week of so before you see any result. I've put down bait in the past and had nothing go for eight or nine days, then had to re-fill every day for a week (which sorted the problem) Just had to start baiting again after a long lay-off, I leave...

Re: SCHOOL-EMERGENCY Kit

Pingu: I'm sure we're agreeing. In an emergency the Teacher's (and TA's) job is to look after the kids. A single set of work gloves, one pack of lifeboat rations and a tiny bottle of water are pretty useless. So, what would we recommend as a kit ? So far I'm thinking: Bullhorn (might only need one o...

Re: SCHOOL-EMERGENCY Kit

I am confused as to what this kit is supposed to be for. Is it so the teacher can dig the class out after the roof falls in? Is it to evac. the kids in a controlled manner? Is it to supply first aid in a mass casualty event? Is it to shelter in place during a weather bomb/tornado/flood/WHY Is it to ...

Re: 'manufactured' emergency food packs

Kathy: I couldn't comment on those food supplies (except maybe going :shock: at the price) However, can I recommend you looking into getting a sack barrow. 40lbs of cats and basket (not to mention any other cat necessaries such as food and litter) is a load in itself. The other advantage is for movi...
