Family first aid skills kicked in and he got a trip up to A&E for a full set of tests and was thankfully discharged this morning with a broken nose, black eyes and standard head injury advice. The fail was the non-...

Re: How many times can you use a disposable FFP3 mask?

This is an old thread! But still relevant. I mentioned on here about buying some N95 masks - went on to Amazon just now, and I find they're actually FFP2. Mentioned it all to my sister this morning - she already has 40 x N95 masks. I'm not the only prepper in the family :lol: I'll get some of those...

Self contained battery alarms are good for sheds if you don't have a mains supply... Not catastrophic loud but enough to put many off... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Defender-Wireless-Shed-Alarm-Burglar/dp/B019CNLT2S/ref=asc_df_B019CNLT2S/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=255672231529&hvpos=&hvnet...

Re: Prepping Disasters & Epic Failures?

The one good use for wind up lanterns/torches is for kids torches. I hated wasting batteries on them when they thought the torch was a toy.
