that awaits you: a food crisis

This could be the devastating disaster scenario that awaits you: a food crisis like no other, with dozens of millions of people begging for a loaf of bread... and you having to reject life-long friends asking for help... looking your kid in the eye, telling him to eat less... lying awake at night, counting the days until you’ll be forced to put your life at risk and go outside, looking for something to feed them.
Here’s the thing: no matter which disaster strikes... whether it’s an EMP, Martial Law or an economic collapse, you need food in order to survive. And plenty of it. Looking back in history at what happened after some of the biggest events humanity had to face, they all lasted YEARS before things went back to some sort of normal.

Maple will produce twice as much heat as pine

Pieces of cardboard soaked in candle wax work well, even when wet.
 Dried peat moss  can be used for insulation to turn a light jacket into a warm coat. Just stuff the jacket full without removing it. It can also be used as mattress material or toilet paper. Sleeping bags should not be stored in stuff sacks. This constant compression will eventually crush the insulation, making for less loft and therefore less warmth. Store bags unpacked on a shelf or in a large cloth bag. Cotton balls and materials like that make great fire starters.

How to create an Emergency Action Plan EAP

An emergency action plan should be implemented at all athletic events, as well as in office buildings.  An emergency action plan is a well-developed, organized plan of what will happen in the event of certain emergencies.
 Emergency action plans can vary in size and information.  Hang on by each phone that lists the name, address, and phone numbers of the specific location.  Local numbers to the police, fire, hospitals, and poison control should be included.  Add 911 to the list.  Numbers to fellow athletic trainers, team physicians, and other medical personnel can be listed as well.  Put the numbers in order of chain of command.  In emergent situations it is best to lay everything out clearly since things can get hectic.

Cotton is not a good insulator in very cold conditions

 You need to protect yourself from extreme cold and wind. If you are going to spend the day out in the cold you need to eat plenty of carbohydrates. You need to wear several light layers of clothing. The fabrics should allow your skin to breath. Cotton is not a good insulator in very cold conditions. Your outer garments should be made of Gore-Tex type materials they will protect you from the wind. Wear a ski mask, neck warmer or hood will protect your face from frost bite.
  You should avoid drinking alcohol it can worsen hypothermia. Take high protein snacks to eat. Make sure to breath through your nose rather then your mouth this will reduce heat and fluid loss. If you get wet change as soon as possible,wet clothes can bring on hypothermia. Keep your back to the wind and move your fingers and toes to keep the blood flowing. Your biggest heat loss is from your head and feet so keep the warm. Keep your chest warm this will help your heart beat and keep the blood flowing to your extremities.
   To check yourself for frost bite which is a soft tissue injury. Look to see if the effected area appears red then white and the skin is soft to the touch. There are 3 degrees of frostbite.
