serious about Emergency Support should have a
go-kit, or maybe more than one. It may be
something you keep in the car or something
mostly packed and ready to go at home. Even if
you don't have one, you should think about what
you might need to have in case of an emergency.
This is a presentation that
Dan O’Connor, KE7HLR made at EMCOMMWEST in 2008.
It's a rather large PDF file (about 3Meg). If
you don't have a high speed connection, I
suggest downloading it, and reading it off line.
It's great 'food for thought' and well worth the
read. I found myself mentally comparing Dan's
ideas to what I have assembled and thinking
about what I might want to add.
