if you don't have a weather radio, you REALLY
should buy one.

How cool is that!!
Anyone 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.
