Top Ten Emergency Items From Nitro-Pak

You know we all see natural and man made disasters on the news everyday. Some of you may have even been caught off guard and been unprepared when disaster has hit your home. Our family lives in the South and after some severe hurricanes passed through our area a few years ago, my wife and I decided we would not get caught without supplies in the house again. You probably would have thought that as an emergency responder, I would have been someone who was always prepared. Well, I always am at work, but on my days off I don't always think about getting things prepared around the house. A guy that works for me at the station told me about which carries all kinds of preparedness supplies.

I think they really have some great stuff. Here is just a sample of their top 10 bestselling items:

1. SPACE Blanket, These are the ORIGINAL, one and only, USA MADE SPACE® Brand blankets (Space Blanket) invented for NASA as external insulation on all space vehicles. Packaged specifically for Nitro-Pak!.
2. Official Freeze-Dried Astronaut Ice Cream is a delightful dessert anytime whether on the trail or outer space exploring truly one of the coolest treats around! Astronaut Neapolitan Ice Cream has been a long-term best seller.
3. Datrex Food Ration Bars are excellent tasting and are ideal for emergency reserves, survival kits, earthquake 72 hour kits, and of course, liferafts. Each multi-layered sealed pouch contains 18 individually wrapped bars which contain 200 calories each. The outer foil package is heat sealed to maintain maximum freshness and ease of dispersing.

6. IOSAT Potassium Iodide -1 Single Pack
7. Milk, Dairy Premium Instant Non-Fat
8. NUWICK 120 Hour Emergency candles are ideal for POWER OUTAGES, CAMPING, HUNTING, RV's, etc. NUWICK candles are the best candles we've ever tested. Standard candles have long been used for emergency backup lighting. Their drawback is that they offer only a single flame, shorter burn time and minimal light.

Emergency's Randolph Mantooth At Fire-Rescue Med

I headed out again this year to Las Vegas for Fire-Rescue Med. I attended last year and found it well worth the trip. I really wanted to go again this year so I made sure I put in my training request early. I recommend EMS Personnel and Narcotics Tampering: Awareness and Prevention, interesting stuff. I saw Randolph Mantooth at the conference last year and am looking forward to seeing him again. Below is a nice interview with the actor by ems1.com about the conference.

I am not super high tech yet so I am working on a blog and pulling pictures from across the web that I really like. The new website I am working on is called firefighterphotos.com.

I thought is was a great name and also found a pretty good looking blog template. Right now I am pulling in photos from across the web that allow sharing (creative commons) and posting them. The only problem is that most of the photo sites do not have any stories that relate to the photos. I would really like to be able to get some great stories to also post. If anyone is looking to share some pictures or looking to get some backlinks for their fire blog or department page, send me a line.
