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.
4. Light Stick, 8 Hour White : On sale now for $1.49
5. Astronaut Space Food PREMIUM Freeze-Dried Ice Cream
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.

Tactile Helmet Could Help Firefighters Find Their Way

A specially-adapted 'tactile helmet', developed by researchers at the University of Sheffield, could provide fire-fighters operating in challenging conditions with vital clues about their surroundings.
The helmet is fitted with a number of ultrasound sensors that are used to detect the distances between the helmet and nearby walls or other obstacles. These signals are transmitted to vibration pads that are attached to the inside of the helmet, touching the wearer's forehead. Rescue workers, such as fire-fighters, who might be working in dark conditions or in buildings filled with smoke, will be able to use the signals to find walls and other obstacles that could help guide them through unfamiliar environments.

It is anticipated that a lightweight version of the technology could also be useful to people with visual impairments, acting as an additional 'sense' to guide users or to help them avoid hazards.
Invented by a team of researchers at the Sheffield Centre for …
