How Many Disasters are You Prepping For?

Disasters, Floods, Fires and Herbal Medicine!

Flood DisasterDisasters, Floods, Fires, a good reason to be prepared. On this broadcast of Survival Medicine with Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy these topics as well as wound care and the Jersey Shore boardwalk fire will be discussed.

Most of us have experienced or have witnessed a disaster type flood at one time or another. Anytime land which is normally dry is submerged in an overflow of water it would be considered a flood situation. This can occur due to the overflow of a body of water such as a lake, river, melting snow, levee overflows, etc. Flooding can also be contributed to excessive rain and saturated ground. While many floods occur in nature all the time there are those floods that can hit close to home and cause major damage and loss of life.

Disaster Flash FloodSome floods can develop slowly and give some notice to what is coming but there is another called the “flash flood” a disaster that can develop in a very short time and affect areas where there has not even been any precipitation.  As a result, this type of disaster often catches the populated areas by surprise, causing severe damage and loss of life.

They discuss specific medical issues and which herbs would be useful, plus a lot more awesome Herbal Medicine information. Growing your own medicinal garden is both rewarding and beneficial; in times of trouble, you will likely have limited access to pharmaceuticals. The learning curve when gardening can be steep, so don’t delay planting those medicinal seeds until the situation is critical.

Natural to man-made disasters

This Friday on “In Time of disaster” we will continue the discussion of last week as we move from natural to man-made disasters such as a refinery fire, floods or in the case of the nuclear power plant in Japan and all other types of disasters that are caused in part or in whole by man or our inventions that affect the lives of hundreds to thousands when everything goes wrong.

In the second half we will discuss what supplies you should have in your home and vehicle if a disaster were to strike. Do you have a Bug-out bag? If so, does it contain everything you will need to survive for 3 days or longer? We will look at what FEMA says we should have, and what do you really need to survive any disaster that might affect you and your family. Listen to this show in player below.
