Want to Know Why Healthcare Workers are Becoming Infected with Ebola?

Infection control is not fun. Having to wear a hazard suit and/or gown, mask, gloves, goggles, hood, and boots/booties is very hot and uncomfortable. Try wearing an N95 mask for 8 hours and see how well you fare. People will cut corners any chance they get to increase their comfort. If you don’t decontaminate properly, infection is likely. Simply put: lack of proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection control is why healthcare workers are getting infected. When you don’t protect 100% of your body from infected patients, the odds of you contracting the disease increases dramatically. You must consider … Continue reading

FREE Radioactive Hot Particle Testing of Auto and Home Air Filters

During my interview with Steve Aukstakalnis of AlertsUSA Inc., we forgot to mention this great service that he sponsors: With the ongoing Fukushima disaster in Japan, failing waste storage tanks at Hanford, and faltering nuclear power facilities across the country, the recent release of radioactive materials into the air at the DOE Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, NM is again heightening concerns about possible health risks to the general public, and rightfully so. Are there radioactive ‘hot particles’ floating around in the air in your local area that could be breathed in? What about inside of your home? The … Continue reading

Recommended Reading: Pass the SHIELD Act Now, Before It’s Too Late

Published on Breitbart Feed // visit site On June 18, the Congressional EMP Caucus held a public event to launch the SHIELD Act, which would protect the national electric grid from a natural or manmade electromagnetic pulse (EMP).

An EMP catastrophe would blackout the national electric grid for months or years, stopping the operation of all the critical infrastructures–communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water–that sustain modern society and the lives of the American people.

Safe Rooms and CBR Threat Protection

Came across a good PDF from FEMA that outlines the different classifications of safe rooms and how to make one in your home for protection against chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) threats. This is a single chapter from a larger document, and begins: “A CBR safe room protects its occupants from contaminated air outside it by providing clean, breathable air in two ways: (1) by trapping air inside the room and minimizing the air exchange (an unventilated safe room) and (2) by passing contaminated air through a filter to purify it as it is supplied to the room (a ventilated … Continue reading

EMP Preparedness

EMP, or Electromagnetic Pulse, is one of the threats that we face from anyone who has a nuclear bomb and can lob it high enough into the air.

This article is about how you can protect your equipment from EMP.  For more information about EMP and the associated dangers, please see this post: What is EMP?  You can also listen to the EMP and EMP podcast for a complete … Continue reading
