    Great post... 1 small mistake, re: Electrical shock..
    As an electrician I can tell you, its NOT the volts that kill you.. Its the current (amps)
    10,000 V with a current of 1mA would NOT kill you, but 120v with a current of 10mA would fry you thru and thru....

    Great post, especially on the last day of ready.gov/america/npm07 National Preparedness Mother. I do think, however, that the last two are more important BEFORE an emergency then during. During an emergency is not the time to start putting together your emergency kit.
