  1. Check out The Activity Group for CBRNE workshops and supplies.

    Instructors are muddy-boots combat-medics Special Forces. Approved by MountainGuerrilla John Mosby.

  2. We are more likely to catch a bug than a bullet, but if you do, you will need antibiotics. Highly recommend Alton’s Antibiotics and Infectious Diseases by Joesph Alton, M.D.
    No doubt the easiest for the layman to read, clear illustrations that can guild anyone through the process of diagnosis, and the safe use of veterinarian antibiotics during austere times, antibiotics available without prescription at Fishfloxfishmox.com as recommended by Dr. Alton. I got the signed copy by purchasing the book from the website survivalmedicine.com. If one has antibiotics, this is a must have as it makes your stockpile of antibiotics one of the most useful tools in your med kit. This book is a quantum leap over Where There Is No Doctor as it does not have this information. Yes, other professional reference manuals could be used in conjunction to Alton’s book if one is comfortable with scientific and medical language. Alton’s Antibiotics clearly lays out the protocol for the antibiotic whereas professional manuals such as the PDR (Phyiscian’s Desk Reference, or the Merck manual often omit. Alton’s manual also anticipates the flood of diseases from illegal immigrants crashing through our boarder, a topic and threat not yet address to a high degree elsewhere and what antibiotic might be useful to mitigate that threat. If one has invested several hundred per person in antibiotics, getting a $30.00 book that tells you how to use them is a ‘no brainer’. It also tells you which antibiotics to purchase in the first place.

    I would also recommend Alton’s other important 600+ page book that is next on my list: The Survival Medicine Handbook. https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiu3_fd89PiAhWGoOwKHZgiDdkYABAHGgJwag&sig=AOD64_2dNuQ_SIiBIqa9JFN5IvERTi_QHA&ctype=5&q=&ved=0ahUKEwiSjPDd89PiAhVStZ4KHVaiCXsQ9aACCDw&adurl=

    Although not a publication, one can listen for free to hundreds of hours of instruction on the topic of survival medicine to Dr. Alton and his wife an Advanced Registrared Nurse, Amy Alton on their Survival Medicine Hour on Blogtalk Radio. I am a big fan!
