Some of the best sources that I have found are the ones that explain things in a format that makes things easy to understand. One of the best sources I have found is the Red Cross web site. I know, sounds like a shameless plug. The Red Cross website has all sorts of useful information. They have also been doing this sort of stuff for a long time. During an emergency it is easier to remember things that were simple to follow in the first place.
A few other places that I have found that have some very good information are the city library and the state websites. The library has a lot of information, you just need to sort through most of it. You will find varying opinions on what the different authors find as “important information”. The state websites I have found, have some of the best advise. This information is usually gathered from the best minds in the business.
Another source of useful information are some of the dedicated survival and preparedness websites, such as In Case of Emergency, Read Blog. Some of these have information that should be taken with a grain of salt, but most have some type of helpful information that you can use in the education process. Remember that each family or persons plan is different and we all have different needs. Adjust your plan to fit your specific needs. You can have all the equipment in the world and still not know how to best use what you have.
