Just to get it all of my chest. I am a member of the Mexican Red Cross. I stayed at the home, post earthquake, of the Secretary General of the Costa Rican Red Cross. Some Red Cross’s are wonderful and filled with great people. I love them.
Let me tell you this: Years ago, The Canadian Red Cross refused to pay $250,000 to test, their blood, for AIDS. Their business sold most of the blood available, to Hospitals, in Canada. Their Director said that it was too much money..to waste. 8,000 …EIGHT THOUSAND…. people, later died from the tainted blood
The Director and CRC were charged in court. After legal battles, for years, The decison was ‘handed down’. The Red Cross were prohibited, from collecting, distributing or selling blood ever again. Nobody went to jail..and the Canadian Red Cross received a fine of $1.00. Yes ONE DOLLAR.
Two years ago, the local CRC representative, told me himself. He laughed, in my face, and told me about the couert decison: He said: “NO PROBLEM. We are ging to make a ton of money. We are going into the disaster business! LIKE THE AMERICAN RED CROSS!We will get rich! ”
He told me this because he had organized a little ‘hate session’ for me because of the ‘triangle of life’ and wanted to rub it in. I ‘bit my lipo’ and refrained from punching the bastard, in the face.
It even gets worse….a few months ago, he sent me an email asking me if I would train him, for disasters. He said: ” I hope their are ‘no hard feelings’
Instead of ‘blowing my top’, I calmly replied that he could start by getting the Red Cross to stop promoting ‘Duck and Cover’. ..that this change to the ‘triangle of life’ would save 200,000 lives per year.
The bastard never wrote back! Pisses me off..’to no end’..just to think about it.

Thank you for sharing this Doug. You have been through a lot in your life, that’s for sure. I too have up close experience with emphazema, another terrible lung disease that is often caused by smoking. My father died from it. It is like drowning, can’t catch a precious breath of air.
Your experience and wise warning will be for the betterment of us all during the event and after times.

Comment Dear Cheryl: To be honest. I have calmed down but there was a point when I was so mad at the American Red Cross that I was ‘fit to be tied’!

Thank you all for your kind words. Cheryl amkes an excellent point. I suggested, in a previous comment regarding ‘Joplin’ that people should carry kerchiefs to wet and place around the neck veins, to cool the head. Cheryl made ahuge improvement on that concept, by adding a safety pin and a bottle of water so that it could serve an additional purpose of filtering out dust.
FYI. My lungs are totallly trashed. I did have a repirator at 911; however, it got quickly clogged and became useless. There were no more to be had..I made the decision to go back under the rubble and take my chances.
Within a day I started coughing up black soot, blood started coming out of my lungs and nose, I became soaked in sweat with fever and I passed out unconscious. For several years I could not walk farther than 3 ft without hyperventilating for air.
A year later I was told by the President of 3M Corporation, that they had donated $750,000 worth of respirators, to the American Red Cross. ARC had kept them in their wharehouse, for later sale. this is the MAIN reason why thousands of 911 first responders have died or are dieing from respiratory disease.
This is one of dozens of ARC ‘crimes’, including opposing the ‘triangle of life’ to show their support for the vested financial interests who profit from ‘dick and cover’ having a 98% death rate.

Minimum for your bug-out bag is a kerchief, large safety pin, and a bottle of water. Wet the kerchief and fold it diagonally. Then pin it in the back. The wet kerchief will help filter debris in the air. It won’t just be building materials, but also dust and all kinds of other debris in the air.
Yes, Doug, thank you for your service to humanity. You are appreciated.

Comment That was a good idea Doug to post this blog. Too often we tend to forget that older building affected by earthquakes or fire may contain Asbestos. There is no real policy of the presence of Asbestos inside building especially in developing countries. A lot of workers in poor country are exposed and their employers are not willing to provide PPEs.
