Today I offer part 1 of a 3-month medical prepping guide for your family, group, or community.
Please note the following abbreviations:
ORG = organizational concerns
OTC = over-the-counter products
Rx = prescription products
ED = education and skills
The supplies listed under OTC can all be purchased without a prescription, though some are only available online. For prescription items, assess what your group has and what each member is likely to be able to acquire.
The three-month period is divided into 13 weekly tasks, divided according to topic, making the project more readily manageable.

Identify each member of your group and begin a medical chart or notebook to include each individual
· Identify current and probably future medical needs of each member, including reproductive concerns
WOUND CARE and MEDICATIONS DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN IN QUANTITY
Begin purchasing items with a long shelf life:
· Dressings, gauze, Band-Aids, Telfa pads, medical tape, Coban, Ace wraps,
Begin acquiring medications that cannot be purchased in bulk, and continue purchasing these as desired throughout your preparation period
· “Real” Sudafed (pseudoephedrine – requires signature; can only be purchased in small amounts)
Medication-dependent persons should assess their long-term needs and make a list of needed long-term prescription refills to request from their physician. This is best done in person, per Week 2, below.
· Diabetics should also request testing strips, lancets, needles, and other supplies from their physicians.
· Obtain or create forms for medical record keeping
