Free Emergency Preparedness lessons series: Several parts (i.e. Lessons 1-6, 9-10) of the 12 part series have been released. Although created originally focusing on natural disasters relative to Nan Province, Thailand, some of the information is general and can be readily adapted to other areas. For example, water is critical in all disaster situations. The information on prepare and replenishing water supplies can be useful in most disaster situations. We hope to complete the remainder of the series in 2012. The completed lessons are available at www.neighborhoodlink.com/RTC-TH_Tech/pages
Free MEWS (Mobile Emergency Weather Station) and weather observations lessons are available at my website. MEWS enables amateur radio operators to make valuable weather observations in disaster areas where there are few or no working weather stations. These weather reports can help relief helicopters to know flight weather conditions in the disaster area. Relief coordinators can use the weather data to understand the situation in the disaster area to better coordinate logistics and supplies for survivors.
You can read about MEWS at the following links:

To access the lessons, visit www.neighorhoodlink.com/org/rtcth, then go to the “Pages & Links” section, and click on “RTC-TH MEWS Lessons".
The lessons are in English. I welcome any help from other amateurs to translate these lessons to other languages.
Thanks for visiting my page. Best wishes to you.
