Don't know whaere you are mate but in england its all over the papers that our govt is ill prepared for bird flu even though its in france now they are considering forcing all poultry stocks indoors but despite advice from scientists say theyy wiil only take this step once we have confirmed cases.

And one of our biggest pharmacy chains boots is starting to train its staff on recognising symptoms etc.

Theres also calls for bans on french eggs birds etc.

Note the department of govt that handles theese things does't exactly fill me with confidence think BSE , foot and mouth etc

what made me laugh was hearing on the radio that the forcing of all poultry stocks indoors as soon as farmers report cases.. yeah, like a farmer is likely to report that his livestock need to be exterminated and lose profit.

Just running down the items I might want to have on hand in case of any emergency that will disrupt society as we know it. I have been packing away a few extras for months now for anything that might come along, I am not talking about spending thousands or even hundreds just a few dollars here and there.

Toilet paper
Seeds for planting
advanced first aid kit that has items for minor surgery and stitching
shortwave radio preferably the wind up models

I haven't spent a ton of money on stocking of items but am prepared in the event I have to be quarantined to my home for a spell. I stock up at a place called Costco. For those that don't know what that is it's a whole sale grocery store, with other items as well. You can buy bulk items for a whole sale price so you save a ton and get huge amounts of food.
I have also gathered some LED lamps and a ton of batteries.

For medicine I have

Collodial Silver
Multi Vitamins
masks and latex gloves (so I don't have to touch door handles after someone who could be infected)
and extra zinc

Some things I stress to people:

Bulk vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid USP)
Water purification systems w/replacement parts
Water containers
Repair kit for generator (obviously a generator...)

***I should stress that one thing that many people forget is future maintenance and repair of hardware that they have, ie water filters, generators, propane stoves, vehicles, ATVs, furnaces, air filter systems, etc.

A wise person will back up their purchases with repair parts for same.

Hm, hey I'm gonna die. In the USA we are basically using the technique "let's close our eyes and pretend it doesn't exist."

My husband's technique is to buy a huge bag of bird seed, and feed the birds in our back yard.
