I will be going into further details, but for now I do want to emphasis the importance of everyone knowing basic medical knowledge. Including Suturing Techniques. First off, right now you should stock up on basic medical supplies which you can pick up at any department store.
In other chapters I have mentioned the importance of establishing a general relationship with your neighbors in your community.
