  1. This is brilliant. Though, under Line 3, at last I heard (2010), the Convenience Categories and Urgent Surgical have been removed, at least from ISAF standards. “Line 3: (x) B” could mean the difference between getting a life saving MEDEVAC or a HERO flight… I almost got that shirt. Always double check your codes.

  2. I tried and lost comment, will try again. I am an RN. Where I live the disaster training would be woefully inadequate by your standards. We train, but in reality we had the H1N1 (which was an eye opening shock!!!! Since we are very close to where it started and had some of the earliest cases, and first mortality.) We have a big influx of Spring Breakers (drunk/puking/dehydrated) with a big Ambulance bus that spreads the load out (max 21) to four area hospitals. I dread a real disaster. Looks like you have it under control!

  3. It should read “Look Right Not Straight Patients Sucking My Numb Nuts.” I negligently omitted the MY or Marking.
