‘mags’ Author Charley Hogwood Discusses New Preparedness Book [interview]

Tunstall Americas Partners With Numera On Distribution Of Mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS)

Charleys long list of career achievements combine the worlds of survival and public emergency response in a unique way. Whether you want to learn about disaster and response, primitive wilderness survival, advanced urban survival or wish to completely leave the grid, we have the skills you need. Charley describes his unique book and the in-depth approach like this: By employing the hard learned lessons carefully researched from active groups, and applying sociology, history, law and threat analysis, the survivor will understand what to look for in a group, how to build one from scratch, how to fix one that has become dysfunctional and where to put it in a hurry. What are mutual assistance groups? Charley: A mutual assistance group is a group of similarly minded individuals who pledge to assist each other in times of crisis. A group could be a family, a small group of friends or an entire community. Why do you feel a significant number of preppers shy away from forming or joining mutual assistance groups? Charley: The most common fears we hear about have to do with trust and personal security. People worry that someone will turn on them and take their supplies, or shun them as crazy. While this is always a concern, the methods we outline in our book MAGS are specifically designed to mitigate these valid worries.

MobileHelp® Announces New DUO Mobile-Personal Emergency Response System (M-PERS)

The new unit features an increase in transmitter coverage up to 1,000 feet with CSTs long-range transmitters and adds a level of flexibility for users. The Bob 4200 console, like the other CST Bob console products, is designed for use with traditional analog and VOIP telephone lines including all Bob accessories like smoke and CO2 detection and door/window contacts. The Bob 4200 comes with a newly designed long-range pendant that has wear appeal. In addition to this sleek, modern new look, the Bob 4200 includes a level of future proofing built into it that was not previously available to subscribers. With a 3G cellular module to be available by fall of 2012, CST is able to provide customers with the peace of mind that should they turn off their analog home phones, they still will be able to keep their Bob monitoring system running without any stoppage or having to switch out the console with which they have become familiar. Additionally, with a wireless speaker/microphone unit available later in 2012, both larger homes, and a wider area of coverage can be facilitated without running wires or sacrificing aesthetics of where the base station console is placed. The consoles key features include: * Up to 1,000 feet of transmitter coverage, using CSTs long range transmitters * English or Spanish selectable in software * Upgradeable firmware permits future flash of firmware for enhancements, feature updates * Illuminated Help button backlit and easier to see at night * Pre-recorded alert messages loaded into console for scheduled events (medicine, appointments, system testing, activity and motion) CST, founded in 2006 by security and medical monitoring expert Jeffery S.
