Exclamation Aids to Survival Guide

Interesting copyright-free word document from the WA Police Force can be downloaded from here (hopefully):
http://canopuscomputing.com.au/galle...b68e81197db357

I haven't read it yet, but seems to contain valuable information.

I will convert this to a tagged PDF file and re-publish at some stage.

Here it is in PDF format http://canopuscomputing.com.au/galle...b68e81197db357

NB: I have just discovered that the WA Police have published an updated edition of this document in PDF format; available here:

www.police.wa.gov.au/Portals/11/PDFs/AidsToSurival_2007.pdf

I intend to approach them for the Word version of this document so that I can convert it into a more useful and usable A5 booklet that will fit in a glove box. Wish me luck ... .

Yeah, looks good doesn't it?

I have converted it to PDF, and then noticed that it is missing page numbers ...

Will re-convert after adding them.

Shows just how easy it is to overlook something very vital! A lesson to us all.

This kind of information is fundamental to the pursuit that most here are actively engaged in.

When I have, it might be a good idea to post it in a new thread.
Make it a "sticky", perhaps?
What do you think?

You read my thoughts as I was thinking the exact same thing
Just let us know when you've finished converting it & I'll do just that

Regards

Will do, mate

Probably sometime tomorrow.

It's just hit 40 here!

I am flitting from A/C to A/C.
Methinks another swim is in order. Even the bloody pool is around 30C last time I checked!

I don't like the heat much. With an artificial heart valve, one's homeostatic mechanisms get all screwed up even at the best of times ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeostasis ). When very hot or very cold, x 2! And that's by no means the full extent of my medical problems.

But hey, I'm still here: So a big thank you to modern medicine and my hospital and medicos .

Yup, missed that bit out, thanks.

Also I would say if you seal all around the plastic sheet it will seal in the moisture & prevent evaporation, increasing yield. Best way is to use sand or soil.
Ditto. Thanks again.

Exclamation WA Police Survival Guide in PDF format

Gidday Folks

Here it is, the WA Police Survival Guide in PDF format with a couple of minor formatting errors corrected and converted to Adobe PDF format.

http://canopuscomputing.com.au/galle...b68e81197db357

Please send me a pm if you cannot download this file, or read it.

It is copyright free, so feel free to redistribute it.
It could save your own life, or that of a total stranger ...

Hope this is useful to people here. I have had a fairly quick browse through it, and it seems positively jam-packed with useful, practical information.

Glad to hear it mate. Its amazing the advances medicine has made in the last few decades & I have no doubt the future will leave us astonished
