Here is why we should all keep at least one Trauma dressing on our EDC bags / packs especially in urban centers.
“Unsurprisingly, people are relocating within the US in order to find more climate-resilient places to live. ” By pure coincidence I had a lovely Zoom call with my late friends family in Kansas not an hour ago.
