Ratings and Reviews
Unbound Ties Up Another Great App!
As is the norm for Unbound Medicine, they know exactly what medical personnel and patients need right at their fingertips, and provide it.
The often updated app covers everything one needs in an emergency situation, how to work in that situation, and what protocols should be followed. The RSS feed, of magazine articles concerning everything from EMS to studies on particular disasters and what is learned from their outcomes, is great abstract reading. As we see the Haitian disaster still unfolding, this makes looking at what was learned in past events even easier. More importantly, the app brings forth many relevant areas that tie together when a disaster strikes.
Tools for preparing for and managing disasters

Great app, but waiting for update
Love this app - great collection of resources, though they are a bit outdated. The yellow book one version out of date and the CIA Facebook appears to be VERY out of date.
