Triangle of Life - Internet Rumor

Everyone should read this brilliant research on the "TRIANGLE OF LIFE" and pass it on. Boy! Is this ever an eye opener, and directly opposite of what we've been taught over the years! I can remember in school being told to, "duck and cover" or stand in a doorway during an earthquake. This guy's findings are absolutely amazing. I hope we all remember his survival method if we are ever in an earthquake!!! EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP'S ARTICLE ON THE: "TRIANGLE OF LIFE":
My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI), the world's most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake. I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries... I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years. I have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.

Plaquemines Parish LA. for the 5 year anniversary of Katrina

A good time was had by all on the New Orleans trip. The group that went down included Carol and I, three of my staff, Mary and my two sons Austin and Eric. Carol did women's health. Kay played one of the three most overworked hygienists ever. Eric took up his usual post in instrument cleaning. Austin ran the digital x-ray. Karen, Debbie and Debbie's good friend Mary all assisted multiple dentists.
The Remote Area medical group treated hundreds of grateful patients. RAM's equipment and operations were first class compared to any working conditions we have ever had in Haiti or elsewhere. They had 20 chairs all with suction and operative units. It was a treat to be able to fix a few teeth instead of just extracting everything.
