I am reading a fascinating book, "The Checklist Manifesto," written by a surgeon. The author shows (well supported by data) how checklists are tremendously helpful in saving lives in hospitals. Simple checklists, of procedures that doctors and nurses already know by heart, are used to make certain procedures are completed the way they should be. Some surgeons hate them because they're "insulting to the intelligence" and take time to go through. But the research shows they save lives--lots of lives--because it's common for surgeons to inadvertently skip a step here or there. (Even surgeons are human, it appears.) Then the author explains the birth of the pre-flight checklist, instituted after an early Flying Fortress crash. Previous to that, a pilot would no more have thought of consulting a list, than an auto driver would think of consulting a list before pulling out of a driveway. Now, the airline industry is run on lists of procedures. What happens when the pilot hears a big "bang" at 30K feet? First thing he does is pull out a checklist. Now, how about us preppers. Has anyone looked at prepping from the point of view of checklists? I know they're implied a lot, but does anyone know of a set of procedural checklists that exist, for SHTF situations? If so, can you share? It would be nice to have a collection of prep-oriented or emergency-action checklists referenced in one thread. Not just "stuff to have" like a BOB gear list, but also "things to do," and in what order.
