Rinse Lather Repeat!


Published on

During my service with NDMS in Katrina, I began developing a program to help restore individual self-reliance in America’s citizens. The program is called “Rinse, Lather, Repeat”. As you know the three decade old Stop, Drop and Roll program taught to kindergarten students has resulted in more children saving the lives of parents than parents saving the lives of children in household fires. Moreover, after three decades, the children of yesterday are the parents and even grandparents of today, thus two and three generations have now learned the lessons of Stop, Drop and Roll.

Rinse, Lather, Repeat seeks to do the same for all hazards, not just fire. With Rinse, Lather, Repeat you can survive anything, anywhere, every time!
