I’m really not afraid of a zombie invasion or a coming world disaster; but I think we should all be prepared for natural disasters and emergencies. We need to have enough supplies put back for our family to take care of our own personal needs in case we have to be self supportive in an emergency situation. It just makes sense. So What’s in your Go-Bag? Here’s a Readiness Bag from EarthEasy and some ideas to make your own!
What’s in Your Go-Bag?
We hear that we need to be prepared, but may not know what to put in an emergency bag. I received the Grab N Go 3 Day Emergency Kit from Earth Easy.
There are basic essentials that should be in every readiness bag. The #1 thing we need to have on hand in an emergency situation is drinking water. I have the LifeStraw in my GoBag, but I also want ready-to-drink water pouches.
Each Kit contains enough emergency supplies to sustain two people for three days. The three basic essentials, as recommended by the American Red Cross, are in every handy backpack. Store it wherever it can be easily accessed in an emergency.
What’s in the Grab N Go Emergency Kit?
2 2400 calorie food bars (5 year shelf life)
12 4.25 oz water pouches (5 year shelf life)
2 emergency blankets
1 first aid kit (33 piece)
2 12-hour safety light sticks
2 dust masks
2 pairs of nitrile gloves
1 emergency whistle
2 emergency ponchos
1 pack of pocket tissues
1 2-person backpack
No matter what you have on hand for an emergency, if you can’t easily access it, it’s worthless. Whether you buy a ready bag like this one from Earth Easy or make your own, just make sure you can grab it quickly in an emergency. This kit allows you to have all your necessities in a simple red backpack so you can pick it up and take it with you if you need to evacuate.
I added my LifeStraw to my Go-Bag. I’m also planning to drop in some water proof matches or a fire starter. This is a small bag, but perfect to store in the closet in case I never need it.
