2013-11-04 12:38:30 - The Go Bag, for emergency preparedness, is designed to be grabbed at a moments notice to aid in the event of an evacuation. The Go Bag is filled with the survival supplies you'll need for up to 72 hours. It can be kept at home, in your office or in your car.
The Go-Bag is a portable emergency kit that contains items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours when evacuating from a disaster. The focus is on evacuation, rather than long-term survival, distinguishing the bug-out bag from a survival kit, a car, boating or aviation emergency kit, or a fixed-site emergency preparedness or disaster supplies kit.
The primary purpose of the Go-Bag bag is to allow for a quick evacuation in case of an emergency. It is therefore prudent to gather all of the materials and supplies that might be required to do this into a single place, such as a back pack. It is recommended that the Go-Bag should contain enough supplies for seventy-two hours. This is according to
organizations responsible for disaster relief and management that suggest it may take them up to seventy-two hours to reach people affected by a disaster and offer help.
The Go-Bag’s contents may vary according to the region of the user, as someone evacuating from the path of a hurricane may have different supplies from someone who lives in an area prone to tornadoes or wildfires. In addition to allowing one to survive a disaster evacuation, a Go-Bag may also be used when sheltering in place as a response to emergencies such as house fires, blackouts, tornadoes, and other severe natural disasters although a more fully stocked Emergency Preparedness or Disaster Kit is recommended in case of a major incident.
Ready made and fully customizable Go-Bag 72 hour Emergency Kit is available from evaQ8.co.uk. More information on the website.
