I have been working a lot lately on helping folks understand some fundamentals for emergency preparedness like knowing what alerts mean and how to get them, making a fire escape plan, and what to do if an emergency comes your way. My goal in all of this is to help people be ready before they have to be!
With all the effort to help others, the one thing I really want to share is something I think every individual should have ready at all times so they have the ability to grab one thing and have what they need to survive. I have one that I have built and use on occasions to stay in practice and make sure my supplies are still good. This is what I call my Go Bag.
I have put together a pretty extensive guide for you to grab for free, read, follow, and get what you need to build yours and have it ready before you have to be.
If you prefer, you can check out the video I have put together for this topic right here. IF you know someone who would like this stuff, please share! You can use the floating icons for the social media of your choice to share on your page or click the share button on the YouTube video. Help me help others be ready before they have to be!
Go Bag Guide
As I mentioned above, this guide is great if you don’t have anything ready! Even if you do, the way it is laid out will help you identify what you need and why. It puts it in a good format that is easy to understand and helps group things up so you can store them in a manner that makes things accessible and easy to remember.
This guide is not just for people who are preparing for emergencies either. If you are the outdoors type or want to become one who does a bit of exploring in the wilderness. If you have this bag set up the way I explain it you would have everything you need to survive. Granted, for camping, you have control of your situation so you may want to add more to increase the comfort level and take it a bit further than just keeping yourself alive. But imagine, you were out camping and having a good time and an unfortunate event happens and someone is hurt or lost. If you have your bag set up like this, you would have what you need to help and survive until you can get in touch with rescuers.
Things To Consider
It is a pretty simple list that I provide but if you dig into the 17 pages full of information it will help you understand what and why to consider these items in this way. Just to give you a quick highlight of what I am referring to here is what is covered in the descriptions.
- The bag.
Each one of these topics is covered and links are provided to get the items I suggest. That way you can go through step by step at your own pace and get this together at your convenience. I have used and tested everything I suggest to make sure you don’t end up with things that are cheaply made and leave you stranded when you need it the most.
There are items I cover that I do not link to because personal preferences and costs are so extremely different from one person to the next. I have mentioned some items that you can get on your own like pencil and paper just because you probably already have some and just need to throw it in your go bag.
I always enjoy going over this stuff because some of the tools are just cool. Here are a couple of teasers that you can find in the guide you can get for free right here.
There are a few things in this list I have on me all the time. Whether I am at work or at home, I carry a flashlight, a knife, and a way to start a fire everywhere I go. I know, kind of weird but I do live ready! You can click the pictures or links if you want to go ahead and start now. As an Amazon associate, I will make a small commission at no extra cost to you and it helps me continue to help others be ready before they have to be!
