What is in your Bug Out Bag ? If you had to leave your home at a moment’s notice would you have a backpack full of items to keep you warm, feed you, tend your wounds, water to drink, tools to lead your way and ways to communicate ?
Not every emergency or natural disaster happens when you are well rested, with your family all together at home.
You could be at work …. some people keep a smaller version of their Bug Out Bag … called a Everyday Carry Bag in their car or with them on a daily basis.
I encourage women who wear high heels to work, school or just out and about – please keep a pair of flat soled shoes in your car or workplace just in case you need to run or walk long distances in a disaster.
