September is National Preparedness Month, so I didn't want the month to pass without sharing what I learned about making a Go Bag. I kinda went crazy recently with researching and purchasing items for emergency kits for the family. Make Go Bags for your kids so that you are prepared for an evacuation in the case of an emergency.
The purpose of a Go Bag is to provide the bare necessities for a certain amount of time, typically 72-hours. I was able to find five in the same green and had a sixth similarly colored bag at home to use for my littlest one. Go Bags for kids are mostly to provide them with comfort and provisions for a short amount of time.
If a child is even 4 years old they can assemble their own to go bag and the to go bag can be for everyday outings as well so that it is used all the time. Victoria Nilsson, a coordinator for New York City Civic Corps at the Office of Emergency Management, talked about the practicalities of disaster preparedness.
Due to the expense and weight of 3-day supplies, I decided to prepare a 24-kit for their Go Bags. But, as new items come in for birthdays and Christmas, I’ll stash the old ones in the Go Bags. Children need to learn to be responsible for themselves if true emergency does ever happen the more you have taught them the better chance they have to survive. As I am preparing a 3-day family emergency kit separately, I figure this is sufficient in the instance where we need to leave the house quickly and there might be a chance of us splitting the family up for transport or some other reason. I printed each form, folded it in quarters and placed it in a snack bag to protect it from water. I stopped at the dollar section of Target and got playing cards or puzzles to include in each bag. That said, during tornado season, I gathered all of the necessary supplies to keep us safe in one area so when it got bad there was no searching around for a flashlight or the emergency radio. Cal State San Marcos has established procedures for you to follow so that the effects of emergency situations can be minimized.
This survival kit was designed using advice from experts in the emergency preparedness industry.

Know where you will go if you have to leave your home in an emergency—make your plan ahead of time! I love the clothes pin idea and will be adding that to our bags… I know you mentioned cash, but I specifically keep a roll of quarters in my bag.
Items that may help you in the event of an emergency such as a small flashlight, a pocketknife or multi tool. In the event of an emergency or disaster you can grab this and take off without wasting valuable time searching for and packing items you might need. I was ready for anything coming my way because I had an hurricane emergency preparedness Go Bag. A Grab and Go Bag {or backpack} is what you quickly grab in the event of an emergency that forced you to quickly leave your home – house fire, natural disaster, etc. After Lauren wrote about her kids’ emergency bags, I started buying some of the supplies to put together Go Bags for my kids. The situation where my kids might need these bags would be an emergency where we must evacuate quickly.
Toiletries: I used a quart size bag to hold toothbrush, toothpaste, antibacterial wipes, kleenex, bandaids, and a few light sticks. My kids are counting the days until they can break into the bags as granola bars are something I rarely buy. In true emergency you may get separated from them very easily and even as young as four can have skills to find ways to make due until you are able to unite once again.
The purpose of a get home bag is to help you survive an emergency or disaster just until you can get home and get to your other survival supplies.
Grab and Go Bags for Emergencies You can read all of the Family Emergency Preparedness articles here. A survival kit is any container of supplies that help you survive any emergency situation you may be in. Make sure you sit down with your kids and go over your Emergency Family Plan and where the kits will be stowed. Homeland Survival provides news and information on survival, emergency preparedness, bug out bags, everyday carry, bugout shelters, self sufficiency, survival preps and survival gear.
I’m going to be watching for sales on this kind of thing so I can make their emergency supplies a little more substantial.

All the advice is good but also have a bugout bag with food and some survival gear in case your home is no longer suitable for living. She travels to all five boroughs to train people for emergencies, doing one session per day.
Many cell phone towers did not work, I think an emergency two way radio is a good choice just to have around. Bug out bags are usually carried in a backpack but can also include duffle bags and plastic tote bins. 1.trash bags, at least the 30 gal size to be used for rain coats with a quick cut for head and arms, also can be used to put things that cannot get wet, like food or clothing while crossing streams or rivers etc.
Disaster Preparedness Emergency Kits & Supplies offered by WPI Service Supplies are easy to take with you in case of emergency. In the event of an emergency or disaster you would have enough food to last you several weeks to several months without having to go to the grocery store.
Some of these (sweatshirts, shoes) are things that we use all the time, so I don’t want them tied up in a bag.
By taking some time now to store emergency food and water supplies, you can provide for your entire family. The point of these bags is to have them at the ready at a moment’s notice, so they need to be stored close to your path out the door.
This bag's main purpose is as a Get Home Bag, in other words, a bag to get me to my truck, or to home, where I have additional resources.
Our major threat is a hurricane, and we keep our supplies stocked because we rarely evacuate, but I think bags for the kids are a good idea in the event that we are surprised by flooding or another event. My children have identical bags that they picked up for free at a carnival, so that is also a cost saving option.
