Your emergency bag isn’t the place to cut corners and rely on cheap knock-offs or incomplete kits.
During a disaster, your emergency survival kit can mean the difference between comfort and discomfort, between having a plan and being disoriented, and, in some cases, between life and death itself.
You might think you'll have to light candles for light during an emergency, but storing matches in your emergency survival kit is potentially dangerous. Most disasters are caused by nature, and although there's the small chance that a huge disaster could cause riots, don't include weapons in your emergency survival kit. When you're panicked and rummaging through your emergency kit, you could hurt yourself with the weapons.
While you'll want items such as food, water, blankets, flashlights, and medical supplies in your kit, too much stuff can make your kit unwieldy and difficult to access or carry during an emergency.


I’m talking about a “Bug-Out Bag,” a ready-to-grab-at-anytime kit that gets you out the door and long gone, quickly and safely, when things go south.
Even though you probably aren’t going to have a foreign hit squad on your trail, or Federal agents ready to kick in your door, there are still a number of situations where the Average Joe needs to have a bug-out bag — or a “Get Home Bag” (see below) — packed and ready to go. So I spoke with Creek Stewart, survival skills trainer, owner of Willow Haven Outdoor, and author of the upcoming book, Build the Perfect Bug-Out Bag: Your 72 Hour Disaster Survival Kit (May 12, Betterway Books), to find out what those situations are, and what we city-dwellers need to have to create an Urban Survival Bug-Out bag that’ll keep us from resorting to “Lord of the Flies”… for 3 or 4 days at least. If you’re forced out of your home and need to survive on your own for at least 72 hours, Stewart says to remember the Core 4 Basic Human Survival Needs: Shelter, Water, Fire and Food – and to make sure your bag covers them all. Stewart says to keep in mind the first bug-out bag you grab may actually be a “Get Home Bag” — providing you the essentials you need to get out of a stricken city and home to your family. Mass chaos and exodus would make getting from work to home very complicated, and a disaster-stricken city is a very dangerous place. So, just as military pilots have a “get-home survival kit” packed in their cock-pit, Stewart recommends having a “Get Home Bag” ready to go at your office or in your car.


A Get Home Bag is simply a down-sized version of the Bug-Out Bag designed to do just that – get you home safely. It will be smaller and have fewer supplies — just the necessities to get you through and out of ground zero. This bag contains the best products from quality name-brands--the outdoor industry has to offer. Rioting, Looting, Armed Violence: Desperation and lack of order bring out the worst in some people.
