What To Pack In A Bug Out Bag
Prepare For The Worst
One never knows what to expect when preparing to "bug out" of a situation. There are many people today in 2015 who are getting prepared to bug out for whatever there is to come. Some of the beliefs of others are as follows:
- Yellow Stone Eruption
- Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack
- Changes In Weather
- Military Takeover (Martial Law)
- Invasion From an Outside Country
- Nuclear Attack
- Chemical Weapons Attack
No matter what it is people are preparing for, they are preparing and it is always a good idea to be ahead of the game in any of the above situations.
Emergency Food Rations
Top 10 Essentials To Pack
Every prepper is going to want to pack his/her own bug out bag differently plus or minus items listed, depending on what situation best suits them. Here are the top 10 items almost every prepper should have in their own bug out bag:
- Fire starter/Lighter/Wind & or Waterproof matches
- Small Pot
- Alcohol Stove
- Weapon such as a firearm/bow or even resources to make one.(Firearm includes Ammo, ammo is heavy.)
- Water purification tablets
- First Aid Kit
- Clean dry pair of socks,thermals to help keep warm and dry.
- Rope (Preferably 550 cord because it can be used for multiple different things.)
- Food, such as Emergency Food Ration Bars which include a lot of calories.
There are many other things that can be put into a bug out bag, but one must remember that the more contents put into the bag, the heavier it is going to be to transport. Some believe that less is more, others would prefer to have a few of the nicer extras such as the alcohol stove to cook with and heat the tent at night, that is if a tent is something your bugging out with.
Bug Out Plan?
Even though there are items that were not listed does not mean they are not needed in a bug out bag. If you know what it is you are planning to bug out for, than you can plan and pack accordingly.
Most people who prep for such things not only have a bug out bag, but they have a bug out plan. Meaning, they have a place already picked out, that they feel is safe to hide away for a little while.
They also practice their bug out procedure every once in a while, just to make sure that everyone in the household knows what to grab, what the code word is, and how fast to be ready to get in the car or hit the road in a moments notice.
I guess the important thing to remember in this whole thing is to be prepared. Know matter what the situation is, keeping your own family safe is the most important no matter the cost.
