Survival Go-Bag

In the event of an emergency
you must be prepared to move
quickly with very little notice.

When a major disaster strikes,
services such as running
water, electricity, and gas
cease to be.

You and your family must
be self sufficient for at least
three days.

Every person in the household
will need a survival bag.

The survival bag is filled with
necessary items that you can
take with you in the event
of an emergency.

These items are to keep your
family self-sufficient when
all services are cut off.

If a quick evacuation is necessary,
emergency items need to be
packed and ready to go.

Each bag should contain some
clothing, underwear, socks,
jacket, a lightweight blanket
and personal items.

When it is time to evacuate each
person grabs his bag or backpack
and gets out.

Store these go bags, in an easily
accessible location.

Wheeled luggage, suit cases,
duffel bags, makes an excellent
emergency bag.

Add a backpack that will hold
all personal health items for
the family such as toilet paper,
prescriptions, toothbrushes,
toothpaste, matches, flashlight,
and a list of allergies and drug

You should be prepared to be
away for 72 hours from your

In a larger container, place some
food and a minimum of one gallon
of water per person.

Any copies of personal documents
such as photo I.D., emergency
phone numbers, social security
numbers, and insurance cards
should be sealed in zip-type
plastic bags.

Add a flashlight, battery powered
radio, paper and pencil, first
aid kit, garbage bags, duct tape,
jack knife, plastic bucket, whistle,
dust masks, local map, candles
and matches, to this box.

This larger family box should fit
into the trunk of the car.

Have some sort of weapon to
protect yourself, and family, bear
spray, or hornet spray is a good
choice, it will spray a stinging
solution into eyes, up to thirty

Grab your wallets, keys, purses
with at least $50 in cash and
coins for phone calls, and get

Be ready, keep your vehicle's
gas tank at least half-full at
all times.

Any food should be of the basic
non-perishable food types such
as dried fruit, granola bars,
canned tuna, canned pork,
beans, and dried milk.

Bottled water and juice is good,
each person requires one
gallon of water per day.

Take along paper towel,
disposable cups, spoons and

A bottle of household liquid
bleach (food safe), and an
eyedropper, to purify water

If you have a pet, provide for
them too.

This may sound like a lot and
a little overwhelming to put
together, but anything you can
round up now, is better than
having nothing later.

Take it one step at a time
and get every member of
the family involved.

As in any emergency, use
common sense and try to
remain calm.

Rotate stored ready to go food
items and water in the home
at least every three months.

Distilled water stores longer
and is great for washing cuts.

Teach even the youngest
children which Bag/Backpack
is theirs, why it is necessary
and what to do when the
time comes to go.


When the power goes off every
thing electric in the house and
outside stops.

Lights, fans, appliances, air
conditioner, and pumps.

If your water is delivered by
pump, no water will eventually
come out of the taps, toilets will
not fill.

In an emergency the water
in the upper tank of the toilet
can be used for human consumption,
the lower bowl water for pets.

Your electric, or gas hot water
tank holds about 40 US gallons
of water, this can also be used
in an emergency
