Are You Ready For An Emergency? Go Bag Essentials

emergency emergency situations go bag ready bag travel bag Nov 03, 2020

The past 7 months have been some of the craziest month’s of our lives! You would think I would have learned to create a “Go Bag” by now incase of an emergency, but it really took these recent fires and Irvine evacuations for me to really open my eyes. We luckily did not have to be evacuated in our area, but if we did, we would HAVE NOT been ready at all.

 

What is a “Go Bag?” A “Go Bag” is a bag that is by your door or in your car that includes everything you need to survive for 3-7 days. There are plenty of resources out there to help you create an emergency pack and I’ve compiled everything we’ve learned based on these findings. REI also hosts classes (currently virtual) that teaches you these different principles as well. They have some PRETTY DOPE classes too. 10/10 would recommend!

 

Below is what we have in our packs. Josh and I each have a Go Bag and don’t forget about your children and fur babies!
