Jay says: "What do I put in my "GO" bag?"

I am often asked when teaching disaster preparedness... "What do I need to pack and for how long?" The standard teaching use to say 72 hours. In recent years, that 72hours was pushed to 5 days...today I am of the mindset of 1 week/ 7 days. Plan on having supplies for your family to survive 7 days.
The main item for survival is clean, potable drinking water. The equation to use is 1Gx1Px1D...(1 gallon per person per day) Below is a link to click on to print a PDF file from the U.S. Government that is a great guide to get started, but by no means is this list the end-all.


Good luck, but more important...good preparedness.
