UnCategorized No matter how much control we like to think that we have, we never really know where we are going to be when disaster strikes. If you happen to be in your car when roads get washed out or otherwise impassible, or when you find yourself trapped on the side of the road, you’ll find that having a emergency bag is precisely what you need to stay warm and .fortable until help .es. It can be more than just a matter of .fort; it can save your life. Remember that even if you are not dealing with an area-wide catastrophe that a good 72 hour emergency bag is still something that can .e in handy. Accidents do happen, and you’ll also find that running out of gas, breaking down, running off the road and even winter road closures are things that can trap you out in your car for hours or even for days at a time. A car can be a ready source of shelter if only you know to use it, and with a little bit of preparation, you can be as cozy as you would be in your home. The following items will provide a primer on the basic contents of an emergency bag for the automobile. – Water: a gallon per person per day – Food: At least three days worth of ready to eat non-perishable food. Canned food or packaged army surplus rations work well, but be sure your food does not require too much water or heat to prepare. – Flashlight and replacement batteries (replace with fresh ones on a regular basis to prevent corrosion) or better yet, a hand crank model – Prescription medication/feminine hygiene supplies if applicable – A shrill whistle: to signal for help – Dust mask: to help filter contaminated air – Blankets/ foldable emergency foil blanket – Maps of the surrounding area – Personal sanitation: moist towelettes, hand sanitizer – First Aid kit: With instructions on how to use it in case of injuries – Tools: a sharp knife, a manual can opener for canned food and a crowbar. Another reason that you may want to consider having a 72 hour emergency bag in your car is that you may need to evacuate with your family. In this case, a portable emergency bag is handy and each member of your family should have a bag of their own to grab should the need arise. Remember that the set that is kept in your car is different and that it should be kept in your car. The more supplies that you have stored, the better you are going to feel, so make sure that both your car and your home is outfitted accordingly. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
