Intro Get Home Bag
Your ‘Get Home Bag’ may be the most important bag on a day to day basis. Their content are usually kept either at work or in your car and its focus is upon getting you home to a safer a safer environment. Complemented by the ECB here is a list of the things you are going to want to bring in your Get Home Bag:
Again, tailor your bag for you, but here are some suggestions for a GHB – or Get Home Bag. By the way, DavidSurvival.com will be offering a GHB sortly.
● A full sized Crowbar
● Black Magic Marker
● Small Portable Radio
● Chemical Light Sticks
● Emergency Water
● First Aid Kit
● A Cold Compress (chemical)
● Industrial Work Gloves
● N95 Mask
● Tool Kit
● $40-$60 in Singles
● Safety Glasses
● Climbing Rope
● Warm Clothing
As you can see it is far more comprehensive than your everyday carry. It is also designed to help you get home safely and involves tools that will help you escape the deepest subway tunnel to the tallest skyscraper.
The larger crowbar will allow greater leverage for lifting heavier objects or opening doors to vital areas in case of a serious natural disaster. Elevator shafts can be jammed shut – using your hands to pry them open is not suggested and will injure you. A crowbar can help you pry them open.
PICTURE of HEADLAMP
The headlamp is a bit inconvenient to carry every day, but will be extremely useful as it requires no hands to use effectively. This is important if you are working in a situation and need additional light. It will free up your hands and allow you to concentrate more on work.
Magic Marker PICTURE
The magic marker is important as it will write on anything. It can be used to leave messages and directions to people who may pass by or to make a note of where you have been in order to ensure you can return and finally can be used to write signs to communicate with people during daytime.
SOME USES of Other Items – More to come on these
A small portable radio will allow you to listen to any emergency broadcasts which could give you vital information on evacuation and where to find safety.
A bandana can serve as a makeshift bandage but mainly is used in order to allow you to breathe where they may be thick dust.
Chemical Light Sticks are useful because they allow you to attract attention or mark a location in the night for an extended period while retaining the use of your flashlight and headlamp.
Obviously, emergency water and First Aid kit are perhaps some of the more important parts of this bag. Water is an extremely valuable resource in a survival situation and a first aid kit will be vital in dealing with any wounds you have received. A chemical cold compress are however extremely useful for dealing with sprains and other injuries
PICTURE of Industrial work gloves
Industrial Work Gloves in an urban environment are essential. While they will allow you to do heavy lifting of rubble or move hazardous objects in your path, they also provide a layer of protection to your hands.
Covered more in the harsh bag, the N95 mask is important in case of a biological or nuclear attack where toxins or radioactive particles may be present. Though not as comprehensive as a gas mask they should protect you long enough to get home.
PICTURE OF $1 bill
Prepare to have $40 to $60 in cash – preferably $1 bills so you can purchase water and other items on your way home from local or street vendors.
As mentioned above, this bag is important to your daily survival. It will be available on Davidsurvival.com in the coming weeks
