In times of emergency a Bug Out Bag or a Go Bag, as it is also called, is invaluable. 

But before we go any farther, for the uninitiated, what exactly is a “Go Bag?”

A Go Bag is an emergency survival bag (normally a backpack) that is filled with the essential survival gear that you would need during a short-term natural disaster or crisis. It’s meant to be grabbed quickly so that one can dash out the door, hence the term “Go Bag.” 

And while some pooh-pooh the idea of a Go Bag, think back to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Thousands of people had to evacuate their homes, and many of them were not in the best of situations. Think of all the wildfires that are destroying communities out west. And as we’ve seen all over the world, no one really knows when the next terrorist incident could strike.
