You may already have a 72-hour disaster kit or even a longer-term Doomsday survival kit, but what if you’re caught at work when disaster strikes? If you don’t already have one, create a survival kit that will help you get home from work and keep you safe for at least 24 hours.
Why do you need a Get Home Bag (GHB)? Most of us spend more time away from home than at home, and as The Art of Manliness points out, “just getting home can be a survival journey in and of itself” — whether the disaster is caused by severe weather, a blackout, terrorist attack, or other event.
Creek Stewart, author of Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit, outlines all the supplies he keeps in his GHB. Not surprisingly, these include water, energy bars and a multi-tool.
Some items you might not have thought of are a paper map, paracord, small signal mirror, and headlamp. His list is more extensive than the office survival kit we’ve noted before. Check out Stewart’s list to make sure you don’t miss any items that could make all the difference when you need to get home safely.
