While most people agree on what goes in a go-bag initially, three are some items you may not need, or may not need to worry about. If you are going somewhere, and that place has a good abundance of food, for instance, you may want to leave some of that out. This also goes for water. If you are going to be close to a water source, you may not need to worry about water, just how to make sure it is safe to drink, cook with, and use for personal hygiene.
We will give you a list of what most people have in their go-bags, and you can certainly add or deduct from there.
We hope that if you do decide to travel, you are careful on the roads, and even check road conditions right before you leave the house. Keep extra items in your car so that if something does happen on your trip, you can take care of yourself.
If you are flying, be diligent about wearing your mask, washing your hands, and keeping your distance from other people.
Preparing when you live in a city is a little complicated. You are not going to be able to throw a noisy generator on your deck to run your refrigerator, and probably will not be able to start a fire right outside for warmth or cooking. While it is manageable, it is different for those of us that live in the city than those that live in the country.
Urban preparedness has more to do with “trust less, prep more” than anything else. Worry about what you have and how you are going to protect it is key.
