Emergency Planning and Disaster Supplies

Creating a disaster plan

One of the most important steps you can take in preparing for emergencies is to develop a household disaster plan.

1. Learn about the natural disasters that could occur in your community from
your local emergency management office or American Red Cross chapter. Learn whether hazardous materials are produced, stored or transported near your area. Learn about possible consequences of deliberate acts of terror. Ask how to prepare for each potential emergency and how to respond.

2. Talk with employers and school officials about their emergency response
plans.

3. Talk with your household about potential emergencies and how to respond to each. Talk about what you would need to do in an evacuation.

Another thing to remember is that you need to have 'prep' stuff with you at work, at home and in the car. It's foolish to think that you can just head home (or wherever) when the SHTF. It will be chaos and normal travel times will triple or even be impractical.

I think that this is exactly right. I take a layered approach with my preparedness.
I have my edc on body carry which is
Basics of multi tool, knife,firearm , flashlight, nitrile gloves
And a small edc bag for work, class or anything else, with water and basic day-2 snacks.

A car kit/ ghb that varies depending on seasons. And distance traveled. Basically just add to the existing bag or take away depending on location.

Then home preparedness. Usual food, water, security etc.

And a bug out plan.

I think something very important to note besides just having the layers of preps but to test that gear while weather isn't ideal. Take your ghb out and walk a few miles next time it rains or snows and see what you think you missed. Same with a winter car kit. I'm not saying set up in the car over night but double check blankets. Is your water frozen. Etc. Heat sources. All that is a good way to shave weight off your kits.
