These bags go by many names. GoBag, Bug Out Bag, 72 Hour Bag, Emergency Backpack, and more. You can call it what you want, but just as every home should have a smoke alarm, every person should have an emergency supply kit packed and ready. Preparing for an emergency isn’t just the job of emergency management officials, it’s also an individual responsibility.

“You should be prepared to take care of yourself and members of your family for the first 72 hours – that’s three days – following a disaster,” said May, who oversees operations for the eight Southeastern states that comprise FEMA Region IV.

“Packing an emergency preparedness kit helps ensure the safety and comfort of you and your family members at a time when basic public services may be disrupted,” said May.

An emergency preparedness kit needs to include food and water for each member of your family for three days, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, flashlight, spare batteries, first aid kit, can opener, local maps, moist towelettes, toilet paper, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation.

An emergency preparedness kit will make your time during an emergency more comfortable, ensuring you have foods you like, over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, entertainment, and even treats during a stressful time.
