Recently, Ms. Prepper and I have been discussing the recent events by ISIS, impending terror threats around the world, unrest in Israel, the lack of interest by our own elected officials, etc. We came to the conclusion that it was time to build on the small emergency kit she keeps in her drawer at work, as well as put together a deeper plan around getting out of NYC in the event of a natural or man made disaster. The latter being the one we are worried about the most, with the potential for a 9/11 type attack being first and foremost in our minds.
That said, I am not going to go into the “additional stuff” that we added to the kit, or what was in the old kit. What I have done, is provided you with:
- A slightly incomplete copy of the plan,
- An inventory of the kit contents
- Simple instruction on how to act, react, and what to do in the event of a disaster
- Simple instructions on how to use the gear in the kit that may be a bit confusing when you are under duress.
Below is a button to download this document. I thought I would share, and help you kick start a plan of your own if you don’t already have one.
Final note: I know this may not be complete. It is a version one (1). I am sure it will be refined in time, and will add additional detail as I add it, and post later versions here. Below is the link. Please let me know what you think.
Great post! I would also make sure to remember important documents like passport, titles/ownership docs, account numbers, etc. Check out my site for more items and tips on city/apartment prepping. I’d love to hear your feedback!
Thanks, and makes perfect sense, with the exception that the “our” plan is to get someone home, so they will have whatever EDC they went into the city with that day. On the other hand, if you live in the city, then the “bug out” scenario is more comprehensive for the individual getting out of dodge.
