Week 5: How much time do you spend on the road?

Go-Kit items:

A Go-Kit is a kit of items you can take with you if you need to quickly evacuate. Many people store a Go-Kit in their vehicle as well as in their house. The kit can come in useful if you are stuck somewhere with your vehicle.

This week make sure you have the following items stored in your vehicle or in a place that you can easily grab should you need to evacuate:

  • Extra change of clothing and shoes
  • Hygiene supplies, such as hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.
  • 1st aid kit
  • Whistle
  • Flashlight
  • Body warmers; thermal emergency blankets
  • Water; protein bars

Commuter Emergency Plan: Make sure you have a plan for traveling between work and home, and other commonly visited locations, in case of an emergency. Before an emergency happens, list your normal and some alternative routes you can use to get to your destinations. Keep a copy of this plan in your wallet or another safe place where you can access it in the event of a disaster.

Next week you’ll learn about creating a Go-Kit for your child.
