Disaster can strike at any time. Will you be prepared to react if you are away from your preps at home?
Do you have a plan to get home from work?
Along with a plan, you will also want some important gear that can help you with that deal. Depending on your job and how far from home you are you might need lots of gear or you might need a little.
Some people will lean on a solid plan and their EDC items.
EDC or Everyday Carry items are those things that you carry on a daily basis.
Other people will rely on a Get Home Bag.
The get home bag is a bag full of the gear and things you need to get safely from your job to your home. The get home bag is an important part of prepper gear.
With these items, you can create an urban evacuation kit for work.
What types of things are going to get in your way? Well, it depends on the disaster. You could be dealing with raging waters from a flood or raging mobs from a riot.
There will be many different types of obstacles. Be aware and mark potential obstacles on your map.
The disaster may not end when you get home. You will have to take action and understand the scope of this disaster. From here you will be able to discern what type of action you need to take.
Consult the news, radios and any other methods of intelligence gathering you might have on hand. This will all go a long way!
You never know it might be time to bugout in order to keep you and your family safe. This is why plans are so important.
