What should be in your family bug out bag?
When packing a family bug out bag it is important to consider whether or not your entire family is mobile or if some may need assistance. If you have an infant you will need to consider bringing a backpack carrier combo to carry your little one and make it to a safe location depending on the storm situation.
With the other family members you will need to divide up the gear based on who can carry what and maintain the same speed with that extra amount of weight.
Next we want to cover what should be in each bug out back and these are these for an extreme situation. Below is the list of extreme situation gear at minimum:
-Basic First Aid
-Emergency Contact List
-Comfort Items (Especially if traveling with an infant)
Where should you keep these emergency bags? You want them to be in a safe dry place that is easily accessible in a hurried situation. The best place would be in the closet by the front door or in the garage by the exit.
