The Department of Treasury has put out an ad for survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system. Contracts for survival kits are usually made for the military, or law enforcement such as the FBI. The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, according to the solicitation released on Dec. The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines. The kits must also include a “reusable solar blanket” 52 by 84 inches long, a 2,400-calorie food bar, “50 water purification tablets,” a “dust mask,” “one-size fits all poncho with hood,” a rechargeable lantern with built-in radio, and an “Air-Aid emergency mask” for protection against airborne viruses.

Thats right, its like the worthless gear we had in the Air Force that we were forced to use instead of good gear. If you’ve done little to prepare for disaster and want to get a jump-start on shopping for essential items, this affordable emergency kit from REI might be a really good place to start. Before purchasing this kit see the REI website for complete details, price, and specifications as they could change from the time I posted this here.

Ia€™m talking about a a€?Bug-Out Bag,a€? a ready-to-grab-at-anytime kit that gets you out the door and long gone, quickly and safely, when things go south. Even though you probably arena€™t going to have a foreign hit squad on your trail, or Federal agents ready to kick in your door, there are still a number of situations where the Average Joe needs to have a bug-out bag a€” or a a€?Get Home Baga€? (see below) a€” packed and ready to go. So I spoke with Creek Stewart, survival skills trainer, owner of Willow Haven Outdoor, and author of the upcoming book, Build the Perfect Bug-Out Bag: Your 72 Hour Disaster Survival Kit (May 12, Betterway Books), to find out what those situations are, and what we city-dwellers need to have to create an Urban Survival Bug-Out bag thata€™ll keep us from resorting to a€?Lord of the Fliesa€?a€¦ for 3 or 4 days at least. If youa€™re forced out of your home and need to survive on your own for at least 72 hours, Stewart says to remember the Core 4 Basic Human Survival Needs: Shelter, Water, Fire and Food a€“ and to make sure your bag covers them all.
Stewart says to keep in mind the first bug-out bag you grab may actually be a a€?Get Home Baga€? a€” providing you the essentials you need to get out of a stricken city and home to your family. Mass chaos and exodus would make getting from work to home very complicated, and a disaster-stricken city is a very dangerous place.A So, just as military pilots have a a€?get-home survival kita€? packed in their cock-pit, Stewart recommends having a a€?Get Home Baga€? ready to go at your office or in your car. A Get Home Bag is simply a down-sized version of the Bug-Out Bag designed to do just that a€“ get you home safely.A It will be smaller and have fewer supplies a€” just the necessities to get you through and out of ground zero. Stewart told me having Bug-Out bags at the ready isna€™t about becoming a crazy survivalist in the woods or having a bunker mentality. Thank you for partnering with us to maintain a courteous and useful public environment where we can engage in reasonable discourse. It’s a lightweight backpack filled with the things two people need for a 3-day emergency.


If you’ve done little to prepare for disaster this kit can jump start your efforts and give you some immediate protection.
If you are living in the US outside this area, please contact us directly before placing your order. Access to resources such as water, food, medicine and fuel: Large numbers of people congested into small areas will deplete available resources in a matter of hours. Sanitation: Especially in a a€?Grid Downa€? scenario without working water, sewers and trash services, sanitation (and the associated risks) will become a major concern.
Rioting, Looting, Armed Violence: Desperation and lack of order bring out the worst in some people. In fact the price is so right it seems like a handy little pack for the trunk of anyone’s car, including those who are really serious about disaster preparedness.
If you are more serious and want to spend the time creating your own kit, this simple kit can serve as an example. This kit just seemed like the best bargain for someone looking for some instant emergency protection or a simple car kit to augment their other preparations. We also supply you with a list of additional item which you may want to consider packing in your bug out or get home bag. If we choose to incorporate your suggestion or comment into our bags we’ll send you the Deluxe Solar Charger for Cell Phones for FREE!
The list contains items such as clothing, toiletries, walkie talkies, a firearm and much more.
