The Portable Emergency Kit

Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce our next workshop with Stefan Verstappen, our local survivalist / "prepper".

Often called a Bug Out Bag (BOB) a Portable Emergency Kit is an essential component of any disaster plan. This seminar goes over the uses and differences between an Emergency Evacuation, and 'Bugging Out'. Stefan will bring in a sample kit and go through the contents explaining the need and function for each item.

Attendees will learn:

  • The five categories of items all kits should contain.
  • The dangerous myths of Bugging Out.
  • How to carry everything you need to survive three days on your person.
  • The little known alternative escape routes the can get you out of the city unnoticed.
  • and much more

All attendees will receive a print out of the workshop's highlights and include suggested lists for items you should have in your kit.

Hope to see you there!

    Hi Everyone

    This will be a fun and informal presentation on putting together the most basic component of any disaster preparedness plan.

    The portable emergency kit is a template that can be scaled up or down. Take just the smallest essentials, and you have a pocket kit. Double everything and you have a home emergency kit.

    We'll discuss the strategies behind many of the items, which you can use to create your own personal kit.

    Also those of us who are interested in these and other sustainable skills can begin to form a support network to exchange ideas.

    I look forward to seeing you all there.
