Grab-N-Go Bag Essentials You Must Have

  1. 1. The Grab-n-Go Bag Basics Everyone Should Have The Green Beret Preparation and Survival Guide
  2. 2. A grab-n-go bag is a staple of survival and emergency preparedness. It’s something you can take with you, and is your survival kit in your house, in your car and at your work. It’s too late to prepare once the emergency is on you. There will also be a huge run of panicked people buying many of these same items; get it together now so you have it ready. Please remember, there are an infinite number of emergencies, opinions, equipment, and needs. The following is a basic template for essentials we all need. What To Have Ready
  3. 3. The Grab & Go bag should be tailored to your locale. Try to get items that have multiple uses, rather than just one. You must keep track of expiration dates on perishables, mainly food, water and medical supplies. The Grab & Go Bag
  4. 4. How much can you carry? If you aren’t experienced in backpacks, ask an expert at your local outdoors store. After you finish this presentation and have gotten all you need, then you get a bag that will fit the gear. No matter the backpack, have waterproof bags to put everything inside the backpack. Keeping gear (and yourself) dry is paramount in a survival/emergency situation. The Bag Itself
  5. 5. While I list a number of items in the following slides, the next one shows a pre-packaged kit you can get on Amazon. I’ve looked it over and bought it for my son. It includes generic basics and is much better than having nothing, or waiting until you can do your Area Study and then make your own kit. The Bag Itself
  6. 6. Using my Green Beret Preparation and Survival Guide you can do an Area Study and tailor your GnG bags to your specific situation and environment. However, to be prepared a basic, well-stocked, pre-made one is a good idea. I recently purchased this for my son to have, just in case, as I feel it’s a solid buy with the right equipment. A Grab-n-Go Bag
  7. 7. The following items are for building your own kit. Remember, the Area Study will determine what you need. How to an Area Study is in The Green Beret Preparation and Survival Guide. There is also a free slideshow that gives the basics on my web site. Link is at the end. The Bag Itself
  8. 8. 4 full 500ml water bottles. This is your immediate emergency supply if you have no time to fill up your . . . Containers. Either a built in water supply such as a Camelbak or pockets/clips for water carriers. Most packs have external loops on which you can secure canteens and water carriers. Your first priority is to fill up this container with potable water or fill from your household water stash if bugging out. The four water bottles are to sustain you to get to that point. They also then become extra water containers. WATER
  9. 9. Empty compressible water containers. 2 gallons capacity. For after establishing base camp Purification. Lifestraw equivalent and two bottles purification tablets. Click on images below for links. Water
  10. 10. You must have a way of quickly filtering water for your family. There are numerous ones available. Here is one I purchased. There is also a slightly more expensive system that doesn’t require pumping and works via gravity. Either one can be a lifesaver for your family. Water
  11. 11. Fire is your friend in a survival situation. I know we’d all like to use that bow and stick, but for emergencies, a lighter is much easier. I pack several lighters from experience. Windproof. Stormproof matches in a waterproof container. Click on images below. Lighters and Matches
  12. 12. Non-perishables for three days minimum. Food that doesn’t require refrigeration. Don’t have food that will make you thirsty. Plan for infants and special dietary requirements. Note expiration dates. Click on image for a good, 25 year expiration, supply from the company that made our Long Range Patrol meals in Special Forces. It’s what we have on hand and in our grab-n-go bags. Also good for camping. Food
  13. 13. I have a variety of ration bars (click on each for link): ER Bar Grizzly Bear Emergency Food Rations DaTrex 3600 Below are some before going into a ziplock bag and into my Jeep. Food
  14. 14. A small, portable stove. I use the MSR Dragonfly for camping and my grab-n-go bag. Make sure you have plenty of fuel. Click on image. Food
  15. 15. Pots to cook in with utensils. A simple set up that I use is below. Food
  16. 16. Know what the emergency broadcast stations are. Below is a hand crank/solar radio/flashlight combo I have on hand and in all my grab-n-go bags. Click on image for link. Survival Radio
  17. 17. A tent is valuable but takes up a lot of space and weight. At the very least, you need an emergency sleeping bag and a poncho. I have the emergency sleeping bag below in all my G&G bags and in all our cars. It’s inexpensive, light and small. A poncho can be worn, but also made into a shelter using 550/parachute cord. Click on images. Shelter
  18. 18. Being able to see in the dark is key. Batteries tend to be heavy and get used up but AAA are light and small. Consider the following array: Handcrank light (the one below also has window breaker, seatbelt cutter, USB cell phone charger); a headlamp for moving and doing things in camp; and a single AAA light I keep in a sheath with my Leatherman Click on images. Light
  19. 19. I always have the one on the left on my belt along with the single battery flashlight. It gets used every day. I have the vice grips Leatherman on the right in my Jeep and it gets used a lot. The flashlight was linked earlier. Multi-Tool
  20. 20. There are plenty of prepared ones you can buy. Below is one I have in house and in grab-n-go bags. Click on image for link. Make sure you have medications to last a week. Extra glasses, contacts, etc. First Aid Kit
  21. 21. I recommend adding some emergency quick-clot bandages to your first aid kit along with a splint and an Israeli combat bandage— all in one convenient packet. I can verify it works. $24.95 First Aid Kit
  22. 22. What To Do? A mask can be very helpful is you must go out. While people might give you odd looks, it’s better than being sick and/or dying. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  23. 23. Appropriate for time of year and environment. Socks. And more socks. Pants and long sleeve shirts of a material that dries quickly. I generally pack one extra pair of pants. A wool cap— most heat escapes through the head. A boonie hat— keep the sun off, protects your head. Clothing
  24. 24. Not just for weather but to protect your hands. In the field, I always wear gloves. The ones on the left are touchscreen. The ones on the right provide more protection. Clothing
  25. 25. A folding saw. A survival knife. Parachute cord. A Signal mirror. I have all below in my bag . Click on images. Tools
  26. 26. Snares are an effective, passive form of hunting that is also very secure. The steel cables also have other uses. An array of zip ties— you’ll find many uses for them, including, if need be, handcuffs. The middle ones are basic; the ones on the right are for major things. Tools
  27. 27. You can’t count on the GPS on your phone. Have a physical road map of at least your state. Download the contour map for your area for free, then print it out, or order the map sheets. I have a separate slideshare (linked at end) about free downloadable maps, how to read them and other pertinent information. Maps
  28. 28. While we rely on GPS there are many emergencies where that might not be available. In that case, a compass is invaluable. I have the one below tied of to my survival vest. Compass
  29. 29. Tooth brush, toothpaste. Liquid, disinfectant soap (double bag). Foot powder. Toilet paper or baby wipes. Feminine Hygiene. Baby products Toiletries
  30. 30. Power will be out. ATMs won’t work Store computer systems will have crashed. It will be a cash environment for a while. How much? Enough for: plane, bus ticket to evac site; cost of hotel room for at least 3 nights; cost of 3 tank full of gas; food for family for two weeks; misc. expenses. CASH
  31. 31. This was just the an overview and probably overwhelming. In the The Green Beret Preparation and Survival Guide the GnG bag is broken down into a basic one everyone should have and then a list of more advanced items. Grab-n-Go Bag Your main bag is wherever you spend most of your time. For most of us, that’s at home. Have it readily accessible so you can literally grab it as you run out. You can also toss it in your car easily.
