It is official (at least to us), May is “Take BOB, Jr. To Work Month”! Why take a mini-BOB to work? The answers could be endless – weather, civil unrest, strikes, power outages, your employer requires it, because you want to be prepared. Unless you work at home with BOB nearby, a BOB, Jr. can make your life at work a bit more secure. Depending on your circumstances and your commute time, you might want to consider adding the following to a small, portable bag that is secured at work, or at least in the vehicle you drive to work:
⋄ Who or What Is BOB? ⋄
BOB – Bug-Out Bag, aka “72 hour kit” or “Go Bag” – is your best friend and hero who will help you navigate nearly any crisis.
Though often thought of as merely for evacuation emergencies, BOB is also an easy method of assembling and quickly accessing equipment needed for a multitude of emergencies. Though you may never face a large-scale natural disaster, you may be forced to ‘shelter in place’ or evacuate in a moment’s notice due to severe weather, broken water pipes, loss of power, gas main break, toxic chemical spill, flat tire…..the list is nearly endless. The important thing to remember is that NOT preparing does NOT protect you from crisis, it only makes any crisis more painful.
