PrepWise Wednesday — Getting to Know BOB

Photobucket

This is the start of my Wednesday Series. I think having “preps” in the house is so important, and I encourage everyone to do some prepping. We have weather emergencies, health emergencies, and even government emergencies. So you need to have your emergency preparations in place.

The first you thing you need to do is get you BOBs together? Who is BOB? you are asking. More along the lines of a what is BOB. It is your Bug Out Bag. This is a bag you put together for each person and animal in your family. It will contain 3 days worth of food, personal hygiene items and clothing. Start thinking about it. You get the call to evacuate NOW. You don’t have time to put things in the suitcase all you have time to do is grab your keys and GO! Now you have nothing.
