A good prepper always has a bug-out bag (BOB) packed and ready. The items in each prepper’s BOB may vary depending on specific needs, but each BOB should always have the following essential items. (h/t to Survivopedia.com)
When preparing your first aid kit, you need to know how to use each item so you can treat cuts, wounds and stop bleeding when you don’t have access to emergency medical services.
You need the following items when prepping your BOB’s first aid kit:
Having tools for firestarting and setting up a shelter is necessary to help you survive a long-term disaster scenario in the wilderness, especially during harsh weather conditions.
Make sure your BOB or pocket survival kit contains several methods to start a fire.
You’ll need to find clean water to drink so you can stay hydrated and cook when SHTF.
When prepping food for your BOB, chose items that are compact, light and ready to eat.
Knowing how to navigate the terrain you’re in may be more important than being able to signal for help since it will allow you to make it out on your own without having to wait for rescuers.
When preparing your BOB, consider the terrain that you’re traveling in. Include gear that will help you find food and water, along with tools that you can use for firestarting and building a shelter. Lastly, always carry an IFAK on your person. With a BOB, you’ll have what you need to fend for yourself and find your way back to safety if SHTF.
