Pack these food when prepping your emergency go bag
In the face of disaster, it is always advisable to be prepared. To arm yourselves against disasters like typhoons and earthquakes, it is recommended that you keep a 72 hour go bag or bug out bag ready in your home at all times.
The go bag includes essentials like emergency devices such as flashlights, batteries, transistors, first aid kits, a whistle, change of clothes and food items to sustain you when you get trapped on a worst case scenario.
Perhaps you’ve seen episodes of Doomsday Preppers but you don’t really have to go that far to sustain yourself for a couple of days. You just need to include in your go bag food items that are compact, filling and would last you a longer time than most of the items on your pantry.
Recommended items are granola bars and meat jerkies, which have vitamins and minerals that would sustain you for a longer period of time.
Water (at least two bottles per person) because survival depends on H20.
Like energy bars, crackers are also a good item to have on your go bag because they don’t go bad quickly, they’re very light and they give you energy.
Canned goods are also okay but get the easy open cans so you can eat them anytime, anywhere. A better option though is meat packed in sachets and pouches because its more lightweight and saves on space.
You may steer clear of candy bars on normal days but your go bag can definitely benefit from some as the sugar will provide you with the energy you need to keep going.
If you have access to it, ready to it meals like those rationed to soldiers on duty is a great way to load up on essentials.
But more than what to include in your bag, make sure that these go bags are accessible and ready to go in case disaster strikes. Also, periodically check if the food items in your bag are still not expired.
Stay safe everyone! (ANGEL ONG)
