Think about what you would need if the power went out. What would you want and need if you had to leave or “Bug Out” in a hurry. Think three (3) days. Sometimes it can take a while for help to come.
These are important things that you can have on hand to eat, drink, or keep yourself happy and calm.
Some ideas are: granola bars, bottled water, a favorite book or toy, a flashlight, and your inhaler if you need one. The power might not work, so electronic games are not always helpful.
Find a backpack or duffle bag you can use only in emergencies. This is your Bug Out bag. Place the items you know you need in your “Bug Out” bag. Now put your bag in a place where you know you’ll find it.
Did you do it? You did!
Congratulations! You’ve taken your third step as a Ready Marine Corps Kid.
