This course builds off Emergency Preparedness 1 and uses the same risk analysis and threat prioritization approach to building a portable emergency kit. The roles of “Get Home Bags”, “Bug Out Bags”, and “Indefinite Evacuation Bags” are covered, as well as suggested contents and a methodology for creating a tiered emergency kit system.

This course is NOT an “instructor’s bag show-and-tell” and does not specifically focus on specific make/models of gear. Rather, it is an instruction set to create a bag-creation methodology, covering gear, gear categories, redundancies, and cost saving measures to ensure YOUR bags meet YOUR plans.
