What is a Bug-out Bag?
A bug-out bag is a portable container, stocked with enough items to ensure survival over a 72-hour window following a major disaster or crisis. Bug–out bags also go by the following names: Personal Emergency Relocation Kits (PERKs), Go Bags, and Get Out Of Dodge (G.O.O.D.) Bags. The focal point of a bug–out bag is its ability to aid in evacuation procedures. Bug–out bags are generally not intended to aid in long–term survival, as evidenced by their popular contents.
