INTRODUCTION TO (BOB) THE BUG OUT BAG
URBAN SURVIVAL SERIES
Defensive Strategies announces our Urban Survival Series. This series of classes will prepare students in urban survival in various situations such as natural disasters such as snow storms, hurricanes, etc, as well as man made disasters and other events where survival skills and gear maybe necessary.
A bug-out bag is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours when evacuating from a disaster. It is also known as a 72-hour kit, a grab bag, a battle box, and other popular names include “Personal Emergency Relocation Kits” (PERKs) GO Bag and GOOD (Get Out Of Dodge) bag. The focus is on evacuation, rather than long-term survival, distinguishing the bug-out bag from a survival kit, a boating or aviation emergency kit, or a fixed-site disaster supplies kit. The kits are also popular in the survivalism subculture.
What you will learn:
What is the Bug Out Bag, what should be in it, whats better, and Every Day Carry (EDC) items. Discussion and recommendations for a personal “always on you” (EDC) kit, a grab bag and a get out of town on foot or vehicle bag.

- An open mind
- Pen and paper
- Bring your BOB and we can go thru it with you and answer question and provide guidance
