CUSTOMIZING YOUR BUG-OUT BAG
Creating a bug-out-bag for each member in your family is a smart way to go, especially if you live in a disaster prone area. Doing this doesn't have to be “work,” set up a family night and make it fun. Try setting up a scavenger hunt or making it a “quest.”

We can help you get started with pet supplies too!
