What’s in your go bag? Tell us!

Here at the American Red Cross, we don’t just want to help you when you’re in trouble. We want to help you get prepared for when the worst happens.

So if there’s an emergency, and you’re going to be without power, what’s in your go bag? Do you have seven days worth of medication on hand if you have to evacuate? What about something to entertain your dog? Or an extra blanket for your kids?

Here’s what we suggest you have, but you’re going to need to customize it for your needs.

  • Flashlight
  • Radio (hand crank or battery-powered)
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation/personal hygiene items
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Emergency blanket
  • Emergency contact card
  • Extra cash
  • Map

What’s in your go bag? Tweet us a photo at @RedCrossEastMA with #GoRedCross, tag us in a YouTube video with #GoRedCross, Or post your list here on this blog.
