The recent shooting at the Washington Naval Yard has again highlighted that dangerous workplace incidents can and do happen —whether acts of violence or of mother nature.

It’s wise for employees to look after themselves and to not rely on their employer for all that they need to survive a grave situation, be it shelter or to get somewhere safe.

Radio Special Correspondent Mike Causey suggests that each and every employee should have a “Bug Out Bag” which is specific to their situation and workplace. With the view that you may have to walk to safety.

He suggests that you should have some of these items in your bug out kit.

  • Comfortable walking shoes and socks.
  • At least a liter of water.
  • Some money in small bills and quarters.
  • Extra doses of any prescription medication. (Changed regularly)
  • Small bottle of hand sanitizer.
  • Small first aid kit with moleskin for blisters.
  • Small penknife or multitool with scissors and nail file.
  • Some candy and/or fruit bars.
  • Small umbrella or disposable raincoat.
  • Small flashlight.
  • Charger and cable for your cellphone. (One of those battery backups for cell phones might not be a bad idea either.)
