Job Emergency Kit?

What if you got stuck at the office overnight?

Let's plan now...Climate change is serious shit. Your workplace emergency kit should fit into a small duffel bag, stashed under your desk or in your locker.  Some of us already have our "bug out bags" or "survival kits" in our cars, but a separate kit at work will prevent you from having to leave the building at all until it is safe.

If you are a business owner and manager-- WE strongly encourage you to give serious thought to ways you can be prep to assist your most valuable assets–your employees–in the event of a disaster hitting during working hours. Every workplace needs to keep an up-to-date first aid kit and extra food/snacks and fresh water. A generator would help too.

YOUR KIT: 
small fleece or wool blanket and pillow
a change of clothes (clean shirt, undies, jeans, head scarf)
Sturdy, warm, waterproof shoes with wool socks are an absolute must (for winter)
Warm hooded sweatshirt
Toothbrush, toothpaste, a small bar of soap, and a hand towel
Quick Food: granola bars, crackers, nuts like honey-roasted cashews, tea and coffee packets
Extra Good: 
Beef jerky
Raw Crystallized ginger (for tummy ache)
Red Wine (also for tummy ache)
Cash (and coins)
Crank flashlight with extra batteries
A book to read and a deck of cards 
Tins you make ahead with jokes and survival tips and snacks

Particle Masks – you can use a basic dust mask or go with something a little more beefy like an N95 particle mask. But you want something to help cover your nose/mouth if the emergency involves dust and flying particles and/or smoke. You can use a hankerchief, but a dust mask is just as easy to store in your box.
Whistle – If you are stuck in a portion of the building that has collapse from an earthquake, for example, you’ll want a whistle like this one that you can use to let emergency rescuers hear you.
