An emergency survival cache at work is important. We talk a lot about fitness here, but a small cache of emergency items is important to your health. It can literally mean life or death. At the very minimum it assures you greater comfort when faced with non-ideal circumstances brought on by an emergency.
We’ve all got at least a few emergency items at home, but what if somethings happen when you’re out of the house? Let’s take a looksie at a scenario involving Susie and Harold. Which one will fare better when disaster strikes? We’ll also be looking at the items I keep in my own emergency cache…
Susie is an accountant. She squats, deadlift and runs marathons. Susie loves organic food and never says curse words. She also uses moist towelettes to wipe her butt. So ya, she’s pretty much a perfect human.
Harold is a carpet installer. When he gets off work, he don’t do shit. He always eats 3 donuts for breakfast and watches Girls ‘Gone Cray-Cray when his wife is out the house. It is questionable as to when Harold last showered.
Both Susie and Harold were at their jobs when a widespread meteor shower hit (or insert your favorite disaster here). It knocked out power, destroyed cars, leveled homes, released the Kraken from the deep, and created other forms of chaos. There is no going in or out of the city. There is no clean water flowing through the plumbing system and toilets are beginning to back up. Everyone has been advised to shelter in place right where they are.
