Saw camping equipment at Target, which reminded me that I need to get an emergency kit together. Two kits, really; one that doesn’t take up much space (to be kept in the car), and a more extensive kit for the house.
Various websites recommend the obvious: Water, first-aid supplies, battery-op radio, etc. Some of the stuff I don’t agree with; for example, toothbrushes and toothpaste. During an evacuation, I’ll have bigger things to worry about than morning breath. Or scissors–a utility knife makes more sense to me.
It occurs to me that woodworkers might have a different list of essentials. What would you include in an evac kit, knowing that you might need to carry everything on your back?
