Grab & Run Bags


In California, our Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has reminded us that we face earthquakes and wild fires, as well as threats of terrorism and disease outbreaks like pandemic flu.  The clear response to all these threats is simple:  “Be Ready.”


A Grab-Run Bag is for those emergencies that require you to leave your home immediately.  Most of the literature on Grab-Run bags recommends that you have a three-day supply of food and water.  However, I can think of a whole lot of scenarios where your Grab-Run Bag(s) can come in real handy right at home during an emergency that has confined you to your residence.


We use duffle bags on rollers to make it easier to transport the bags. Before you decide that these are too big, you may want to consider the contents to see if there are items that you could live without. If so, you can always package less than what I’ve done here into a smaller bag(s). The size of your bag and its contents should reflect your unique needs. Later we will be providing a checklist of what our bags contain. My wife’s bag differs from mine only in the toiletry items she has packed.


My plan includes a bag for my wife, a bag for myself, and a bag for our two cats. We lost our dog due to old age so we only need a bag for our two cats.  We also have a carrier bag for each cat. We are in the process of planning a bag for our huge scarlet macaw. For now, we only have a carrier about the size of a big dog. Whatever your particular needs are for your pets, you should include them in your plan.


Please look over the pictures of the bag's contents. One of the storage bags has a mini drug store with over the counter items, everything we can think we may need.


You are welcome to take our ideas and put together your bags yourself.
