Whether you are ready to an emergency situation? How to collect the emergency small suitcase (backpack).

In Japan occurred on March 11, 2011 the strongest earthquake measuring 9,0 in the history of the country. It was followed by a tsunami and a series of aftershokovy pushes measuring 5,0 - 6,0. Natural disasters caused huge damage North - to east regions of the country, and also led to accident on the NPP. The Japanese authorities recommended to citizens to prepare the emergency small suitcase on a case of possible deterioration in a situation in the country. Without fail it is recommended to each citizen to have at least two subjects in a stock: portable radio receiver and high-calorific sweets... (from news)

the Emergency (disturbing) small suitcase is the generalized definition of a basic set of things necessary for each civil person to survive in any extreme situation. The civil disturbing small suitcase, as a rule, represents the completed backpack from 30 and more liters containing a necessary individual minimum of clothes, sanitary products, medicines, tools, means of individual protection and food. All things in a disturbing small suitcase are new (periodically updated) and strictly are not used by the owner in everyday life. The civil disturbing small suitcase is intended for the fastest evacuation from a zone of extraordinary incident, whether it be an earthquake, a flood, the fire, the aggravated criminogenic situation, epicenter of military operations etc. I Consider

that today the disturbing small suitcase has to be present at each family. If you think differently, then you do not have sense to read further.

First of all it is necessary to be defined with small suitcase . For this purpose, in my opinion, it is more convenient to use a small backpack. Why backpack, but not a bag? Present a situation in which you should walk, but not to drive the car. For example, everywhere a jam it is also necessary to be evacuated urgently on foot. Threw with a backpack and went. With a bag is more problematic - to drag less conveniently. At once there is a wish to tell about laying of a backpack. Both small, and forwarding backpacks should be stacked not by the principle heavy - down and to distribute freight evenly. Perfectly, if you have a backpack with cellar (lower valve). Stack a backpack so that it was possible quickly and without difficulties to find the necessary thing. It is good if the backpack is completed with a special cape from a rain. If it is not in a set, then it can be bought separately. Also It should be noted that the preference should be given to a backpack which conveniently settles down on a back, does not constrain movements and will not disperse on seams the first 30 minutes.

We will consider now in more detail and thoroughly what sets of things and products of prime necessity you will need to collect. The list is partially based on recommendations of New - York service on emergency situations. Perhaps, in your district and for your family it should be reduced or, on the contrary, to expand. For example, at elderly, disabled people and children there are special needs.
