Pandemic Go-Kits

pandemic-kitsI’ve had Pandemic Preps at my house for a while now.  I also habitually carried some Pandemic Prep stuff in my Day Bag and my Go Bag.  But in the last two days, due to the swine flu breakout/scare,  I’ve decided to put together a hardened kit to carry, primarily so I don’t squish my N95 Masks. 

My previous posts about Pandemic/Swine Flu Preps are here and here.

I made one of the large kits for each vehicle and the smaller one for my daily carry bag.  They’re very simple and easy to throw together.  I wanted to demonstrate for you just how easy it will be to put one together for yourself.

In each one I have:

  • 5 N95 masks (I have 5 so I have a couple to share with people I would rather not die, like the payroll dude).
  • 25 Pairs of disposable vinyl gloves
  • Alcohol based hand sanitizer
  • In my EDC kit I also have alcohol based wipes to wipe off any surfaces I might need sanitary

That’s it. Most of this stuff is available at Wal-Mart or K-Mart.  Actually, all of it usually is but N95 masks are pretty much out of stock in Utah County.

As regular readers will know, I also carry plenty of other survival and prep stuff in my EDC (EveryDay Carry) bag.  I now just throw this small kit in there as well.

    I’d toss in a small thing of soap, if you have water, might as well be a little more thorough. Also, you can get ‘mini’ packs of the gloves, keep them compressed a bit.

    Very good points Jayce! I’ll definitely look for a small bottle of soap to add to it. A compressed pack of gloves would be nice too, haven’t seen them anywhere though.

    Folks,
    What is not being discussed is the need for eye protection. When the flu is vaporized, the eyes become a point of entry.
