Go Kit Checklist
The Go Kit Checklist for a nuclear power plant accident, a nuclear bomb, or both, is modified from the “Disaster Supplies Kit” developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross.
While a Go Kit is a smart precautionary measure, staying inside during a nuclear disaster may be the best option. In all scenarios, having the materials listed in the Go Kit is worth considering.
Unfortunately, the EMP or electromagnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion may damage your computer and other electronic equipment. This checklist will help you assist your family and others following a nuclear attack or any other disaster. Have needed materials ready to go by establishing a family disaster plan to make an absolutely chaotic situation more manageable. The key items that you should have in your disaster kit are: water, food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies, and special items.
Print this information and keep the items that you would most likely need during an evacuation in an easy-to carry container.
