Bug Out Bag Essentials for Beginners

Bug Out Bags have many aliases: 72 Hour Kit, Prepper Backpack, Emergency Bag, Survival Bag, BOB, SHTF Bag, and a few other names I’m forgetting.  Why is it called a Bug Out Bag?  Google’s definition of the term “Bug Out” means to “leave quickly” which is exactly what these bags are meant for.  

Question:  Why is it important to have a Bug Out Bag or 72 Hour Kit?
Answer:  In the midst of disaster it is too late to start gathering supplies to evacuate. Gathering adequate supplies for you & your family takes more time and consideration than you might think.  Having Bug Out Bag essentials set aside in your home is recommended by Federal Emergency Agencies.
