Indispensable to any protection expert, the go bag is a mobile personal protection kit. it’s a piece of compact lightweight gear that you can hold in your hand, that affords you options to keep that 360-degree envelope of protection around you both inside and outside of a controlled area 365 days of the year.

Your Go Bag should be compact, lightweight and mobility functional. Every item in your go bag should bring you one step closer to keeping that protection envelope. Your go bag should be “mobility functional”, that is either one- or no-hands operation. it should be specifically designed by professionals for your personal protection. When necessary, it should be both airport and airplane-friendly so that you can keep it with you as a carry-on.

Your Go Bag should have loops on both ends to hang on any style door knob or hook, and should allow you hands-free carry over one shoulder, across the body, or as a fanny pack. It should be easy to store, ambidextrous, and allow you one-handed access to your gear.

Go Bag usage is quick and simple. If needed you can literally just “grab it and go!” When staying at a hotel you simply throw in your critical personal items – any medications, cell phone, wallet, glasses, etc., zip it up and hang it on the door knob. Should an emergency event occur in the middle of the night you can grab that one Go Bag which has everything you need in it to support maintaining your 360-degree Protection Envelope.

The Go Bag is something that can be given to your son or daughter who is leaving the nest or travelling overseas, and will provide them a recommended Physical Protection Tool that they can hold in their hands.

Contents of your Go Bag may include communication tools such as cell phone or  satellite phone, persons to contact, phone lists of a support network of individuals or organizations, language card (if working or living in a foreign country), and transportation and navigation information.

It should include illumination tools such as a flashlight and glow-sticks including easy-to-find replaceable batteries. It should also include any prescription medications, Epi-pens, asthma inhalers, list of allergies and any medical problems, copies of official documents such as your driver’s license, passport, credentials, some local currency in the form of cash and change, Emergency Action Planning information and even back-up credit cards.

Back-up lights are also strongly recommended. You should also have functional clips or carabineers, which can be used to clip keys to tabs and secure your light source to your gear, your body, or your environment.

Also include a back-up or local cell phone, extra cell phone batteries, and your multi-tool and/or pocket knife. To personalize your Go Bag, you may consider such items as a back-up pair of prescription glasses, a couple protein bars, your own water bottle, extra lithium or alkaline batteries, a dust and particle mask and even ear protection depending upon where you are traveling.

The key qualities of any Go Bag are for it to be useful, lightweight, compact, and easy to access and carry. Pack only the bare essentials you will need most for the environment in which you will most likely find yourself. Just as you check the oil on your car before going on a long road trip, it’s a good idea to check the contents of your Go Bag.
