• Packing a Bug Out Bag for Seniors

    If you or someone you love is a senior citizen, you need to put some special items in a bug out bag. These items will ensure that seniors are safe and comfortable during a disaster.

    Adult diapers are a good addition to a senior’s bug out bag. Even if the senior does not currently need adult diapers, add them into the bag, since you do not know when disaster will strike.

    A magnifying glass is another great item. Seniors’ eyes aren’t what they used to be, so this can help them see items.

    You also need to include items to keep senior citizens warm. Hand warmers and additional blankets will keep them warm in the cold weather. Remember that seniors get cold faster than others do, so even if you are comfortable, a senior citizen may be freezing.

    Be sure to add these items into the bug out bag so your senior family members will be safe and comfortable.
