A Survival Kit For At Work

September 4, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

You spend much of your day away from home while ‘at work’. Do you keep a survival kit of sorts at work? Some people keep a ’72 hour kit’ in their vehicle (highly recommended) which could serve as a survival kit for ‘at work’, however it may be a good idea to tailor a specific emergency kit to be kept at work – in a drawer, in your desk, wherever you have a bit of personal space…

Why? Because you never know when you might be temporarily stranded there.

Here are a number of ideas (suggestions) for what you might keep at work to comprise a ‘survival kit’ or ’emergency kit’.


 

List Of Things To Keep At Work For Emergency – Survival Kit

 
Ready-to-eat foods that do not require cooking.
Canned foods can be eaten without cooking. Consider pull-top cans.
Keep a manually operated hand can-opener.
Canned meats such as Beef, Chicken.
Dried ‘Jerky’.

Energy food bars.
Quarters and dollar bills for the snack (vending) machine.

Bottled water.
Small water filter.
Chocolate bars (energy food).

Glow-sticks (several).
A local street (and regional) map, and a planned route to get out, or home.

A blanket, in case you have to sleep there.
