Be Prepared for Emergency With a “Go Bag”

Thursday August 7 at 5 PM, as part of KMUD’s Fire Awareness Month, the SHARC Report looks at “Go Bags.” Here in fire and earthquake country, you never know when you might have to evacuate your home, and you may only have minutes to pack. With a prepacked “Go Bag,” you know you’ve got the essentials, and you won’t forget them when you are under stress and time is short. On this month’s SHARC Report we’ll talk about “Go Bags”, and what you should keep in them so that you will have less to worry about in those stressful moments as you prepare to evacuate your home. Please tune in on Thursday Augest 7 at 5PM to learn about “Go Bags” on The SHARC Report. The SHARC Report is presented by the Southern Humboldt Amateur Radio Club in cooperation with KMUD Community Radio, and airs on the first Thursday of every month at 5pm on KMUD.
