Go kits are made to assure that your employees will be safe and have what they need in case of an emergency or evacuation order.

A “Go Kit” Should Include:

  • Backup of critical files on a thumb drive or other media
  • Quick reference card with instructions for shutting down systems before evacuation, if necessary
  • Extra equipment or a quick reference card with a list of equipment to be evacuated
  • Staff contact list
  • Flashlights and extra batteries
  • First aid kits
  • Whistle
  • Dust or filter masks
  • Moist towelettes or hand sanitizer
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Battery powered radio with extra batteries
  • NOAA Emergency Alert Radio with extra batteries

Think about anything else you may need when relocating your critical operations. Consider what could be pre-positioned in your alternate facility.

Your Go Kit will need to be updated periodically. Make it part of your annual inventory, or another process that you do regularly.
