72 Hour Emergency Kit


Your DGB for today is to prepare a 72 hour kit, in case of emergency.

There have been too many natural disasters lately and DGB wants you to be prepared for the worst. Whether you plan to weather the disaster or storm in place, evacuate to a shelter, or head for the hills, you need to be prepared.

A 72 hour kit can get your through the crucial hours and days following a natural disaster, when it’s often the most difficult to get help or go out and buy supplies. It’s crucial your 72 hour kit is easy to transport and if you live in an area prone to flooding, try to get a watertight container. Follow this handy guide for your 72 hour kit and let us know if you have any other ideas to keep Grabbers safe.

Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to be prepared for a disaster. Get your 72 hour kit together and review our previous Preppers guide. You never know when it might be you needing to evacuate.


Things are Fine

Your DGB for today is to make sure you are prepared for the possibility of a nuclear war.

Sometimes we at DGB spend hours getting lost in our daydreams of what the world would currently be like if Hillary Clinton was president. One thing we know for certain is that we wouldn’t be terrified of her starting World War III over Twitter. North Korea has a goddamn nuke ready and Trump and Kim Jong Un are about to start the Battle of the Bad Hair.

Instead of sitting around and waiting for imminent death, we need you guys to suit up and get ready for a post-apocalyptic world. Review our two previous grabs on prepping here and here. We also suggest you take our advice and get some Plan B. Another good suggestion is to label any prescription meds with what they’re for. After you are done doing all this, we suggest watching a cheerful movie and breathing deeply and evenly into a paper bag.

We don’t mean to be all doom and gloom, and there is a good chance that calmer heads will prevail and we won’t enter into a nuclear war. One thing we do know is that nothing is certain and it never hurts to prepare, whether that be for the war to end all wars, or just your run of the mill zombie apocalypse.


Prepare for the Apocalypse - Or Maybe Just a Bad Storm

Your DGB for today is to fortify your family’s self-sufficiency by preparing for an emergency.

Whether it be because a severe ice storm has downed power lines, or a flood has left roads impassable, sometimes you and your family might be on your own for a few days, and we want to make sure you’re prepared. The CDC has a great checklist for building an emergency preparedness kit. It might look daunting, but it’s actually pretty easy and you don’t need to assemble it all at once. 

Step one is to print out the CDC’s list and check off all the items you already have. You’re probably already halfway there! Step two is the most important one, and that’s to build up a supply of clean water, either by buying bottled water or filling up the specified containers from the tap. Step three is to begin to build up your food supplies. Start by buying a bag of rice, an extra can of beans, and a jar of peanut butter next time you’re grocery shopping and you’ll be done before you know it.

Work down the rest of the list when you can. The next time the National Weather Service announces that a storm is barreling your way or that the dead walk among us, you can rest easy: you got this.
