Grab & Go Tips
Prepare your own Go-Kit and keep it by your door. Include the following:
Cell phone & charger
Wallet w/ copies of ID and spare cash
If Time Allows
Change of clothes (includingsocks & underwear)
Jacket (or other warm layer)
Laptop & charger
Toothbrush & toothpaste
Full water bottle
Entertainment items (reading materials, cards, etc.)
Do NOT Bring
Valuable as they may be, the following things are not worth risking your life over:
- A large bag or container crammed with your possessions
- Sentimental items
Can I just buy one online?
We estimate that student "Go-Kits" will likely be cheaper to create on your own, as Westmont stores basic emergency supplies on campus (such as water, food, and first aid). However, many retailers sell pre-made emergency kits for those looking for a quick solution.
No pre-made kit will fit your needs exactly, so take the time to consider what additional items you'll want to add to any kit you buy. These online retailers offer various emergency supplies. These websites are offered as a point of reference, and Westmont does not assume any responsibility for the products these websites offer, nor do we encourage or endorse any one retailer.
