In a crisis, my goals are:
1. survive the immediate crisis (shock-wave, fire, dust cloud, etc).
2. Shelter in place until I can risk going home to my family-group (which includes neighbors, friends, and children and elderly who will be brought to
3. Travel home to meet up with my people.
I have some supplies in my workplace, where they are unnoticed / unremarkable, including the water jugs for the water coolers in the workplace. Since
most workers bring their own lunches, it is acceptable for me to store food in my locker, even if the amount is quite large--30 to 40 meals!
I have a GH kit in my vehicle; it fits in with the culture at work for me to keep fishing/camping gear in my vehicle. I also have a firearm and a
backpack. I would end up assembling a get-home bag from components of my sporting gear, if the vehicle became inoperable.
I have several routes home mapped out, which would take me through safe neighborhoods. Most of it is corporate office parks; there would probably a
low incidence of mayhem for the first few hours in this area, since most people would be leaving rather than traversing the area. While many workers
rely on mass transit, I cannot due to my route. In any event, most other workers would be trying to make it to a transit station, while I can choose
from multiple low-speed low density drives home.
