Urban E&E/ Get Home Kit
Ryan here: First I want to note this is not a I want to to talk a little bit about the bag/ kit itself. To what you have discussed there I would consider the following:
-A city area map (the ones at any gas station) and a compass in a plastic bag.Walking is different than driving if you are going on a new (walking) route this is not the time to end up in the wrong place.
-Instead of MRE’s could you be better served with a box of granola bars or protein bars? Eating an MRE main meal on the go is a hassle. Maybe 1x MRE and the balance in more snack ish foods?
-Spare batteries for your flashlights and maybe a work radio.
-A ‘boo boo kit’ to keep you moving. You mentioned 15 miles. I’m guessing you have not walked 15 miles (which could easily be 20+ as you would actually walk it avoiding say a big ole riot) in awhile. Some Ibuprophen, moleskin, athletic tape and band aids will go a long way to keeping you moving. Also consider a few of those peptol bismol tablets and anything else you use regularly. This stuff is also useful for normal life. Why not have this bag serve some non SHTF use?
-We could always add little stuff. I would probably include a lighter, couple of glow sticks and a wad of 550 cord. I like these add on type things so long as the total bulk of this stuff does not become overwhelming (in bulk or expense) its good to have options.
-Some capacity to transport that carbine. To me in most situations where you are using this kit for its intended purpose (vs incidentally borrowing a band aid, etc) you might want that AR, if just for use later at your planned destination. There are expensive ($200+) bags that can do this but a cheap $20 gym bag or a folding chair bag can work just fine. If nothing else provided you have a minute take CRITICAL PARTS from both long guns like say the bolts.
Also while not directly related to the topic Paul Howe did an excellent article on Active Shooter Equipment that you might want to consider. A kit set up like this should sit in every patrol cruiser. You may already have that covered but I wanted to throw this article out there. A system like this in a claymore pouch could easily be the lethal and emergency medical pieces of a larger system.
None of these ideas are particularly expensive. Stuff to consider.
Obviously unless you have to for work being near a riot is a bad idea. Give any protests a wide berth. I think you are going to want to use your car if at all possible. They will take a lot of abuse and still work, if just for a little while. Speed is security. I would only move on foot if you had no other option. In that situation you can do the math on whether wearing a uniform helps or hurts you. I suspect it would be preferable to be in your good ole boy camouflage.
