Bugging-out, how do you know when its time to go


Leaving your home or bugging-out during a disaster should be a last resort, but you may have to if things become life-threatening.

So when should you go?

Obviously, you should go when a disaster is about to wipe out your home; after all, the number one way to survive a disaster is by moving out of its way. But what about a tragedy that leaves your home intact?

What then?

Here are a few signs to go by.

Power is out

The disaster is local; crews are working to restore power, and neighbors are working together.

This is not the time to leave. Work with your neighbors to protect your street.

Power is out

The disaster is widespread, crews are not working in your area to restore power, but neighbors are working together. And relief agencies have set up supply stations for food and water.

A situation like this is a toss-up. If you have a retreat location, you could go. Or you could stay and work with your neighbors.

This is the time to leave if you have a retreat location. But it may be better to stay home if you do not. Moving to a hidden safe room will be your best bet if you have one.
