Prepare for an Emergency: Go-Bag and 72-Hour Kit
Every day there is a possibility of a sudden departure from an overseas post due to political unrest, natural disaster, a death in the family, divorce, a family member in crisis, or a medical emergency.
There are many ways to prepare for the unexpected and a good place to start is by reading FLO’s Personal Preparedness Plan for tips on creating your plan. FLO also provides a checklist for preparing a Go-Bag and a 72 Hour Emergency Kit.
