My Dear Extended Family and Friends,
Staying home or leaving in an emergency was discussed briefly in the original “Be Prepared” article,
and again in “Be Prepared – Leave or Stay in an Emergency”.
“Bugging Out” is an expression which likely originated during the Korean War and is used by military personnel for swiftly leaving. We may not always have the ability in an emergency to remain at home even if we had previously planned and prepared to do so. It is for this reason this topic needs to be addressed further. This is evident in this past week’s evacuation of nearly 200,000 people in Northern California in the path of the crumbling Oroville Dam.
