Picture this: you start your day like any other, ready to tackle whatever comes your way. Lunch packed? Check. Backpack with snacks and coffee? Check. Medical supplies? Check. The weather report mentioned more snow than usual, but nothing you can’t handle, right? That’s what I thought before the Buffalo Blizzard turned everything upside down. As the day went on, the snow outside got heavier. Then, the announcement came: “Code Triage: External Natural Catastrophe.” It was time for all hands on deck until reinforcements arrived. At that moment, I realized I could have been better prepared. Now, I always keep a duffle bag in my car packed with essentials to handle any emergency confidently. Here’s what’s in my bag and what you might want to consider for yours:

Must-Have Emergency Essentials:

  1. Extra Clothes: Fresh scrubs, socks, and underwear to stay comfortable.
  2. Hygiene Kit: Toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant to keep you feeling fresh.
  3. Bottled Water and Caffeinated Drinks: Stay hydrated and alert with water and your favorite energy boosts.
  4. Protein Bars and Snacks: Quick, nutritious energy from trail mix, granola bars, and more.
  5. Extra Chargers: Ensure your phone and laptop are always powered.
  6. Headphones: Take a break, listen to music, or focus on a task.
  7. Pajamas and Sweatshirt: Comfort items for those unexpected overnight stays.
  8. Warm Blanket, Air Mattress, or Sleeping Bag: Be ready for anything, even a night at the hospital.
  9. Pillow: Because a good night’s sleep can make all the difference.
  10. Shovel: A must-have for those snowy days, especially in colder climates.

Stay Prepared and Positive:

  • Check the Weather Regularly: Stay ahead of the game by watching weather forecasts.
  • Stay Connected: Keep in touch with friends and family, letting them know you’re safe.
  • Support Each Other: Work as a team with your colleagues and look out for one another.
  • Keep a Positive Attitude: Remember, you’re resilient and capable of handling any challenge.
