What’s a SKIP kit? A SKIP (Safety Kept In Place) Kit is a small emergency kit, even smaller than a Grab-and-Go bag — just a few simple items in a ziptop bag, stashed wherever you spend time: under your desk (where you would Drop, Cover and Hold On); in a glove compartment; or in a purse/backpack, etc.

Any small item that that will help you stay safe, calm and comfortable in those first moments after something happens (for example, a whistle, flashlight, bandana, tissues, hand sanitizer, paper & pen) can go in your SKIP Kit.

Practice your creative thinking skills as you learn how to put together your own emergency kit with items you have around you, without spending a fortune.

This training is presented by CARD, Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disasters.
