You’ve probably heard of a Bug Out Bag (BOB) or a Get Out Of Dodge (GOOD) bag that can be used as a grab and go kit in case you have to leave an area during an emergency situation. At Practical Tactical, we urge our clients to build what we call a BOLT Kit. This mobile kit is based on the basic tenets of preparedness: shelter, water, food, fire, communications/defense and psychology…and is geared towards executing your plan that was developed based on the threats in your area and your individual circumstances.
What makes our BOLT Kit any different from every other Bug Out or GOOD Bag out there? A focused philosophy, that’s what. Bugging out, getting out of Dodge, emergency evacuation….they all mean essentially the same thing. Something’s gone down in your area, it is no longer safe for you to stay there and you have to leave your home in a hurry. This mobile kit will allow you to maintain your Basic Operations for a Limited Time as you BOLT to your next location that will hopefully be your safe haven from the immediate threat.
Our BOLT Kit Build Out class is designed to lay out the framework and offer a view through a preparedness prism that will allow you to build a practical and personalized BOLT Kit for every member of your family based on your individual situation and disaster plan.

We cannot control when, where or how disaster will strike, but we can control how prepared we are to deal with disaster. There is a fine line between order and chaos and sometimes that line can be measured in seconds. When every second counts, having a plan and the tools to see that plan through are crucial to survival. As the name implies, your BOLT Kit is the tactical advantage that will help get you through and past any emergency situation.
