A bug out bag, also known as a 72-hour kit or emergency evacuation kit, is a portable collection of supplies and tools that can help you survive for a few days in the event of an emergency. It's called a bug out bag because it's designed to help you "bug out" or evacuate quickly and safely from a disaster or crisis.
There are many different types of emergencies that could necessitate the use of a bug out bag, such as natural disasters (e.g. hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes), man-made disasters (e.g. terrorist attacks, civil unrest), or personal emergencies (e.g. car breakdown, injury). Regardless of the specific type of emergency, a bug out bag can provide you with the essential supplies and tools you need to stay safe and comfortable until you can reach a more secure location or until help arrives.
Acute Radiation Sickness
Acute radiation sickness, also known as radiation poisoning or radiation injury, is a type of illness that occurs when a person is exposed to a high dose of ionizing radiation in a short period of time. Ionizing radiation is a type of energy that can be harmful to the body because it has enough energy to remove tightly bound electrons from atoms, which can cause damage to the DNA in cells and potentially lead to cell death or mutations.
There are several sources of ionizing radiation, including medical procedures such as x-rays and cancer radiation therapy, nuclear accidents or bombings, and exposure to certain materials, such as radon gas and radioactive isotopes.
