We had survival instructor/fire fighter/retired SERE instructor Terry Barney go over what he carries in his “Get Home Bag” a few articles ago. He recently did a video showcasing some of the items he talked about as well as a few additions. In the video he cover’s what his Emergency Vehicle Kit consists of. Every one has a preference and an opinion so share with us what you carry in your vehicle for “what if” scenarios or emergencies. Hopefully we can all learn a little some thing that will help us improve our personal kits, car kits and home preparedness kits. Be safe.
Check out our latest LoadOut feature with some of our popular bags.
About Terry Barney
A former USAF Survival Instructor, Terry Barney has taught hundreds of DOD personnel and civilians combat and non-combat survival skills. He cut his teeth in the Boundary Waters and Quetico Canoe areas, taking crews deep into the woods and covering over 1,500 miles with pack and paddle. It was here he took training from Mors Kochanski and Tom Lutyens, and became a Winter Camping Instructor for the BSA.
Barney joined the US Air Force and passed the rigorous training necessary to become a Survival Instructor (now referred to as SERE Specialist). It was in the military where Barney honed his bushcraft skill set, learning how to survive in different environments, to evade capture, resist enemy interrogations, and escape captivity.
After serving his country, Barney was hired by the Omaha Fire Department where he is currently employed full-time. Terry has continued his training and is certified in HazMat, Rope Rescue, Public Safety/Rescue diver, Confined Space Rescue, Structural Collapse Tech, and Swift Water Rescue. A certified Paramedic, Barney has conducted training for Omaha Police SWAT, FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Team NETF-1, and fire departments around the nation.
In 2010, Barney opened the Midwest School of Bushcraft. He has traveled to many parts of the country and has trained hundreds of people. He has a popular YouTube channel and is an instructor at 88 Tactical.
