3.1 Purpose of the Go Kit

  • The Go-Kit is designed to contain information the BET needs to provide to emergency responders.
  • The Go-Kit should not be necessary for minor spills remediated by the OSRT.

3.1.1 Location of the Go-Kit

  • The location of the Go-Kit should be recorded in the space provided on page three.
  • The location of the Go-Kit should be known to all BET members.
  • Ideally there should be two kits. One Go-Kit should be placed in a Knox Box located at an entrance to the building. The second Go-Kit should remain with the BET leader or in a common area known to BET members. Both the BET and Public Safety should have a key to the Knox Box and know of its location.
  • Many of the items listed in the Go-Kit are duplicated in the emergency preparedness plan. This is intentional so that information is more readily available for the BET. The Go-Kit list is not all inclusive. Each BET should decide if additional items are needed.

3.1.2 Go Kit Contents

Items for the Go-Kit should be gathered together into an accordion folder or similar storage container, and placed where they will be readily available in case of an emergency.
