(NaturalNews) The Treasury Department is looking to buy survival kits for all of its employees who are proprietors of the federal banking system, according to a new government solicitation posted online.
As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (FB), the emergency goods and supplies are for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller and Currency — the OCC — which is in charge of conducting on-site reviews and audits of banks around the nation.
According to the solicitation, each survival kit contains everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets. And the government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, the solicitation says [which can be viewed here in PDF format: FreeBeacon.com].
The FB noted that the Treasury Department specified that the kits come in either a fanny pack or backpack that can hold all of the requested items, which include a 33-piece personal first aid kit containing “decongestant tablets,” many different bandages and other medicines.
