Emergency Supply Kits

There is no single Emergency Supply kit that is going to fit every situation. Your main consideration is the number of people you are going to be supporting as well as specific needs catered to your situation. Keep in mind that there could well be no electricity, no phone service, no water or sewage systems, and transportaion could be non existent. You and your group are on your own for three days and you need to be able to provide for that scenario. Below are several prepackaged supply kits and a list prepared by Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Recommended Items to Include in a Basic Emergency Supply Kit:

Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation

Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food

Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both

Flashlight and extra batteries

First aid kit

Whistle to signal for help

Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation

Cell phone with chargers

Additional Items to Consider Adding to an Emergency Supply Kit:

Prescription medications and glasses

Infant formula and diapers

Pet food and extra water for your pet

Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container

Cash or traveler's checks and change
