THREE DAYS OF SUPPLIES
1 Gallon Water: per-person per-day. A collapsible container would be good to have to get more if needed for drinking,cooking and sanitization. A water filter in case water is contaminated in a emergency.If there is only one thing we get on this emergency survival list it is water!! We can do with out lots of things for a few days but water is not one of them.
Non-Perishable Food :This needs to be easy to prepare and nutritional.Make sure to have what we need to prepare and serve.
- Camp stove and fuel
- Matches or lighter
- Fire Extinguisher
Medication:We don’t want to be sick or not feeling well in a emergency. Stay Strong!!
Weather Radio: Battery operated,solar power and hand cranked.
- Spare Batteries
First Aid Kit: Dust mask and a whistle to get attention for help.
First aid book:
Cash: Atm’s may not work in a emergency .We might need to buy emergency supplies from someone that only takes cash.
- Bank account’s

- Paper and pencil
Tools: Maybe build a shelter,work on car or whatever.
Shelter: Tent etc.
Clothing: Rain coats or poncho
This is a start to being prepared
Each person or family will have a very personalized need depending on size,age,and climate they live in.In 2007 we had an ice storm and sub zero temp.s We lost our electric power for 14 days. I did not have some of the things on this list. The stores sold out a of lot of what i needed in a matter of hours.No batteries,candles,flashlights or propane bottles.No camp stoves or propane heaters.To name a few.
Have a peace of mind Just Be Ready..
I would like to know what you have in your emergency kit??
Have a nice day Joe
