B e prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least three days, maybe longer. While there are many things that might make you more comfortable, think rst about fresh water, food and clean air. Recommended Supplies to Include in a Basic Kit:

  • Water one gallon per person per day, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered radio and extra batteries
  • Cell phone and charger, perhaps solar powered
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First Aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Filter mask or cotton t-shirt, to help filter the air
  • Moist towelettes for sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food ( if kit contains canned food )
  • Plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Unique family needs, such as daily prescription medications, infant formula or diapers, and important family documents

Consider two kits. In one, put everything you will need to stay where you are and make it on your own. The other should be a lightweight, smaller version you can take with you if you have to get away.
