Most people are familiar with an emergency kit for their car, but not with emergency survival kits. When A disaster strikes you need to be prepared to keep yourself and your family safe. At times like these, all you need to do is to pack emergency survival gear.
Bag – The bag itself should be light, durable, and comfortable. At the same time, it is cheap and easily accessible to carry out your needed items. You can get the ultimate survival bag at an affordable price by browsing online.
Water – You should have four 8 oz. bottles of water in the bag at a minimum. It is also a good idea to include a water filter bottle, commonly used by hikers.
Food – You should count on three days worth of food. The trick is to store food that is consumable on the go with little preparation but won't go bad during the months that it is stored. Ideally, you would have a mix of MREs, emergency ration bars, and even some no-cook canned goods.
Raingear – Once you get wet, you will soon get cold, sick, and demoralized. At a minimum, you should get a rain poncho but ideally, you would have a full rain suit in your bag. They are cheap and readily available at any drugstore, sporting goods shop, or major retailer.
Clothes – On the move, you will get sweaty and dirty. You need to have at least one more set of socks, a t-shirt, and briefs in your bag to swap out as needed.
Radio – You'll need to stay informed about the disaster and the impacts affecting your route home. Get a cheap radio with batteries or a hand-crank.
