In a Disaster its 72 Hours that make the Difference

[su_heading size=”20″]You Should Always Be Prepared For At Least 72 Hours After A Disaster[/su_heading]

These days, with governments advising that we should be self-reliant for at least the first 72 hours after a disaster, it’s absolutely essential that we have emergency supplies at our disposal.  Keep a kit on hand, in an accessible place, at home, in the car boat, or RV.

A complete kit should include food and water for 4 people, 4 survival blankets, 4 ponchos, first aid kit, leather work gloves, 4 goggles, 4 dust masks, and more.

An optimal kit contains enough emergency supplies to sustain 4 people for three days, as recommended by the American Red Cross. Each kit should have at least 4 water boxes, 3 day food supply, 4 emergency ponchos, 4 survival blankets, 4 12-hour light sticks, 4 pair nitrile gloves, 4 NIOSH N-95 dust masks, 4 dust masks, pocket tissues, emergency whistle, leather gloves, Multi-Tool, 10yds. Duct Tape, 4 pair goggles, 3 bio-hazard bags, pre-moistened towelettes, emergency communication plan/contacts, first aid kit that has 107 pieces, Emergency power station 4-function (flashlight, AM/FM radio, siren, cell phone charger) and a backpack or other easily grabbed storage bag.

Now you can build all of this yourself and that is fine. But we have found that purchasing a kit will probably save you time, money, and running all over finding the right stuff. We have found a few kits that are good but for a family we recommend the kit below.
