Some people have asked me what are the proper things to plan for in a 72 hour kit. I say put in what you want, but I've listed some basic ideas below that will greatly increase your chance of Survival. Be sure to plan ahead because during a catastrophe is the wrong time to plan.
Water - You and (of course) your family may be without water for days in the event of a calamity. It is standard to plan for one gallon of water each day per person for a minimum of three days. This supply will provide water for drinking in addition to simple cleaning as well as food preparation.
Personal Documents - You your household may be displaced after a disaster. Be certain you have all required documents with you - birth certificate, ID, passport, and also insurance plan. Additionally maintain an additional set of eye glasses, contact lenses, a walking stick, batteries, or other personal items you might need.
Medicines - When putting together a readiness package for you and also your family, keep in mind that pharmacies could be enclosed the wake of a catastrophe.

Likewise keep a list of all medicines and also dosages, allergies, physicians' names, and also neighboring health centers.
Radio - Your home, or even neighborhood, could be without power in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Keep a battery-powered or hand-crank radio in your 72 hour kit.

Contact Info - Keep a checklist of household telephone number and addresses in addition to a duplicate of your out-of-area unexpected emergency contact card in your 7s hour kit. Note that it is much easier making a long distance phone call instead of a local phone call after a disaster strikes.
