Emergency Kits

I went to a meeting about earthquake preparedness yesterday.  Do you have a grab-and-go disaster kit made up?  What about a hunker-down-for-a-few-days kind of kit? Or are you the type that has a bunker full of food and supplies?

I’m curious to know what you consider essential in an emergency – short term and long.  Now that I know I’m living right on top of a major fault line that is due to become seismically active soon, I bought a backpack suitable for 4 people.  I also posted one here that’s available on Amazon in case you want one that’s ready made.

Just go down to the Comment area and click it.

One thought on “Emergency Kits”

  1. My garage is detached from the house, so I have my camping equipment there instead of in the basement. I figure I have no chance of getting anything out of my basement in an earthquake. But I should make up something for my car. I’d make sure that there is water, water tablets, first aide, etc. But I also think that a bottle of gin or vodka (not just for drinking – as antiseptic too) and chocolate for comfort are key. Oh, and pet food for my animals. And giant multiple backpacks to carry it all.
