Emergency Survival Kit

Your home’s emergency survival kit should have enough supplies to look after your own family’s needs for up to 7 days. To save time, you may want to prepare an emergency food and water kit, first aid kit, and an emergency car kit as well.

To create your own home emergency survival kit, gather the following items and store them in a duffel bag, backpack or closet shelf until needed:

  • AM/FM radio (and extra batteries if not a hand-powered radio)
  • Baby supplies, if required (disposable diapers, bottled milk, baby food, toys, crayons, and paper)
  • Blankets or sleeping bags (one per person)
  • Candles
  • Cash (include coins/cards for payphones)
  • Clothing and footwear (one change of clothes per person)
  • Flashlight (and extra batteries if not hand-powered flashlight)
  • First-aid kit with over-the-counter medications in the event of a pandemic
  • Food and bottled water
  • Important papers (copies of personal documents and identification papers)
  • Matches or lighter
  • Prescription medication required by any family member (1 week supply & copy of prescription).
  • Pet supplies, if required (food, medications, toys)
  • Playing cards, games & books
  • Plastic bucket with lid (for latrine)
  • Spare set of car keys
  • Spare set of glasses and prescription, if required
  • Toilet paper and other personal supplies
