72 Hour Kit - Top Ten List

We know that getting started on a 72 hour kit can be a daunting task, so here is a list (in order) of the top ten things you should have in your 72 hour kit. This has been revised from last year!
  1. Container (Backpack, rolling duffel bag, rubbermaid container, etc)
  2. Water (for 72 hours)
  3. Food/Medication (special consideration for infants/pets)
  4. Survival Supplies (shelter & omni tool)
  5. Vital Info/Documents
  6. Money (in small bills)
  7. First Aid Kit
  8. Flashlight/Batteries
  9. Toiletries/Change of Clothes
  10. AM/FM Radio/Batteries

A container is listed first, so that as you collect supplies you will have a designated place for everything. The first 4 items are a MUST! These will keep you alive for 3 days until help arrives.

Here are some other websites to get you started and motivated!
