HOW TO: Build an Emergency Supply Disaster Kit

In this How-To Series, we'll be explaining how to quickly and easily build your at-home emergency supply disaster kit. These will cover just the basics -- you will probably want to adjust based on your individual needs.

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:
  1. Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  2. Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  3. Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  4. Flashlight and extra batteries
  5. First aid kit
  6. Whistle to signal for help
  7. Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  8. Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  9. Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  10. Manual can opener for food
  11. Local maps
  12. Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
