BUILDING AN EMERGENCY SURVIVAL KIT
Building an Emergency Survival Kit
Your emergency survival kit should have everything you and your family would need to be safe and take care of yourselves for at least three days immediately following an emergency.
The following list is broken down into the essentials, items you may need to meet your family’s unique needs, and items to have ready in case you have to leave your home.
WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR SURVIVAL KIT
Food (non-perishable and easy-to-prepare items, enough for 3 days) and a manual can opener
Bottled water (4 litres per person for each day)
Radio (crank or battery-run)
Candles and matches/lighter
Hand sanitizer or moist towelettes
Important papers (identification, contact lists, copies of prescriptions, etc.)
Extra car keys and cash
Whistle (to attract attention, if needed)
Zip-lock bag (to Keep things dry)
Items for babies and small children—diapers, formula, bottles, baby food, comfort items
Medical supplies and equipment
Pet food and supplies
Any other items specific to your family’s needs
Extra Supplies for Evacuation
Sleeping bags or blankets
Personal items (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, other toiletries)
Playing cards, travel games, other activities for children
Pack the contents of your kit in an easy-to-carry bag(s) or a case on wheels.
Store your kit in a place that is easy to reach, and ensure that everyone in your family knows where it is.
Your kit does not have to be built overnight. Spread your shopping over a few weeks. Purchase a few items every time you go to the store.
Your water supply is meant to cover what you would drink as well as what you might need for food preparation, hygiene and dishwashing.
Check and refresh your kit twice a year—when the clocks shift to/from daylight savings time is a good time. Check all expiry dates and replace food and water with a fresh supply. Check batteries and replace as needed.
Keep your cell phone or mobile device fully charged
