Personal or Home Emergency Survival Kits
Being prepared for an disaster begins with a personal emergency survival kit. They can vary from a pouch that you carry all the time to a home survival kit with 5 gallon water jugs and food for 7 days.
The following four kits are examples of what you can put together yourself. In an emergency, one of these kits can make the difference between safety and severe injury or death.
