What to Pack in an Emergency Bag

It can be hard to know what you need in an emergency. When an emergency situation arrives, you might be in a panic and not know what to grab in a hurry. If you live in a region prone to natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes or floods, it’s important that you keep an emergency bag on hand. Here are some items you should consider keeping in an emergency kit.

Emergency Bag

First Aid Kit

You never know what might happen in a natural disaster. If someone gets hurt, you’re going to want a first aid kit on hand. First aid kits with bandages, disinfectants and the like are as valuable as gold in a crisis scenario, so make sure you keep them with your emergency kit.

Dry Foods

It can be hard to say howl long you might go without food in an emergency. As such, it’s important you keep dry foods that can store for a long period with your emergency kit. Ideally you should only be keeping foods that can be prepared without cooking, such as granola bars and canned fruits, as you may not have access to a cooktop. Likewise, keep a can opener in the emergency kit for the canned foods.

Emergency Flares

Keep a set of emergency flares in case of an emergency with your kit. If you have no phone signal and you become stranded, you’ll want emergency flares to alert any nearby rescue crews to your location. This is especially true in flooding conditions where normal paths of egress could be cut off by floodwaters.

Portable Radio

A portable, battery-powered FM/AM radio is very useful in an emergency. Even if the power gets knocked out, your battery powered radio will still be able to pick up emergency broadcasts. This is a great way to hear about evacuation notices, rescue efforts and other important, official information in the event of a crisis scenario.
