One thing that many people talk about is a 72-hour kit. If you have
to run out of the house (fire, etc) what will you need for that 72
hours following disaster.

In addition to your 72 hour kit,
keep a written list of information including family and important
contacts, emergency bug-out-plan, and encrypted information of your
insurance and financial accounts. Record this information in a small
spiral notepad that you can keep dry in a zip lock bag.
Many times when people are prepping for a 72 hour kit they forget important documents.

Also, a list of 55 items you should hoard – which DID NOT include pet supplies…

possible.

17. Aluminum Foil WrapLits of items thet you should have for disasters and collapse Ir?t=modesurvblog-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001R2NM5U&camp=217145&creative=399373. Good for cooking and many other uses.

tool chest.

21. Small hardware. Nails, screws, hooks, wires, etc. Store in clear jars with lids or in original packages.

22. 5 or 6 gallon plastic gas containers. Can be used for gas or other fuels as well as for water that are durable.

23. Magnifying glasses. Use to see small items, main use to start fire if matches are wet or out of them.

24. Envelopes. All sizes for storage. Smaller for
seeds you can get from the wild as one example. Tough postal envelopes
are also good for storage after a disaster.

25. Empty boxes. You are really going to need this
if you have to suddenly move somewhere quick for clothes and other
items. Many grocery stores will give you free fruit boxes that are
sturdy and have lids. Also large plastic boxes with lids. Try to store
empty boxes within the empty spaces of each other.

26. Shoe laces. Many people have shoes that are
still wearable and need shoe laces. Shoe laces are also good for tying
off material with other purposes.

27. Paper plates, plastic eating utensils, disposaable drinking glasses and cups. IF you can store enough, excellent way to save your soap supplies by not having to wash the dishes.

28. Bedding. Blankets, sheets, pillows, pillow cases. Just because you are in emergency does not mean you have to live like a refuge.

29. Bathroom towels. All sizes from hand to bath. You will be very grateful to be able to dry yourself off with something you are use to.

30. Fishing line and string. Lots of uses.

31. Nylon rope, cord, clothes lines. Do not be without.

32. Dental needs. Toothbrushes, dental floss. Even without toothpaste you can still keep your teeth healthy.

34. Honey. Lasts practically forever and a good sweetener for many foods.

35. Spray bottles. Use to disperse insect repellent as one of many uses.

36. First aid kit. Most items such as bandages, gauze, tweezers, nail clippers, scissors, wrapping tape, etc. can be stored without rotating.

37. Newspaper. Yes, newspaper for starting fires, wrapping delicate items, insulation. Keep dry and preferably in sealed boxes.

38. Safety pins. Fastening of almost anything that has broken. Bobby pins also good.

39. Sunglasses. You will really need to protect your eyes after an emergency, glare is something that people forget about
if they have to be outdoors for extended periods of time.

40. Hats. One size fits all baseball type caps, scarfs, ski caps. A lot of heat is lost through an uncovered head, also sunburn.

41. Gloves. So important from keeping hands warm to protection of your hands from hazards such as broken glass.

42. Extra clothes that you will not wear other than after a disaster. Don’t forget the extra comfortable shoes, socks, underwear, warm
jackets.

43. Small hand held mirrors. For signaling but also for personal grooming and seeing what your eyes can’t without a mirror.

44. Cloth grocery bags with handles. A very good way of collecting usable things such as food from the wild.

45. Stapler with plenty of staples. Also paper clips to seal off small items and fastening paper. Your package of survival seeds as for
example.

46. Electric extension cords. You may actually still
have electricity from some source such as a generator. Can be used as a
substitute for light duty style rope also.

47. Brushes. From nail, paint, to hair brushes. One good use for a hair brush is removal of ticks, fleas, burrs, from clothing.

48. Measurement devices. Tape measurers, rulers, very important to know distances, how big, how small something is rather than guessing.

49. Games. Boredom is awful, and a simple deck of cards, or something to take up time if confined after an emergency.

50. Books, Books. Anything that will give you
information and instructions on survival, cooking, plant identification,
map books. Your bookcase may not be around after a disaster, store
information you will need someday.

51. Wind up clocks and watches. Your battery operate clocks and watches or other time telling instruments are someday not going to
work. Wind up clock better than using a sundial.

52. Snap top plastic containers. Ziploc, Tupperware, anything that can air seal something. All sizes.

53. Stick on notes. Use to label what you have after the disaster. Secure it better with scotch tape if you want.

54. Money. If you can store it somewhere and forget
about it and not spend it other then in emergency. Cash money may be the
only way to buy anything after a disaster that has not taken out the
monetary system.

55. Plastic tarps. Many sizes and inexpensive. Cannot emphasize how many uses these have, and can be folded up and stored in smaller spaces.
ALSO....

SHARPIE PENS: Write on your cans of food what is inside…in case the
labels become wet and fall off..this will help immensely when eating
from cans…and for bartering with them.

MAPS!! In case you have to “hoof it” out of where you are, you can
avoid the major roads and go overland. Get Forest Service Maps of the
local public lands. There are hundreds of thousands of miles of dirt
roads in the nations forests. Learn how to use a compass and how to read
a topographical map.

DUCT TAPE; In Alaska, it is called “hundred mile an hour tape” = you
can fix a bushplane wing with it, and can fly up to 100 mph before the
tape will blow off. IT has thousands of uses down here, too.

STOCK PILE PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES….IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN. TRY OFF-SHORE
PHARMACIES IF YOUR HMO or DOCTOR WON’T HELP YOU. You can’t be any
help to your family if they’re trying to keep you alive or
healthy..you’ll become a liability instead of an asset.

FIRE STARTER KIT—matches, lighters, etc. Learn how to start a fire BEFORE your survival depends on it.

WATER: it’s every bit as important as you can imagine. It bears
repeating. SAFE WATER can either be boiled or sterilized. CHLORINE
BLEACH or CHLORINE GRANULES (spa or swimming pool supplies) can be used.
Learn how much to use. Be careful with this product; it can be
dangerous. Use the sharpie pen to label it as dangerous/poison –see?
you’re already using that sharpie pen!!

CHLORINE BLEACH : cleans things, including blood spills from others. Yuk.

LEATHERMAN TOOL, Buck Knife, Machete.Ax or Hatchet.

FIRE ARMS: you can feed your family with a .22 rifle and at the very least, you can feed your dogs and cats with small game.

FIRST AID KIT

PET SUPPLIES:

READING: Survival Guides and Self-help books

BINOCULARS: I can’t stress this enough, it goes along with the fire
arms requirement…you’ll need to spot other people before they spot you.
You’ll need to assess their intentions before they come too close. Be
careful. In a perfect world, everybody would behave nicely. The world is
not perfect.

Fishing gear: hooks and line,,,weights and tackle…you can bet that game wardens will be too busy to enforce catch limits..

LEARN HOW TO DRY MEATS and make JERKY…

In short, if you have any camping equipment and experience, you’re
better off than your cousins who don’t. Think of survival as a long
camping trip. With consequences.
And skills that will be needed:
1. Plumbers

2. farmers/gardeners (obviously)
3. Doctors / Nurse / EMT
4. hunters / trappers
5. carpenters
6. mechanics
7. Coopers (barrels & wheels)
8. Blacksmith / metallurgists
9. Chemists
10. Ex special forces and career combat infantryman. No cops. The badge no longer means a damn thing.
11. Electrician (one can hope)
12. Arborist (cultivation of fruit & nut trees)
13. Pharmacist/herbalist when you are sick you’ll give both of them a shot at it.
14. Masons/bricklayers
15. Potterists
(is that a word?) Makers of ceramics & pottery
16. Opticians! Hopefully with some manual equipment to shape lenses.
17. A dentist / dental technicians.
18. Midwives
19. Armorers /Gunsmiths
