Survival Supplies–Don’t Overlook the Basic Three Day Survival Kit

I read a blog post from someone who apparently touches on the subject of preparedness only occasionally, but he made an excellent point that serves as a good reminder for all of us. Namely, do you have a three day survival kit ready?

As this blogger noted, it’s possible to focus on “the end of the world as we know it” (TEOTWAWKI) and overlook the need to be ready for storms and the like. FEMA, the Red Cross, and others all recommend having a minimum of supplies to get you through 72 hours.

I was amused by the ramblings of another blogger who said he had more than one three day kit and wondered if he was obsessing about preparedness. I certainly don’t think so, since he had one for home, car, and work, and each was equipped with items specific for each place.

Companies featured on the Survival Kits & Essential Supplies in the Prep Mart carry ready made 72 hour kits for home, school, work, the car, and even for pets. You can buy kits for one person on up to 20 people. Having survival supplies in a backpack is a practical idea, too.

The bottom line: don’t overlook having three day survival kits for you and your family for home and away.
