Emergency Survival Kits – Bug Out Bags

The message used to be 72 hours, but we’ve seen in disasters like Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy, that wipes out your infrastructure, your electricity grid and your communications. It will be very likely be more than three days before you start getting food, water and other supplies coming in from outside – Plan for at least a week. You can’t rely on the government to protect you!

Having personally experienced one of the worst winter ice storm in North Carolina history (5 days without power), and the longest power outage in West Virginia (14 days without power), and the Northern California Loma Prieta Earthquake, 7.2, of 1989, I can share first hand what its like to be without power for many days – At home and on the road.

We’ve learned a lot of lessons during these massive power outages – some good, others not so good. You can read all the Survival Books you want, but there’s nothing like first hand survival experience to put everything into perspective – You Are On Your Own.

Portable Police Scanner Radio

We highly recommend the BC75XLT Police Scanner Radio (Photo: Right). When my power was cut off during a winter Ice Storm for almost a week, I was trapped inside my home and cutoff from the outside world. The local radio stations were off the air, my cell phone battery was dead, and my phone wire (phone and internet) was buried under the ice. The only form of outside communication was my BC75XLT Police Scanner Radio. I could hear my Local and State Police, Fire & Rescue, Ambulance and the National Weather Service. I knew help was on the way, long before it actually arrived, and that gave me hope!

• Police Scanner Radio: 2 AA Lithium Batteries or 2 AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries.

Emergency Water Supplies
Emergency Bottled Water

Emergency Bottled Water

I live in the rural mountains of Western North Carolina. When I loose my power, I loose my well water pump, which means you can’t bathe or flush the toilets.

Having enough bottled water on hand is a TOP PRIORITY in any emergency situation. The general rule is a minimum of one gallon of water per person, per day. That’s a lot of water. It’s heavy and takes up a lot of space. We store 1 gallon bottles in leak proof plastic bins and mark the expiration dates on the bottles.

We store 5 Gallon Water Buckets for flushing the toilets under the house.
