What to Keep In Short Term Disaster Bag

Like I said in a previous post, There is no one size fits all bag, neither are the contents. The building of your bag is a personal project and should reflect your personal needs. I personally don’t think it is a good idea to go buy a cute little pre-configured “Survival Bag”. Here is a list of items to consider, you don’t have to pack everything, Choose what’s right for you. Click next to each for an example

  1. Small AM / FM Radio Preferably Solar Powered Like This One
  2. Batteries Large to Small (don’t pack ones you don’t need)
  3. Bar of Soap (unscented) eg Ivory
  4. Toothbrush Like This One
  5. 2 pairs of clothes
  6. Pair of Work gloves. Like These
  7. Cold Weather Gloves Like These
  8. Canteens, covers and cups Like This One
  9. Pocket Knife. Like This One
  10. Tactical or Boot knife. Like This One
  11. Sleeping Bag. Like This One
  12. Emergency Blankets Like These
  13. Waterproof Matches. Like These
  14. Spoon and Fork Like This One

This list is only the beginning, it could go on and on. You could include things like an mp3 player or bible. Just depends on your preferences and needs. These bags are really only meant to be temporary for short term disasters that require you to leave your home. You will never be able to live out of your bag forever. So additional preparations for long term may be needed.
