In the case of potential disaster you need to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours. That means 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear needs to be available according to the minimum time recommended by various government sources. The 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear provided by Survival Kit is designed to support an average family of four for 3 days. It consists of emergency food, water and shelter, first aid and sanitation, lighting and communication supplies. An emergency blanket should be included and various essential tools like a hammer and screw driver and a whistle [believe it or not that might be an important item].

In the Ark III Survival kit 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear was valid until 2011: one of the questionable advantages of purchasing a fully fitted 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear kit is that all the limited shelf items expire together. Naturally, this would cut down on time when it comes to the twice yearly checks. It may, or may not, be cheaper to purchase items separately, especially as the Ark III only contains just 24oz of water: not very much water, even in an emergency. If you want a more upgraded product you can obtain an upmarket version, the Super Ark.

One of the advantages of purchasing a full-fledged 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear is that the food and water expire only after 5 years. One thing to remember is to keep the fully complete 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear near the door in the house, outside in a safe place in the yard, or even in your vehicle. Basic supplies in the basic kit needs to be a flashlight, together with appropriate batteries; a radio with batteries – or even one of those wind-up radios; a box of waterproof matches; an emergency blanket; four 125ml water pouches to the specification of the US Coast Guard and a 2400 calorie food bar, again US Coast Guard approved, both food and water approved for a five-year lifespan.

Other items that need to be considered in with the 72 hrs survival supplies food and gear are a pack of tissues, first aid kit, wet naps and something suitable for outdoor wear like an emergency poncho or waterproof fleece jacket. Add an N95 respirator mask, water treatment tablets, LED headlamp, and sanitation supplies similar to the chemicals used for those camping chemical toilet units. An in-depth survival box like the TrekkerTM, containing items such as these would make an acceptable wedding present or starter gift.

Food for Thought: Most of the time we are so engrossed in our daily routine that we hardly get time to think about unusual events, emergencies and disasters. They may come in any form, sometimes they are easily predictable while most of the times they are highly unpredictable. As generally seen, hurricanes and floods are some common natural disasters which give us advance notice or warnings, but other natural disasters and calamities give us no such warning sign like earthquakes and tornadoes. Some common occurrences like fires and attacks etc. can occur anytime, anywhere, so in such situations we may have to face several emergencies and challenges. These emergencies and challenges can overwhelmed not just you and your family but your clients, your business, your distant friends and even business partners residing in the affected areas. As a little gesture to the mankind, I have written several articles on this topic. Here you can learn about useful tips and techniques about disaster management and emergency preparedness.
