With regular large scale disasters already common in North America, it’s a good time to talk a bit about disaster preparation and how a 5 gallon bucket can help provide some good physical insurance against a catastrophic situation. A well designed emergency kit will contain the best bits of modern technology and healthcare packaged neatly in a carryable 5 gallon bucket. The simplest way to invest in your five gallon insurance plan is to get your hands on a professionally built kit. These pieces of kit weren’t included in the example bucket build above but are listed here by popular demand. The food suply kits they show on the christian shows that are made to last for 25 years or so are very expensive. My personal doctor, and the ER staff says that a tampon or maxi pad, in an emergency, is the best thing(s) to use. Or you could just hang it from the wire handle of the bucket and still be able to use it like normal. I just went through alot of the replies and would add the following – instead of putting otc pills in ziplock bags, go to a dollar store or Wal Mart and get a few bottles of each.
The bucket itself is a wonderful survival tool (carry water, make a water filter, for gathering and foraging, portable potty, and lots of other uses).
Add in a roll of thick trash bags too and pieces of funnoodle that have been split part way. If someone has to be told not to poop in their water bucket, they aren’t going to survive 24 hrs.
If you stack two buckets together, chances are you’ll never get the sun bitches apart.

First of all, it gives you a certain intimacy with your kit – you know exactly what’s in there because you were the one who researched it and put it in there!
At the end of this post is a list of every single item you see here so you can make this exact emergency kit for yourself. On the back is a list of important phone numbers such as relatives, insurance companies, local law enforcement, fire department, etc. You can download this list in an editable Word format by clicking here: 5 Gallon Bucket Emergency Kit It may be instructive to compare this list with the much higher calorie emergency kit from Mayday disaster preparation company. Moist towelettes and antiseptic towelettes and latex gloves kept on top so you can clean your hands before digging through supplies. Place the lint inside the roll and if you needed an emergency fire, this would be a good starter. No where on the box does it makes this claim and it would be illegal and dangerous to not list it. Only facts I found from research regarding chemicals added to some of these products are deodorizing perfume, & the pesticides used while growing the cotton filler. I had a surgical wound on my inner thigh and the Dr’s office used a maxi pad as a bandage. Of course if you have better, use better… but they should definately be included in the first aide kit.
If you want to take your chance with an open bullet wound, or other gushing wound, by all means go ahead. They are bleached and have a million terrible chemicals in them that could cause rashes, blisters and other skin issues that you would not want on top of having a wound. Prepared kits will usually contain both food and water (or water purification) and general emergency supplies such as flashlights and first aid.


Humans usually need at least 2,000 calories every single day – which adds up really fast. Here’s one popular emergency kit that condenses survival supplies for a family of 4 inside a single 5 gallon bucket. Depending on your anticipated needs, you may want one or several food-geared buckets in addition to your emergency supply kit. I continued using them as the wound got smaller and even went to the think panty liners later.
At these stores otc generics are cheap and these pill bottles are all very small and light weight, and could prove invaluable.
That’s why an EpiPen is a critically important part of our emergency supply but might not be relevant at all for other families.
I’ve linked some of the more unusual items that you might not find at your neighborhood hardware store. I would also have some seed packets in ziplock bags or old pill bottles in case the situation becomes long term.
There is a lot of good info in the comments – some from people who went through actual disasters and shared their experiences.
You’ll be able to include many household materials you already have, and you can get a better deal on the items you do need to buy by cutting out the middleman.
