The Public Safety Department of the Canadian Government strongly suggests that every Canadian household have quick access to their own complete 72 hour emergency kit. Because if you unexpectedly have to evacuate or get away for any reason, or if you are unable to return home, your 72-hour emergency kit will provide you with the essentials that you might need to survive for up to 3 days. I carry my Scout Bag with me whenever I leave the house because I have been stranded on the side of the road for a long period of time and learned the hard way what was needed. This deluxe 72 Hour Emergency Kit fulfills the essential requirements for the 8 areas of preparedness including water, food, light, heat, shelter, communication, first aid and sanitation. In fact, many who do have such a kit will often readjust it from time to time for the season or changing circumstances.
In my Scout Bag (actually two bags) I carry most of what is on the list but I also have some other survival items that I myself find most useful these are: A heavy blanket, a tarp for emergency shelter, saw saw for cutting wood, three different ways to make fire, flares, emergency road signs, a can of gas (one gallon), tools for mechanical, one pistol with a box of shells and a survival 22 rifle that stores inside the stock and a box of shells, one of my compound bows and arrows, a peculator to heat water and a Army style cooking pan that has a food tray on top ( I can cook with this also), emergency radio, head lamp and regular flashlight, Army Style Jungle Hammock, medical kit, a emergency fishing kit, a pay for minutes phone as a backup, some carpentry tools like a chisel and small hammer, nails, heavy garbage bags, a pint of pure grain alcohol, dietary supplements that gives me everything my body needs for one day as well as herbal, and last but not least my CB Radio.
