One lesson we can immediately learn from the devastating earthquake in Japan of March 11, 2011 about how to survive an earthquake is that you should be prepared with some basic supplies in an earthquake survival kit to have on hand when an earthquake hits. In order to survive an earthquake you should put together an earthquake survival kit in a backpack or bag of supplies that you can get to in a moments notice in an emergency situation that will contain an emergency supply of these vital needs in it. This is a photo of one of the many pre-made commercial earthquake survival kits that are for sale at many online vendors. Your earthquake survival kit should include a tent or large tarp (or tarps) to use as a temporary shelter in case your home is destroyed. You should choose foods that are dehydrated, will last for a long time as they may be stored for a long time in your earthquake survival kit, and are easy to prepare. It is important to include cooking supplies in your earthquake survival kit so you can prepare the foods that you have packed.
Be sure to pack waterproof matches and a portable cook stove, as well as enough fuel for your stove to last 3-5 days. If you or any member of your household takes any prescription or over-the-counter medications on a daily basis, you should include a 3-5 day supply of these medications in your earthquake survival kit.
If you take insulin or blood pressure medications, this part of your earthquake survival kit could mean the difference between life and death.
Now, this is a lot of gear to get together, but most of these things are already in your home, you just need to gather them all together in one bag for easy access.
Once you have the essentials covered, add personal hygiene and sanitation items to the kit — large trash bags and cans, toilet paper and household liquid chlorine laundry bleach.


A “bug out bag” or BOB is an extensive survival kit and you can grab and go in case of a disaster. If you live in an area where there is a chance of an earthquake or hurricanes then you should have an earthquake or hurricane survival kit.

It contains food, water, shelter, survival tools, weapons, ammunition, clothing, first aid and personal items. A more comprehensive kit would include supplies to keep you or a group going for several days or weeks.
If a disaster strikes while you are at work, a get home bag can provide you with the essentials you may need for a few hours. In the event of an emergency or disaster you can grab this and take off without wasting valuable time searching for and packing items you might need.
