Having a 72 hour kit that is more or less centered around your climate is a pretty smart practice, I think. Here in California earthquake country, we remind folks that can openers in emergency kits need to be hand operated. If you are making a 72 hour kit you will need 3 gallons of water per person…it is 1 gallon per person per day!

Here in Alabama as we approach tornado season, there is a Tax Free Weekend, February 21 -23, for all emergency supplies purchases. Also as a few people have mentioned, the most important, is to make your plan for an emergency, know it and even practice it. The bandanna is up there in the lists with plastic garbage bags and duct tape when discussing versatility for emergency uses.

As advised by Red Cross, it is also important to prepare a kit for each member of your family who is able to carry one.
