Kits: Read a quick comparison of premade emergency kits, plus recommendations of items that you may want to add and a three-step emergency safety plan. A variety of first-aid kits -- from individual to family size -- are available for sale at the American Red Cross store.

If you are preparing an emergency kit for a natural disaster, you probably know to include nonperishable food and first-aid kits. You should periodically ensure that the contents of the kit are in working order and rotate the food rations.

Field test: And, for a little levity to balance all the disaster talk, we offer this piece from a reporter who tested her emergency kit by trying to live off it.

The American Red Cross recommends each household have a backpack with emergency supplies for evacuation. If you live in Idaho, your kit needs more emphasis on keeping you warm than if you live in Alabama.
