When packing food into your 72 hour kit, remember to use shelf stable, non perishable foods that will last a while. I cannot stress enough about the importance of food and water in your Emergency Survival Station. If you dont have time to put together your own emergency kit, you can purchase a preassembled kit at Shelf Reliance.
It’s amazing how fast the weight in your pack can add up, especially when adding in water and food! The purpose for this station is to have the means to survive an emergency for at least 72 hours, all in one place.

If the public water system becomes contaminated for any amount of time & you don’t have an emergency supply of water, you will need to know how to effectively treat water in order to remove pathogens for safe drinking. Water is used for so MANY reasons besides drinking, including cooking, washing hands, brushing teeth, even bathing in an emergency. Being able to add to your water supply at the last moment as the article states is a wise idea but remember that you can really ONLY count what you have physically stored. We are still following your 8 week emergency plan (with minor adjustments as we deem neccessary). You also need to store at least 3 days worth of “easy to prepare” food (with a long shelf life).

We decided to use these Emergency Back Packs as our GHB (get home bags) and be in the corresponding vehicle that our family members are most likely to be in while away.
