A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Ready-to-eat canned foods - vegetables, fruits, beans, meat, fish, poultry, pasta, soup, juice. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
Each family or individual's kit should be customized to meet specific needs, such as medications and infant formula.
The emergency supply kit should be robust and contain enough food, water, medications and other consumables to last seven to ten days.
If a disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for some time.
American Preparedness is a Service Disabled Veterans owned business that has designed the 7204 emergency preparedness kit to support four people for 72 hours (three days).

High energy foods - peanut butter, jelly, nuts, dried meat (for example, jerky), granola, trail mix, energy bars. Some of these items, especially those marked with a * can be dangerous, so please have an adult collect these supplies. It's best to assume that in the event of an emergency or natural disaster, roads will be inaccessible by vehicles, and public transportation will be shut down. All New Yorkers should have some basic supplies on hand in order for a family to survive if an emergency occurs.
Following is a list of basic items (based on a family of four to survive for seven to ten days) that every emergency supply kit should include.
At work, try to include a pair of comfortable shoes in case you need to walk to a shelter area.
Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately.

Rethink your clothing and bedding supplies to account for growing children and other family changes.
Whether it's preparedness for floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, or fires, the key to survival in disasters is planning.
Here are some steps you can take to help your family stay safer and healthier during and after a disaster. At least one gallon of water per day per person for 3-5 days, two quarts a day for drinking and two quarts for food preparation and sanitation.
The 7204 contains enough food rations, water and other emergency supplies, such as emergency space blankets, flashlights, water-resistant radio with batteries and emergency ponchos to provide 4 people with the items needed to assist in surviving a natural or man made disaster.
