In the case of a large emergency, there may not be any electricity or gas which means there will be no way to cook or refrigerate your food. Having a large selection of canned, ready-to-eat food will be to your benefit of survival. Purchased Emergency Food Rations and Emergency Water from the American Red Cross usually last 5 years before they expire. Good to have prior to any type of disaster that may strike.
Get some kind of bag and store important documents, food cans, water and first aid supplies just in case you need to emergency exit. Below is a list of our 72 hour emergency kit you need to have prepared before a disaster strikes.
