Does anyone here make emergency kits? I know everyone makes First Aid Kits(FAK) and Personal Survival Kits (PSK's) but what about an emergency kit? I am a Scoutmaster in a Boy Scout Troop and one of the things all the boys in the troop make are Emergency kits. I do have to say that it is very similar to PSK in many ways but in many ways it is different. It is something they can grab and give them the needed essentials to survive for a few days if the need arises. The boys make their kits in case of floods, power outages etc. Imagine Hurricane Katrina type disaster. The kit tends to be larger and contains essentials they need to survive for a few days (including the needs of their families) until they are rescued etc. The kit is kept in something that they or someone in their family can quickly grab as they exit their house, usually a medium sized duffel bag. It usually contains food (usually canned or dried preserved), water, matches, plastic bags (from garbage bag sized to small), water purification tabs, toliet paper, pencil and paper, meds for at least a few days, a small first aid kit, spare seeing glasses etc. Each boy's kit is slightly different because each person has their own unique needs for a few days, for example meds etc. What is everyone's thoughts on this?
