If a national disaster debilitated our infrastructure, many of the items below would become impossible to acquire. That’s why it’s important to have the necessary quantities before it’s too late.

Water

Homeland Security recommends one gallon of water per person per day. A family of four would require 28 gallons of water for 7 days.

Food

Choose food you like and food that will last without refrigeration. Canned foods with high liquid content are important because they will provide you with the hydration your body needs. Even canned food can spoil so always check your tasty grub before devouring it. Also, avoid foods that will make you thirsty. I would also recommend stocking up on Chocolate, nuts, vitamins, peanut butter, canned juice and milk.

Beer/Alcohol

Once the TV and internet are no longer functionable, enjoying merriment with friends and family will be the next big thing. And everyone will be wishing they had a bigger supply of drinks! Even if you don’t drink it you could easily barter with it.

Radio

Have a battery powered radio and NOAA Weather Radio ready with batteries

Flashlight

Have a flashlight for each person ready with batteries

Extra Batteries

Batteries will become one of the most sought after commodities once electricity is out for more than a couple of days. You could be rich with electricity!

First Aid Kit

Have a kit that includes antisyptic, bandage materials and any special medical supplies and medication you will need in the following weeks

Whistle

To communicate long distances or signal for help

Sanitation

Moist towelettes, extra tooth brushes and tooth paste, soap, feminine supplies, disinfectant, bleach, and plastic bags for disposal of waste

Dust Mask

Make a dust mask out of cotton clothing or buy one from the store

Plastic and Duct Tape

To secure your shelter place or mend any faults

Tools

Wrenches and pliers to turn off utilities or to work on mechanics. Lighters and matches. Kindling and wood.

Weapons

In case you need to hunt or even if you need to protect your family and friends.

Can Opener

So you can open your canned food!

Clothes

Montana gets cold so be sure to have at least one dry pair of clothing including jacket, shoes, pants, long sleeve shirt, hat, and gloves. Basically your entire ski outfit.

Books

Survival books, cook books, and enjoyable books

Bedding

Warm blankets and sleeping bags. At least one per person
