What to Store in an Emergency Home Kit


In times of uncertainty, it is always best to plan ahead. 

You should keep plan to keep at least two weeks worth of non perishable food on hand in an air tight container, in a cool dark place. 

Other important items that should be stored and readily available are candles, matches, a solar powered radio, solar flash lights, enough cash to get you through at least two weeks. Emergency medication supply. Make sure your vehicle gas tank is full.
