We designed our 72 housr emergency kits to meet Canadian government recommendations for emergency preparedness. In the event of an emergency you can grab it and go, knowing you have the necessary supplies to survive until help arrives.
In some situations, Emergencies such as tornadoes, wild fires, earthquakes, floods … can happen at any moment leaving us without life sustaining essentials such as drinking water, food, light, heat and shelter.
Therefore it is very important to be prepared before such emergency events occur. The Canadian government recommends having an emergency earthquake kit on hand with enough supplies to last at least 72 hours.
Belows are some of our necessary supplies that we would like to introduce to keep in mind when make a 72 hours list.
