Three Day Emergency Pack

Storms, Floods, Fires, Earthquakes, Power outages...

There are many, many reasons that an emergency might disrupt your life and the lives of your family or community. An emergency or bug-out pack can be very helpful to assist in getting us through that emergency. Every kit may be uniquely different or designed according to your own perceptions. In designing a pack you will think about and prioritize what you see as valuable and appropriate for your level of skill and knowledge and needs.
