My Basic Bad Weather Survival Kits

Basis Bug-in Kit
You may need to shelter-in-place or stay in your home during an extended power cut. You and your family need to be prepared to do this for at least 72 hours (you may already have some of these items in your Family Emergency Bug-Out Bag).

Store at least a 3-day supply for each member of your family.
Children, nursing mothers and people who are ill require more water.
Non-perishable food
Store at least a 3-day supply and select foods that require no refrigeration, preparation or cooking, and little or no water.
First aid supplies
Purchase a complete first aid kit and first aid manual.
Add personal care items such as toothpaste and soap, toilet rolls and a supply of non-prescription drugs
Tools and supplies, such as:
Battery-operated radio, Torch and extra batteries
Lantern and fuel, candles, fire lighting kit.
Compass, matches in a waterproof container, signal flare, whistle
Pocket knife or multi-tool
Clothing & bedding, such as:
1 change of clothing and footwear per person
Rain gear
Blankets or sleeping bags
Special items
Keep important family records and documents in a waterproof, portable container or a bank safety deposit box including:
Photo ID (passports, driver's license, etc...)
Bank account, credit card numbers and a small amount of cash
Photos of family members in case you are separate
Store items in a waterproof pack or dufflebag and make sure everyone knows where to find it.

Basic Kit for Family Members with Special Needs
Include medications, denture needs, corrective lenses, hearing aids and batteries for family members with special needs, such as children and elderly or disabled persons, as well as in your Bug-Out-Bag.
Extra wheelchair batteries, oxygen, medication, catheters, food for service animal(s), plus other special equipment you might need.
A list of individuals to contact in the event of an emergency.
A list of the style and serial numbers of medical devices, such as pacemakers.
Also, store back-up equipment, such as a manual wheelchair, at a neighbour’s home, school or your workplace.
Keep the shut-off switch for oxygen equipment near your bed to reach it quickly if there is a fire.

Basic Car Survival Kit
Carry a Car Survival Kit – every driver should have:
Jump Leads
Vehicle fluids
Emergency flares
A survival candle
Survival blankets for each person
First aid equipment
Bottled water for each person
High energy Cereal Bars
Self-heating meals for each person plus relevant cutlery
Small Tarp (for blocking broken windows etc.)
Battery/wind up radio
Local map
Motorway map
Basic Pet and Service Animal Kit
I suggest your kit includes the following items:
72 hour supply of food, bowls and can opener
72 hour supply of bottled water
Medical records, especially proof of vaccination (note that most boarding facilities will not accept pets without proof of current vaccination records)
Current photo of pet in case he gets lost
ID tag (microchipping also recommended)
Check it twice a year to ensure freshness of food, water and medication and to restock any items you may have borrowed.


  1. Your lists are excellent! In a state of calamity, one should be well prepared for whatever may happen. Having survival kits placed in one place is very proficient. For me, I always see to it that I buy canned goods and bottled water every time I'll be running out of supply. It's because I learned my lesson from the past calamity, wherein we got flooded for few days. Getting food that day was quite hard.
