  • Candles and matches or lighter
  • Flashlight and batteries
  • Battery-powered radio or television, and extra batteries
  • Duct tape
  • Non-perishable food (this should be replaced every year)
  • Bottled water
  • Whistle (in case you need to attract someone’s attention)
  • Playing cards or games
  • Toilet paper and other personal care supplies
  • Basic tools (hammer, pliers/wrench, screwdriver set, assortment of fasteners)
  • Extra car and house keys
  • Extra cash (also change for vending machines etc.) 
  • Copies of important family documents (i.e. birth certificates)
