Basic emergency kit
Hi guys, I live in Bogotá Colombia and right now we’re in imminent earthquake danger as you might know. I have a basic idea of an emergency kit.
- 2L of water per person per day. (add another L per person one per person will do, not one per day per person for cleaning of wounds and such)
- At least 3 days of canned, dried food. High cal granola bars and candy.
- Blankets or sleeping bags. (add up to 5 days if you way out 3 days is good for city folk)
- Flashlights and tons of extra batteries. (add wind up or shake LED light, and forget the batteries)
- FM/AM radio (add wind up or solar radio and forget the batteries)
- Matches and something to use as a fire starter
- Med kit and iodine for the water.
- Dust masks
- Candles, matches
- Canned gas (I’ve been wondering if this is such a good idea) (add solid fuel tabs or sterno and forget the liquid.)
- Plastic to cover the windows (add blue tarp for roof replacement and or outside shelter)
If you know any other things I should take into consideration please tell me. I would would appreciate it.

If you have a baby, stock up on enough baby supplies such as diapers, small jars of baby food, wipes, clothes, and such for two weeks or more. (You may not be able to wash clothes the minute the water and electricity come back on.) Water is one of the essentials for a baby. you will need a lot more with a baby because almost every thing you do with a baby requires water. I'll post more latter I'm a little pressed for time at the moment.
