This kit may or may not be enough. What type emergency are you preparing for? If it is T.E.O.T.W.A.W.K.I. Then you aren't even close.

I've had an emergency kit sitting in my basement for a while but I don't feel it is complete. I've got family members depending on me.
How long do you think I should plan for? I'm in Ontario Canada.
So far I've got:
AM radio ( batteries)
quartz wrist watch
can and bottle opener
swiss army knife
bottled water ( how often should I replace it?)
first aid kit
flash light ( batteries)
