Emergency kits for home, car or disaster are available online and some may be obtained for free with a purchase from websites such as SurvivalistFood.com. Free checklists are also available online to assist with creating an emergency kit. An emergency kit is something every vehicle should have according to DMV.org.
Emergency kits are intended for long-term disasters and may include many items such as cell phones, gallons of water and medications, which is the reason most emergency kits include lists for users to refer to when creating their own personalized kit. An emergency kit should be easy to carry, portable and fully equipped with the proper supplies, according to RedCross.org.
