Make a 72-Hour Kit in 12 Steps: Step 12 – Additional Supplies

By April 14, 2009 5 Comments

In the event of a natural disaster, having additional emergency supplies would be worthwhile. These items are not the same items in our 72-hour backpacks, but additional items we may find useful. These will look like camping supplies to most of you which they are to us too.

You can separate these items into 5 or 6 gallon buckets, totes, or additional bags. Obviously you can’t carry all of these on foot by yourself, but you could load them into a vehicle if you could drive away. Or they are kept together in a closet for easy access at home. Having them ready to go if you had to evacuate would save a lot of valuable time. Here is a list of some emergency supplies our family is gathering.


5-gallon Bucket #1 –

  • List of items in bucket
  • Bucket lid (not Gamma lid if adding toilet seat)
  • Family-sized First Aid Kit (update every 6 months. Could be used to help others. Put near top)
  • Sun block
  • Insect repellant
  • Emergency flares
  • 50 Purification tablets
  • Water filtration bottle
  • Can opener
  • Large 30 gallon trash bags
  • Mess kits (if can’t fit in pack)
  • Paper plates, paper bowls, paper cups, plastic utensils
  • Paper towels, small roll
  • Foil
  • Small bottle of dish soap or camp soap
  • Small bottle of disinfectant
  • American Red Cross First Aid books

5-gallon Bucket #2 –

  • Leather work gloves (put near top or in 72-hour kit)
  • Large tarp
  • Folding shovel
  • Hatchet
  • Whet stone
  • 50 ft. nylon cord
  • Duct tape
  • Small folding cook stove with fuel
  • Small hand broom
  • Pliers and wrench
  • Crowbar/prybar
Additional Items:

  • Toilet seat lid made to fit on bucket
  • Cases of bottled water (*what you can’t put in your backpacks)
  • Water container to refill at evacuation shelter: tote, bucket above, or jug with spout
  • Walkie Talkies
  • Battery powered TV
  • Chainsaw w/extra blade
  • Extra fuel 5-gallon gas cans

    These are excellent lists. Pretty similar to what we carry in our van. We rotate our bucket contents by season. Spring and again in Fall.

    I’d add one item to your bucket #2. A small whet stone for the hatchet will come in very handy. From experience I can tell you they dull quickly when used.

    I added the whet stone to bucket #2. Thank you, LJ!

    Just a thought but, evacuation by car doesn't seem practical. At best it will be nothing short of 5 o'clock traffic magnified 100 times over, grid lock will result and you will be stuck in your car. wouldn't it more practical to make a "bugout" backpack?

  • UtahMOMof7 says:

    Our evacuation by foot items are our 72 hour Kit Backpacks. These buckets hold additional supplies if we had more time to evacuate. I'll try to make that clear in my post.

I liked what he was doing so I tried to get him represented by the gallery where I worked, the Marlborough. They found the work a bit sloppy and silly, so I started selling the odd drawing on his behalf for seven or eight pounds and not taking a cut. When I set up my own gallery in 1963, Hockney was one of the first people I arranged to represent.

    After graduation, the interest rate is linked to earnings: the more you earn, the higher the rate will be. Those earning less than £21,000 pay an inflation-linked return (so zero interest in real terms); those earning £41,000 or more will pay RPI plus three percentage points. Between these two amounts, graduates will pay interest on a sliding scale, which means that for every £1,000 you earn over £21,000, you will pay an extra 0.15 percentage points interest.
