LAN World Announces the New Standard in 72 Hour Survival Kits Complete with Firearm
Sun protection (sunglasses and sunscreen)- Protection from the elements is a very important consideration when shelter may be unavailable. Previous articles have addressed hats and rainwear. Sun protection is no less important. Insulation (extra clothing)- This was hovered in a previous article. It would be wise to include an emergency space blanket as well. Illumination (headlamp/flashlight)- An emergency kit includes a flashlight. If its not already part of your everyday carry gear, or even if it is, having a flashlight in your kit is imperative for low light situations. Power outages are common in all forms of emergencies. First-aid supplies- Having a first aid kit, and the knowledge to use its contents, is perhaps the single most important skill each member of the family can possess. First aid kit contents will be addressed in an upcoming article, but in the meantime, consider getting the skills necessary to save lives. Fire (waterproof matches/lighter/candles)- Hopefully the nature of an emergency will not see people living in the woods, huddled around campfires for warmth, but the 72 hour kit should have the means to create a fire if needed.

Your Family’s 72 Hour Kit
The key to a 72 hour kit is size. I have seen some of my Mormon sisters make kits for their car using large coffee cans. Each can contains enough for one person for 72 hours, so when driving in winter they can put one can for each family member in the trunk. I have seen kits done in backpacks and in plastic shoeboxes. A large home kit can be done in a tote that used to store clothes. In your 72 hour kit you should place the following items: 1. Food that is compact, shelf stable and nutrient dense. Examples of this would be dried fruit, nuts, protein bars, protein shakes that can be made with water and cans of vienna sausage or bags of beef jerkey.

What should you have in a 72-hour emergency kit?
I have alreaady started to do so, but will be adding to the list. Thanks again!!! Granny Mae All of this sounds real good and I have always had an emergency kit in my car but to have everything listed I would have to carry a small trailer with me all the time just to be safe!!! First of all to carry extra meds. with me in my car it wouldnt take long before they would not be good to take. In my area it gets very hot in my car every day, so to leave medicine and fuel for cooking etc. is very dangerous. Now if I were planning a long distant trip I would and have taken my bug out back pack.
