After a natural disaster, the most crucial time period for survival is the first 72 hours. It can be difficult to make it through these hours just because they are the ones that are going to be the worst out of the entire disaster. Usually things are not well organized yet and assistance may not even be to the area yet. People are left on their own having to find ways to survive.
Since I know that the first 72 hours are crucial, I have spent a bit of time packing some different kinds of kits for my family members that give them everything that they need to survive the first 72 hours after a disaster. These 72 hour emergency survival kits include great items like food and water supplies, matches, and many other items as well that will be helpful.
Being able to have just the right kinds of kits that my family can use to survive is something that is so important to me. I am really hopeful that in some kind of natural disaster, we would have a much better chance just because of the different kits that we will have stored in our home all the time.
