Printable Emergency Preparedness Supply List – What To Stock Up On For a 3-Day Supply

emergency preparedness



With the east coast blizzard #Blizzardof2015 all over the weather news, it has reminded me to think about what our family should have on hand in case of an emergency.  I live in Upstate NY, so we will miss the blizzard this time.  But that doesn’t mean we could be without power for a few days in a future weather related event!

The longest I’ve been without power was during an ice storm in the 90’s – 5 days without power.  It seemed like an eternity. At the time, I was thankful my parents were prepared and we were warm during our 5 day indoor campout.  :)

As an adult with my own family now, I need to be responsible and think about what if that happened again and I needed to be prepared to keep my family safe, warm, and fed.

Here is a list of items that is a good idea to store in a large Rubbermaid container or two, and have on hand in case of an emergency.  It’s is great to take inventory on these items, and pick them up when we find a great sale or coupon deal to have on hand.  I found this list from Tops Friendly Markets (link no longer available) and modified and updated it a bit.

3-Day Emergencey Supply Checklist:

*Water:  1 gallon per person per day.  Fill plastic containers, such as soft-drink bottles or emptied and clean milk jugs.

*Bleach for water purifing (use eight drops of regular bleach per gallon of water.) – Or purchase a portable water filter that are popular for camping.

*Essential prescription or OTC medications

*First-aid kit that includes:

20 bandages of various sizes
Alcohol-based sanitizer and wipes
Medical grade latex or non-latex gloves
Anti-bacterial ointment
Cold pack – chemically activated
Small scissors
Tweezers

*Ready-toeat, non-perishable foods, such as canned meats, fruits and vegetables, granola bars, instant soup and cereals, canned or box juices, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, trail mix, and any special dietary items you and your family need.  (like coffee or chocolate ;)  )

Consider investing in an Emergency Supply of Food that can last your and your family up to a month.

*Manual can opener

*Baby supplies:  formula, bottle, pacifier, soap, clothing, blankets, baby wipes, disposable diapers, canned baby food and juices.

*Pet supplies:  food, water, leash and carrier.  (If you need to go to a shelter, remember that most do not allow pets.)

*Large, plastic trash bags for waste, and to be used as possible tarps or rain ponchos

*Towelettes or abti-bacerial wipes

*Bar soap and liquid detergent

*Shampoo

*Feminine hygiene supplies

*Toilet paper

*Toothpaste and toothbrush
