Survival Kit Worksheet

“OK, I’m clear I need a survival kit.”

Backpack for survivalWe’re all familiar with the concept of a survival kit.

We usually picture a backpack that we can grab at a moment’s notice and that will carry us through a 3-day emergency until things get back to normal or we are taken under the wing of some helpful rescue organization.

But have you thought through . . .

  • What should really be IN the backpack?
  • How should MY backpack differ from YOURS?
  • How many kits do I actually need?

Wait . . .

“You mean I need more than just one?”

Of course you do!  What are the chances of the whole family being together, at home, when the disaster hits?!

Here’s a worksheet we’ve put together to get started on answering these basic questions. (You may have seen the worksheet before. We think it’s an essential tool!)

Go over the worksheet with your family, and share it with your neighborhood group before anyone starts actually putting a kit together or buying a pre-built kit. The instructions are simple, right there at the top.

Survival Kit Worksheet

Because we think survival kits are so essential, we’ve addressed the topic many times and from a number of different perspectives.

Here are some articles I think will be helpful. (There are more on the site. Use the search box in the upper right-hand corner to look up particular topics.)

You may want to check pertinent articles out BEFORE you start shopping for emergency kits and supplies!

We’ll be adding more on this topic. But this is a solid starter.

What we want to avoid is a situation like we saw repeated over an over again when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas — people struggling onto rescue boats carrying belongings in a ratty plastic bag, a pillow case, or climbing in empty handed. Disaster!
