These days you can purchase a whole range ready made emergency disaster kits, the problem is – most of them are rubbish and they don’t contain items that are required for your family’s specific needs. The bottom line is – it is a much better idea to put your own emergency preparedness kit together.
If you are thinking about putting your own kit together, I would highly recommend giving some thought to creating a disaster preparation bucket. This basically means you will be storing your kit in a five gallon bucket with a lid. The main benefits of creating a disaster preparedness bucket are that five gallon buckets are cheap, durable and watertight. They are also easily found in an emergency and they are portable.
