Emergency Preparedness Kit Recommendations Compare Survival Kits


After the events of the last week or so, I started to think about the residents of Boston being asked to stay indoors during the manhunt. It didn’t last long, but what if it had? What if, instead of a request to stay indoors, the city was locked down for days or weeks?

In a case like this, having emergency supplies can really reduce the stress of the situation. First aid supplies, emergency food and water can all make you feel better about having to shelter in place for a prolonged period of time.

This could happen if there is a disease outbreak or a terrorist attack. Really, even severe weather could result in you being “stranded” at home, so the idea isn’t as far fetched as you may think.

Have you thought about what you’d need if you had to shelter in place for a period of time?
