Emergency Earthquake Kit


Earthquake Survival Kits are essential for any family households living in earthquake areas. These Emergency Earthquake Kits keep your family safe in a time of emergency. You know the old saying, "It's better to be safe than sorry." Be prepared in case disaster strikes with an earthquake emergency kit.

I lived in Southern California almost on top of the San Andreas Fault line for many years so I know! California rocks, and it rolls too! We had more than a few major earthquakes when I lived there, and you never know when it might happen again. Be prepared!

And anything you need for earthquake emergencies holds true for all the other natural disasters that can occur. Right now it's hurricane season and the East coast has been battered with a huge one and there is lots of flooding. You never know when Mother Nature is going to decide to let loose! 

Here you will find wilderness survival kits and some of the supplies that are in them in case you already have a kit and are just adding more supplies.

Short List of Supplies You Should Have in An Emergency Survival Kit

Survival Kit List

For most people who prepare for Emergencies, it means having a Bug Out Bag. A short list of supplies follows:

Food and water

Clothing, things that mix and match

Toiletries

Cash and Credit Cards

Vital Documents (Identification, Medical Records, Prescriptions, Family Photographs)

Shelter (at minimum a large poncho which could be tied down but a tent is better)

Useful Tools (such as flashlights, matches and other fire starting tools)

First Aid Kit

Small Knife

Solar Lights

Radio

Your Bug Out Bag should be packed and ready to go at a moment’s notice; food and water should be checked regularly and replaced when necessary. 

Set up a schedule to rotate your older items to your home pantry and add new ones to the Bug Out Bag.

So besides your Prepared Emergency Survival Kits with all the tools, add your personal items from this list , and you are prepared to survive if the worst happens and you need to get by without all the modern technology we are used to.

Emergency Supplies for Earthquakes and Disasters

Water Filter


The most important thing you need to survive in the event of an emergency is clean water! If you do nothing else, prepare to be able to filter your water so it's safe to drink. Humans cannot survive more than about 3 days without water. We can survive without food for much longer. But water is essential to life. In case you run out of water, a water filter will allow you to have clean water from whatever water source you encounter. This would also work if you are traveling and are not sure the water is safe.


Water for Emergencies


In case you want to take water with you, these packets have pure water and will be safe to drink for at least 5 years.


Radio for Emergencies and Earthquakes


If all Hell breaks loose, you will need a radio to keep up with announcements. This is great in any emergency situation!

A fire starter is very handy to have because who wants to rub sticks together to start a fire? Not me! This little tool makes it very easy. Hmm, maybe it would help in the fireplace too!

If you are in an emergency situation and need shelter, a mylar tent will keep you cozy and warm and it is lightweight so easy to carry in a backpack or a bag. Then when you are ready to pitch your tent, it is very easy to do!

  1. This is a timely article since I just returned from a week of hurricane evacuation because of Hurricane Matthew affecting my area in coastal Georgia. Having lived in hurricane prone areas for a number of years, I do have my 'evacuation' kit ready to go. In fact, it's quite interesting to read your article today, Heather, because I almost wrote one about the same thing because of my recent experience. :)

    1. Yes the recent floods did trigger my article. Earthquakes and floods can both happen in a heartbeat!

  2. People don't think it will happen to them, but it DOES happen to regular, everyday people. No matter where you live, a natural disaster, even a house fire, can occur at any time, with no warning. Great reminder to be prepared!

  3. Sadly we don't always think of being prepared, but we should. A disaster can strike at any time and it's always best to be prepared. You have assembled a great selection here, I never knew you could buy water pouches like that. Thanks for the ideas.

  5. Doesn't just to be earthquakes or floods. We lose power regularly so have had to set up an emergency plan and supplies in case we lose power too long. Great kits to make it easier to be prepared.

    1. Yes, there are many reasons! Tornadoes or power failures can be emergencies too!

  6. Being prepared beforehand is always excellent advice! My biggest problem is finding a place to store things. I really like the backpack emergency kits where things are kept together in one place. What I had never thought of is the fire starter! I need one of those for my backpack of essentials for sure.

  7. Such good advice and good information. I'd be in trouble... all of my important documents are scattered hither and yon. This article makes me realize that I should at least have those papers all in one place!
