Today we are going to be talking about food storage! In an emergency disaster, people believe water and some foods are important, but mainly water. What happens when you have all this water and not enough food? What good is water without food, or visa/versa?

A lot of people have asked me what goes in a 72 hour kit if they ever needed to just pack up and leave. Have you ever wondered the same thing? Are you able to react in time to protect your family at all cost in an emergency? Most of the time if we have an emergency it does not last that long, somewhere between 24 to 72 hours and then the emergency response teams usually gets things back under control. For those of you, who live in Southern California; can you remember the power outage in 2012? I took that opportunity and sat outside on my carport and watched all my neighbors come outside and visit with each other wondering what was going on. I sat there in my folding chair with my feet kicked up drinking nice cold water bottle, listing to the radio (battery operated) with my family. The neighbors started to walk over just to listen to the news on my radio in order to find out why there was a power outage. I did realize that no one in my neighborhood was prepared for this, but if they would have followed just a few small steps, they too could have been prepared.
The list below is what I have in my 72 hour kit, please feel free to add or take away for your own needs.
