SHELTER IS FIRST, EMERGENCY WATER IS SECOND
I have noticed that a lot of folks, while thinkin on survival supply, I have seen them puttin food storage ahead of water.
In many types of disasters, one's abode might be wrecked, leavin one homeless, for the moment.
If there is danger, of exposure to the elements, such as sun, heat, or cold, then shelter becomes the first need. In a mild and temperate climate, shelter may more safely be neglected, in order for you to attend to water.
Water is more important in a strictured situation, it is more important than food.
I would say, don't even think on food, until after you have mastered the arts of supplying yourself with water.
There are 2 grades of water: drinking-and-cooking water, and washing grade.
Nitro-Pak's "Executive Kit" supplies you with more than 6 quarts of water, portioned in 24 pouches. That is a bit more than 2 quarts per day.
EMERGENCY KITS - SURVIVAL KITS
At the same time, it is advisable to plactice our skills plenty, before the time that the disaster may come to us.
Therefore, I recommend that you have 2 survival kits. One kit is stashed for the time of the actual emergency. The other kit is used to practice our skills.
72 Hours Survival Kits Versus Bug Out Bags
There is a distinction to be made, between the 72 hour survival kit, and the "bug-out kit". The principle behind the "bug out bag" presumes that we are going to be displaced, and, perhaps for a longer time, than 72 hours. It is a kit for one who is, for the moment, itinerant, or separated from one's fixed abode.

Besides having an emergency survival kit, we need also long-term strategies for emergency supply, after the supplies in our kit have been used up. Here I am referring to such ideas as gardening, foraging, and possibly even diplomacy and trade between our group and other groups.
The emergency may last more than 3 days. The kit keeps our mind free to respond to the emergency without being totally occupied with urgent food, shelter, and water demands.
The kit buys us 3 days to work on "bigger issues".
First aid might be needed. A kit is not enough. We ought to take a course & to do weekly or monthly practice with a second kit, to see if we want to add more supplies to our kit. I'll not talk about first aid here, there is a whole department for that topic in this web site.
The topic, of long-term survival food, we should also master, and I have made in this website also a department to help you to think about it.
The biggest preparation, that we can make, is to be part of a team, to pre-arrange a rendezvous point, and to rehearse our skills, such as water purefying and fire-making, long in advance of the arrival of the time of emergency.
The more folks on our team, the more specialists we can have access to. If each member is a specialist, then each of us does not have to learn or master every single skill.
However there should be more than one fire specialist, water specialist, food specialist, first aid specialist, and so on, in case one of them becomes separated from the team by any hap.
Whatever you order, through this page, goes to the benefit of the Tru U., and its supporters!
